Blue Fin Fishing Charters

(31) Going fast!

Come aboard Blue Fin Fishing Charters and find out what’s it like to fish with Captain Robert - the most experienced captain in the area! Match his 45 years of angling experience with your passion for fishing, and you get a trip that will set the scale for all the fishing trips yet to come.

Your boat for the day, the ‘Blue Fin’, is a 38’ Miami Yacht with a 375 HP Detroit that guarantees you will spend more time fishing and less time waiting around. She is a classic and has a walkaround deck, with teak covered decking and safety railing. The vessel also has outriggers and downriggers, to ensure you come home with an impressive catch.

Capt. Robert specializes in Shark fishing, and on his trips, bottom fishing and trolling reign supreme. Depending on the trip you choose, you can expect to hook anything from Scups and Spanish Mackerel to Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and Black Seabass.

When it comes to Shark fishing, you will chase after Bull Sharks and Blacktips, as well as Hammerhead and Tiger Sharks, so you better come prepared to reel in those apex predators.

Bow fishing is also an option on the ‘Blue Fin’, so if that’s something you’ve always wanted to try out, this is your chance. This fishing technique is especially suitable for handicapped anglers and is the most fun way for them to catch fish.

You will get all the rods, reels, and tackle you need, and if you’re struggling with a particularly big fish, you have two fighting chairs to help you win the fight. The captain also provides free cleaning and filleting of anything tasty you might hook and free ice to pack your catch and take it home, just bring a cooler.

Your family, kids, friends, and yourself will have a wonderful time with Capt. Robert, who is not only experienced, but also eager to teach and very friendly.

Blue Fin Fishing Charters invites you to a fishing trip you will always remember with a big smile on your face!

In my youth, I served in the Navy and you could consider that's the time that I 'cut my teeth' on the ocean. It was clearly love at first sight. After leaving the Navy, I trained and spent some time as a Diesel mechanic, but it wasn't long before the ocean came calling. In 1974, I started my own charter fishing company and I haven’t looked back since. When I saw our boat ‘The Blue Fin’, I knew it would be the flagship of our fleet. Designed by the Navy to transport naval offices from ship to ship while at dock, it was built to be a tank. Considered to be one of the most stable rough water vessels, The Blue Fin is a very safe boat. This is my 45th year of operation. That's 45 years of knowledge and experience that translates into the best fishing experiences for our clients. Blue Fin Fishing Charters is committed to providing the best possible experience. You want the gills, we have the skills!
