Captain
Norm Bekoff

Member since October 2016 Fort Lauderdale, United States
Background
I grew up on sportfish boats and have fished everywhere from Massachusetts to St. Thomas, USVI and the Gulf of Mexico. However offshore South Florida is home. I got my captain's license at 19 and have been on boats ever since. So when you book Finest Kind you're getting home-grown fishing experience, not someone who left the rat race up north, bought a boat and thinks he can make a go of it.
Techniques
Light tackle live bait and trolling is our specialty.
