Tarpon Fishing Charters – Miami, Biscayne Bay and Florida Keys

Hi and welcome, let me introduce my self….My name is Captain Jim Hale, Born in south Miami and fishing the inshore and offshore water of south Florida since the age of 8.
I began fishing with my father and grandfather, I am 3 rd generation of fisherman in my family and it’s my true passion. My family has been fishing the Everglades for over 7 decades let me show you some of the magic.

I am an avid fly fisherman for Tarpon snook, redfish, large mouth and peacock bass.
I am a Top water specialist as well for Bass snook tarpon, actually anything that swims.
I am a licensed Everglades fishing guide for over 20 years and I have been guiding south Florida for longer than that.

I have fished and captained the Galapagos Islands for 5 years, fished Panama, Costa Rica and Guatemala as well. My level of fishing knowledge is second to none.
I have 2 skiffs an Hellsbay Marquesa with an 115 Mercury Optimax that fishes very shallow.
I also have a 15 foot Inshore power boat that draws 2 inches of water, it is a true technical poling skiff for reds and snook in the Everglades and also a great boat that I use in the freshwater everglades for bass.
The species that I specialize in are Tarpon snook, redfish, bonefish, permit, trout, largemouth bass and peacock bass.

  • My best friend and my brother came down to Miami for a tarpon fishing charter. We took a trip with Florida Sportfishing Charters and were really happy with the experience. Captain Jim (or King James as we called him by the end of the day) is a very knowledgeable fishing guide with a great attitude. He knew where the fish were all day long. We are planning another trip down in a few months and will not even consider another captain. Thanks for a great time.
