Martin Family Charters

Based just out of Orlando, Martin Family Charters will take you to the best freshwater fishing Florida has to offer. Explore the numerous lakes that combine to make the Butler Chain, going after exciting and delicious fish. Captain Tim Martin runs a personalized business that allows him to combine his two passions – family and fishing. Come aboard and get your family hooked on fishing.

You’ll drift along the abundant lakes aboard a 24’ Sea Born bay boat. Reaching speeds of up to 45 knots, thanks to its 250 HP Suzuki four stroke, you’ll get out and on the sweet spots promptly and comfortably. There’s plenty of rods, reels, and tackle on board, as well as enough space for up to 5 anglers to fish at once. Equipped with a fishfinder and GPS, you can expect productive fishing all day long.

Prepare for a battle of the minds with the crafty Largemouth Bass. These smart fish won’t be tricked twice with the same bait or lure, so make sure you hook them at once. The biggest of the Bass family, your muscles are in for a real workout as you try to reel in this gem. Capt. Tim has fished professionally and will use his expertise to help you get the fish on the boat before releasing them back to their habitat.

Trips run year-round, so pick a date that suits you and get on your way. Don’t forget to pick up your Florida freshwater fishing license before coming aboard. Drinks are provided so just bring some sunscreen to stay safe and some snacks to keep the munchies away. Martin Family Charters looks forward to giving you a day to remember, so come and fulfill your fishing fantasies.
