Fishing together for the past several years Captain Tyler and mate Eric have developed the skills that it takes to produce fish even on the toughest days. Mama Tried Sportfishing Charters is new on the business scene but guided by two highly experienced anglers. From 4-hour relaxing nearshore trips, to 12-hour Gulf Stream spectacle, you’ll easily find something that’s perfect for your needs.

The fishing machine you’ll board is the captain’s 35’ center console. The boat accommodates up to 6 guests but 4 can fish at the same time. She’s equipped with 3 300 HP Yamaha engines that can cruise at an average speed of 35 knots. This speed is especially useful on offshore trips, allowing you to reach the fishing spots faster and fish longer.

Enjoy everything from nearshore fishing for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish, to Gulf Stream fishing for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Marlin, with a team that wants to catch them just as bad as you do. Anglers of all skill levels can join, even for the longest and hardest of trips.

All gear and the boat is maintained to the highest standards. All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures. You won’t have to worry about getting a license either, just bring your own food and drinks, and step onboard!

This is a fishing experience like no other. Join Mama Tried Sportfishing!
