Bad Habit Charters

Cast Your Lines!  Bad Habit Inshore & Nearshore Fishing Charters is ready to take you on a terrific fishing trip on the fantastic waterways of the Treasure Coast!

    I’m Captain Marshall Busha, a professional and fully licensed and insured charter boat captain specializing in inshore fishing of the Indian and St. Lucie Rivers, and nearshore fishing outside the St. Lucie Inlet.  I can hook you up with our area’s resident fish population such as Snook, Tarpon, Goliath Grouper, Cobia, Sailfish, Pompano, Sea Trout, Redfish, Snapper, Sheepshead, Flounder, Tripletail, Shark, and King and Spanish Mackerel.  Our area is so amazingly diverse that you can fish for numerous species of fish from the mangroves to the flats, oyster beds, grass beds, wrecks, reefs, docks, and bridge pilings in a single trip. 

    Trips can be catered to your talents from the first timer to the professional angler, to a combination of talents on the same trip.
I love this sport and am happy to share my passion, expertise and skills.  A trip with me on the Bad Habit will be a memorable one.  Let me and Bad Habit Charters provide you with the trip of a lifetime.

See you soon!
