Private Charters Sport Fishing

If you’re looking for a day of fun fishing and stunning views with a skilled crew and a well-maintained boat, Private Charters Sport Fishing is the name to remember. Headed by Captain Larry Martin, who has been running fishing charters for over 15 years, they specialize in building exciting trips to suit you.

The waters around Panama City Beach need no introduction as a sportfishing location. This stunning stretch of Florida’s Gulf Coast is home to a who’s who of table and gamefish. From tasty Snappers and Groupers to hard-fighting Wahoo and Tuna, there’s no end to what the area can offer.

Capt. Larry has the perfect vessel to make the most of these waters. The “MAGGI” is a custom-built sportfishing yacht, made by William T. Guinn with luxury and fishability in mind. She has an enclosed flybridge to take in the view from up on high and a head for extra comfort on longer trips.

Once you reach the fishing grounds, the MAGGI really comes into her own. Her outriggers will give you that perfect trolling spread while her skilled first mate makes sure all the equipment is set up properly. She has a livewell bursting with bait to draw in the fish and a selection of lures if that’s more your style. She has it all.

The Private Charters Sport Fishing team loves to work with beginners, kids, and seasoned anglers – anyone is welcome onboard. The boat is rigged and ready to go with everything you need for the fishing itself. Just bring your food and drinks and get ready for a great day out!
