    my 3 boys enjoyed themselves and caught lots of fish


    Created Steve Baldzicki

    I've been fishing with Tim for many years and he for sure knows fishing and boating. Fun...entertaining...professional...and most of all finds the fish. He is very safe and great with people and I'm always having a good time when I go with him. He for sure knows boating and fishing and makes the whole experience fun and memorable.

  • Great Experience!

    Created Natalie Myers

    Fantastic experience! Would highly recommend. My family and I had a blast. Tim was the best guide and my son didn’t want to come home he had so much fun. Will absolutely be booking again!

  • Very Enjoyable

    Created Chris Hemenway

    Captin Tim knows how to take families fishing. His boat is fantastic, super clean, and big enough for our family of five. He knew would we need more bait than normal because we didn't know what we were doing and he was prepared. He knew all the spots to hit in the lakes and how to hit them to insure we were on fish all day. It still fishing so I can't guarantee you will slam them like we did but you can be sure Tim will do everything he can in his control to make the day successful. My boys said their day fishing with Tim was more fun than any of our days at Disney.

  • Great Guide!

    Created Tiffani Weatherford

  • Memorable Experience

    Created Lillian R.

    Captain Tim made our grandson’s 1st fishing experience a memorable one. He’s a patient teacher (with young & not so young) He was committed to helping us all bring in fish. His boat was clean and spacious for our family of 6. Martin Family Charters brings professionalism, value and fun to the experience. We had an awesome morning & the birthday boy was so happy! We will definitely be using MFC for our future fishing trips. Thank you Captain Tim

  • Tons of fish

    Created Kevin Stires

    Went on a charter over the Holidays and had a great time. Captain Tim put us on fish the entire time we were with him. Boat was clean and had a very smooth ride when we were traveling from location to location. Can't wait to get back down to Florida with my pals and go on another adventure. Look forward to seeing you again soon Captain!!

  • Highly Recommend

    Created tim roberts

    We took a charter with Captain Tim recently. As much as I enjoy fishing, I am still rather inexperienced. Tim went out of his way to help me and make it a very enjoyable trip. Never once did I feel embarrassed to ask Tim for help regardless of how simple the task may have seemed. The boat was meticulously maintained and it was a very comfortable ride. Overall it was an amazing experience. We caught several different species of fish and it was a great day to be on the water. I highly recommend Martin Family Charters for your next fishing excursion.
