Captain Jim Fortman – Ten Thousand Islands

Let Captain Jim Fortman guide you through the backwaters of the Ten Thousand Islands, where you will experience the best of Florida fishing complemented by exquisite wildlife and scenery.

Step aboard a brand new 24’ Sea Born 2020. Powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, this craft boasts a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. Simple and sleek, you will maneuver gracefully through the backwaters while aboard this boat. Up to 4 passengers can fish comfortably aboard this boat and even 3 of them can fish on the front platform. Moreover, this area is a real photographers’ delight, so this is a perfect charter to document Florida fishing experience.

Launching from the Port of the Islands Resort and Marina, you will fish the backwaters for some of Florida’s most iconic species. Using a variety of techniques, you can target specimens such as Black Drum, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, Flounder, and Tarpon when the season allows. 

Captain Jim Fortman provides a Florida fishing license and all the gear you need. Children age four and above are welcome. You may keep your catch and store it in the onboard ice box, and Capt. Jim will clean and fillet it for you.

Join Captain Jim Fortman on the backwaters of the Ten Thousand Islands and experience Florida fishing like never before!
