About Us

Join HooDoo Sportfishing Charters aboard the Saltwater Challenge and explore fish-fertile waters out of Jacksonville Florida!

Capt Tim Altman has won or placed in a myriad of tournaments from Ocean City, Maryland to St Augustine, Florida. He is a 2 time Jacksonville Sailfish Pot Trophy winner and has been featured in the Florida Sportsman Magazine for his speciality High-Speed Trolling for Wahoo. He teaches High Speed Wahoo Trolling at seminars for the Florida Sportsman Expos all across the state of Florida.

The Saltwater Challenge is a custom built 36ft Contender center console boat. It’s powered by triple 300hp engines to provide a fast and comfortable ride to the offshore fishing grounds. The boat has everything you need to find the very best fishing spots on your trip. We can accommodate up to 6 anglers.

With outriggers, downriggers, kites and a state of the art 96 inch trolling motor to precisely anchor, the Saltwater Challenge gives you the opportunity to know what it feels like to fish professionally for the day. After a fun productive day, the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home for a taste.

These are fish-fertile waters, so prepare to come across a variety of species. Before booking your trip, decide whether you want to troll offshore for species such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Tuna, and Marlin, or to fish the reefs and wrecks for delicious Grouper, Amberjack, and Cobia.

Whichever option you decide to go for, the experienced crew will be with you every step of the way to help you land the trophy fish. Captain Tim's expert knowledge of the local waters will make sure you’re in the best position to find the fish of your dreams.

Don’t hesitate to turn this into an amazing family experience, so bring your kids and teach them all there is to know about fishing. Bring some drinks and snacks, pack some sun protection as well and you’re ready for some fun!
