"Thank you for your interest in Times Two Charters.   We promise to give you professional service, have the boat clean, and rods, reels and tackle ready to go when you arrive at the dock.

We are not perfect, and we don't expect you to be either.  Occasionally fish will be lost on the way to the boat, and we won't degrade your abilities if that happens.  We still learn every day we are on the lake too!

You will not find a captain or crew that works harder for you! 

Our plan is simple - Get you and your group out on the lake, enjoy the day and have a good time, and do our best to put a bunch of fish in the box!

Come on.....you know you want to.....Let's Go Fishing!" -  Captain John
Captain John is a member of:
