Lovely Martha Sport Fishing offers boat charters for all the gamefish San Francisco has to offer from berth #3 at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco...

Just as Captain Frank Rescino's father and previous generations have for over 100 years!

And now 4th generation Captain Mike Rescino is at the helm.

We'll take individuals, couples, families and groups large and small out for party boating, sport fishing, memorial charters and our specialty, sightseeing trips from Fisherman's Wharf... we're out on Bay Tours all the time; call for availability of open one hour trips or private sightseeing charters.

The Lovely Martha is the third "Martha" to take fisherman and sightseers out through the Golden Gate from San Francisco. Her history spans many decades as an icon in the world-famous fishing fleet at home in Fisherman's Wharf.

Four generations of the Rescino family have escorted still more generations of fishermen in search of game fish, having boated hundreds of thousands of salmon and other species.

Some of our loyal customers fished on the Martha as children, and now they are treating their grandchildren to special fishing trips on the Lovely Martha as the tradition continues.

And still more tradition: The family succession moves closer as the next Captain Rescino is groomed for the position that he was born for.
Lovely Martha Sportfishing is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • I absolutely cannot recommend this business enough! Mike and crew were amazing. I didn’t know that a 5 AM wake up call to fish could be so enjoyable. My boyfriend and I were one of the last on the boat. We signed in, we’re assigned a number that our fish were tagged with, and picked our rods. Mike is so animated and you can tell he and his crew enjoy what they do. His kid is even a deck hand. You can tell this is a family business and everyone’s got a role. I really liked this over the more “corporate” experiences I’ve had on other charters. Once we got set up, we headed out. It was a slower day, but my action picked up in the afternoon. Boy was I amazed when I hauled in my salmon! They don’t guarantee fish, but I’m glad I got one. Just watching the joy on peoples faces when they reeled in the hogs we were getting was more than enough for me if I didn’t get any fish. You can tell this business cares for their patrons significantly and it shows. If you’re still searching for a charter in San Francisco, run, don’t walk to Lovely Martha’s website to book a charter!!!
  • Just finished a full day Halibut trip. Captain Mike, Andrew, and Willy really make for an excellent fishing experience! We hit limits for the boat after about 3 hours. Highly recommended if you're looking for a fun and efficient fishing trip. I can only imagine their Bay cruises are just as fun! Highly recommended, can't wait to book another trip!
