The sunny waters off of Holmes Beach, FL are home to some of the best nearshore gamesfish species, and you'll be able to take a shot at all of them on this trip with Captain Taylor! Drop your lines down towards underwater structure and reefs for Black and Gag Grouper, Mutton Snapper, and Hogfish, then get ready to battle these tough fish to the surface. Not only do these fish make great trophies, but they're also excellent table fare!...Read More
To get at these bottom-dwelling species, you'll be dropping your bait and lures deep and jigging to get their attention. Captain Taylor knows how to put you on the fish, but once you're hooked up, it's your strength, stamina, and skill versus some of the brawniest fish that the Gulf has to offer. You'll also have chances to troll for Kingfish and cast out for Cobia, depending on the season and conditions. You'll be fishing from the deck of Taylor's 24' Century center console—an ideal vessel for these waters.
Captain Taylor will come prepared with everything you need for a successful and comfortable charter. He'll supply the rods, reels, bait, tackle—and most importantly, his expertise! To maximize your experience, bring proper clothing, a hat, polarized sunglasses, a camera and sunscreen.
Captain Taylor is a local who grew up on Anna Maria Island. He has six generations of fishing knowledge behind him, and loves showing clients everything he knows about his local waters....Read More
The options are endless here, and Captain Taylor will work to get you the fish you want. In his words, "This isn't just another sun baking charter that you're going to catch some fish and a Florida sunburn. This is the ultimate professional experience that you will never forget."
