Looking to catch some big offshore species without spending the entire day out on the water? Then get out there with Captain Taylor, a true local expert, who will get you on the fish, whether you're going for a trophy, hoping to fill your cooler, or both. On this trip, you'll target close offshore species like Amberjack, Black Grouper, Gag Grouper, and Snappers on the reefs, plus Barracuda, False Albacore, Cobia, and Spanish Mackerel closer to the surface....Read More
You'll go after these fish using a variety of techniques including trolling, bottom fishing, drifting, and jigging. Some of these species, especially the Snappers and Groupers, can get seriously big, so bring your A-game! When a lunker hits your line, you're gonna feel it.
You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Taylor's 24' Century center console—a perfect boat for tackling the nearshore waters around Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island! She sports a 250 HP Yamaha outboard, so you'll be on the hot fishing spots in a hurry. She's also kitted out with all the standard electronics for a safe and productive trip.
Captain Taylor will bring everything you need for a great trip! All you need to remember is proper clothing, sun protection, a hat, a pair of polarized glasses, and you'll be good to go!
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."
