Grand Slam Miami Charters– 30' Boat

Captain Josh Holmes is the owner and operator of Grand Slam Miami Charters. He runs trips out of Miami as well as down in the Keys, targeting the awesome range of big game predators and deep-water reef species that call the area home. He has a great range of trips to choose from, each promising big fish and a hard fight to get them onboard.

Head offshore in search of pelagic species like Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna, or drop your lines over reefs and wrecks in search of Grouper, Snapper, Hogfish, and more. Up for the ultimate challenge? Head out on a specialist Swordfishing charter, dropping lines hundreds of feet into the depths of the ocean to hook these delicious, hard-fighting fish.

However you want to spend your day, you won’t find a better place to spend it than aboard Captain Josh’s 30’ Contender center console. This hardy vessel has everything you could ask for, from outriggers and downriggers for the best spread to spearfishing equipment to let you get up close and personal with your favorite species.

The seas around Miami are some of the most productive in the state, with deep waters just a stone’s throw from the shore and a huge mix of species crowding into every habitat around. Captain Josh has been fishing these waters for over 20 years and knows how to get the most out of every spot and species. He provides bait, lures, and quality tackle on every trip, and will clean and fillet all your catch at the end of the day.

So many fish, so little time! Whatever you go for, you’re in for an awesome time, with an experienced guide and a clean, modern boat. It’s shaping up to be a seriously good fishing trip
