Explore the Gulf of Mexico and Holmes Beach, one of its most precious jewels, with the help of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. No one knows these waters like Captain Taylor Rahn, whose family has been fishing in the area for six generations. He will bring all that experience and show you both the inshore and offshore wonders the Gulf has to offer.

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ center console manufactured by Century. If you want to bring your family or fishing buddies along, don’t hesitate – the vessel can easily accommodate 6 guests. It’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and will take you cruising with a maximum speed of 60 knots.

The boat comes with top-notch navigational and safety equipment, a trolling motor, a power pole, an ice-box to keep your catch fresh, a live bait tank, and snorkeling equipment in case you want to get closer to your catch. The vessel also features a T-top to provide protection from the Florida sun.

Captain Taylor and Captain Henry will take you fishing anywhere from inshore to offshore waters and show you their secret fishing spots near reefs and wrecks. You’ll be targeting a variety of species including Snook, Redfish, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, and more. Captain Henry, a 5th generation inshore specialist and an expert on live bait fishing will be there to share his know-how and ensure a productive day.

Kids are more than welcome on board, and there is no age limit. From the youngest ones to seasoned fishermen, Ultimate Fishing Adventures welcomes all anglers for the ultimate day on the water. Captain will make sure to clean and filet everything you catch and provide you with all the fishing gear, live bait, and lures you need. He will also include fly fishing equipment and drinks free of charge.
