Catching Memories Charters

1119 Baillies Bluff Road
Holiday FL, United States

Welcome to Catching Memories Charters!  Enjoy a great day of fishing from the backcountry to the beaches with Catching Memories Charters. Captain Ryan is a premier guide that will put you on the hottest bite in the bountiful waters of Florida!

Join him on board his 22’ Pathfinder, with 3 of your fishing partners. She has a shallow draft and is perfectly suited to navigating the inshore waters around Holiday. Powered by a 150 HP Mercury, she can cruise at a maximum speed of 35 knots, wasting no time traveling when you could be fishing! She’s fully outfitted with all the USCG regulated safety equipment.

Capt. Ryan will take you after the A-team of inshore fishing: Bull Redfish, Snook, Spotted Seatrout and others. If you’re looking for a proper battle, Cobia offers some of the best pound-for-pound fights that you can find. You can also go for speedy Spanish Mackerel. Fishing with live bait is made easier by the onboard live bait well, keeping your bait fish spry and appetizing long after it’s been caught.

You’ll be provided with all the necessary fishing gear for trips with Catching Memories Charters. Remember to bring a cooler if you want to take your hard-earned catch home, the captain will clean and fillet it for you free of charge.

If you’re looking for a relaxing day out under the sun, melting stress away, or want to flex your muscles and fight some big keepers, book a trip with Captain Ryan and cast off on an unforgettable fishing adventure!

    Same great fishing as the morning trips but if you aren't an early bird you can get a little later start and still be in before the afternoon storms and sweltering heat do their damage! You'll go after Spotted Seatrout, Red Drum, Snook, Cobia, and whatever else takes the bait!

About the Captain

My name is Ryan and I’m a Florida native that’s been fishing since I was 4 years old. Originally from Miami, I started Bass fishing in the canal behind my house. I moved to Tarpon Springs over 25 years ago and have been fishing these waters ever since. I spent my first few years learning the waters and fishing with friends for fun and then began to fish local tournaments. After having success in tournaments I started commercial fishing in the area which led to guiding. My passion is fishing but more importantly, it's to have the opportunity to share that passion and see people truly enjoy the great fishing and gorgeous nature I’m lucky enough to see daily. My job is to make your experience one you’ll never forget and head home at the end with a smile. Let's go fishing!
