Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions

(15) Just booked!
1029 Baillies Bluff Road
Holiday FL, United States

Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions invites you for a fun and relaxing trip on the waters of Holiday, Florida. This charger is for those who want to have fun and relax, and for families with kids. Captain Carlos, who owns and runs the charter, loves taking kids out and teaching them how to fish properly by explaining the fish, the techniques, and how to reel your catch in.

Captain Carlos operates a 32-foot Sportcraft offshore sport fishing boat, originally built in 1985, and restored in 2015. This beauty is powered by two 230HP Mercruiser engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots. The speed makes it ideal for nearshore and offshore adventures so you can relax and enjoy the ride, too, as it will be a comfortable one.

The boat has an XM radio if you want a soundtrack to your trip, and is fully equipped with all the fishing gear needed to make the trip a success. It also features safety equipment such as life jackets, and electronics that will help you locate the most productive fishing spots.

Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions will take you up to 9 miles offshore in search of the big Groupers, Snappers, Cobia, King Mackerel and more. Florida is incredibly rich in bottom-feeding fish, so, if you stay a little closer to the shore, you will also target Mangrove Snapper, Black Seabass, Sheepshead, and more.

Captain Carlos will provide individual service for everyone on the boat. All of his customers are treated like fishermen and fisherwomen. Families and children are welcomed and encouraged to come and spend a day or just a few hours with him. You will experience catching a multitude of species on a day that you’ll remember forever!

OMG!!!! I can not believe how much fun my husband and I had. Carlos and Pedro were by far the most amazing part. They were patient with me and motivating. Answered all my questions and went above and beyond in every way. They took us to some great fishing spots and we filled the coolers with Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, and Snapper. We will be lifetime customers!!! I can’t thank them enough for the amazing Birthday they gave my husband and the amazing time we had! All five stars and I would give them more if I could!

We also caught another type fish not shown on the list. The whole experience for 4 adults and a child under 10 years of age, was great. I highly recommend Captain Mike and this fishing excursion.
