We booked a half day trip with Capt. Taylor Rahn. It was our first fishing trip so we do not have any fishing experience. Capt. Taylor was ver nice and helpful. He explained us how to fish and he found the perfect place with a lot of Red Snapper and Sheepshead. From our meetingpoint to the fishing spot was about a 1/2 hour boatride which was very cool.
We were very successful in getting our dinner. We got 2 big Sheepshead and 3 Red Snapper.
During our trip we saw a lot of Dolphins playing around the boat. Beautiful.
The boat was very clean and in a perfect condition. Just perfect for a fishing trip.
After we arrived back at the boat ramp Capt. Taylor cleaned the fishes - ready to eat. Perfect.
I highly recommend this trip. It was a great experience. And I will surely do it again.
Thank you to Capt. Taylor for a perfect day.

So this is my second charter with Capt. Taylor and we were targeting snook and redfish since we’ve never caught them before. We ended the day with more than what we wanted. We got into plenty of snook and some big bull reds and even some bonus seatrout. Overall, we had a great time and knocked some fish off our bucket lists. Taylor is not uptight like many other captains are. He’s friendly, relaxed and he’ll put you on the fish for sure. 10/10 definitely recommend him!

Wow, I was very concerned with doing this experience but my husband loves fishing and I do a little.  We booked a short trip as I was very cautious and get seasick easily. Captain Taylor was wonderfully accommodating and was so helpful for a novice fisher person.  We caught fish, Taylor cleaned them, great music on the boat, I through a lure into the trees and it was no big thing.  We are going to book future trips with family and friends.  It was a great experience.

My wife and I recently moved to the Sarasota Bradenton area.  After doing research online we opted to take a trip with Taylor. When we arrived at the Boatlanding he was ready to go. My wife requested that a handle on the real be put on the right and he accommodated her immediately.  We fish three different areas caught some great fish and had an incredible experience. We have booked two additional trips since our first experience with Taylor. We would recommend this charter has a great value and a fun experience.

3 novice fishermen from Pennsylvania enjoyed a half-day near Anna Marie Island with Captain Taylor. Within minutes of making the reservation, Capt. Taylor contacted us to make advance arrangements to meet at a convenient spot.  The boat and equipment were first rate. Capt. Taylor was attentive to our needs and patient with our skills.  He had a great playlist and a host of interesting stories - some even had to do with fishing. Ha. We had lots of fishing activity and had about a dozen “keepers”.  Looking forward to our next fishing adventure with Capt. Taylor.

Great day fishing would have liked to get some big ones but the kids had a blast. Excellent fishing trip to take with the kids because the capt is great working with them and showing them the correct way to cast and where to fish. We caught a bunch of sea bass which the kids enjoyed catching.

We had a great time with Taylor. He was laid back but wanted to get after it and catch some fish. He explained throwing the cast net and the process of catching the bait, and then took us to 5 in-shore spots. Awesome experience and hoping to go back in the future.

Captian Taylor provided a wonderful afernoon of fishing for our family. It started out a rainy morning and not sure we were going to get to go. Captian Taylor stayed in touch every hour until he saw it was safe to go out on the boat. It ended up a beautiful afternoon and he was more than accommodating to make sure we had a great time. He knew the good spots to hit, kept lines with bait and had a great personality. We would definitely book again.

Captain Taylor was fantastic and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!  My son is 11 and LOVES to fish.  Capt. Taylor was patient, helpful and encouraging to him, which I greatly appreciated.

Capt. Taylor took us to the fish and our time was spent catching rather than driving around looking for fish to catch. Capt. Taylor is enthusiastic, loves what he does and wants to see his clients have fun and reel in the big ones.  We’ll definitely use his services again bent time we are in the area!  Thanks for a great day on the water!

Probably the best fishing trip I have ever had. Actually I got tired of catching so many fish. Had to put the pole down just to get a drink. Non-stop action. Would recommend Captain Taylor to anyone looking for an outstanding fishing experience. Been fishing sine I was 4 years old so I am not a beginner. What a fantastic time!
