Guest Profile

Taylor Martin is a boatswain’s mate in the U.S. Navy. Growing up fishing in Florida, it’s no wonder that he loves to be on the water. Taylor was no stranger to redfish, trout, and bonefish from his early Florida days. However, it was on his first assignment in Hawaii where he really got to tangle with some serious bones. Then, when stationed San Antonio, he was treated to some spectacular big seatrout fishing on the Texas coast. But for his most epic story, we return to the seaside docks of Florida. And more particularly, the snook that prowl beneath them at night. This nightime snook dock fishing recon trip turned out to be better than he or his friends could have imagined.

Fishing experience

Taylor had a lot of saltwater fishing experience growing up in Florida. He caught redfish, trout, bonefish, and tarpon before heading out to sea with the Navy. But fortunately, his deployments were in some pretty fishy places as well, namely Hawaii and Texas. Now he is stationed back in Florida, and the fresh and saltwater fishing continue with a vengeance. Not to mention a little nightime snook dock fishing on occasion.

Taylor Martin with some epic catches from salt and fresh water, including a big dock snook from this episode.


This episode takes place in the Madeira Beach/Treasure Island area of Florida.
