The Crystal River and Homosassa areas of Citrus County otherwise know as the “Nature Coast” of Florida is a true fisherman’s paradise. Three major fresh water spring fed rivers scattered throughout our area discharge right into the Gulf of Mexico creating an estuary that is second to none in the state of Florida. Gin Clear water and large areas of unspoiled islands, hidden back country coves and miles of untouched creeks are just some of the habitats that anglers from all over the world flock to in search of “World Class” Redfish, Speckled Trout, Grouper, Tarpon, Tripletail, Flounder, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Permit and Pompano to name a few. Stalking Redfish in shallow water, Speckled Trout along many of the Grass Flats, and sight casting to Giant Tarpon, Black Drum and Cobia are just a few of our specialties and opportunities to catch all these species can occur on any giving day.

Deep sea fishing
Offshore boat fishing, sometimes called deep sea or open water fishing, is fishing in deep water (more than 30 metres) and at some distance from land. It is dangerous compared to shallow water or lake fishing. More knowledge is needed about weather patterns, navigation and safety precautions, and this is not an activity for beginners.
Offshore boats are generally much larger than inshore boats, and may need to be moored in a marina. They are sturdily constructed so they can brave the weather and water conditions encountered in open waters.
