Inshore Fishing Charter
Inshore fishing is a year round activity. Whether charter boat has you fishing inside one of the many rivers surrounding Homosassa or just outside the rivers at the edge of the Gulf of Mexico we have a dozen or more species of fish to target. Fun for all ages, our fishing charters use a variety of methods to target fish such as live bait, cut bait, artificial lures and fly fishing. For many species of fish we fish the tides and some times of the day our fishing holes are inaccessible so we move to a species that is not dependant on the tides to keep you crankin’ in the fish. Depending on the conditions, we’ll fish for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Mangrove Snapper, Bass, Tarpon, Ladyfish, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, Trout, Spanish Mackeral and Sheepshead. Our inshore boats are rigged for shallow water, being either flat bottom skiffs, shallow drafting bay boats or an Airboat.
We fish from 30 miles to 120 miles offshore for the big fish. This is an all day and sometimes overnight fishing trip. We’ll usually bottom fish or troll and sometimes we can chum up some exciting fish to sight cast to on top of the water. With offshore fishing, you never know what you’ll get: huge grouper, tasty snapper, fighting kingfish, sharks, amberjack that’ll rip your shoulders off, triggerfish, grunts, lizardfish, spanish mackeral, sea bass, and on rare occasions sailfish and dolphin! We might be fishing in 30 feet or 130 feet of water using live pinfish, frozen sardines, shrimp, jigs or large blue runners. Our offshore boats are made for long runs in big seas and are equipped with the latest safety gear including life rafts and EPIRBs.
