Fishing Charters in Citrus County, FL
Few things are more exciting than a day on the water spent fishing, especially if you end up making a big catch. For many years, I have had the good fortune of helping fishermen of all experience levels catch the trophy of a lifetime in the Citrus County area, also referred to as the Nature Coast. Here in Citrus County, we have seven different rivers, including the Withlacoochee, Crystal, Salt, Halls, Homosassa, St. Martin’s and Chassahowitzka River.
The pristine waters are home to a variety species that can be caught on a spinning rod or a fly rod, including redfish, trout, sheepshead, black drum, mangrove, snapper, cobia and tarpon. In fact, the Homosassa tarpon have a reputation around the world, as many fly fishing records have been set in our area.
Citrus County is a very unique fishery, as we have very shallow rock piles where grouper can be caught in piles as shallow as 8’. The anglers I take out regularly return with 20-pound groupers. On these same rock piles, you will find Spanish mackerel, snapper, flounder and black sea bass.
I have many years of experience as a professional fishing charter captain, but it’s important to note that I grew up in the area and have been fishing on these waters my entire life. I am a proud member of the Evinrude Pro Staff Program for professional anglers, and I am a member of the Homosassa Guides Association, meaning I have the ability to book corporate events or big parties, so if you need 10 to 15 boats to take out, I can accommodate your group.
In order to maximize the value of my client’s trip, I customize all of my charters to suit the needs of that individual angler. I welcome and look forward to the opportunity to take anglers of all experience levels out on the water, and I am happy to tailor my services to fit your needs. Thanks to my experience as a certified Tae Kwon Do instructor, I am great at teaching and working with kids, and look forward to helping them make a big catch. So whether you want to spend a day fishing with your son and/or daughter, or are looking for an exciting forum for a birthday party for them and their friends, a fishing charter could be ideal for you. Everything that you’ll need to fish will be provided, and my 22’ Panga can comfortably fish up to 4 people.
In addition to the fishing expeditions, I also offer Scallop trips from June 27th to September 24thth. Scallops are not only delicious, but they’re also extremely fun to catch, making it a wonderful time that the whole family can enjoy. We can supply all that you need for the excursion, including a mask, snorkel, swim fins, a mesh bag and diver down flag.
