Hooked on Florida Fishing

Three words say it all: World Class Fishing. Whether you long for the deep sea off shore or salt water flats in shore, Crystal River and Homosassa are revered for some of Florida’s best saltwater sport fishing. Inland, the thirty-mile long Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes provides one of Florida’s top freshwater fishing spots. It’s the best of both worlds.

Our guides trace their lineage back for generations to the founding of the Homosassa Guides Association and the Atlanta Fishing Club in the 19th Century. All you need to bring is your passion for fishing. We’ll take care of the rest.

BOATING SAFETY

Safe navigation on our waterways is everyone’s responsibility. All operators are equally responsible for taking action necessary for safe boating. This includes understanding navigation rules, speed laws, manatee laws, and providing adequate safety equipment and obtaining all proper licenses for vessel operation.

For fishing, a saltwater and/or freshwater fishing license is required for all boaters between the ages of 16 and 65. There may be exceptions to this, so before beginning your excursion, familiarize yourself with the laws found on the FWC website.
