When you go to Florida for a vacation, you have to check out the small fishing town of Homosassa, which has a charm and a fleet of Homosassa fishing charters. Homosassa is where people looking for something unique come to for fun activities like scalloping for bay scallops, nature tours, and, of course, world-class fishing. Guides for the many charter companies here in Homosassa are professional locals that have been fishing, scalloping and venturing up and down the many rivers flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. There is excellent inshore fishing, nearshore fishing and offshore fishing year-round.
Some of the best Redfish fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is found here and anglers from all over come to try their hand at hooking up with this aggressive fish that will have your line screaming and your heart pounding. Along with Redfish fishing the calm waters of the flats, springs and river systems where giant Tarpon and Trout can be found. These trips are a perfect way for a family to spend the day, and the most experienced fisherman would have a blast catching the Redfish and Tarpon.
Nearshore, the excellent fishing continues for you on your Homosassa fishing charter targeting many of the fish available year-round. There are wrecks and reefs housing all kinds of structures that the professional guides know to put you on the fish.
For those looking for a real adventure, you can head offshore looking for giants. Here you might have the chance to watch Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish and Mahi Mahi jumping and dancing on the water. There is nothing like the thrill and exhilaration you feel reeling in one of these sea beasts. Of course, you are in for a fight, but the rewards are well worth it!
I would be remiss if I did not talk about Bay Scalloping and the Nature Tours. Bay Scalloping The Nature Tours are where you can see and even swim with the gentle sea cow or Manatee. You will also encounter dolphins and see alligators and other water and land animals.
Homosassa Springs has something for everyone and is a true fisherman’s paradise. With some of the best coastal flats fishing in the state, you will have a blast casting your line in for Redfish and Tarpon, or nearshore for Cobia, Amberjack and Snapper and offshore for the biggest fish in the Gulf.
The best time for you and your family to visit Homosassa and charter a fishing boat is the summer when it is Red Snapper Season, Bay Scallop Season, and Cobia, Mackerel and the giant Tarpon are all still in season too. But, of course, the best time for Manatee watching is the wintertime. But, of course, there is fantastic fishing year-round for you and your family or friends, and your fishing vacation will be full of lasting memories and coolers of tasty fish for a delicious dinner.
