Whether you’re staying at one of our local waterfront hotels or making the short drive from Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville, or the Villages, all our fishing adventures begin with a waterfront pickup along one of the Nature Coast’s pristine waterways. Once on board one of our customized flats skiffs or bay boats, you will be amazed by the beauty of one of the few remaining “Old Florida” fishing towns. Hundred-year-old oak trees covered in Spanish moss line the shores of our spring-fed rivers, many of which are home to osprey, ibis, wood storks, and bald eagles. When you're not gazing into the treetops, a simple scan of the water may reveal dolphins, otters, alligators, or our local favorite, the West Indian manatee. With so much wildlife to see along the drive out to the Gulf, you may enjoy the wildlife tour as much as the fishing. During our day spent out on the water, you can expect to target a variety of inshore species including redfish, speckled trout, snook, and tarpon. These species can be found all over our coast and usually within the same day we will target these species along the flats of both Crystal River and Homosassa. Although they’re only separated by seven miles, these two locations are vastly different fisheries, offering anglers a variety of different challenges and opportunities. Included in all our trips are Florida state fishing licenses, use of Orvis fly rods, reels, flies, terminal tackle, fly-casting instruction, and conventional spinning equipment (if requested). Bottled water and deli-prepared lunches are included on all full-day fishing trips. Crystal River and Homosassa have a variety of outdoor pursuits to consider if you wish to combine your fishing trip with other activities. The Nature Coast has the distinctive honor of being deemed the Manatee Capital of the World as visitors from all over flock to our warm waters to swim with them. If you're looking to stay dry during your outdoor fun, the area has many public and private golf courses, several rivers for those who wish to kayak or tube, and lots of great restaurants offering a variety of cuisine.
