U-hook-um Charters - Inshore

Give U-hook-um Fishing Charters a try if you are looking for a relaxing and productive adventure in Crystal River. Join Captain Don Adams for a fun day out on the water and let him put his two decades of experience to work for you.

Beginner to pro, everyone is welcome to join in the adventure. Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hands before, you don’t have to worry. Bring your fishing buddy, your child, or a colleague and explore the inshore waters from the comfort of your own boat. Get your hands on Redfish, Trout, Snook, and Cobia.

The vessel you’ll be fishing on is a 20’ Tide Water center console, out of the box in 2012. It is a spacious boat that has plenty of room for up to 2 anglers. It comes powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine and outfitted with modern electronics.

The boat is rigged with a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, as well as quality gear, tackle, and snorkeling equipment for the scalloping trips.

Speaking of which – if you don’t feel like fishing, try scalloping! You will feel like a real underwater hunter. It’s fun for the whole family!

All rods, reels, tackle, lures, bottled water, ice, and licenses are provided. Please note that no GPS device are allowed onboard, and the mobile phones will be turned off during the trip.
