Florida Fishing Adventures

Florida Fishing Adventures offers inshore charters and guide services from fly fishing to scalloping and guarantees a safe, fun, and productive trip for everyone! Captain Louie Argiro has fished throughout the US and Canada, mastered a range of techniques, and targeted a plethora of species, but he says that nothing comes close to the beautiful “Nature Coast!”

Your boat for the day is a 24’ custom Carolina Skiff flats boat. She comes fully rigged with everything you need for a successful day, including state-of-the-art navigational electronics, a wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, safety gear, and top-of-the-line fishing tackle. She accommodates 6 people per trip, 4 can fish at the same time, and kids of all ages are welcome.

You’ll get to stalk the backcountry creeks looking for Snook and weave through the mangrove forests in search of Redfish and Trout. Capt. Louie will also take you into the coves, inlets, and honey holes to target inshore favorites, such as Pompano, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and many more.

If you’re up for a challenge, you can also go fly fishing to try and hook a Tarpon or Tripletail. Please note, up to 2 people can fly fish at the same time and you’ll need to bring your own fly gear. However, for all other fishing trips, the tackle is provided. Capt. Louie supplies his customers with top-quality Fenwick rods and Penn Battle II reels. Live bait is also included in the price and will be caught before the trip.

Once it’s time to call it a day, Capt. Louie will offer to clean and fillet your catch so you can enjoy a delicious meal with your family. Your fishing license is covered as well, so just come straight to the dock, bring polarized sunglasses, a hat, and sunblock, and feel free to pack snacks and drinks for the ride. Book your next trip with Florida Fishing Adventures and get ready for an incredible day on the water in Crystal River, FL!

Captain Louie Argiro learned how to fish right around the time he started walking. Since growing up, it’s always been a big part of his life and something he’s excelled at, so becoming a professional guide was a natural decision for him. Capt. Louie began his journey in Tampa where he learned everything there is to know about light tackle fishing. Over the years, he’s traveled, lived, and fished throughout the US and Canada, from Alaska to Saskatchewan and the Chesapeake Bay to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He became an expert in various fishing techniques which led him to become a full-time deckhand for a local charter in the Outer Banks. After many years of working as a first mate, he gained invaluable experience that he would eventually use to start his own charter business. Fast-forward to today and Capt. Louie is the proud owner and operator of Florida Fishing Adventures. Book your trip today and get ready for an exciting excursion through the waters of Crystal River, FL!
