Conveniently located in Homosassa it’s only a quick drive from Tampa, Orlando, and Ocala. Your guide, Capt. Rod Johnson is excited to share all the beauty of the area with you as you enjoy an action-packed trip that will leave you with a tasty catch!
Come aboard and enjoy the roomy comfort of a 29’ Adventure Craft Houseboat with amenities that include restroom and seating inside and out. The boat’s equipped with navigation, communication, and fish-finding electronic systems as well as with all the necessary safety features and equipment. The vessel is an ideal choice for groups wanting to cruise in comfort on the way to the scalloping and fishing grounds and enjoy the breathtaking views along the way.
Scalloping season varies year-to-year but generally runs July – Sept. The scalloping beds are typically between 3 to 6 feet deep, making it a great activity for the whole family to enjoy. However, all guests wanting to participate in these trips are required to know how to swim. The limits for scallops are 2 gallons whole per person and 10 gallons whole maximum per boat. For fishing trips, you’ll be provided with Ugly Stik rods and reels and target species like Redfish, Seatrout, Cobia, and Grouper just to name a few.
Your daily fishing license is also included in the price so all you need to remember to bring is a cooler to take your catch home, any food and drinks you’d like and sun protection.
If you’re ready for your trip relaxing in the gorgeous local nature that will leave you with a tasty catch for the way home, book a trip today and come meet Capt. Rod on the water!
