Salty Hook Adventures

Explore a Florida fisherman’s paradise aboard Salty Hook Adventures! With Captain Doug Brunot at the helm, you’ll explore the spring-fed waters of the Homosassa River or travel out to the Gulf of Mexico to explore one of Central Florida’s best-kept secrets. With a multitude of habitats ranging from flats, hard rock, oyster bars, turtle grass, marshland, and mangroves, there’s something for every angler!

Your ride for the day is a speedy and efficient 21’ Polar center console. She’s perfect for 4 anglers who all want to fish at the same time without bumping elbows. The T-top provides shade from the Florida sun and the latest in GPS and FishFinder keep you on top of your targets. Since you’ll be going after a variety of inshore fish, the wireless trolling motor is must-have.

Snook, Redfish, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, and Seatrout are just some of the fun to catch and delicious inshore species you’ll be going after. You’ll troll, jig, and pop using live bait and gear provided by Capt. Doug. You’ll also be happy to know that Homosassa is one of the best places around for inshore scalloping, so stock up on some of the tasty shellfish!

Capt. Doug provides a cooler for any snacks and drinks you choose to bring on board. He’s also happy to clean and fillet your catch at the dock after your trip. All you’ll want to remember to do is pick up a fishing license online or from a licensed vendor beforehand.

Get out and explore waters stocked with fish as opposed to fishermen aboard Salty Hook Adventures!
