If you’re looking for local knowledge and a safe fishing experience around Crystal River, then look no further than Crystal River Guide Services. Captain Arnold Martin has been fishing in these waters for his whole life and knows them like the back of his hand.
You’ll be taking on these waters aboard a brand new 24’ Carolina skiff that can have up to 6 anglers fishing comfortably at the same time. Its engine is a 150 HP Yamaha Showmax, which can exceed 44 knots. The vessel holds a livewell for bait and has advanced navigational equipment on board.
The fishing is great and varied at the Crystal River. Some of the popular catches here include Cobia, Flounder, Grouper, and Redfish. Scalloping is also an option on this charter - goggles and bags will be provided if you opt for this fun experience.
Ice, water, and a cooler are all provided for your convenience. Shimano reels and Star rods are Captain Arnold’s weapons of choice on his fishing trips. He’ll also clean your catch and provide the necessary fishing licenses.
Take along some food, sunscreen, and some beers if you want to crack open a cold one in the hot sun. After that, expect to have a relaxed day reeling in a fine range of fish in the Florida’s Nature Coast.
