Hustons Outdoor Adventures

9301 W Fort Island Trail
Crystal River FL, United States

No matter your skill level, all are welcome to fish with Hustons Outdoor Adventures. Captain Dave Huston has a great philosophy – it’s all about making memories one relationship at a time. With decades of experience, he will make sure you have an awesome trip.

You will spend the day on board his recently restored Carolina Skiff flats boat. She has a 150 HP Mercury 4 Stroke engine. Coupled with her great navigational equipment and Capt. Dave’s knowledge of the area, you will have your lines in the water in no time.

This beauty also has a wireless trolling motor, to give you that extra edge for stalking the fish. You will be on top of them without them even realizing. She also has a live bait tank – Capt. Dave will catch the live bait before the trip, so you can spend the maximum amount of time fishing.

You will target a range of species, both inshore and nearshore, including Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Snook, Sheepshead, Tripletail, Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, and Mangrove Snapper. During the season you can even try your hand at scalloping, a great pastime for the whole family. Children are more than welcome on board. There is no minimum age required, and life vests are provided for. On the scalloping trip there is a small charge of $6 per gallon for the cleaning of the scallops once you’ve returned to the dock.

All rods, reels, bait, and lures are provided for and included in the price. You fishing license for the day is all sorted too. You will only need to bring some snacks and plenty of water. Polarized sunglasses and appropriate clothing is also advised. Capt. Dave will fillet your catch, so you just need to decide how you will cook once home!

Hustons Outdoor Adventures cannot wait to welcome you on board and start a great fishing adventure with you.

Captain Dave was knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our novice questions with a smile.  He pointed out stingrays, numerous manatees, and even a large tritail fish by a crab bouy.  We all enjoyed ourselves immensely and will book with him again.
