Affordable Florida Fishing

15 Hickory Ave.
Yankee Town FL, United States

Come fish the beautiful waters of the nature coast, located on the central west coast of Florida. Just a short drive from Tampa, Ocala, Orlando, and Gainsville, our charters are easily accessible from many major cities.

The nature coast is a well kept gem that is like no other place in Florida. It is known for its monster Redfish, Seatrout, Tarpon, Snook, Cobia, and many more species of game fish.

This area of Florida gets much less fishing pressure than other parts of the state, meaning the fish are abundant.

I offer fishing charters, speciality Tarpon trips and scallop trips.

Thanks for the kind words. One thing I can assure any of guests, I will always try to put people on the fish and will have a good time doing it.
