A field trip to the Homosassa community and their Homosassa Spring Wildlife State Park is a wonderful experience. What’s more, you can do some interesting fishing in the area. So contact Angler Issues Fishing Charters and they’ll show you around. Their Captain Brian Conner has loads of experience and he loves sharing it with other anglers.

You’ll be exploring the area on board the Carolina Skiff model from 2015. It is 21’ and it can accommodate groups of 4 guests per trip. It is equipped with a single Yamaha engine that can go up to 35 kn. You’ll be going from one fishery to another in no time. There’s also fishfinding equipment available to maximize your catch.

The charter specializes in inshore locations of the area, and nearshore hot spots are also an option. The fish bites all year round, but have in mind that Gag Grouper is available from June till December. As for the rest of the fish, depending on the season you can encounter Sheepshead, Tripletail, Redfish, and Flounder, just to name some. You can go after them using a variety of techniques like light tackle, spinning, and drift fishing.

Families with children are welcome. The crew will provide you with the fishing equipment, lures, and baits. Also, the charter covers your Florida fishing license. You can bring your refreshments and snacks. Snorkeling equipment is available during the break, or if you’re interested in scalloping. It’s up to you whether you’ll keep the fish, or practice catch and release. If you do keep it, the crew will help you with cleaning.

Have a memorable fishing trip in the unique area of Homosassa! Don’t miss out and contact Angler Issues Fishing Charters.

It's in my blood, I was raised on the water and I have been a avid fisherman my entire life. I enjoy the calm of an early morning ride out to the fishing grounds, and my excitement explodes into full on fishing Captain when the fish start biting. To have the opportunity to share my experience and fishing knowledge can make a normal day turn into the most exciting fishing experience of a lifetime.
