A-lure Fishing Charters LLC welcomes you to Florida and invites you on a fishing trip full of fun and angling action. You’ll join Captain John Beach in exploring the rivers, inshore, nearshore, and backcountry waters of Crystal River as well as its wrecks and flats, all brimming with various fish species. Captain John knows all the right spots for making a good catch and will see that you enjoy your stay on board, so join him and have a lovely fishing experience in Crystal River!

You’ll be fishing from a restored 23’ Ranger center console that can sit up to 6 guests. It runs on a **hidden content** HP Suzuki DF300 engine and has got all the modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology that will help you have a safe and quick reach to the fish. The boat features a wireless trolling motor and a multimedia system, and is also equipped with snorkeling gear and a livewell. If you want to, a first mate can also join aboard.

On your trip, you’ll be chasing Gag Grouper, Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Triggerfish, Flounder, Tarpon, Snook, and more. The techniques you’ll use to reel them in include light and heavy tackle bottom fishing, trolling, and spinning. You can keep all the available fish you catch and you’re free to bring kids on your trip.

All the tackle, bait, licenses, and drinks will be waiting for you on the boat and the captain will also clean and fillet your catch, totally free of charge. Just bring some food to keep you going throughout the day.

Book at A-lure Fishing Charters Llc and enjoy a lovely day of fishing in Florida!
