Jimmy G. Charters

16050 Northeast 71st Street
Crystal River FL, United States

Jimmy G. Charters offers scalloping and charter fishing in Crystal River, Yankee Town, and Cedar Key, Florida. This family-friendly charter service specializes in providing fun-filled adventures on the water for anglers of all ages and ability levels.

Trips take place aboard a 22 ft Sea Pro center console boat that is powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine to get you to the best fishing and scalloping spots fast. The boat comes fully equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio, and can comfortably take up to six people on scalloping trips and four for fishing.

If you would like to go fishing with Jimmy G. Charters, the best time of year is from late February to June, or from September to December. You may fish with live bait or artificials, depending on your preference and the bite on the day. When conditions allow, Captain Jimmy may even take you offshore to target Grouper and Snapper on the reefs and wrecks.

Scalloping is usually the method of choice during the summer. The hot, sunny days and open scallop season mean snorkeling through the cooling waters hunting for the hidden treasure of scallops is more attractive than anything else. If you can’t choose whether you would rather hunt for scallops or fish for Trout and Redfish, Jimmy G. Charters offer a convenient combined fishing and scalloping trip that allows you to get the best of both worlds.

All equipment, tackle, and bait is provided, including licenses and snorkeling gear.

Knowledgeable. Friendly. Experienced. We did not catch the fish we were hoping but that was 100% due to the time of the year.

Nonetheless we caught plenty of fish and had a great day on the water!
