Crystal River FL, United States

High Octane Fishing provides inshore, scalloping, and nearshore charters throughout the Crystal River area of Florida, with meeting locations offered in Crystal River, Yankeetown, Barge Canal, Cedar Key and Waccasassa. Your guide, Captain Nick Warrington, is USCG licensed and insured, and has years of experience on these waters.

He runs a custom 23’ KenCraft 238 bay boat, which is powered by a quiet 150HP Yamaha outboard motor, and is equipped with Garmin navigational equipment and Standard Horizon VHF radio. The vessel has a wide and open deck, which offers plenty of space and a stable fishing platform for up to six anglers, and provides both a smooth and dry ride while still having the ability to float in 12” of water. If you need to cool off from the hot sun simply unfold the large Bimini top that covers most of the boat, a feature that is especially useful during Scallop season. There is a dive ladder to get in and out of the water with ease, while the boat also comes equipped with an 8’ Power Pole Blade anchor, Minn Kota trolling motor, jack plate, and trim tabs to help it navigate through varying waters. To add to your fishing experience, the boat features a custom built tower that is great for spotting fish, allowing you to cast where the action is.

High Octane Fishing specializes in light tackle fishing with 7’ spinning outfits, bottom fishing, drift fishing, trolling, among others, and offers half and full day scalloping and fishing trips where you can target Scallops, Redfish, Sheepshead, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Grouper, Snapper, Spotted Seatrout, Black Seabass, Black Drum, Cobia, Tripletail, Flounder, and more. Trips include fuel, fishing licenses, masks, fins, snorkels, scallop collection bags, quality rods & reels, artificial baits (live when necessary), ice & cooler, bottled water, and coast guard approved safety gear. Please let Capt. Nick know if you wish to bring your own fishing gear, so that he can make room on the boat.

We have been fishing with guides out of Crystal River and Cedar Key a couple of times each year for the past 13 years. Captain Nick took the four of us on One of the best fishing trips ever on 3/24/18. We caught our limit in sheephead and caught speckled trout, krunts and grouper. The next fishing trip we book will be with Captain Nick!

Great May Fishing

May 14, 2018

Been so busy I've slacked on the reports. Our water temps are in the low 80's which has pushed our inshore species deeper. Been catching trout as deep as 17'. 6-10' seems to be the magic range with larger… Read Full Report →


Inshore Bite!

April 23, 2018

Our inshore bite has been very good lately! Many good sized trout have been landed throwing soft plastics in 4-8' of water over grass. High winds have forced us to target redfish a bit more than usual as week… Read Full Report →
