High Octane Fishing LLC provides fishing and scalloping charters out of beautiful Crystal River, Florida. USCG licensed and insured captain.

Nick Warrington has years of experience in these waters. Novice and experienced anglers alike are welcome! As Capt. Nick is very laid back and has the patience to attend to unhooking, untangling, hook baiting, and fish cleaning while on the charter.

Trips with High Octane Fishing consist of fishing mangrove islands, rock piles, wrecks, oyster bars and open grass flats. Targeted species include Redfish, Sheepshead, King and Spanish Mackerel, Grouper, Snapper, Spotted Sea Trout, Shark, Snook, Black Sea Bass, Cobia, Triple Tail, Flounder, Scallops and more.

Capt. Nick Runs a 24’ KenCraft Bay Challenger which is powered by a quiet and reliable 200hp Yamaha engine. Fully equipped with Lowrance navigational equipment the vessel features a wide open deck which offers ample space and a stable fishing platform for many guests. If you need to cool off from the hot Florida sun simply unfold the large bimini top that covers most of the boat. Unlike many boats this KenCraft is able to float in only 12” of water and still provide a smooth and dry ride.

It’s recommended guests bring food and drinks for their trip as well as a hat, sunglasses, sunblock and a camera to document their fishing adventure! Everything else needed is provided: rods, tackle, bait, ice, scalloping gear, fish cleaning and fishing license.

    This trip consists of running out to our crystal clear grass flats where guests will hop in the water with snorkeling gear on and search for delicious scallops. We provide snorkeling gear if you don't have any. Typically done in 3-6' of water depending on tide it's a blast for the entire family. There's lots to see other than just scallops. There's lots of wildlife above and below the waterline to look at. A waterproof camera is a plus! This trip is for 1-6 guests and runs 7am-12pm
