Live Action Fishing Adventures

1 Southwest 1st Place
Crystal River FL, United States

Captain Justin Rolph of Live Action Fishing Charters is a native of Crystal River, Florida, who has been fishing the local waters all his life. Always doing his best to help you land a great fish while making long-lasting memories, he is a very laid back guy who is also very passionate about fishing.

Live Action Fishing Charters fish aboard a 22 ft Nautic Star center console boat that can comfortably accommodate up to four people on fishing charters, and six on scalloping trips. This smooth-riding boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine to get you to the best fishing spots fast, and its GPS and fishfinder will help the captain pinpoint the very best places to fish on the day of your trip. There is also an icebox onboard to keep your drinks and snacks cool throughout the trip.

Captain Justin Rolph is an expert in fishing the wide variety of inshore and nearshore fish that inhabit the local waters. Whether you want to fish the flats, sight casting for Redfish and Snook, or to head into slightly deeper waters in search of Mangrove Snappers, Gag Groupers, Tripletail, Sheepshead, and Sharks, Live Action Charters have the gear you need to hook your target fish. And if you’d rather spend your day on the water searching for scallops in the summertime, Captain Justin will take you to the best spots and provide you with snorkeling gear so you can search for scallops in style.

All the fishing and scalloping equipment you need is included in the price of the trip, and the captain is also happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip.

“Looking forward to seeing you at the dock!” - Captain Justin

    Scalloping is a huge thing in this area of Florida. The shallow water gives you a great opportunity to dive for these little guys and have a blast doing it! Not to mention it's some great table fare! One of my favorite things to do during the summer time. Season: July 1st - Sept 24th

Fishing wasn't a part of my lifestyle like it is now and I don't think I was as interested with fishing as much as having a personal life when I was going through high school. My younger years and more recent ones I wanted nothing more than to be on the water with a rod and reel. Through the years I've learned many new things and I've really enjoyed showing others the small details about fishing and their tendency's. So I decided to take my life to level and do something I love. And here we are!

My son an I had a charter last Saturday with Capt Justin and we had a fantastic time. He was very patient. While I have some saltwater experience, my son has none. Capt Justin explained where we were going, what we were doing and why. He explained everything that a novice needs to know. He put us on the reds in no time at all and we came away with a 23 and a 26 redfish. We are already contemplating a return trip this winter with Capt Justin. Thank you, Sir, for a completely enjoyable day!
