Red Fin Addict is a charter with a real passion for the shallow waters of Florida and the fish that swim in them. It is run by Captain Heath, a native Floridian who has more than 30 years of experience fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. He will be able to take you to the best shallow spots in order to put you on fish, all the while having a fun and relaxing time. Each trip is an adventure to be remembered and is guaranteed to produce a nice catch for you to make dinner. Captain Heath has a “client first” mentality which is sure to make this an adventure you will remember forever.

You will fish aboard the 22’ Pathfinder flats boat which was built in 2005 and has a capacity for 4 guests. It is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine which makes it fast on the shallow waters. You will find the boat is equipped with an excellent GPS, fishfinder and a VHF radio, as well as safety equipment such as flares, a first-aid kit, life jackets, and fire extinguishers. The boat also has an anchoring system which will allow you to anchor in the spots full of fish, as well as an icebox that will keep your catch fresh until you return to the shore.

Red Fin Addict will take you fishing in West Central Florida, covering some of the best fishing spots including Homosassa, Crystal River, and the surrounding waters. You will target species such as Snook, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish, among other shallow water fish. Captain Heath will provide rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial bait, and a fishing license for the saltwater of Florida. You will also have drinks available on board, and a cleaning and filleting service at the end of the trip.
