Rock Grass Fishing Charters

Rock Grass Fishing Charters invites you on a scalloping and fishing adventure in Homosassa, Florida. They offer Homosassa Springs tours mixed with scalloping for a true Floridian experience, or a shallow water fishing trip for some of the best species around.

You will fish aboard a 25-foot Carolina Skiff originally built in 2014, and restored in 2018. Powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, this boat is super fast with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. She can whisk up to 6 guests to the best and most productive fishing spots in a heartbeat and proves very efficient when changing locations.

Rock Grass Fishing Charters offers Inshore fishing in the Homosassa and Crystal River area, using light tackle to target Redfish and Spotted Seatrout. These species are present year-round in Florida, with the peak season running from March through September. Both fish are good game and food quality, and not to mention, look super attractive in your photos.

Another popular target on charter trips are Scallops. These tasty saltwater clams are a huge hit as soon as the season starts. They provide a great family bonding experience for those who search for them. Captain Paul offers Scalloping-only trips, as well as Scalloping and Homosassa Springs excursions. Once you collect the scallops off of the seabed, you can leave them to be cleaned (at an extra cost) while you visit the springs and take a swim in the crystal clear waters.

Now, if you already have a trip date in mind, check the captain’s calendar for an opening, book a trip to your liking, and start planning your next angling adventure today!

Captain Paul was born and raised in Homosassa and has been fishing the local waters his whole life. When the opportunity arose for him to run his own fishing charter business, he took it and has not looked back since. He loves fishing for Redfish on the flats, and knows the best spots to catch these beautiful fish.
