Captain Jody Johnson

West Woodland Place
Homosassa FL, United States

Captain Jody Johnson offers premier fishing trips in the Homosassa, Florida waters. He can take you on a flats and backcountry trip, or an inshore and nearshore adventure depending on the time of the year and the species you wish to target. Captain Jody is a professional who provides an excellent customer service while also sharing his vast fishing knowledge.

Captain Jody grew up fishing the Homosassa waters, and is a proud 4th generation fisherman and guide in his family. He loves being on the water and sharing the secret spots and the beauty of this area with his guests. He invites you to join him on his boat for an unforgettable experience.

You will go out aboard a Carolina Skiff originally built in 2016 with a capacity for up to 4 guests. It is powered by a 150 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 48 knots. The speedy boat will save you time getting out and back in, so you can concentrate on the fishing.

The boat features a GPS and a fishfinder which can both help you locate the best fishing spots, and a wireless trolling motor to make you super quiet when trolling the shallow waters.

Captain Jody will provide you with the snorkeling gear, the spearfishing gear, and conventional rods, reels, and tackle. Using the live and artificial baits, you will target a number of inshore species such as Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Snook, or nearshore species such as Cobia, Bluefish, Black Seabass, Jack Crevalle, and Grouper.
