Windsplitter Charters offers half day and full day fishing adventures in the abundant flats of Homosassa, Florida. Homosassa is known for its great fishery that includes some of the most desirable shallow water species such as Redfish and Trout. The nutrient-rich water beds of Homosassa are also home to Scallops, which, come season, bring in a huge amount of tourists and Scallop-hunters.
Other species you can target in this area include the super-delicious Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, and more.
Captain Duane operates a 20-foot Micro Draft skiff originally built in 2006 with a capacity for 4 guests. It is powered by a 60 HP Mercury engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots. This speed means you will get to the productive areas quickly, and not lose time when moving from one good location to the next.
The vessel is excellent for shallow water with a wide fishing platform and plenty of space for the guests. You will find all the USCG-approved safety gear including life vests and a CPR-trained crew for your safety. There is also a GPS and a fishfinder, as well as an icebox for the catch, and snorkeling equipment for the Scalloping trips.
When it comes to the fishing gear, Windsplitter Charters will provide everything for you. The rods and the reels, the tackle, the bait, and the fishing license. All you have to bring is a positive attitude and a burning desire to catch lots of fish! Oh, and don’t forget a cooler to transport your fish home in. Captain Duane will clean and fillet your catch so it will be ready to go straight on the grill!

The trip began in a beautiful and peaceful area of the river. The boat was clean, the captain was friendly and there was ample shade on the boat. As we took off at wake speed down the river we passed several kayaks and other boaters enjoying the beautiful scenery. Everyone was friendly and waved as we passed. Right before the wake speed ended we stopped to feed the birds. I’ve never had birds take bread right out of my hand before. That was an awesome little addition to the experience.
Once we reached the scallop grounds we geared up and jumped in. The water was the perfect temperature. Captain Duane has some great spots marked for scalloping. It was not crowded at all in the area with other boats and we were able to easily find scallops. As we retrieved scallops and drifted from the boat, Captain Duane would move the boat towards us so we could easily get in and out to take breaks or unload scallops. He was very attentive to our needs as customers. We ended up with the max amount of scallops allowed per person! On the way back to the river we were followed by three playful dolphins which was amazing to see and of coarse I said yes to feeding the birds on the way back. Overall I had a great experience on the Windsplitter and I look forward to another trip in the future. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Capt Duane took us to all the “hot spots” for our fishing adventure. We caught 2 beautiful redfish and several sea trout on our day out. We had a “Canadian” fisherman that enjoyed his first flats fishing trip. We will definitely do this trip again.
