Florida Inshore Fishing Charters - Homossasa

Florida Inshore Fishing Charters specializes in fun and family-friendly adventures on the waters of the West Coast. Spend a day out with Captain Keith Benson. Fish with a Florida native and see how the locals do it!

Florida Inshore Fishing Charters will take you anywhere from Homosassa to Boca Grande. You will see what’s the backcountry, inshore, and nearshore fishing is all about.

Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your life, you don’t have to worry. Capt. Keith will show you the ropes and assist throughout the adventure.

Inshore, you will be targeting the ‘Silver King’ Tarpon, Snook, Trout, and Redfish. Nearshore, within 9 miles from the coast, you will be fishing for Cobia, Snapper, Mackerel, and many other species. The list of your potential catches will depend on the season and the tides.

Capt. Keith will greet you with a warm welcome aboard his 23’ Bay Boat. She is a spacious vessel that provides comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers. The boat is rigged with navigational electronics and fish finding equipment to save your time while searching for fish.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. Capt. Keith will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and license. When you’re done fishing, he will clean your catch so that you could enjoy it for dinner later.

Join Capt. Keith aboard his fishing machine and have fun catching!
