Deep South Outfitter

Crystal River is known to be a premier fishing spot for inshore species, as well as an excellent area for scalloping. Deep South Outfitter knows that well and will take you to the hottest fishing spots around, so get ready for some excellent inshore action!

Hop aboard their 22’ flats boat, manufactured by Micro Draft Boats. It’s powered by an outboard Yamaha engine, delivering 115 HP. That translates to an impressive maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, a testament to the boat’s quality.

Join Captain Billy Henderson as you stalk the inshore fishing grounds of Florida. The species you’ll be targeting are all prime specimens of Crystal River’s rich fish bounty - Redfish, Cobia, Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Scallops, Black Drum, and the prestigious Tarpon. Get ready to fish spin with light tackle, as well as try the more adventurous bowfishing and spearfishing.

All necessary equipment is provided by the captain, except flyfishing equipment, which anglers are required to provide. Bowfishing and spearfishing equipment is provided as well. Live bait is available. There’s no minimum age for children and the captain provides vests of all sizes. The crew will clean and fillet your catch free of charge.
