Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Homosassa

According to customer reviews, Reel Em In Fishing Charters, Finntastick Charters, and BWC Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Homosassa, Florida. Full list of top fishing charters in Homosassa.

The average price for a private 4 hour Homosassa fishing trip is $417, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $531 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Reel Em In Fishing Charters, Finntastick Charters, and BWC Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Homosassa.

The most popular fish species you can target are Snook, Redfish, and Sheepshead. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Spinning, and Bottom Fishing. Inshore fishing, flats fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Homosassa is one of Florida’s Gulf Coast’s best-kept secrets. This small town lies on its eponymous river and offers up a range of wildlife unrivaled almost anywhere in the Sunshine State. The name comes from the Seminole for “river of fishes,” and locals are proud to maintain their tradition. That’s why you’ll have no trouble finding a Homosassa fishing charter to cater to your needs!
 
Three rivers feed into the backcountry, flats, and out into the Gulf of Mexico here. That means that there’s no shortage of angling opportunities. Scallops are a delicacy in these parts, while world-record Tarpon have also been caught here. Expect creatures of all shapes and sizes, with Snappers, Jacks, Tripletail, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and many more biting inshore.
 
Hop aboard a nearshore charter, and you’ll find yourself battling Groupers, Kingfish, Cobia, Triggerfish, Hogfish, Amberjack, and the elusive Red Snapper when the season hits. The further you go, the bigger they get, so don’t be shy about spending a full day in the Gulf going after some monster fish!
 
Inshore trips can last anywhere from a couple of hours to 10 hours or more. Beginners and families tend to prefer shorter trips, while the more keen among you will relish the chance to make the most of it all day long. During Tarpon season, night trips are popular!  Nearshore trips usually last around six hours, but you’ll want a full day if you’re going out into the deep.
 

Rules & Regulations

Despite the brackish nature of some of the fishing grounds out of Homosassa, it’s all considered saltwater when it comes to fishing. Because of that, your fishing license will be covered when going out on a charter, and your professional guide will make sure you stay within all legal limits.

January

Fishing on the flats and in the rivers is perfect at the start of the year, when Redfish and Speckled Trout make their way inshore to keep warm. You can even head out to the Saint Martins Keys!

February

Great fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout continues. You’re likely to catch a variety of other species inshore, too, including Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Snook. 

March

Fishing for Speckled Trout gets even better in spring, and Cobia start to appear close to shore. Out on the reefs, you can catch Seabass, Hogfish, and some Grouper species.

April

The fishing in Homosassa is fantastic in April! Snook and Cobia reach their peak seasons, while Redfish and Speckled Trout are biting more than ever. Keep an eye out for some early Tarpon, too.

May

Tarpon fishing is in full swing by May. With average temperatures around 76°F, the weather is perfect for an offshore run to the reefs, where you might land Grouper, Hogfish, Amberjack, and much more.

June

June is the best time to head offshore, when the seasons for Gag Grouper and Red Snapper finally open to fishermen. Of course, there might be a record-breaking Tarpon inshore with your name on it. 

July

Scallop season is open! Soon the rivers will be full of tourists eager to bring home a sack full of these mollusks. Inshore game fishing has never been better, with your choice of Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and more.

August

The summer hype continues, with excellent fishing from the rivers to the Middle Grounds offshore. Redfish are peaking for the first time since spring, while the last of the Tarpon will giving you a run for your money.

September

Scallop season will be closing soon and you’re not likely to find any Tarpon near Homosassa by the start of fall. But it’s still a great time to fish for Snook, Cobia, Redfish, and other species inshore.

October

If the weather allows, this can be a great time to hit the reefs for Grouper, Seabass, and more. Fishing inshore will produce all the usual suspects, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead.

November

Some of the biggest Redfish around here are caught in November, when the weather is nice and cool. Bottom fish will be biting more on the reefs, just be sure to check the weather forecast before heading out. 

December

Winter is a great time to fish inshore for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, and other game fish. Average temperatures are around 60°F, so some red hot action is just what you want to keep warm.

Great communication! We had to reschedule because of weather. Then, I have to push out meeting time because of a Tropical storm call. Captain Randy waited at the ramp for over an hour. Never mentioned it. Professional guy! We have fished with some Captains that did not have conversation with our kids. Not Capt Randy! He was so good with the kids and answered the many questions they had! Boat was nice, fast, with a lot of room. Take this Captain you won't be sorry I did!

We didn't fish so I cannot say what we would recommend but definitely try scalloping if you are looking for a new experience.

The weather this year was warmer than normal, so that limits to what you may catch. I would advise you to call the charters ahead of time and discuss what kind of fish you want to target. Then charter can be prepared appropriately for you trip.

You must use a guide service to learn the area. Very shallow water even at high tide. That said, fishing in Homosassa area is great.

My son and I had the pleasure of fishing with Capt. David Maki on the 21st & 22nd of April 2023, out of MacRaes’s in Homasassa. We both had the time of our lives. We limited out on Spotted Seatrout and Red Drum both days. We also caught keeper Sea Bass and Grunt(yum!). Capt. Maki’s boat and his fishing tackle were all clean and in good condition. He is a great guy and an excellent guide. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to fish in beautiful Citrus County.

Capt David made sure we had a great time. He took time teaching my family how it’s done and we had so much fun! My 90yo father in law caught our first catch of the day and he had a blast. My teenage son enjoyed the trip so much too. We caught a few trouts and he cleaned and fillet for us! Awesome experience!

Caught our limits of Redfish and Trout.. Capt Mike's knowledge of the water, where to go what to throw and how to present was spot on.. And his knowledge of the water and how to get into the shallows is priceless... better than an airboat ride! Will be going out again next time in Homosassa!

Bite was tough, but Captain David tried everything he could to get on the bite. I had my two young boys that needed some help and he was great with kids. Boat was clean and well maintained. He also took into account the rough waters due to high winds to make it enjoyable for the boys. We'll be back.

Best day ever! My husband and 3 teenagers went and had a great time! Trip went smoothly from the booking to the end. Great communication and equipment! Captain Todd kept them on the fish and had them try several different species. Very informative, polite, worked well with the kids, safe trip and did a great job taking care of the fish afterwards. Even saw dolphins! Would definitely go again!!
