Book with Captain Bryan! Dress warm in the morning and a bring a light rain jacket--you will get wet from sea spray. The waters can be choppy on the boat ride to fishing site. But it is worth it to find the fish!

We went for Scallops. They were a good size and plentiful enough to keep us busy.

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.

Yes, but be careful of the oyster bars if running your own boat. They will take out a prop or lower unit in a heart beat.

Water is nice and warm in the summer. Keep up the sunscreen and watch the weather because it can change in an hour.

We went scalloping (not fishing). Come prepared for a strong swim. You may have to swim against the tide, chase fleeing shellfish, etc. If you catch a few and then don't see any for a while, don't get discouraged. Keep it up. Don't be affraid to try something new, but at the same time don't totally give up what brought you success to begin with.

The Crystal River can be really shallow, so make sure you're out with an experienced captain. Either use SPF 50 sunscreen or wear long shirt/pants. The sun is no joke. Even with a 50, one of us got really burned. Drink water!! When we were out, we had a descent breeze, but it's still really warm. Have fun and enjoy!!

It is a beautiful, natural, rural area. Great fishery, things heat up in the warmer monthes.. April is stormy and unpredictable.

The weather was absolutely amazing. It was a sunny day with a mild breeze, which was perfect for fishing. The water was like glass and the sunset was gorgeous!!!

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.
