    Fly fishing in Homosassa for Redfish is some of the best around. Being able to pole around a foot or less of water and sight fish these fish is some of the most rewarding fishing out there. Hunting them down and watching them move around the skinny is a good way to get the blood pumping. Making good casts under that pressure isn’t always easy. Once you get one to eat right in front of you, you will be addicted!

    Throwing artificial on dock lights at night can be very rewarding. Bait gathers on dock lights and gets the fish fired up and hungry. Snook, Trout, Redfish, and sometimes Tripletail, sit under the docks in the shadows waiting to ambush, making it a fun way to catch fish! Being on the water at night is something special!

I have been fishing since I could walk. I went fishing with my Dad any chance I could. I always knew I wanted to be a charter captain – I finally got that opportunity and have been loving every minute of it! I love sharing what I know with people, and putting them on fish. I am very passionate about fishing and it's all I think about. I'll do everything I can to put you on some fish!
