Fishing Charters for Inshore, Offshore, Grouper, Scalloping, and More.

The Crystal River and Homosassa areas of Citrus County otherwise known as the “Nature Coast” of Florida is a true fisherman’s paradise. Three major freshwater spring-fed rivers scattered throughout our area discharge right into the Gulf of Mexico creating an estuary that is second to none in the state of Florida. This is why, Florida Fishing Adventures | Crystal River, has dedicated all of our amazing fishing charters in this area.

Gin clear water and large areas of unspoiled islands, hidden backcountry coves, and miles of untouched creeks are just some of the habitats that anglers from all over the world flock to in search of “World Class” Redfish, Speckled Trout, Grouper, Tarpon, Tripletail, Flounder, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Permit, and Pompano – to name just a few.

Amazing fishing experience! Fantastic time fishing with Captain Lou! He explained everything clearly, was in constant communication about arranging the trip, very helpful in every way! He did everything he could too put me on fish and it was a successful trip! He was able to recommend hotels to satay, places to eat - an amazing guide and Ambassador for Citrus County!

Scalloping fun in the Gulf Great trip! Everything was very enjoyable for my husband and I by Capt. Louie and his mate. Scalloping is like underwater Easter egg hunt! Lol 😆 We enjoyed seeing all the sea life as well. Even had dolphins swimming next to us on the way out to the Gulf.

Great day scalloping with Capt. Louie We went scalloping with Capt. Louie and it was fantastic. He was informative about how to find scallops and answered all of our questions. This experience was unlike others as we were the only ones on the boat for the trip which made it nice. We caught our daily limit for scallops and Capt. Louie told us exactly where to go for them to be cleaned and cooked. Great tour that is a must during the scalloping season. Thanks for a great time Capt. Louie.

Another Successful Adventure Captain Louie was outstanding. This is my 3rd time with him. I am disabled with an ALS variant, in a wheelchair and he assured me he could get me in his boat. Well, he was right. I arrived at the boat and several guys at Shrimp Landing lifted me in my walker right in his boat. Took less than 10 seconds. As for fishing, we caught many varieties of fish, grouper, white grunt, hammerhead shark that I hooked, but broke the line. We got a pretty good look at him as he rolled 30 feet from the boat. Captain Louie said he was about 8-10 feet. My good friend Mike caught the 38" snook in the picture. What a battle that was. Mike landed him under Captain Louie's skillful guidance. It was too long so we had to throw it back. All in all we had another great trip on a spectacular day. Do not hesitate to reserve a trip on his charter. I'm going again in June. I can't wait.

Great guy My sons and I have used Capt Louie since he first became a guide (2018) in Crystal River. We have learned something from him every time we go. We have become better fishermen because of him. On top of that he's great with kids, a patient guide and become a good friend.

Great day, Redfish and speckled trout! I had a great day on the water with Captain Louie. We caught a 5 fish, 1 person limit of nice speckled trout then caught some redfish. I got a beautiful 26.5” redfish. Epic battle. He is an excellent guide with quality equipment. Will fish with him again next time I visit. Full bellies tonight!

Epic Fishing! Don't waste time doing any more research - book your trip with Florida Fishing Adventures. I've been fishing for most of my life, and living in Los Angeles the past 20+ years, I've spent a lot of time on short- and long-range trips fishing California and Mexican waters for tuna, yellowtail, dorado, Calico bass, etc., so suffice it to say I've done a lot of fishing. But when it comes to fishing for grouper, redfish and other species around Crystal River, I was clueless, so on a recent trip there I was smart enough to set up a charter for my buddies and me with Captain Louie at Florida Fishing Adventures. It was epic. First off, I saw a lot of different boats from the various outfitters and Cpt. Louie's rig rides like a dream, has a huge beam, and a ton of fishing space - a much better layout than any of the other boats I saw. Louie also didn't cut any corners when it comes to his fishing gear, with top-of-the line setups for our day on the water. But most importantly, Louie put us on the fish immediately, and coached us up on how to hook and land those grumpy grouper. We caught our limits of quality fish, which made for a great meal and ton of filets for the freezer. I won't even think about booking with another guide next time we're in town. So be sure to book your outing with FFA and you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful weather and wonderful fishing Captain Louie was fantastic. He knew where the fish were, he put us on them immediately and we had a full day of action. We had a great time and would recommend him to anyone.

Speckled Trout, Redfish in the wind. Round two with captain Louie was a little bit tougher, do to windy conditions. However, in the end, it was another knockout. He employed many tactics and techniques to get the fish to bite. It was so much fun changing things up to get fish in the boat. Popping bobbers was probably the most fun and something my wife could handle. The wind of course made casting difficult and limited but we adjusted and caught many fish. Captain Louie is so knowledgeable that I would fish with him in a Hurricane.
