Crystal River Shark Fishing Charters

Shark Fishing Adventure

Crystal River, Florida offers some of the best shark fishing in the area. With an active season that lasts from Spring through Fall, it is rarely a bad time to schedule a shark fishing charter.

Fishing for sharks is an adrenalin rush combined with an arm shredding workout. Battling these beasts in shallow water can also provide explosive surface busting action!

The shark species available to target here include:

  • Blacktip Sharks
  • Tiger Sharks
  • Bull Sharks
  • Sharpnose Sharks
  • Hammerhead Sharks

Shark fishing charters are also kid-friendly! Since there is a constant flow of action in this type of fishing, kids will find themselves engaged during every fishing moment.

Can you keep sharks you catch in Crystal river?

Yes! There are some great tasting species with regulations that allow for harvesting. While you will not keep every shark you catch, a single shark can provide enough meat to last a long time. There are numerous recipes for shark steaks available online, or you can talk with your guide about some local favorites.

Our main goal is for you to enjoy a great day on the water pulling on some of the most powerful fish species in the area.
