Please note: Grouper season starts 1 September. Please do not book a grouper trip prior to that date. If you've ever wanted to enjoy amazing fish-fighting action while catching some delicious table fish off of one of America's premier waterfronts, this might be the trip for you. Captain Kevin is a pro and loves to show clients all that the Crystal River area has to offer, especially its tastiest eating fish: Groupers. You'll hook these fish using bottom fishing techniques, and trolling lipped plugs. Capt. Kevin will get you to where the fish are, then help you place the perfect bait or lure to attract a big bite. Even though you're in shallower water, there are heavyweights down below! These fish are not happy to be caught, and you'll have to bring your skill, strength, and stamina once they're hooked. You'll chase the fish from the deck of Captain Kevin's 24' Aeon bay boat—the perfect vessel for fishing the inshore waters here in Crystal beach. She's powered by an ultra-reliable 300 HP Mercury Verado so you'll be on the fish in no time, and she has all the additional electronics you could ask for, including GPS and FishFinder, plus a Live Well. You will be utilizing high end tackle like Accurate and Florida Fishing Products reels to reel in Grouper, Snapper, and Hogfish . There is always a chance for Cobia, Sharks, and Mackerel to make an appearance as well. All you need to bring along is proper clothing, sunscreen, and a pair of polarized sunglasses! Capt. Kevin will bring the rest, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Read More

If drowning a shrimp or tossing lures doesn’t excite you nearly as much as the art of fly casting, Captain August has the trip for you down in Homosassa, FL. There is nothing more beautiful in all of the fishing than watching a perfect fly cast land a fly inches from an unsuspecting fish’s nose. Now throw in a perfect cast to a tailing Redfish or a Daisy Chaining Pod of Tarpon and you have an angling experience that will never be forgotten. Homosassa’s legendary maze of islands is home to some of the most sought-after game fish for fly fishermen. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Tripletail, Jack Crevalle, Mackerel, Bonita, and even Grouper are just a few of the species that are targeted while on a fly fishing trip with Shoalwater Adventures and because all of these species call the waters off the Nature Coast home year-round, the possibility of tangling with each of these species can occur on any given day. Captain August welcomes you to bring your own gear if you'd like. But he can provide the whole setup for you as well! So no matter your skill level, all you need to bring with you are you're favorite snacks and drinks, and Captain August will show you what saltwater fly fishing is all about! Read More
