Florida fishing guide service

For flats fishing at it's finest, come along with Capt. Glen Touchton and fish the pristine, unspoiled waters of Homosassa, Ozello, and Crystal River, Florida. The grass flats here are crystal clear and surrounded by hundreds of mangrove islands. Homosassa and Crystal River still remain undiscovered and continue to be Florida's best kept fishing secrets. It's not uncommon to be out on a fishing charter for an entire day and never see another boat!

ABOUT CAPT. TOUCHTON

If you're looking to charter a Florida flats fishing guide, I hope to hear from you soon. I'm a Native Floridian, and have been fishing the Homosassa, Crystal River, and Ozello area all of my life. Fortunately, I've been able to take a favorite pastime and develop it into a full time profession. A lifetime spent fishing the waters of this area has provided me with the knowledge to put my customers on fish at the right time, at the right place.

TYPES OF FISH

The Crystal River, Ozello, and Homossasa waters provide fisherman with ample opportunity for a wide variety of fish. Common species of fish include redfish, trout , cobia, shallow- water grouper, and tarpon. Redfish are plentiful here year round. Trout, Cobia, Grouper, and Tarpon tend to be more seasonal. Any fisherman familiar with fishing for reds knows the adrenalin-rush of hooking up on a big bull red! Whether you've been fishing all your life or just a beginner, flats fishing for redfish is awesome!

MY BOAT

I fish out of a custom 20' long and 8' wide skiff. This boat skims across the skinniest of waters, and gets into the shallowest of creeks where the fish try and hide. The flat bottom and wide hull of my boat provide excellent stability when you're fighting a big redfish or gator trout. My boat is also equipped with a bow mounted trolling motor for an extremely quiet approach. I can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers.

AREA INFO

Citrus County, Florida is conveniently located and just a short drive from Tampa, Gainesville, and Ocala. Crystal River is only about an hour and a half drive from Orlando, making it an ideal location for a Florida family vacation. I encourage anyone considering a Florida vacation to come visit the beautiful unspoiled nature of Citrus County. Fishing charters often include close encounters with manatees, eagles, osprey, and playful dolphin. Crystal River and Homossasa are famous for the abundant population of manatee, especially during the winter months. Swimming with the manatees is an opportunity you don't want to miss out on.

FISHING CHARTER INFO

I specialize in light tackle and fish the backcountry/inshore flats. Common types of bait used include live pinfish, shrimp, cut mullet, jerk baits, and spoons. Top quality Quantum rods, and reels are used on all fishing charters.

I PROVIDE ALL TACKLE, BAIT, ICE, AND FISHING LICENSE. ALL YOU NEED TO BRING IS LUNCH & DRINKS, HAT, SUNGLASSES, SUNBLOCK, AND ENOUGH ENERGY TO FIGHT SOME AWESOME FISH!
