Planning a fishing excursion can mean many different things to different anglers. Maybe you’re flying to exotic locations catching species that top your bucket list, or maybe you’re booking that offshore fishing charter targeting sweet tasting seafood or maybe it’s several days in your own backyard that you’re looking for. Perhaps those plans include your family or maybe it’s just a guys’ trip with a handful of your closet fishing buddies. Well regardless of what YOUR ideal fishing excursion may be, let me tell you how to have a truly unique experience here in the most beautiful areas in the world: Homosassa. Oh, and did I mention that it’s a world class fishery to boot? I’m talking about booking your own private island right here in the gorgeous waters of Homosassa with Southern Slam Outfitters.
Here at Southern Slam Outfitters, we have a beautifully equipped island that makes the perfect fishing retreat right here in Homosassa, FL. The island has two small cabins that can comfortably sleep up to six people and includes all the modern day amenities that you love. These include satellite TV, full utilities, a full kitchen and even a hot tub!
Homosassa, situated along the banks of the Homosassa River is home to an abundance of wildlife that is sure to keep you in awe, and fishing that will keep your line tight all day long. Enjoy your days kayaking, fishing, scalloping (seasonal), wildlife viewing or just kicked back relaxing in Florida’s natural habitat.
Homosassa is situated along the banks of the Homosassa River and sits between two additional, spring-fed rivers. This fresh, clear water influx gives way to phenomenal fishing where sight-casting reigns supreme. Search for snook, redfish, trout, and even resident juvenile tarpon throughout the network of mangrove islands and oyster bars. During seasonal migrations, large tarpon can be targeted and it is common to have fish in the 150 pound range being caught.
Scalloping is also a favorite pastime when scallop season is in (June through September). The area is also famous for wildlife. 250 species of birds, over 50 species of reptiles and amphibians, and at least 25 different species of mammals including the ever popular manatee!
