Late Feb, we spent a few days with Southern Slam Outfitters. The bite was a little slow, but the Capt pulled all stops to get us into fish. He's is a real guide and fisherman, not just a boat driver with poles. He even put up with me fly fishing and put me in the right spot for my first sea trout. Now, I've got snook on my mind.
Capt. Carey is awesome! Our Scouts are still talking about this incredible experience. Not only did we all catch fish, but Capt. Carey took the time to teach about the fish and the unique habitat of the Homosassa area. He explained how to use the tackle and displayed how to tie a variety of fishing knots. The day ended with the best southern fish fry I have ever had. We are planning to fish with Capt. Carey every year.
If you're looking for a great place to kayak - and to fish - look no further! Captain Carey and his crew took care of 6 of us on the Private Island over a long weekend and we had a blast. The area is quiet and pristine and offers endless hours of relaxing time on the water. We caught Reds, Specs and Snook which were prepared and cooked each evening. The Private Island is rustic and the sunsets are beyond words. The facilities are basic but are very conformable and offer fresh water (for showers and the like), electricity (A/C in the rooms) and plenty of open areas for cooking and getting caught up at the end of the day. What a place! Thanks for everything Carey!
We had the best day scalloping with Captain Carey and Jr. today. I hope to make this an annual trip and would highly recommend them! This was our first time scalloping and we had the best day! The kids can't wait to go back!
Cpt Hunter was fantastic! He definitely knows where the scallops are. He was very personable and had excellent boating skills as well. We will be booking with him again.
Rustic, beautiful, and a side of Florida everyone is missing out on. We took in sights, had a great scallop charter, and spent one memorable night on The Island with great friends. A seafood boil 2nd to none. Thanks again.
Captain Carey Gibson took my husband, brother in law, and myself out for a day of fishing while the rest of our family took a day trip Orlando. This was our first time fishing EVER and Captin Carey made us pro's by the end of the day! Captain Carey has cleary been guiding on the waters of Homosassa for many years and it shows! We were catching Redfish until the sun came down. All three of us caught our limit on Redfish as well as Trout. Needless to say Captain Carey sent us home with a cooler full of fish for dinner and a new found love for inshore fishing.
Went out with Capt Carey mid-Nov 2017. Very windy day. Carey put us on the fish when others got skunked. He's a great guy and really knows his stuff! Highly recommended!
Captain Carey Gibson is an awesome fishing and scalloping guide in Homosassa. Knows the inshore fishery well, and has an awesome private island you can rent - which I plan to do next. Thanks!
We hired Carey for a scallop trip this summer and couldn't have been more pleased! We had a great day out on the water and he stayed out until we caught our limit of scallops. My 9 year old nephews and in-laws were all first time scallopers and everyone had a great experience. The boys even got ice cream for finding special scallops! My only complaint about our whole experience was that Captain Carey was too polite to tell me that my backside was getting sunburned from so much snorkeling... :)
