Florida is chock-full of prime and pristine fishing locations. You are bound to have a successful trip no matter where you end up, but one location stands out among the rest. Homosassa, Florida is that place. Situated along the Nature Coast on the Gulf of Mexico, Homosassa is in the heart of not only incredible fishing, but excellent wildlife viewing and an ecosystem unlike anywhere else in the world.
Florida is envied by many states for a number of reasons. It’s aptly nicknamed the sunshine state; it has beautiful, white sandy beaches and some incredible spring-fed rivers that offer up a crystal clear view into the underwater world. But what Florida is probably most renowned for is its world class fishing. From offshore fishing for billfish and tasty snapper to inshore fishing for world record tarpon, line-ripping snook or bull reds to some of the vastest cypress swamps for LARGE largemouth bass, Florida is indeed a fisherman’s paradise. Of all the locations throughout the state to fish in, Homosassa along the Nature Coast is one of the most prestigious areas to wet a line in; especially if it’s inshore action you’re looking for.
Southern Slam Outfitters has created a 5 part series dedicated to fishing for the Florida redfish. Undoubtedly one of the most commonly sought after gamefish for inshore fisherman in the state, the redfish never ceases to disappoint.
