Our fishing charters are private charters which means only your group or family will be on the boat.  We fish the rivers, grass flats, oyster and sand bars, shallow water rocks, mangrove creeks, spoil banks and Crystal Bay. We provide all tackle and bait and prefer using spinning tackle, 8-20 lb. test, casting jigs and artificial or live baits.  The variety of our catch can include Speckled Sea Trout, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Black Sea Bass, Grouper, Cobia,  Shark and many other species.

Our boat, a classic 1976- 24' ProLine, was built in Crystal River, specifically for fishing the Nature Coasts shallow water as well as able to handle deeper open bay water. These boats maintain their popularity because of their ability to float and operate in very shallow water. Our boat, named "Traditions" was originally owned and fished by well known local fishing guide Johnny Elmer. We purchased the boat from Johnny in 1991 and are only the second owners.  "Traditions" has been refurbished several times and is very comfortable and safe.
