Hog Tide is the premier offshore fishing service located at the Homosassa Springs Marina, on the Homosassa river. If you are an experienced angler looking for a first class tournament catching boat, we’ve got you covered. In contrast we also offer laid back group or family offshore fishing as well. Captain Brian will plan a fishing trip to suit your needs.
Our boat is one of the biggest and fastest boats providing licensed and permitted offshore fishing charters. The Hog Tide is a large fully equipped vessel that provides a comfortable and safe ride to and from the offshore fishing grounds.
The Hog Tide is a Federal Gulf Reef Fish and Gulf Migratory Species Permitted Vessel. This permits us to legally offer offshore fishing charters into federally regulated Gulf of Mexico waters. Our offshore fishing trips regularly target grouper. Catches of Gag grouper, Red Grouper, Scamp Grouper and Goliath Grouper are plentiful. Limits for grouper are 4 fish per angler. In addition to grouper, catches of Mangrove Snapper, Red Snapper, Cobia, Kingfish, and Hog Fish are frequent.
Gulf Reef fishing is a fast action and constant rod bending type of fishing. There are many unique fishing techniques that Captain Brian uses to ensure his anglers are on the fish, trolling, heavy chumming, live bait fishing and kite fishing are some techniques to name a few.
Weather you are a hardcore fisherman or a family looking for a memorable outdoors adventure, Captain Brian and Hog Tide Fishing Charters can accommodate you and fulfill your fishing dreams.
