About Us

The Homosassa Guides Association

The Homosassa Guides Association (HGA) has helped visitors and locals alike enjoy the area’s acclaimed angling for over half a century. Some of our members are fourth-generation guides, with a love of this business literally in their blood. All are proven professionals, accomplished angling experts with the know-how to navigate these rock-filled waters to celebrated fishing spots.

Each member of the HGA operates independently, enjoying his own specialties and owning his own boat and equipment. And every guide must pass a comprehensive test before becoming one of us, proving a profound knowledge of these waters.
All of our captains are also USCG certified and provide saltwater fishing licenses for up to four fishers.

When you embark on your Homosassa fishing adventure, you’ll enjoy the comfort that our classic skiffs provide-as well as the bait, tackle, ice and use of rods and reels that we provide at no additional charge. One to three anglers are preferred to ensure plenty of room, but some of our guides’ boats can comfortably accommodate four.

Beginning or advanced angler, light-tackle buff, fly-fishing fan or deep-sea diehard, half or full day, you’re guaranteed a great time on the water with us. And from business trips to family reunions, we can meet your group excursion needs.
We can also tailor a trip to hook the specific fish of your fancy-trout, redfish, cobia, grouper, giant tarpon or many other saltwater species. Some guides even provide a shore dinner service that features the fresh catch of the day and all the trimmings.
Whether your ideal fishing experience comes with a fly, spin or plug, trust HGA to provide experienced guides and unsurpassed fishing fun.
