Crystal River Fishing at its Finest

Few places compare to Crystal River when it comes to Florida sport fishing, salt or freshwater. Just as no other area hotel or resort compares to the comfort and outfitting we provide our guests at the Plantation on Crystal River! There really isn't a better place to cast out your lines to fish for an inshore slam of Tarpon, Redfish and Speckled Trout. Offshore opportunities include Grouper, a variety of Snapper, smoker Kingfish and Cobia to name a few. Pick the time of year and there will be a fishing season to enjoy with us!

If freshwater fishing is more your interest, our area has multiple lakes and reservoirs within short distances that provide excellent fishing for largemouth bass, crappie, brim, catfish and more. We can also arrange a charter with one of our area's fishing guides that will pick you up from our own dock for charters. And whether by charter or on your own, make sure to bring your catch back to our Resort so the Chef of our West 82º Grill can cook it for you!


Our Adventure Center includes our marina & dive shop has everything needed for you to enjoy your day on the water, from Live bait, tackle, ice, area charts and current fishing reports of what's running. Our team will schedule your launch from our own boat ramp and trailer storage, and make sure whatever provisions or equipment is needed, it will be taken care of.
