Fishbonz Charters

Capt. Mike Haynes Crystal River, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Fishbonz Charters offers many types of fishing, including fly fishing.

Captain Mike Haynes has been guiding customers on great fishing adventures for over five years, but fishing for much longer. He enjoys sharing his love for fishing with customers of all ages. Now fishing the Crystal River (formerly of Pensacola) Captain Mike is ready to guide your crew to a great day on the water!

Comfortably fitting three passengers, the vessel is a 19ft Hewes Bayfisher. We get to the fishing grounds quickly with a 115HP Yamaha engine. Captain Mike also has outfitted the vessel with a 80lb Motorguide Wireless Pinpoint Trolling Motor that helps sneak up on the fish. Lowrance GPS and Down Scan Imaging makes sure we find the fish! Safety equipment is updated yearly, including life jackets.

Crystal River offers a wide variety of fish species to target, including Redfish, Sheepshead, Trout, and Flounder just to name a few. We usually start at sun-up to catch the fish while they are most active. Time of year will determine start-time; be sure to check with Captain Mike before meeting to coordinate.

Your Crystal River excursion includes fishing tackle, bait, rods/reels, and license. You are more than welcome to bring your own tackle and rods if you prefer. Also be sure to bring sunscreen, bug spray, hat, polarized sunglasses, and of course your camera!

Fishbonz Charters offers saltwater fishing for Redfish, Snook, Trout, and Tarpon. We also offer freshwater fishing for Catfish, Bluegill, and Largemouth Bass. Just let Captain Mike know what type of fishing you’d like, and he can accommodate your needs.

Customers enjoy learning from Captain Mike and often become return customers. He’s known as being one of the best sight fisherman in town, and often helps anglers of all skill level catch their personal bests! Book your trip with Captain Mike and Fishbonz Fishing Charters to see why he’s earned this reputation!

Crystal River fishing trips are a great way to spend the day as a family, and we look forward to guiding you to a memorable and successful day of fishing. Book with Fishbonz Charters today!
