With a home base on the Florida’s Nature Coast I focus mainly on providing custom fishing trips and paddle tours in Crystal River, Florida and the surrounding area. This covers Ozello, Homosassa, and Chassahowitzka River and Bay.

All my tours are done via L2Fish or L4expedition style catamarans by Live Watersports. Each paddle board is stable and very spacious. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver through the skinny waters or open flats.

Fishing Crystal River, Florida and the surrounding area provides wonderful access to redfish, snook, sea trout, tarpon, and largemouth bass.

  • Cooler and drinks provided along with tackle, rods, and gear.

  • Welcome to bring your own paddle craft and fishing equipment, drinks, etc. as well.

  • Fishing License Not Included

Come enjoy the backwaters and LIVE the real Florida lifestyle.

We had such a good time!

My friend Kay and I had the opportunity to be on one of the first tours Capt. Casey took out with Backwater Fish & Paddle. We are amateur fisher-women at best, but Casey was very patient. We saw beautiful scenery, very few other people, manatees, and tons of fish!! Casey handled everything. All we had to do was cast and enjoy! I would highly recommend Backwater Fish & Paddle to anyone looking to have a great day on the water!
