Often called the Gateway to the Gulf of Mexico. 8 mile stretch of river leading to the Gulf.  Manatee are common in the winter months.  Live bait fish are good for large mouth bass. Shrimp and small spinners are good for bream and mangrove snapper fish. 

Homosassa River fishing is home to both fresh
water and salt water fish.

Best known for an over-wintering area for manatees. The water is clear and often Capt. Steve and his anglers can see the fish they are after.
