The Captain

U.S. Coast Guard Licensed and insured Captain Nicholas Warrington has been fishing the Crystal River waters for years.  A long time member of the Coastal Conservation Association.  He also has a degree in Environmental Science from the University of South Florida.  

At the ripe age of 24 Capt. Nick likes to have a laid back vibe on the boat.  Always keeping things light and fun for his guests.  He will attend to any tangle, knot tying, fish unhooking, and hook baiting throughout our fishing charter.  Don't worry about being an inexperienced angler.  Capt. Nick has the patience to teach anglers at any skill level.  Being out on the water is definitely his passion. Sharing that passion is our mission here at High Octane Fishing LLC.  

The Vessel

 A custom built 24' KenCraft bay boat powered by a quiet and reliable Yamaha 150hp engine.   The tower on the rear opens up the front of the vessel.  Providing a ton of room for many anglers to fish making it the perfect boat for fishing charters in Crystal River. Unlike many flat bottomed guide boats in the region the KenCraft 238 bay provides a smooth and dry ride when the seas kick up, yet can still float in 12" of water. 

The vessel is outfitted with all kinds of fishing goodies.  Most noticeably the custom built tower which allows the captain to spot fish and direct clients where to cast (very advantageous for Cobia and Triple Tail fishing). Additionally it has cushioned seats(front and rear), an 8' Power Pole Blade anchor, Yeti coolers, Simrad electronics, wireless MotorGuide trollingmotor, VHF radio, removable bimini top for shade, jack plate, trim tabs, and dive ladder.
