Grouper Dave's Charters


Whether you’re looking to spend a day on the water with the family or put your abilities to the rest with your buddies, Grouper Dave’s Charter has the flats, inshore and offshore fishing trips you’re looking for. Captain Dave has been fishing in these waters his entire life and literally knows the Citrus County and Gulf of Mexico waters like the back of his hand.

Let us know if you’re interested in a particular species and we’ll help you select the trip accordingly. Some common inshore finds, for example, include redfish, trout, jacks, flounder, cobia and small sharks. Grouper and snapper season opens July 1 and is always a rewarding and exciting offshore experience.

Our half- and full-day fishing trips include all bait, tackle and lunch. We recommend that you bring a high SPF sunscreen, hat, light jacket or long sleeve shirt, drinks and snacks. We look forward to seeing you for a great day out on the water!


As you can see from these photos, we catch a variety of fish in the Crystal River flats and offshore, including grouper, snapper, redfish and snook. Depending on the season, we also pull goliath grouper, trout, cobia, mackerel, flounder, ladyfish, seabags, bluefish, kingfish and bonita.

Captain Grouper Dave

Having spent his entire life in Crystal River, it’s safe to say that nobody knows these waters like Captain Dave Moore. As a boy, Captain Dave began learning the topography of the local rivers in and around the gulf while fishing with friends and family. What began as a hobby quickly grew into a passion and lifelong love for fishing. Captain Dave was lucky enough to find out what he wanted to do for the rest of his life at a young age. Over the years, he has been able to turn his drive and interest in local fishing into a successful and rewarding career.

While Captain Dave loves any kind of angling he can get his hook on, a few of his favorites are inshore fishing, deep sea grouper and scalloping. Inshore, Captain Dave is usually on the lookout for snook, trout and redfish. Offshore finds generally include cobra, king mackerel, grouper and snapper.
