Crystal River Seafood Platter FeaturedWritten by Captain Dan
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and if you were feeling like me, it was a little tough to get going this morning from eating such a great meal. However, a couple cups of coffee and rigging up the rods; I was ready for a great day with Matt, Mike and Tom out of Crystal River. Leaving from Pete's Pier Marina, we ran out the river and we were welcomed to an "extremely low tide". I had to get creative on my fishing locations, but deciding on working the cuts between the oyster bars, we began catching several trout to start the day. The trout bite was pretty steady, but I wanted to gives the guys a little variety, so we ran offshore to the rock piles and found a mixed bag. Numerous grouper, sea bass, grunts, porgys, mackerel and sheepshead filled out our afternoon catch, before we ran back inshore to find a last minute red fish. Back in the creeks, with a minimal high tide, we caught a couple under slot red fish; while Matt had the hot rod and picked up a beautiful 24" keeper to end the day. Thanks guys for the great time and enjoy all the variety of species for your fish fry... Capt. Dan
