Crystal River Hot Reds, Cold Trout..Written by Captain Dan
It was the classic red fishing set up this morning; you pull up to a point, cast out a shrimp and fish on! Mel, Royce and Bill were on board and beginning the day with a couple red fish stretching our lines, it was a great start to the day. We landed a couple and lost a few, but the bite was good surprising the little amount of tide we had. After an hour of red fishing, the outgoing tide was dumping fast, so we ran offshore and had some mixed bag action. The trout bite was not as good as we had hoped and it was actually quite slow throughout the day. We did put five nice keepers in the cooler and released an assortment of sea bass, grouper, lady fish, sharks etc... drifting the spotty bottom areas. I thank you guys for giving it your all and here's Mel with his beautiful Crystal River red fish... Capt. Dan
