P6190268The song remains the same and another outstanding charter out of Crystal River. I met Rick, Mark and Bernie at Pete's Pier and chasing trout was the name of the game. With the opening of scallop season today, I knew it was going to be a crazy day on the water. I ran out the back creeks to avoid the crowds, and soon we were offshore catching trout. We threw a combination of DOA shrimp and CAL jigs to put them in the boat. We dodged all the rain storms and it was another great day on the water. Thanks guys for the great time and happy birthday Rick. Here is today's haul of 14 keeper trout... Capt. Dan
P6180258I had Lauren and Matt on board again today, out of Crystal River for another great day on the water. I promised Matt some shots at fish with the fly rod this morning and I delivered. First we hit a spot in the river where the tarpon were rolling all over, but once again the tarpon just didn't want to cooperate. It was exciting seeing the fish, but no hook ups. The tide was running out fast and wanted a chance to get a red on the fly, before we lost to much water. So out the salt river we were, and back to Ozello, and in no time we were sight fishing some red fish. The first school of fish spooked, but we threw in the next little creek and it was fish on. A #8 bead head woolly bugger did the trick. Lauren was next, an immediately hooked up with a fresh Pete's Pier live shrimp. We saw several others, but they refused the shrimp and the fly. It was a great morning and glad to beat the T-Storms in. Look forward to seeing you both again and here is Matt's red fish on the fly.. Capt. Dan

Big Crystal River Trout June 17th 2010

Written by
P6170254It was a little bit of a slow day today out of Crystal River, but we stuck to it and found some big gator trout. I met Lauren and Matt at Pete's Pier, and we ran to the deeper flats where the bite has been fantastic. We caught numerous shorts and a mixed bag of other species, but the keepers were just not biting on the long outgoing tide. Just after noon the tide finally started coming in and the combination with the west wind and tide turned the trout on. We had three in the 20" class and one hefty trout at 23". We kept seven for dinner and the holographic root beer DOA shrimp did it again for us. Thanks for the fun time and here is Lauren with her hefty gator trout... Capt. Dan
