Tony and Dean were on board today for a full day out of Crystal River and these anglers caught some beautiful gator trout. Leaving from Pete's Pier Marina at 8am to rain showers, we put on the rain gear and started the day jigging trout. Using MirrOlure Lil' Johns, the guys caught some hefty trout, with the largest touching 25". The trout bite was really on for the last of the outgoing tide and then we switched gears, anchored up on some ledges and found a couple late season sheepshead. Live shrimp on a knocker rig produced for the sheepshead and a mixed catch of grouper, porgys, grunts and sheepshead filled out the mid afternoon. We made a quick stop in the creeks on the way in for a red fish and Tony caught a nice keeper to end the day. Thanks guys for the outstanding trip and look forward to seeing you next time your in town... Capt. Dan

Windy, Windy Reds...

Written by
Yesterday was about as picture perfect of a day as one could hope for and today, gusty SW winds to 20 mph. Malcom and Brian were on board and we braved the elements and found some red fish deep in the back country of Ozello. With the tide rushing in and the added wind giving it some momentum, we had plenty of high water and the red fish bit very well. Keeping it simple and just free lining live shrimp around the rocky points, the guys did great and they had their dinner covered. It was definitely a challenging day with the conditions and I thank you all for toughing it out... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Double Limit...

Written by
Bill and Karen experienced fishing about as good as it gets inshore Crystal River today and the conditions couldn't have been any better. Leaving from Pete's Pier Marina at 9am to catch the mid morning tide, we began using MirrOlure Lil' Johns and gulp shrimp on the outer bars. The trout were schooled up tight and it was two and three on at a time, on several occasions and my crew had their limit quickly. We caught and released several other trout while we waited for the tide to get right for red fishing. Just after noon, we hit the creeks, staked out in a rocky cove and boated 9 beautiful back country red fish. Free lined live shrimp was what the red fish ordered and Karen caught and released the big one measuring almost 28". A very memorable day on the water and I thank you both very much for the great time. Here's Bill and Karren with their fantastic catch... Capt. Dan

Drums, Sheeps and Macks...

Written by
An interesting variety today out of Crystal River and even though the gulf water clarity is quite dirty, the fish cooperated nicely. Robert and Peggy were on board from Texas and they caught some beautiful Spanish mackerel, sheepshead, grunts, red fish and a hefty black drum. The Spanish mackerel and sheepshead bite was fair due to the water conditions, but we had steady action and live shrimp was the bait of choice. We picked up the big black drum while targeting the macks and it was a bonus, plus, a welcomed surprise. Just afternoon with the tide running in hard, we hit the creeks and landed a couple back country red fish. Robert had the big one reaching the 26" mark. I thank you all for the great time and look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Florida... Capt. Dan
