Crystal River 1/2 Day...

Written by
A very good 1/2 day Crystal River charter with Tyler, Tim and Seth and the trout bite was on.  Leaving out of Pete's Pier Marina, we pulled up to the bars again and using MirrOlure Lil' John's, the guys had their 15 fish limit. A few short trout were mixed in, but the majority were beautiful mid slot keepers, with the largest being almost 22". For a change of pace, we tried a couple sheepshead locations and found a few hefty sheepshead. The fish are still on location, but there is currently a heavy algae bloom occurring making bottom fishing very difficult.  We called it a day just afternoon and I thank you all for the fun time. Here's today's crew with their great catch... Capt. Dan

Early Arrival Macks...

Written by
It was day two today with the Faulk party and myself and Capt. Rick Spratt had a fun time with this group. I had Mark and Scott on board for the day and we did great jigging some trout in the morning and finishing the afternoon, with a dozen sheepshead. The trout were picky today and had to go to the gulp shrimp to get our bites, while live shrimp on a knocker rig was our tackle of choice for the sheepshead. Capt. Spratt found some early arrival Spanish Mackerel and free lining live shrimp was the ticket for the macks. It was a great couple days with you all and look forward to your future visits... Capt. Dan

A late afternoon 1/2 day trip with my good friend Capt. Mark Zorn and we fished the Faulk party, out of the Best Western on the Crystal River. I had Woody and Scott on board and targeting trout was our afternoon plan. We arrived at our destination, started jigging with MirrOlure Lil' Johns and caught some beautiful trout. We had nine keepers for the afternoon, released several under slot trout and then the big snook surprise. While we were catching our trout, a monster snook took the jig and the fight was on. It was close to a 15 minute battle and into the net was the biggest snook I've had on board to date. A couple quick pictures and we safely released her back into the water and watched her swim away. Capt. Z did great as well and he had eleven trout for his crew to make our afternoon trip a success. Thanks guys for the great time and enjoy tonight's fish being preparred at Oysters in Crystal River... Capt. Dan

Crystal River "Speck"tacular...

Written by
Mike from Texas experienced trout fishing at it finest, out of Crystal River today. We left the dock at 8am sharp and ran down the river, while hungry trout were awaiting us. Using MirroLure Lil' Johns in the glow and watermelon colors, we had our limit in short order. We had a couple mixed variety species as well, including pompano, bluefish and spanish mackerel - spring is on it's way. Our next stop was the offshore ledges is 17ft of water and we found some beautiful sheepshead. It took a little while for the sheepshead bite to get going, but when the tide turned, the sheepies turned on. For an extra bonus, a school of bonito cruised by and Mike hooked up and had a great battle with a poor mans tuna. Great weather, fatastic fishing; it coulnd't had been any better. Thank you for the great time and hope to see you soon... Capt. Dan
