Oyster Bar Trout

Written by
We pulled up to the bars today, the oyster bars that is; just outside the mouth of the Crystal River to find some trout. I had the Mandigo family on board and these guys did beautifully. Using MirrOlure Lil' Johns on a 1/8th oz DOA cal jig head, it was steady trout action throughout the morning, until the tide starting ripping out and the trout bite was over. We totaled 18  keeper trout, changed gears and made a couple stops on the shallow rock piles. The sea bass bite was good, but short lived and quickly added a couple to the mix to finish out the day. I thank you guys for the fun time and I hope you enjoy all the fish... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Trolling Gags

Written by
I had a special request to target some shallow water grouper today and even though the seasons closed, we had some outstanding catch and release action. Jim was on board today out of Pete's Pier Marina and we were excited to troll up some gags. Calm seas, clear water, ideal water temperature and the gulf was to ourselves; it was shaping up to be the perfect day. We arrived at our first destination just after 8am and shortly after, we were catching, photographing and releasing several beautiful grouper. Using Rapala x-raps in the fire tiger and bunker colors were are baits of choice for the day. We fished from the 15ft depth range on out to 35ft of water and every single location produced keeper gags. Only a handful of under sized grouper were brought to the boat and the majority were keepers ranging from 23" to 32". I wish I could post all the great pictures from the day, but here's Jim with one of the larger grouper form today's charter. Thank you for the great time and look forward to seeing you again soon...

Good Weather-Great Fishing

Written by
Finally a break in the weather and we actually had sunshine today. The east winds were still quite gusty, but it was a beautiful day and the fish were in a very cooperative feeding mood. I did have a charter yesterday, but it was a tough one and all we could do is catch short trout, red fish and seabass. It was a fun day, but nothing to bring home for dinner. However, today's trout bite out of Crystal River was outstanding. I had Bobby and Ed on board and these gentlemen did great working jigs along the oyster bars and quickly caught their limit of trout, plus released several others. Using Mirrolure Lil' John's in the root beer color was today's top bait. Leaving the trout, we made our way to the rock piles and found the usual mixed bag of species for a fun fish catching afternoon. I thank you guys for the memorable day and enjoy the fresh fish...

Overcast Trout

Written by
This week began with a mild, sunny sky, then a mid-week cold front, and finished to windy, cloudy conditions. Bill and Len were on board today out of Crystal River, for a day of chasing down some trout. Running North, we jigged our way down the outer spoil islands and began catching some beautiful trout. The wind gradually picked up out of the NW, so we had to anchor on some locations and use a slow presentation. The gulf water temperature has dropped to 60 degrees and the trout wanted our jigs almost crawling on the bottom. The day started off pretty good, but when the bite quit; it quit. The afternoon was slow, but we always catch a few for dinner and I always enjoy fishing with you guys, Thanks as always for the fun time and I'll see you soon... Capt. Dan
