    4/29 Crystal River - Ozello

    I finally got back on the water after 2 weeks. I end up getting a chance to fish with my old friends Dennis and Mike. We havenít fished together since Christmas because our work schedules do not match but he took off today to fish with me.

    That being said, we hit the water at 7:30 and the weather was absolutely great. We run out the Salt River after stopping for bait and as soon as we get out of the no wake zone and the low oil warning starts buzzing on Dennisí boat. No big deal, I called Twin Rivers Marina and Tommy says he has some 4 stroke oil on the shelf. We head straight back to get some oil and off we go again but by this time the tide is almost at its peak. We only have about 90 minutes to get some reds before going offshore.

    First bait in the water and Iím hooked up



    We get that one off and the second bait in the water, hooked up again.



    Dennis gets a nice one soon after mine.



    Right after the tide changes, Dennis hooks up again.



    With 4 reds in the box we decide its time to head offshore to see if we could find some cobia. We must have hit 10 to 15 inshore rock piles with no sign of the cobia. We had a half dozen pinfish in the live well that we didnít want to go to waste so we decide to do some grouper fishing. Mike drops a Gulp down on a rock pile and hooks up with a little gag grouper in 7 feet of water.



    Another great day spent fishing with friends in the Big Bend.

    That's just not right--Dennis laying on the deck with a flopping redfish. Get him a shark--a big one!! Nice job on the reds. Keep looking for those cobia-they're bound to be around.

    The best days are the ones where you head out at a leisurely hour, not really caring too much if you catch anything. Those days are even better when you actually catch a bunch of fish.
