Crystal River 6-13 Trout and the other snapper

Love fishing during the week. Only a few vehicles int he parking lot a fort island trail park boat ramp. We started at the spoil banks and landed six trout all between 18-20 inches and a nice 12 inch mangrove. All were caught on live shrimp on jig heads on the south side of the spoil banks. After about a half hour the trout bite shut down so we started looking for bigger bait. Found a nice weedling with sardines all over it we loaded the livewell and headed a few miles out. Caught nothing but short gags and grunt. Seas were very nice and there was no wind which made for a smooth ride but unbearably hot when not moving. Called it a day around 3pm and came home with some meat for the kids.
