11/20 Crystal River tough one!
Left the dock about 8am, with a father/daughter day planned. I just wish the fish would have co-operated, I covered alot of ground trying to find the fish, and I just couldnt get anything steady in one area. I hit the bars (one time literally, costing me a prop, but I was prepared with the spare, no major damage, slow speed saves the day), the grass flats north of the channel, Gomez, "the humps", the spoil islands, a few rock piles in 5-8 feet of water, Mangrove and Shark Points, and the bars near the beach. I tried it all, popping corks w/DOA Shrimp (numerous colors) Lil' Johns (numerous colors), Gulp, mirrodines, catch 2000, spoons, you name it, I pulled it out of the box to try it!!!!! Four trout were big enough to keep, two undersized, a few ladyfish, my daughter caught a remora as well, she wanted to know if I (dad) could eat it (gotta love kids).......She did manage the biggest trout of the day, topping out at just over 20". The Fish sure are hard to find right now. But hey, it beat workin'!!!!!! No pics today, sorry.
