Crystal River Report (past few weeks)

Is it spring yet?! Seems like every Thursday or so we get hit by another front. I'm over it.

Trout have just about pushed out of the river and onto the flats in 3' of water or so. Not too far off the islands yet though. The usual gulp shrimp/mirrodines/doa's have been productive. Reds have really picked up in the past couple weeks. Problem for me in my bay boat is having enough water to get to them. In my two trips yesterday I bet we landed 70+ reds. Only took 300 Shrimp  :D 

Water temp peeked into the low 70's yesterday. Shouldn't be long before everything fires off! May go try to chum up some spanny macks next week. Seen a few darting around and cutting jigs off lately.
