We went scalloping (not fishing). Come prepared for a strong swim. You may have to swim against the tide, chase fleeing shellfish, etc. If you catch a few and then don't see any for a while, don't get discouraged. Keep it up. Don't be affraid to try something new, but at the same time don't totally give up what brought you success to begin with.

The Crystal River can be really shallow, so make sure you're out with an experienced captain. Either use SPF 50 sunscreen or wear long shirt/pants. The sun is no joke. Even with a 50, one of us got really burned. Drink water!! When we were out, we had a descent breeze, but it's still really warm. Have fun and enjoy!!

Water is nice and warm in the summer. Keep up the sunscreen and watch the weather because it can change in an hour.

GET IN SHAPE!! Although we went out in the gulf not the river. River could be easier? But easy and convenient from Ocala!

Book a trip with a pro and let someone else do all the work and worry and you'll catch fish and have an awesome day

It is a beautiful, natural, rural area. Great fishery, things heat up in the warmer monthes.. April is stormy and unpredictable.
