Book with Captain Bryan! Dress warm in the morning and a bring a light rain jacket--you will get wet from sea spray. The waters can be choppy on the boat ride to fishing site. But it is worth it to find the fish!

We went for Scallops. They were a good size and plentiful enough to keep us busy.

Yes, but be careful of the oyster bars if running your own boat. They will take out a prop or lower unit in a heart beat.

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

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!!

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

Pete's Pier is a great place to launch from and Hampton Inn and Plantation On Crystal River are very close by. Pete's charges $5.00 to park on their lot, but that is covered if you book through FishingBooker.
