The Catch
Spotted Seatrout

Wow! Awesome trip! Only a four hour trip but we limited out on scallops in less than an hour! We started the day chasing redfish in clear shallow water… Caught three reds one for the box off a few places I like to fish in the morning. Now it was time for trout!  I took my clients on a short ride to 3 to 5 feet of water on a stretch of my favorite patchy flats and put them to work.. Within short order we all had fish in the box quickly working on our limit. I suggested only keeping the bigger fish and going to topwater artificials for the bigger bites….. That was the trick! The next hour was a furious spectacle of catching and releasing well over 60 trout some of wich we released along with the fish of the day of 26”!  This kind of fishing should continue through the rest of late summer on into early fall here in the Crystal River area.
