Morning Fishing in Crystal River

This morning we had to weed through the big boys to find them some keepers! Dina, Annemarie, and Tyler managed to get it done and had a blast doing it! Well done! Annemarie also landed some Trout but they weren't quite big enough for them to keep. Also released others bonus fish too! It was a busy bite this morning. Good times and tight lines with Plantation crew!

A Windy Day Trip in Florida

This morning started out a little tough with not much water, the wind was blowing and it was a bit chilly for us Florida peeps but once the sun came out and the tide starting moving good, John showed his buddies up! They released over 20 reds, and then got their limit! John also caught a nice sheepshead and black drum to add to their bag of dinner. Enjoyed it with these gentlemen!
