Crystal River Variety

Florida Sportsman Member: anglerbros 7286 Everything was on live shrimp today, besides one 24″ gag on a pinfish. Sheepshead were caught on a live shrimp 6-12″ off the bottom and the snapper were caught mostly freelined. All in about 30ft of water out of Crystal River.

Florida Sportsman member: Northern There seems to be a lot of big blackfins around right now. Unfortunately, I’m losing too many boat side in the process of trying to get them in the boat. This one was 17.5lbs, but the two lost at boat side were bigger.

Florida Sportsman member: srokag44 Vision was marginal, but enough to shoot some snapper and lionfish. Had to fend off a big sandbar shark that circled us on the descent and showed back up on the ascent.

Guana Youth Hunt

Guana Youth Hunt Success

Florida Sportsman member: JaxQuack Saturday was a great time for those at Guana. Mother Nature made sure to let the kids know that she was in charge, as she graced them with winds out of the north, 20-22mph. In all, a handful of ducks were harvested, which included a crack-shot 15-year-old getting her limit of green-winged teal.

It’s Crappie Time

Florida Sportsman member: stringwray It’s time to crappie fish. It took a while to find some willing to chew, but when I finally found them they were chewing the hooks off. The fish wanted no part of the minnows, but were more then ready for some jig action.
