Crystal River Fishing Report, 12/21/14 from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Dec.22, 2014, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

Happy Holidays,  Citrus County anglers!  And I hope you all have a little extra time during the holiday, to spend some time on the water. The recent cold front’s play a big role on the what, where and when to plan your fishing trip, so always check the marine forecast; especially this time of year. Here’s an update on what has been happening recently in the fishing world.

Our spring fed rivers have been producing a variety of species. Mangrove snapper, trout, red fish, snook, black drum, etc.  have been keeping many rods bent recently. Live shrimp on a 1/8th oz jig head is all that’s needed for success, but bring plenty; the rocky bottom terrain will claim is share of tackle. Also, soft plastic jigs, such as the DOA golden bream colored jerk baits, along the channel drop offs have been working well on the river trout and red fish.

Red fishing has been excellent in the back country from Yankeetown to Chassahowitzka, and especially the sight fishing. There’s has been numerous little “rat” reds on the points, but that’s typical for this time of year. Don’t let the little guys discourage you though; there are some hefty ones mixed in too. The winter tides can make it challenging to sometimes get in the creeks, but if a shallow draft skiff or john boat is available; the action has been great. From fly fishing, weed less soft plastics and shrimp under a cork; there’s a technique for everyone wanting to tackle red fish.

The trout bite outside the rivers has picked up some, but still not as great as it could be for this time of year. The fish are definitely isolated, but when you find them, there has been several in that area. Most of the trout success though, has been on shallow rock flats with stands of kelp grass, deeper holes in the creeks and drop off’s off the rock bars. On the colder days, the bite is definitely much better in the afternoon with the water a degree or two warmer; especially on an outgoing tide.

On the offshore scene, grouper season is unfortunately closed for those wanting a grouper dinner, but there are some other choices for the offshore fans. Sheepshead have begun their annual winter spawning migration over the various hard bottom structures off the coast. A live shrimp on a knocker rig and your standard inshore light tackle rod is all that’s needed to catch some of these tasty, hard fighting fish. Also, I’ve been recently catching some really large black sea bass and some bonus hog fish, while targeting the Sheepshead. Sea bass are some of the best table fair around and will aggressively take just about any offering when you find them. Don’t forget your camera, you’ll definitely be catching and releasing some fine grouper while targeting the other species. It’s always a fun challenge to land a keeper sized gag on light tackle, but they do win most of the time. Good Fishing!

Crystal River Fishing Report, Capt. Dan Clymer, 10/30/13

by on Oct.29, 2013, under Ozello to Crystal River

A mixed report from the inshore to the offshore. I began this past week targeting “my favorite”, shallow water grouper. I did a combination of casting plugs on the shallow rocks and trolling Rapala x-rap 20’s on the ledges. We caught a limit of keeper gags in a little as 5ft of water and I actually used my power pole to hold us off the rocks. The deeper ledges were holding keeper gags as well and the Hot Head colored Rapala x-rap was the plug. The floating grass situation is much better and we are in the home stretch for prime grouper time. Inshore: the trout action was excellent before the recent front, but was a bit challenging the last few days. The gulf water has dropped some and I suspect this week they will be happy again. The snook are finding their way towards the springs and we caught a couple small ones this week, but I’ve heard good news that’s there’s some real large ones in Kings Bay as well. My final trip of the week was going sight fishing for red fish, way in the back country of Ozello. I took my sliver king as far east as I could and we poled the mangrove shorelines and creeks. We went 3 for 6 on red fish that we saw and DOA jerk baits were the ticket. The water has finally cleared and this style of fishing will only improve throughout the next couple of months… Good Fishing…

Crystal River Fishing Report, 10/7/13, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Oct.07, 2013, under Ozello to Crystal River

A good week of both inshore and offshore trips.The hard “yellow” bottom areas with kelp grass have been holding the trout. Bourbon colored MirroLure Lil’ Johns and DOA fire tiger shrimp under DOA deadly combo corks have worked well. There’s still good trout action off the Homosassa bird rack. You have to sort though several shorts to find keepers sized trout, but they are there. The grouper are still cooperating nicely on the shallow ledges in the 15ft range. The floating grass continues to make trolling a pain, so have the live well full of pin fish so your days not wasted. Be ready, there’s some real nice gags inshore, and we had our share of break offs recently. For a fun drag scream, the bonito are running the intake canal area. Watch for them harassing bait fish, and send a small silver spoon into the frenzy. I highly suggest bending down the barbs, for an easy release and a less bloody mess. Good fishing…

Crystal River Fishing Report, 9/3/12, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Sep.03, 2012, under Ozello to Crystal River

With a couple days back on the water after another fantastic fly fishing trip from Wyoming, the fishing/scalloping back home is great. It truly has been a banner year for our Citrus County scallop season, and being this late in the season; it appears there’s no slowing down. The grass flats just South of Gomez Rks off Crystal River continues to produce as well as the flats just West of St. Martins Keys. The size of the scallops has been very impressive and the meat inside has coincided with the larger size as well. Get them while you can with only a couple weeks left.
On the fishing side, I had great grouper trip from the shallower 17ft to 30ft range, despite the full moon which usually makes the grouper bite difficult. Spending the time to catch good quality palm sized pin fish will definitely put the odds in you favor. I fished both high profile rocks and under cut ledges and the two types of structures produced equally as well. After a good catch of gags bottom fishing, we spent a little time trolling and picked up a couple on plugs. These have been the first grouper of our early approaching fall season I have caught trolling and even a surprise Goliath grouper grabbed a plug. The recent winds and storm activity has helped with the floating grass situation and allowed trolling for most areas I fished particularity to the North. The trolling will continue to improve in the coming weeks. On the inshore scene, the red fishing has picked up considerably. The outer keys and spoil islands have been the hot spots and have a variety of baits. One day it’s live pin fish and the next it’s cut mullet or lady fish, so leave the dock prepared. One surprise catch this week I’d like to mention is my good friend and fellow Captain Clay Sheidler, lucked upon a 7lb bone fish using live shrimp while red fishing out of Crystal River. This is truly a rare catch and it just proves you just never know….

Crystal River Fishing Report, 4/22/12, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Apr.22, 2012, under Ozello to Crystal River

Hello Homosassa and Crystal River anglers, if you’ve been on the water lately, you know the fishing has been great. There are still a lot of opportunities to choose from for both inshore and offshore anglers. For the offshore kind, the cobia have really made a strong early appearance and can be found on wrecks, high profile rocks and channel markers. I recently stopped on a wreck to the North of Crystal River and was welcomed to a large school of cobia circling the surface. You could tell they were in a feeding mood and once the bait hit the surface, the race was on. We repeated the process six times and every fish hooked, was very aggressive for a free lined live palm-sized pin fish. I’ve talked to some grouper anglers that have been making their way to the red grouper grounds and have had very good success at the 60ft range. The usual technique of starting the bite once anchored with frozen sardines and thread fin herring, then switching to live baits has rewarded in some hefty red grouper catches. Remember the gag grouper are still on lock-down, so bring a camera to take a picture on the numerous gags you will likely encounter.

I’ve had some great inshore charters over the past few weeks. Trout catches have been excellent from the oysters bars to the 5ft spotty bottom areas off Homosassa. It’s been tough to beat a DOA deadly combo cork, rigged with a MirrOlure Lil’ John in the root beer color. The red fishing has been a little hit and miss, but if you put your time in jumping point to point, you’ll find some fish. Free lined live shrimp continues to out perform the cut baits, but as the water continues to warm, this will soon change. Spoons are still a good choice in the back country for red fish, especially if the water is a little off color, but be prepared to cover some water. Also, some early arrival tarpon have been around and we were lucky enough to put two in the air on Tuesday, for a heat thrilling experience. Good Fishing…

Capt. Dan Clymer’s Crystal River Fishing Report, March 12, 2012

by on Mar.12, 2012, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

We have had several different angling options for us the last week and a half out of Crystal River/Homosassa and spring is definitely here. I spent several charters drifting my favorite area; the ever reliable bombing range, and the 5th to 8ft depth range granted us a variety of species. Schools of various bait fish, including ballyhoo, could be seen being harassed by mackerel and blue fish through out the area. Good catches of trout, Spanish mackerel, blue fish and pompano came on a combination of D.O.A. deadly combo rigs and also using a simple D.O.A. glow cal shad tail or MirrOlure Lil’ John, on a 1/8th oz jig head. A big surprise was seeing a couple early arrival bull sharks while running in my tower and as luck would have it, actually hooking into one, on one of our light tackle rigs while reeling in a trout. On the windy days, which we had several of, the bars in Crystal bay produced high numbers of trout. We had to weed through numerous shorts to produce keepers, but it’s a great place for good action and can save the day when the conditions are tough. Larger trout will fill this area in the coming weeks and it’s tough to beat a jig and cork rig for success. Full moon tides allowed us to red fish in the mid day to early afternoon times this week. Free lining live shrimp in with the mullet schools produced some quality slot fish, as well as several that were under the slot.  There’s so much going on, so pick your favorite spring time area and good luck…

February 4, 2012 Fishing Report, Crystal River, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Feb.06, 2012, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

A taste of early spring! This week brought a new variety of species including some spring arrivals, such as Spanish mackerel, bluefish and bonito. I encountered these species primarily while sheepshead fishing over the deeper ledges in the 17ft range. While anchored up, the mackerel would follow the shrimp on bait checks on the knocker rig or jig head; so we started free lining live shrimp on a long shank #2 hook and fish on.The sheepshead bite is still quite good, but the dreaded algae bloom is taking place and it’s covering the baits, along with the structure the sheepshead have been located on. Not really sure what this is going to do… Trout fishing has improved as well and the gulf water temperature has been hovering around the 67 degree mark. MirrOLure Lil’ Johns, DOA cal shad tails and gulp shrimp, have all been producing throughout the week on a 1/8th oz jig head. Try targeting hard bottom areas and keep in mind trout prefer hard structures over grass this time of year. Rock flats, oyster bars and near shore rock piles are all good choices… Good Fishing

Crystal River/Homosassa Fishing Report, 1/10/12, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Jan.11, 2012, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

Hello Crystal River/Homosassa anglers, I don’t have a big change in the fishing report this week, but here’s what I experienced the past week. My hot bite continues to be the very cooperative sheepshead. With a major drop in the water temperature to 52 degrees on Thursday, the sheepies didn’t show any signs of lock jaw. Targeting various structures on out to 20ft of water all produced some quality sheepshead . On Friday, I made a run south of Homosassa to one of my favorite grouper locations and it was the mother-load of sheepshead. We caught and released over 20 keeper sheepshead on one stop, along with a couple beautiful keeper sized gag grouper on light tackle. I’ve been limiting my charters to 15 keeper sheepshead to keep the stocks healthy; remember these fish are congregating for spawning purposes. A simple 1/8thoz Hank Brown jig head and a live shrimp continues to be the ticket for constant hook ups… Good Fishing…

Homosassa/Crystal River Fishing Report, 1/1/12, from Capt. Dan Clymer

by on Jan.01, 2012, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

Happy New Year Nature Coast anglers and here’s the latest from the Homosassa and Crystal River area. Over the last two weeks I’ve spent several days fishing out of both locations and have had great success both deep in the backcountry and offshore to the 20ft depth range. Continuing our luck with a mild winter, has kept the fishing exceptional compared to the last two years, when we had to endure frigid cold temperatures (I have a feeling the weathers going to change though).

I’ll start with the inshore flavors and work my way offshore. The river continues to produce some steady action as long as you don’t mind the crowds of manatee onlookers and boat traffic. Mangrove snapper, red fish, trout, lady fish and snook are the main species that have called the rivers home this time of year. Slowly presented jigs and free lined live shrimp continue to be the most successful methods for constant hook ups.

On a couple days when the tide allowed, I had some great success sight fishing redfish deep in the backcountry of Ozello. Using MirrOlure Lil’ Johns on a light 1/16thoz DOA cal jig head, actually out fished live shrimp and the numbers of fish were quite impressive. If we have an approaching front, west wind and an incoming tide, these are prime winter time conditions to go red fishing. To the south, working deeper holes in the Little Homosassa area, we caught some beautiful trout, but the fish specifically wanted a free lined live shrimp. There is an abundance of under slot trout in these locations as well, please take care while handling them to keep our future stock healthy.

For my personal favorite report, the fantastic black sea bass, sheepshead, large grunts, grouper and other mixed variety of species, on the hard bottom areas; is making for some steady action and tasty rewards for those looking for a meal. Structures ranging from 3ft of water on out to 20ft, have produced all the mentioned above species, along with some bonus pompano and Spanish mackerel. The large breeder sized Sheepshead are making their presence known more and more, and some fish I’ve recently caught are just under the 10lb mark. Live shrimp on a 1/8th oz Hank Brown jig head has been my staple go to bait for the offshore locations. Good Fishing…

Crystal River Fishing Report from Captain Dan Clymer, December 10, 2011

by on Dec.10, 2011, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

What a week in the weather! We experienced a total shift in conditions ranging from a couple warm sunny 80 degree days, to rain, then a gusty winter cold front and finishing, with overcast windy skies. The good part about the weather this week is when the weather was good, the fishing was great.

The majority of my charters this week consisted of some outstanding trout action on the outer spoil islands and more variety of species than I could count on the shallow hard bottom areas from 10ft to 15ft off Homosassa and Crystal River. For targeting the trout, I always prefer the incoming tide for the mentioned above area, but on two different occasions, the outgoing was the ticket. I attribute this to possibly the warmer shallower water running out and changing the water temperature a degree or two, to get the bite going. This time of year the water temperature dictates what species and what areas we fish and using the tide and time of day to your advantage, can help you have a more successful trip. The best producing jigs for the trout this week were the DOA glow cal shad tails, Mirrolure Lil’ John’s in the rootbeer color and for the days after the cold front; the ever reliable new penny gulp helped us catch those finicky trout.

Just a little ways offshore, brought the absolute best black sea bass fishing I’ve experienced in crystal clear water. On ever piece of structure we fished including ledges, rock piles, wrecks and live bottom areas; the sea bass were there. This is the time of year they congregate to spawn and these fish become extremely aggressive. It was quite impressive for my clients and I to hook our fish and have several followers come to the boat, and make multiple hook ups quite easy. We actually caught several on a bare jig head and a few actually jumped out of the water for the bait “honest”… Using a live shrimp on a 1/8th oz Hank Brown jig head was the preferred bait of choice, but a few of the larger sea bass were caught on artificial jigs. The quality of size was impressive as well, with a few sea bass just falling short of the 15” mark.

The other mixed bag of species we caught also included some more early arrival Sheepshead, numerous large grunts, Spanish mackerel, porgies, gag grouper (some keepers, that were safely released) and trigger fish. The gulf water temperature is hovering around the 62 degree mark and with the cooler waters, the clarity improves considerably. Take advantage of the next couple days of good weather, go scouting, and locate some new offshore areas… Good Fishing
