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!

Shrimp Landing Restaurant Opens in Inglis/Yankeetown

by on Mar.24, 2013, under Yankeetown and Waccasassa

If you’re traveling north on US19/98 and just crossing the ‘border’ into Levy County and “Natural North Florida”, the first town you’ll hit is Inglis.  Just north of the Withlacoochee River and described by many as the “gateway to Yankeetown”, Inglis is your last chance for a square meal before you get to Chiefland, some 40 miles up the road.  In the past, and during its heyday, Inglis had a few “meat and three” restaurants, namely the Port Inglis Restaurant and Gobblers.  Alas, both have closed, as is the case with the more upscale eatery, December’s*.  Nevertheless, the old “PI” has been reborn as the Shrimp Landing Restaurant, and is a good place to “fill up” in anticipation of your trip north (or to fish at Yankeetown, Waccasassa, Cedar Key or Lake Rousseau)

Don’t think that Shrimp Landing only serves shrimp.  Of course, they’re on the menu in several variations.  You’ll also find fish, salads, burgers and daily specials.  Expect big servings and hearty meals here-at reasonable prices.  They’re open 7 days a week from 5AM until 9PM, making Shrimp Landing a good choice for a pre-fishing trip breakfast or post-fishing trip lunch or dinner.

*The old December’s restaurant has been recently re-opened, but I’ve not had a chance to visit it.  Reviews from friends have been good, and I’m looking forward to a meal there soon.  Expect a review, too!

Week Four, Steinhatchee Scallop Season, 2012

by on Jul.22, 2012, under Steinhatchee

Week Four of the 2012 bay scallop harvest got off to a slow start with lots of thunderstorms and rain.  Luckily, the worst days were Monday through Thursday, and by Friday (July 20), skies were clearing and chances of storms had diminished.  That’s not to say that folks weren’t watching the weather closely, as “your 30-percent chance of rain” can always sneak up in the form of a violent storm, with lots of wind, rain, lightning and even hail!  And with the bulk of the scallops being taken in the Pepperfish Keys area, riding home the ten or so miles can be arduous is it’s storming.

There's great scalloping just north of the Pepperfish Keys channel, south of Steinhatchee

It seems that the continuing runoff from Tropical Storm Debby still has the waters to the north of the Steinhatchee River muddied up or stained, making scalloping difficult.  I’d bet that there are plenty of scallops in the deeper waters near Nine Mile Bank, but they may be hard to see, and deep.  At Pepperfish, it’s waist-deep on low tide, making the exercise easy and fun.  In general, the scallops are still coming to the cleaning table at the Sea Hag Marina by the buckets-full, and the meat (adductor muscles) is big this year, with 2 gallon limits producing just over a pound of clean scallops.

Another factor that can make the ride south difficult is the huge influx of floating sea grass.  This is caused by the natural shedding of old growth and accelerated by the persistent westerly breezes along the Big Bend.  There’s no danger in running through the grass, but be sure to check you water pressure gauge frequently to be sure your cooling water intakes are not clogged.  Another method is to watch the “pee hole” of your outboard.  If the stream is weak, your motor’s likely clogging up.  Many outboard motors now come with an alarm system that sounds upon overheating, and then slow the engine speed down automatically.  If you do clog up, DO NOT STOP YOUR MOTOR.  All that will do is seize a piston to the cylinder wall (not a good thing!).  Shift gears from forward to reverse, and keep the revolutions (RPMs) up.  Higher revs mean that you’re pumping more cool water into your engine’s water jacket.  Usually a minute or so will clear the intakes and you’ll be on your way.

I can’t stress enough the need for any boater to have some sort of assistance “insurance” in the form of either Sea Tow or Tow Boat US membership.  Getting a tow home can be expensive.  At Carrabelle, Steinhatchee and Horseshoe Beach, I recommend Sea Tow.  At Yankeetown (Levy and Citrus County) Capt. Matt Fleming of Tow Boat US is always on call.

Sea Tow/Horseshoe Beach now has a presence at the Sea Hag Marina in Steinhatchee.

Capt. Matt Fleming of Tow Boat/Yankeetown is waiting to assist!

Yankeetown Fishing Report From Capt Rick Muldrow, 4/9/12

by on Apr.09, 2012, under Uncategorized

This week the trout are still very good and had very good catches. Mackeral along with sharks and small cobia are starting to show up.  Reds have been good when tides have been right.  Cork and jig with plastics or corks along with casting plastics are working well.  I’ve been north up to Waccassa mainly on the flats.  Of course inside for reds, bars, points, etc.   Have seen a few tarpon on the flats.

Eat at Ike’s Old Florida Kitchen at the Izaak Walton Lodge in Yankeetown

by on Feb.02, 2012, under Yankeetown and Waccasassa

Mitch and Lorraine Simmons have recently opened up a restaurant in the long-closed Izaak Walton Lodge in Yankeetown.  The menu looks great, and I’m sure the food’s as good as in their other restaurant, Neon Leon’s Zydeco Steakhouse in Homosassa.  It’s been a long while since there was anything of note to eat in Yankeetown and lots of good positive reviews are coming in.  Give it a try the next time you’re looking for a nice lunch or dinner.

Ike’s Old Florida Kitchen at Izaak Walton Lodge
352-447-4899
Open Wednesday through Sunday 11am to 9pm

First built in 1924 by A.F. Knotts, the lodge hosted many of his wealthy northern friends, and even a president or two. These visits by “Yankees” led to the tongue-in-cheek reference to Yankeetown, a name later adopted formally. Other celebrities to frequent the lodge included the legendary Ted Williams who retired to the area and came often to enjoy the lodge’s famous pan-fried grouper – an item still on the menu.
