Kayak Fishing for Redfish in Crystal River, FL – Gary Rankel’s Report

A good day today.

Lots of big redfish in the Crystal River area this month doing their annual thing, most are beyond the reach of us yakers, but I was lucky to get a couple of stragglers.

    Nice job Gary. The time of year is right and we should get into the larger fish now. Besides we won’t cook ourselves out on the water all day. I was down there last week and the topwater trout bite was outstanding for as long as we cared to fish. Our area up here in the NE is already turning on nicely. My trouble is it’s hard to give up chasing after those crazy snook. Our main area has thousands of dollars of lures donated to the snook gods. I’m sure the fish are swimming around wearing them as bling.
