Another Perfect Day with Captain Nick

April 28, 2009

ANOTHER PERFECT DAY A Yankee Town, Florida and Crystal River Florida Fishing Report From Gulf Coast Fishing Guide Captain Nick Caught a break in the wind Friday, 4/24, and ran offshore about 20 miles west of Yankeetown to fish for Grouper/Cobia. Hadn’t been to this particular spot in about 2 months, and apparently neither had anyone else! Caught about a dozen Gags ranging from 5 to 10 lbs in the first hour of fishing! Hadn’t spotted a Cobia yet, but was running low on bait and decided to move off our spot just long enough to regroup and resupply the live […]

Living Rite On The Ocklawaha

Ocklawaha Fishing Report From Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick LIVIN RITE After the day we had fishing on the Ocklawaha River recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that I must be either “Livin Rite” or just lucky.  Maybe both.   On Tuesday, 4/21, I talked two of my buddies, Eric and Alan, into taking a day off of work, and joining me for a couple of hours of fishing on the Ocklawaha river near Ocala.  I didn’t have to twist their arms very hard.   After picking up a couple dozen wild shiners, we were on our way to a […]

Need More Water

Ocklawaha Fishing Report From Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick MORE OR LESS Just north of Ocala/Gainesville, several rivers have flooded while drought conditions south of us have left the Ocklawaha River low.   Unfortunately, when these conditions exist, it makes it tough for the fisherman, and even tougher for the fish. Recently most of the Bass being caught have been found up as far north as the Rodman Reservoir.   Typically this time of year we have no trouble catching our limit of Largemouths just about anywhere you want to fish on the Ocklawaha River, but lowering water tables have […]

Anticipation

Yankee Town, Florida and Crystal?River Florida Fishing Report From Gulf Coast Fishing Guide Captain Nick ANTICIPATION Although the recent winds have all but shut down the saltwater fishing around the Big Bend, we did manage to get out on Friday, 4/17. Yes, it was blustery, but we took the airboat and confined our fishing to the shallow, protected waters around “Eleven Prong”, just south of the Waccassasa Bay Channel entrance. Not much luck with the Redfish, but there was a fair amount of baitfish in the area. Hopefully the winds will subside soon, and we’ll be getting back to the […]
