First Ever Redfish

Crystal River redfish    One of the best parts of being a fishing guide is seeing someone catch their first fish, I think it makes us recall the way we felt when we first did the same. I met my clients today at the Plantation Adventure Center and headed west for a day of fun. Steve,Greg and John were looking to spend a day on the water in the sunshine and catching some fish. We started out on a large school of snook that would not cooperate with us, probably due to the school of porpoise working the bar the fish were holding on,so after a few drifts we headed for the trout. DOA Deadly combos were the ticket on the trout and the guys did a great job pulling them in. Once the tide got up high enough I went into the back country for some redfish action. this is John with his first redfish ever, I believe he may start doing a little more fishing in the future.
