Crystal River fishing charter testimonials, charter


Hi Kelly,
 Thanks again for taking me and the wife out fishing (catching is more like it) yesterday.  We had a great time!  While the fishing was good, having a guide with local knowledge of the area was just as important to us.  We really appreciate you telling us about the history of the gulf & rivers and the local people.  When we come back we will definitely call you again for another trip.

Hey Captain Kelly,
I wanted to let you know that Jack and I had a blast with you yesterday. You're a really good captain and we will definitely be calling you again to go fishing. The boat was really sweet. However, I'm going to contact Robb
because I have a few more questions for him. I would really like to check out a boat that has a higher horsepower on it. I hope the crank bait I gave you will help you win some tournaments. It's probably one of the best redfish baits I've ever used and I hope it works good for you too. I'll be in touch.

Capt. Kelly:

Thanks for taking Laura, Donnie and me on our fishing trip this past Friday. We had a great time and I have forwarded to you a couple of pictures as promised. I have kept your business card for future use and I will certainly recommend you to others in the future. Best regards,

Nicky and I had a great time fishing and scalloping with you. Thanks for everything.

Hope the fishin's been good lately.


In desperate need for some "fishing therapy" saved up my $ and booked a trip with Capt Kelly. I had my son come home from college for the weekend in hopes of turning him on to his first Red. It's kind like your first kiss. Once you've hooked up to a red, you know you just gotta have more.

We left out of Kelly's place at 9:00 and headed "south" I have no idea where we were, the mangrove islands all look the same. Pulled up in a spot and saw signs of a school, Joel threw a chunk of mullet and I have a live pinfish. Wind was blowing pretty good out of the south. Threw a bad cast right in the middle of the pack and ran them off  Moved to another spot and in minutes started workin 'em. 
Joel got a hook up, I wish you could have seen the look on his face. While that was going on, I got a hook up as well.  Before the day was over we had 3 double hook ups, a total of 25 reds on the day. Most were slot sized, all were loads of fun. Capt Kelly was great to work with, I will be booking with him again!

Capt. Kelly,
Thanks again for such a wonderful day! Jackson said it was the best ever! We are definately looking forward to going again.


Had an absolutely great time today. Joe, Brian and myself talked about the day the entire ride back to Ocala.

When I got home my daughter, Lindsey, immediately grabbed my camera to look at all the fish you put us on. She was very jealous that she couldn't be out there today.

I posted the photos we took and have spoken with family and friends about the great trip today.

Thank you again for a great day!


Capt. Kelly,
Thanks for the fun fishing trip, I hope I can fish with you again next year. These pictures are from JR Hall & Jimmy Cat-Fish Hunter.

  Thanks again for a great day. Tuesday night at the conference we shot a pic of Glenn and his fish on the big screen. He got a kick out of that.

Capt. Kelly,
Had a great time and it was a pleasure meeting you. Can't wait till our next trip! Won't set the hook, close bail by hand,


My name is Allen Adair, I was on a trip with you the first weekend in April with the group  from E&E out of Albany, GA. I enjoyed the trip immensely and would like to bring my son and father in-law down for a fishing trip on the Sat May 9 2009 if  available. Is this Sat available?
  Thank you, Allen Adair
