Crystal River Fishing Report Mid June – Captain Leon Hampton

We are having a good snook and redfish bite right now around the mangroves on a incoming and out going tide. We are using cut bait, artificial and live bait. On the artificial we are using a 5.5 D.O.A jerk bait, lil Jons and white gulps under a popping cork. On live bait we are using live shrimp, live pinfish and cut bait like pinfish, ladyfish and mullet. The trout bite are picking back up. We are catching some in the mangroves while fishing for redfish and we are catching them in 4 to 5 feet of water out front of the mangrove islands on the spotty bottom.
