experienced or newby Captn Sean Walker will give you the best trip
I took a last minute road trip with one of my daughters and ended up in Crystal River. We were supposed to travel to different places but the people in Crystal River were so nice we decided to extend our stay if I could find a charter on the 23rd hour. I left my number with someone and sure enough a last minute opening with Captn. Walker was a perfect ending to our vacation. I've fished with alot of people in different places. Fisherman or newby Captn Walker has lots to offer. Limited to the tides we started the day catching trout. I had my heart set on redfish so Captn Walker time himself perfectly to take us in this sweet spot. First of all I have a flats boat that goes in pretty shallow water or I used to think it did until now. Captn Walker has a sick set up boat that would probably go down the street after a 2 in rain. This fishing spot was just starting to get water coming in. We could see the reds coming in as we starting to fish. My 12 year old daughter caught the first bracket ( keeper ) fish. Probably the heaviest acceptable bracket redfish I've ever seen. We caught all types of fish had amazing conversations. Finally on the way out I didn't this day could be better between the scenery the fishing the guides knowledge and sure enough we just happen to see a bunch of manatees heading out to sea. They took a liking to the jet blower behind the boat. Captn Walker let us enjoy curiosity and playfulness of the amazing animals. I don't know too many people that will give kids that type of memory. I 've made a friend to come fish or hunt with in the future. If you are still reading you are looking for the best for your trip. I highly recommend Salt river Outfitters and Captn. Sean Walker. Thank you for the memories. I'll be back to fish and hunt soon.
