The wrecks, springs, and rock piles near the mouth of the Crystal River are full of fighting fish that will leave you rushing with adrenaline after a hard fought battle, not to mention taste amazing. Captain Janot will lead up to 6 guests in search of Cobia sheltering under the rock piles, ledges, wrecks, and springs using a dual approach. This specialized trip uses chumming as well as live and dead baits to target Blacktip Shark and Tripletail in addition to Cobia. If you are an experienced fisherman in search of an exciting adventure, this 8 hour nearshore journey is the trip for you!...Read More
While the trip targets Blacktip Shark, Tripletail, and Cobia, there are many other species just waiting to be caught. Perhaps you will hook Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Sheepshead, Mackerel, and more. The 130HP Yamaha engine on Captain Janot’s 22’ Hydraskiff will power you through the calm waters towards special places where the target species congregate. Captain Janot has an incredible depth of knowledge and can find these places for you, meaning all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride before the action starts.
Captain Janot will provide you with all the necessary equipment as well as water and ice boxes, so just bring sun protection and snacks before you embark on this electrifying experience!
Captain Janot has been fishing since he was a little boy, whacking freshwater fish like Bass and Crappie. Now, he's an expert saltwater charter captain who knows how to put you on fish and help you land 'em! Whether you're a newbie or an experienced angler, Captain Janot will show you a great time on the water and do everything you can to fill your cooler, get that trophy picture, or both. A trip with him is sure to be a blast!

Captain took us out on Friday. Weather was iffy with winds and chop forecast to make it not the best day and Captain offered to take us Saturday versus Friday, but Friday was the only day we could go because of friend returning to Virginia Saturday morning. We ...Read More attempted a little offshore but too rough, so he took us to a more protected area and put us on the fish. When action go slow, he would move us to another spot. Very helpful on teaching us proper technique, used different bait and equipment was first class. We limited out on redfish and caught many redfish just under the legal limit which were released. Caught variety of fish and for the weather conditions, it was a good day of fishing under any conditions. Cleaned our fish when we got to the dock and returned home after a good day of fishing. Would definitely recommend him and would go fishing with him again. He worked hard for us from start to finish.

I had asked about fishing, scalloping, spear fishing, and catching shark-and he made it happen. It was a long hot day, but we scalloped (not very well, but not the Captain’s fault), and my daughter finally got to reel in her shark! Spear fishing - well that wasn’t ...Read More the captain’s fault either. We caught a wide variety of fish (more than on any previous trip), including a massive stingray! Got to keep several fish and scallops, and our kids had fun (15 yr old boy and girl). Would recommend! Thank you for taking us out.
