Join Captain Janot after the sun sets and stalk the saltwater shallows in pursuit of Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, Snapper, Mullet, and other tasty fish that hang out just under the surface! You will spend five hours stalking fish in darkness amongst the mazes of mangrove islands, creek mouths, and oyster bars in the backwaters of Crystal River and Ozello. This trip is limited to two people for the best experience but can accommodate up to four....Read More
As you creep along the flats in Captain Janot’s 21’ Carolina Skiff, hold on to your gig carefully and wait for potential prey. The skiff’s shallow draft allows it to slide through the water without disturbing many fish, making you a dangerous nocturnal predator. It can comfortably fit up to four people as well as iceboxes and gigs, which will be provided by Captain Janot. Your vessel also comes equipped with a Fishfinder, helping Captain Janot guide you through the night.
Captain Janot will provide you gigs and flashlights as well as his extensive knowledge of the network of flats around Crystal River. Just wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, bring water and a snack, and get ready for a unique and amazing night-time 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.
