Next Bonefish Hotspot, Wait, What?

Capt. Clay Shidler's 8-year-old client Annabelle Touchton surprised everyone when she caught a 7 pound bonefish on a shrimp tipped jig near Crystal River, Florida on September 1st.   Crystal River, on the Big Bend portion of Florida’s west coast, mid-way between Tampa and the Panhandle, is an area renowned for its redfishing; for grouper and snapper offshore.  But not bonefish.
