    My boat is a custom one of a kind Proline 24 Bay

    I designed it and specially it built for my chartering business right here in Homosassa. It handels the shallow flats and offshore seas with ease and it's an extremely comfortable dry ride. It's powered by the finest; a 225 Mercury Optimax Saltwater series engine.

    Silver King 16 Signature

    A legendary skiff and "THE" tarpon skiff for fishing the Crystal River & Homosassa River area.

    I have it custom rigged with dual 109 lb thrust 36 volt trolling motors, elevated casting platform and powered by the finest - a 115 Pro XS Mercury Optimax.

We have a stiff NE breeze coming tomorrow according to the NOAA weather forecast and I was glad to troll up some gags today. I had Gilbert, Sherri and Paul on board for the day and grouper was on their menu. The seas' were rocking and rolling for the morning hours and we stayed close to shore and fished some shallow ledges in hopes of scrapping out some grouper. We caught some on bait, but they were all on the short side along with several sharks and the bite was quite slow from spot to spot. Finally, around 1pm I was able to a make a couple mile run to some good hard bottom and troll up some fine gag grouper. Rapala x-rap 20's in the blue mackerel color were the baits of the day and the grouper hit them hard. I had to cancel tomorrows charter with the weather being unfavorable, but I'll be back on the water soon.... Capt. Dan

Slow gags, Hot Reds...

Written by

Not the hot gag grouper bite like yesterday, but we caught a few. I had Casey on board for the day and we made our run to the rocks. The sea's were up some, so we stayed in the 10ft range like yesterday; but the bite wasn't nearly as hot. I put out a spread of baits and we landed one nice fish around 15lbs, plus several shorts. The sea's calmed around noon and made a jump to the 25ft range. The red grouper action was excellent with lot's of keepers, but unfortunately the season is closed. We didn't have any more gag bites and burned through our baits releasing red grouper. Always a fun time with you bud and look forward to seeing you next time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Big Dogs....

Written by

A week ago today the trout fishing was fantastic, but today it just wasn't happening. I was out of Macrae's on the Homosassa River fishing Tom and his family Karl and Stephen. The wind was up a bit for the morning hours and we gave it our best trout fishing, as I drove all over the "entire" gulf of Mexico it seemed like. One trout and that was it for a couple hours of fishing. The good news was, the winds layed down around 10:30 and we ran West. I stopped on a shallow rock in 10ft of water and in 20 minutes the guys had six beautiful grouper on ice - some really large ones too. We wrapped up the day and added one red fish to the catch and we headed to the dock. An awesome day grouper fishing and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Hot Grouper...

Written by

Just about a mirror image to yesterday's charter, but we stayed in a bit shallower to find the gags. Scott, David and Jordan were with me for the day and we made the run offshore. I had plenty of thread fin herring on board, but I always like to catch them on plugs if I can. We sent down the rapala x-raps and the rest is history. The team had an awesome day of catching their limit of grouper, plus some grunts and mackerel on the rocks. I can't thank you all enough for the fun time and here's the team with a fine catch of Crystal River grouper... Capt. Dan
