Icy Reds....

Written by

Baby it's cold outside "ice on the boat until 9am". Well, this is the cold front we did not need. The gulf has plummeted into the low 50's and not being on the water the last three days; it is the game changer. The winds are forecast to be up for the long range forecast and I personally only have done well on grouper when the gulf is above the 58 degree mark. I hope for warmer weather before the December 3rd season closure, but there's plenty of other species to target; which leads me to today. On today's charter I had Allen and Mike on board and we stayed inshore for the incoming tide and found some fine red fish. The bite was slow to be expected, but we caught several shorts, an over slot and some keepers to make the day. Free lined live shrimp and DOA jerk-baits were the baits of the day. Thank you both for the good time and great job on a chilly day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Hot Shallow Gags....

Written by

This grouper season has been incredible and today was one of the best yet. Larry, Ben and Kenny joined me for a Crystal River Grouper Charter and the bite was on. I made a run to 11ft of water and trolled over a low profile rock and "wham", first fish on. As we reeled in that fish, several others were following; so we pitched back a plug and fish number two was on. We repeated that process twice and had four fish in the boat in a matter of minutes. It was fantastic action and I didn't want to deplete the rock, so a quick run to 20ft and we were in the fish again. A couple drops, a couple more keepers and "wow" we had a day. This is going to be the last decent day for a while with some cold and gusty weather coming. Hopefully by mid week, the conditions will improve and I'll be back on the water. Thanks guys for the great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Trolling Gags...

Written by

It was day two with the West family and Tom and his dad Herbert had a ball. The weather was much more favorable today and we were able to spend more time tackling some grouper. However, I took a minute and a quick stop in the river to catch a couple snook before we headed West. After a couple small fun sized snook, we made our run to 20ft of water and put out the plugs. I stayed off Crystal River today and even though the water is dirty, we trolled up a fine limit of gags. They were wanting natural colors and only one came on a orange Rapala x-rap 20. To end our trip, I anchored up on a small rock and found some early arrival sheepshead and a few grunts to wrap up our day. I thank you both for a fun couple of days and look forward to seeing you soon... Capt. Dan

Cold Front Snook & Grouper....

Written by

I'm not a weather man, but I believe it's going to be a chilly winter. Today was a cold one for sure, but Tom and Herbert bundled up and we went for a ride. I began the day with the father and son team and we caught a couple river snook to get the day going. We had one nice slot fish on, but chewed through the leader and the others were in the 15"-20" range. Next, we hit the gulf and in the choppy conditions; we were able to troll up a pair of gags. A hard effort to catch some, but we made it happen. Thank you both for the great time and look forward to our next trip... Capt. Dan
