Crystal River Getting Jiggy...

Written by

A good winter time trout charter today with Richard and Joe on board and we jigged up some trout. I met the guys at 9am from Pete's Pier marina and we made our way down the Crystal River. We jigged some bars around the outer islands and did well. The bite wasn't hot, but we would catch one here and there as we eased along. Glow DOA cal shad tail jigs and bourbon colored MirrOlure Lil' johns were the baits of the day. I did make a stop for a river red fish, but only a couple little guys bent the rod. A fun day and you guys did great fishing on your first Crystal River trout trip... Capt. Dan

In the Woods...

Written by

A last minute cancellation for today's charter, but I was able to break in my new engine on my skiff and fish with my good friend Capt. Randy Hodges. Yesterday, I had my new 2015 Mercury 115 four stoke installed on my Silver King skiff and I was anxious to put some time on it, before I began chartering out of it. I always enjoy this time of year when the conditions are right and pole the rocky shore lines deep in Ozello. The fog was a bit of a hazard for the morning hours, but soon cleared and we were eventually deep in the woods. The red fish were definitely there and we caught about a dozen on DOA golden bream jerk baits over a couple hours, while casting along the shore lines. A good time and here's Randy with the big one from today... Capt. Dan

Offshore Inventory...

Written by

A picture perfect day offshore Crystal River with Hazel and Bill on board again and we had a ball. This was a catch and release trip, so I was just as excited as they were, " I was wanting to check on the grouper". We trolled over just a couple spots and the gags were hitting just about every pass. We released some fine ones over the 10lb mark and then mixed it up on some rocks for a little variety. A couple more grouper, sheepshead and some real nice sea bass filled out our afternoon - it was a great time. I thank you both and I look forward to seeing you next time... Capt. Dan

Early Arrival Sheep's....

Written by

Well folks, it's the beginning of that time of year again when the sheepshead congregate for their annual winter spawn. If you all know me or have followed me over the years; you know how I love to target winter sheepshead. I had Bill and Hazel on board for the day " I'm back up and running" and we checked out some offshore winter sheepshead haunts. It's still a bit early for the large spawning congregations, but we caught several keepers and it gave me some reassurance the abundance of fish are on their way. We didn't keep any fish today and it was just a fun catch and release trip; along with some river red fish as well. I thank you both for the fun day and I look forward to our next Crystal River Charter... Capt. Dan
