Crystal River Offshore...

I took a break from the tarpon skiff today and I had the pleasure of having Tim on board and we made our way offshore. Tim's tried several times to go out with me and the weather has always been not in our favor. Today though was fair and we made it happen. I fished the 28ft of water range and we caught a limit of gags, some mangrove snapper and a fine bonus hog fish. Everything was caught bottom fishing and we beat the offshore storm in, just in time. A fine day and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River, Getting Good...

One of those special days out of Crystal River for the Nash family and these guys had a good one. The bite was really on for us and a quick stop inshore on the red fish, got our day going. In five cast, the team brought four nice slot red fish to the boat. Next up, we headed West to 30ft and had a fantastic offshore afternoon. The gags cooperated nicely; as well as the grunts, snapper, mackerel and a bonus hog fish. Quite the day guys and congratulations on the stellar trip... Capt. Dan

Offshore/Inshore...

A deep run today out to close to 40ft with Brian, Brad and Robert and these gentlemen had a killer day. The gulf was absolutely flat calm and we hammered down offshore. Our first drop was very productive. Big mangrove snapper and a couple keeper gags greeted us right away, plus a couple mackerel too. We moved around a couple times, but no more keeper grouper - the big snapper kept us busy though. With a good catch, we ran inshore, stopped on a key and caught a fine red fish and snook to wrap up an outstanding day. Thank you all so much and I really look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Inside and Out...

A nice mix today on both some inshore and offshore fishing. I had some great friends from high school on board that I haven't seen in quite sometime and we had a blast. From jigging trout, to dropping knocker rigs on the rock piles; the bite was on today. The team had a great mix of trout, sheepshead, grouper, trigger fish, grunts and hog fish. A couple of the species we caught today, the seasons were closed; but we had a blast catching and releasing. I really enjoyed the day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Hogs & Gags...

My final day ending a four great day fishing extravaganza with Phil and Matt. These last couple days have been quite memorable and the catches, have been fantastic. Today was another awesome trip out of Homosassa and my man Matt was on the hog fish. Matt had the hod rod and brought in six hog fish on hook and line, while Phil was the grouper man today. The weather was absolutely perfect for November and I can't thank you both enough for all the fun times. Here's the crew with a catch to be proud of... Capt. Dan

Beautiful Offshore....

Without a doubt, the most picture perfect beautiful day one could ask for and Clell and Lee were able to experience it. We left the Plantation on Crystal River to very foggy conditions, but once we reached the Mangrove Pt. area, it was smooth sailing offshore. The guys and I targeted the 28ft area today and with glass calm conditions, we had a awesome catch. A limit of gag grouper, a big king Mack, several grunt and a hog fish filled out the day. I bottomed fished today, as the grass was just to thick to drag plugs. On the way back inshore, I was reluctant to red fish as it was so slow yesterday; but we hit one little pocket and brought in four fine slot sized red fish to end the day. A perfect day and I thank you both as always for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Offshore Crystal River...

A really nice day offshore Crystal River with Shane and Bart on board and in two stops; they had a great catch. I made a run to the South today in the 28ft range and did some bottom fishing. It was two grassy to troll, so bottom fishing was going to be the plan. The grouper were slamming both live and dead baits and in a short time, the team had their four gags. i changed over to live shrimp on knocker rigs and we began catching a nice variety. Mangrove snapper, hog fish, grunts and Spanish mackerel kept us busy for the afternoon and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Offshore...

The day of all days to go offshore Homosassa with Bill and Larry on board we headed West. The team and I did try our luck at some red fish for a couple quick stops, but only came up with shorts; so we hammered down to grouper land. We reached the 20ft range and the bite was on. Bill and Larry caught a beautiful mix of grouper, snapper, hog fish and grunts to show for the their efforts. Some fantastic action on the offshore rocks piles and I thank you both for the fun day...

A picture perfect day offshore Crystal River with Steve and Frank and all I can can say is "awesome". The bite was incredible in 20ft of water and one stop produced a limit of grouper, mangrove snapper, grunts and some bonus hog fish. The sea's were nice with a slight roll out of the South and it was a smooth ride to the grouper grounds. Live shrimp produced the snapper and live pin fish did the trick for the grouper. I thank you both for a great day and congratulations on your catch... Capt. Dan

Offshore...

Probably the nicest day of the grouper season so far to go offshore and Mike and Pat hit it out of the park. This was a fun trip I've been promising these guys and it worked out beautifully. Calm seas and a smooth ride out to the 20ft range. We sent down the live pin fish and it was on. Hefty gags, a keeper red grouper and a bonus hog fish was our catch. The day couldn't have been any better and I thank you both for the great day... Capt. Dan
