4 Days of Snook...

We finished up Jim's final day with another solid snook catch and we reached double digits on numbers of fish again. This particular week has been terrific for snook action and it worked out perfect, since the winds were up for the tarpon game. We used one lure, the DOA glow jerk bait and 40lb leader; which we even had a couple fish chew through the heavy leader too. It was a blast being in the back country most of the trip and I thank you for four memorable days. I'll see you in Wyoming soon my friend... Capt. Dan

Yankeetown Snookin"...

An exploring day with Jim again on board and we ran "out of my comfort" zone and did some looking around. I ran to the North side of the county and we eased in some of the creeks I looked at on google earth. The tide was incoming which I definitely wanted to be and just reading the water, we had an awesome trip. Fish like structure no matter where they are and we applied the tactics and did well. Him and I caught a few snook, trout, jacks, saw numerous giant black drum and a bonus flounder. Another fun day and a new area to keep working on... Capt. Dan

Hot Homosassa Snook...

It seems to be a pattern - the lousy the weather, the better the snook bite. It was day two with Jim on board and we hit the snook right on target. Yesterday was great, but today was spectacular. Just about every where that looked "snooky" produced a real quality line-sider, and the DOA glow jerk baits were our baits of the day. Definitely a day to remember and here's Jim with the big one of the day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Snook...

Hello everyone, well this is my busy time of year with long hours, tarpon and I haven't had a bunch of time to keep the updates coming. The last couple of days have been hit and miss on the tarpon, but today we stuck inside with the snook and did very well. Jim is in town from Oregon and had a great day. He brought in several hefty back country snook and had several shake the hook as well. DOA glow jerk baits were the deal and I thank you for a great day. Jims here for the next couple of days, so were going to do some exploring and see what goodies we can find... Capt. Dan

Tough Poons...

We found some rolling tarpon today, but they didn't cooperate to nicely for us. Joe was on board with the for the day and we gave it our all. From live baits to artificial they snubbed their nose at us; except one big fish did explode on a free lined live mullet. The wind was up as well, which made the conditions challenging. To save the day though, we hit the creeks and had some snook action to put a bend in the rod. Always a great time with you bud and I'll see you soon... Capt. Dan

Bob's Tarpon...

The weather was against us today, but we gave it a try and I'm sure glad we did. I had my good friend and long time client Bob from Pennsylvania on board and he reached a life long goal today. Bob did a fine job landing and fighting his first tarpon. We only had a couple hours to fish as the conditions were deteriorating, but a properly presented DOA bait buster did the trick. For the afternoon, we tackled a couple snook and Bob caught his first one as well. A great time and congratulations... Capt. Dan

Awesome Snookin'....

The wind was howling close to 20knts for us today and a big weather change is on the way. The conditions weren't the best but, the snook bite was off the chain. I had Mike and Jason on board for the day and it was a truly special day. The father and son team had seventeen snook for the day and just about everywhere a snook should have been, there was one. We only used DOA glow jerk baits and lost a couple big fish as well. A day like today is special and I thank you both for an awesome Crystal River charter.... Capt. Dan

Team Sugarmill Woods...

The gang was back on board today with Mel, Bill and Jerry and it's always a great time. I ran back offshore again for the good trout action and we did well. It was a bit slower than the last two days, but still pretty steady with a mixed bag. Jigging MirrOlure Lil' Johns once again was the deal. We also anchored on a small rock for some great sea bass action, plus releasing the usual grouper too. To end the day Mel brought in s whopper 35" snook and Bill a fine upper-slot redfish. A wonderful time with you all and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

The Novinger team with me today and we had a ball. We made the run to 10ft of water and some awesome action. Trout, sea bass, gags, lady fish etc... kept us busy. Watermelon provoker MirrOlure's were the flavor of the day on 1/8th oz jig heads. We secured a solid catch offshore and finished up the afternoon with a fine snook and upper-slot red fish. I thank you all for the great time and look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Chazz Slam..

A nice inshore slam today with Carol and Bill on board and it was a beautiful day. I was out of Homosassa and I made the trek south. We used DOA glow jerk baits to start the day and caught a couple nice trout and sight fished a beautiful snook at 31". The tide got right about 1pm and we red fished the afternoon. It wasn't to great, but we caught a pair and we all had a great day. Here's Carol with a beautiful Chazz snook... Capt. Dan
