Homosassa Mix...

A great day at the Homosassa Fishing Club with the Scott party and myself and fellow Homosassa Guides Association Captains Mark Zorn, Clay Shidler, Rick Spratt and John Hamilton did outstanding. Awesome trout catches across the board, and good mixes of sea bass, grunts, mackerel, grouper and sheepshead filled out the teams day. My group did very well and had a great variety. I thank you all for the fun day and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Catch & Release...

Wow! What a day on the shallow rocks. We were at the Homosassa Fishing Club for day two fishing the Stribling party and my team did great. My team was outstanding and since it was just a catch and release trip; I said let's check on the shallow water grouper. I ran to the rock piles and we cast plugs to check on the gags and it was awesome. We totaled nine keeper gags on Rapala F18's, took some great pictures and sent them home. Also for the day, we drifted the grass patches in 9ft of water off Homosassa and had a mix. Trout, lady fish, blue fish, sea bass and more sharks than I could count, kept us busy when were weren't tackling the grouper. What a day and I thank Tyler and Nick for the fun day... Capt. Dan

Offshore Crystal River...

One of the best and most memorable days offshore I may have ever had. I had Kristen and Nick on board for the day and we made the trek out to 35ft of water. We did a mix of bottom fishing, trolling and free lining to fill out the day. The bottom fishing for grouper was excellent and we released well over a dozen keeper sized gags, but also caught some red grouper too. The highlight of the day for us though, were the big king mackerel. We free lined sardines while on anchor and caught some beautiful hefty king fish close to 20lbs. These fish were drag burning monsters and it was truly great. I had a first for me today and landed a couple scamp grouper. Scamp grouper are usually found real deep and though these weren't keeper sized; it was still cool to see them. Non stop action and what a beautiful day - I thank you both for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Ladies of the Gulf Variety...

An awesome day and an even better crew on board today. I had the pleasure of having the "Ladies of the Gulf" on board and we had a great mixed bag. Today's trip began drifting offshore a bit in about 6ft of water and jigging up some trout. In a couple of drifts, the team brought about a dozen beautiful trout to the boat, plus lots of lady fish keeping us busy as well. With a fine catch of Crystal River trout, our next stop was to anchor up and do some chumming. I picked one of my favorite rocks and we had plenty of variety. Free lined live shrimp in the chum slick kept us busy and I can't thank you all enough for the great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

Wow! What a beautiful day to go offshore and that's exactly what we did with Sarah and Randy on board. Once again, I made the run to the sheepshead grounds and the bite was just as good as yesterday's; but the size average was up a bit. The action was good and we even picked up a surprise snook on an offshore wreck in almost 20ft of water. With a fine catch of sheepshead, we anchored up and chummed up a few drag burning macks to wrap up the day. I thank you both for the fun time and congratulations on the outstanding catch... Capt. Dan

Offshore Sheep's...

Some more excellent late season sheepshead action offshore and with the Lent family on board; they did fantastic. We fished the ledges in the 17ft-23ft range and did very well. The sheepshead action was very good, as well as the gag grouper. The grouper were pretty much non stop all day and we even had a Goliath grouper grab a grouper for some added excitement. A bonus cobia was caught and we all had a great day. I thank you all for the fun time and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Offshore Sheeps...

Well, I decided to give the offshore sheepshead bite a try once again since the cold front came though. The trout have pretty much locked up since the big temperature change, but it will improve in the coming days. So for today's trip, Burke, Jeremy and I headed offshore. I haven't been to the sheepshead grounds in a couple weeks due to the warm temperatures, but since the gulf dropped back to the low 60's, I knew it should turn the sheepshead back on. Well, it was a good call and the bite was excellent and big fish too. Numerous sheepshead, gag grouper and we picked up a pair of trout on the way home inshore. A fantastic day and I thank you both for the awesome time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Gags...

Always a great time with Mishel and Earl on board and we caught and released some fine gags. It was a slow start today due to the cold front coming through, but we ended strong. I tried to luck into a snook, but all the locations I tried came up empty. So, around noon we made a run south and trolled and casted up a couple gags to put a bend in the rod. It was to late in the day to go out the 20ft range when the winds calmed; but we found them shallow... "7ft of water." Always a great time with you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

An awesome day with my brother and friends and its been close to five years since we fished together. So for today, we made the run offshore and had a great mixed bag. From trout, grouper, hog fish, Spanish mackerel, etc... we had over 10 different species. The best part of the day was the catch and release gag grouper action and we caught some fine sized gags we took pictures of; before we sent them home. A truly picture perfect day offshore and I thank all you guys for the great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A great day and a nice mixed bag with Bill, Stu and Jim out of Crystal River. The team and I left the dock from Pete's Pier Marina just after 8am and we headed to the sheepshead grounds. As you all know, I really enjoy taking my clients sheespehad fishing and it's definitely something special you can't do all year. However, with the water warming, the season is almost over and we're finishing it off with a couple more fine catches. Today was fantastic with good action of sheepshead, sea bass and a few bonus gag grouper. To end with the day, we jigged a couple rock bars and added a couple trout to the mix. I thank you all for the great day and enjoy all the fillets... Capt. Dan
