Crystal River Offshore...

A postcard kind of day offshore Crystal River with Mishel and Earl and the grouper action was great. I covered the 15ft to 28ft range and the rods stayed bent all day. Once again, lots and lots of 22"-23" gags being released, but we found a pair of fine keepers to take home, plus a bonus hog fish. A great day on the big pond and I thank you both as always for the great day... and Happy Anniversary too... Capt. Dan

Settin The Hook...

One of those special days with Ashley, Ann and Jacki on board and we had a blast. Ann owns a fine clothing apparel company called "Settin The Hook" and I always enjoy taking her team of lady anglers out for the day. For today's trip, I took the team offshore Crystal River and we caught some gag and red grouper, plus a couple cobia. We had a couple keeper sized fish and released a pile of, (would have been keepers last year). So, with some good grouper action under our belts, we made our way back in the keys and had some of the best red fishing you could ever hope for. We had doubles on for over 30 minutes and we caught close to 25 red fish. Most of the red fish were lower slot, but Ashley had big fish honors with a fine 26" beauty. A wonderful day and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Variety...

A fantastic day with Jim on board and today, we had the variety show going on. The gulf is hot at 88 degrees but the fishing is still quite good. The day began as we brought a fine tarpon boat side, for the morning hours. Tarpon are always welcomed, but the next surprise, a cobia popped up and we caught it on the fly rod. To keep the variety going, I made a stop on a grouper ledge and Jim tackled a couple gags up to just under the keeper size. As we ended this great day, a nice slot red fish came on board and two hefty snook threw the jerk baits back at us to finish up our trip. An awesome day and thank you for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

A little break from the tarpon action and my first offshore trip since grouper season opened June 1st and it was a fun day. I had Bob and Nancy on board out of the Plantation on Crystal River and we made of way out to the 30ft range. We fished a couple different structures and did very well. I will say this, with the new gag grouper size regulation being 24"; it's going to be a tough year for constant limits of grouper. We released over a dozen gag grouper that would have been keeper fish last year, but we eventually had our 4 keepers ranging from 24" to 27".  We added some grunts and snapper to the mix and I thank you both for the fun day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

Always a fun time with Bob and when he's on board, it's a great time. For today's trip, we did a little bit of everything. We began the day catching a snook back in the creeks in salt river, and then made our way offshore for some grouper. Well, the grouper bite was good; but they were all on the short side for us today. The cobia were around too, but all around the 30" mark, but fun all the same. To end the day, I checked a hole and found a couple tarpon and we battled a fine fish for about 30 minutes before she broke off. A great really good mix for the day and I thank you for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Inshore...

Always a fun day with Joe and Joanne and last trip we tackled the big cobia. For today's trip, we stayed inshore and did well on the trout and red fish. The tide was incoming for the morning hours so we jumped right into red fishing and cut pin fish was the bait of choice. The bait stealers are in full force now, so unless your shrimp is jumbo size; it won't last long. The couple did great on the red fish and released an over slot too. Next up, we jigged the 8ft range and caught some fine trout on a couple of drifts for the out going tide. I tried for a cobia , but all we came up with was some fine gag grouper. A great day with you both and this is my last "regular" charter for a while. Tarpon season is upon us and wish me luck. The next couple of weeks are going to be challenging, but fun all the same....

Homosassa Variety...

We covered the whole spectrum from inshore to offshore with Jason and Mike on board for the day. I picked up the father and some team at Macrae's and we began back in the creeks hooking in to some nice snook, trout and red fish. I put the trolling motor down and we eased along targeting the points with DOA jerk baits. The guys caught a fine inshore slam, plus some for the morning hours. The tide dropped out, and we trekked offshore for more fun and more species. Cobia, grouper and grunts bent the rod for the afternoon and it was an fantastic day. Thank you both so much.... Capt. Dan

The boys from the East side of the county were on board and Bart, Danny and Shane were the team for the day. I made the run to 9ft of water to some grass patches and we jigged out way to a fine catch of trout. The trout are on small isolated grass patches, but when you find them; they are really concentrated. We made about 4 drifts and the guys had their limit. Next up, we caught and released some gag grouper and brought home a couple fine triple tail to end the day. Always a great day with you all and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Offshore Fun...

It was one of those special days offshore and there was "NOT" a ripple on the gulf. I had the pleasure of having Ann, Ashley, and Kim on board and these ladies had a ball. I took them to some offshore locations and let them pull on some big gags. The grouper bite was good as it could be and we caught some real nice one's reaching 16lbs. I mixed it up a bit as well, and also found a couple cobia and triple tail for the day. Ann represents "Settin the Hook" clothing line and please check them out on facebook. It's great and I thank you all for the awesome time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Heavy Weight...

One more day with a fine mixed catch with Joe and Joann on board and on today's trip, we made our way offshore a bit. The cobia run is in full swing, so I ran to some of my favorite haunts and we did very well. We hooked four cobia, landed 2 and also over a dozen keeper sized gag grouper. Live pin fish was the bait of the day. For the afternoon hours, we added some trout and triple tail to the total and I thank you both for a great day. Here's the couple with a fine cobia, well over the 30lb mark... Capt. Dan
