Homosassa Offshore...

A nice relaxing holiday weekend off, but back to work today with the Athens family and we did some grouper digging. I picked up the family at their waterfront home on the Homosassa river and we made our way offshore. The action was good today as we picked up keeper gags on a couple different rock piles ranging from 12ft to 23ft. Cut threadfin herring was once again the top producing bait for us. The team also added some fine tasting grunts and mangrove snapper to the mix to top off their Homosassa charter. A great time with you all, as always and I thoroughly enjoy my days with you... Capt. Dan.   On a side note, I leave for my annual fly fishing trip to Wyoming Wednesday and will return the end of July. I'll be posting updates from out West and hopefully some beautiful trout pictures. I'll see you all soon!!!

Late Bite Gags...

The cobia were sure happy today, but it sure took a while for the grouper to turn on. Today's Crystal River charter I had Mike and Kathy on board for some grouper digging. The team and I fished some of the shallow ledges towards the North today and it was "DEAD". Only one short gag, but a real hefty cobia came aboard to get the day going. After nine different stops, we made a long run south and got on the grouper. We finished off our hard earned limit of gags and had some fine quality fish to show for it. I thank you both and look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan

Grouper season opener...

We were rained out for yesterday's grouper season opener, but today was awesome. I had Casey and Brandon on board from the Sodium store in Crystal River and we made the run West. I tried a couple shallow stops in the 10ft range, but only one short to show for our efforts. So, we hammered down to 25ft of water and in one stop, we had our limit. The guys put a beautiful limit of gag grouper in the box and we headed back to the dock. A combination of cut threadfin herring and live pin fish were the baits of the day. Thank you both again and let's do it again soon... Capt. Dan

Tarpon, Gags & Cobia...

An amazing last three days with my cousin Rich on board. Rich was here for has annual tarpon June trip and we did outstanding. We jumped 17 tarpon over the last couple of days and boated four. Most of the fish were deep, so we used DOA bait busters for the majority of our days. Tides played a big role on when the tarpon turned on, but when they did; it was great. Rich also caught his first cobia and also caught and released a couple gag grouper. A very memorable trip and I always look forward to next year... Capt. Dan

On the Rocks Day two...

Day two for us at the Homosassa Fishing Club with the Conklin party and my team today did great again. We ran to the shallow rocks and went jumping rock to rock, catching an assortment of species. The conditions were identical as yesterday and it was definitely bumpy out there for the morning hours. We used live shrimp on Hank Brown jig heads and it was just a fun day of fishing. I thank you all for two great days and I look forward to having you all on board again soon... Capt. Dan

On the Rocks...

A great family on board for today's Saturday charter and Mitchell, Dave and Eric had a blast. We left from Pete's Pier Marina just after 8am and made our run to the trout grounds to start the day. The wind wind up a bit out of the East which made for some fast drifting; but we did land quite a few under sized trout and some keepers while giving it a try. With the choppy conditions though, I knew a best bet was anchoring up on the shallow rocks and having some fun bending the rod. The team stayed busy with the usual mix of species and once again just a live shrimp on a knocker rig was the bait of choice. I thank you all for the fun time and I look forward to seeing you all again soon... Capt. Dan

Offshore Crystal River...

The day of all days to go offshore and Bill, Henry and Steve hit it out of the park. I met the guys at 8am and we headed West. When I reached the mouth of the river it was like glass, so we made the run to 30ft. I anchored and the day was pretty much non stop action. Live shrimp on knocker rigs kept the rods bent and it was some fantastic fishing. We also caught some blue runners that we used as live bait and landed a 15lb gag grouper on one. It was one of those picture perfect days and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

The perfect day to go offshore with Meredith and Blake for the day and the rods stayed bent. I took the couple to the 25ft range and dropped down live shrimp on knocker rigs. The bite was on and literally every drop produced a fish. We had a nice variety of species and a real beauty of a mangrove snapper too. The water was clear and seeing the fish swim around under the boat is always a treat. What A fun day and I look forward to doing it again soon... Capt. Dan

Gags & Trout...

What a pleasure to have Curtis on board for the day and we had a ball. Curtis will be moving to the area with his wife shortly and wanted to see what Crystal River has to offer. We did a variety of things today from cork rigging the flats, jigging the grass patches and casting plugs for grouper. We caught a little bit of everything and the weather was spectacular. I really enjoyed the day and I thank you for the great time... Capt. Dan

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
