Reds & Gags...

A beautiful Saturday on the big pond with Marilyn and Dave and the team had a great day red fishing; plus picking up a pair of gags. We began the day from the Plantation on Crystal River and made our way to a couple outer keys and jumped right on the red fish. Free lined live shrimp worked beautifully on the red fish and the wind was calming down enough to troll up a couple grouper. We used Rapala CD 14's and trolled up a couple shorts, plus a pair of nice keepers. I always enjoy the day with you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

Another good one offshore Crystal River with Gil and Tommy and the guys had quite the day. We stopped inshore on the grass flats and loaded the live-well with fresh live pin fish. The next stop though, was 30ft and we had perfect conditions to do so. We arrived at our destination and the day was made. The guys had to work for the keepers, as we released numerous 22"-23" gags; but we eventually got'em - plus a limit of mangrove snapper. A beautiful day on the gulf and I look forward to next time...

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

Well, today was the first day I gave trolling for grouper a try for the 2016 season. Ron, Dick and Larry were with me for the day and we did well. We started the day using Rapala x-rap 20's and immediately hooked up. The guys had a couple doubles and although most were on the short side, we did land a nice keeper gag. We left the grouper trolling, made a quick stop at a rock pile for some snapper and grunts; then finished the day inshore. Each of the guys caught a fine slot red fish, plus a couple shorties to wrap up the day. A fun time and I look forward to next time. Here's Dick with his first keeper gag grouper.. Capt. Dan

Shallow Gags...

It's been a very tough grouper season so far, but things are looking better. It's not that we're all not catching fish, but the 24" size change is a real game changer. I had Dave, Stephen and Alex on board and we went ledge jumping all day and picked up grouper along the way. It was a live bait bite for us and palm sized pin fish did the trick. The guys turned a couple keepers, had a few get the best of us and landed several shorts. As we get in to the coming weeks, the action will improve and the fall season will be here before we know it. A great time team and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Slow Gags, hot Mango's...

A fun day with the Roach team out of Crystal River today and even though the grouper bite was slow, we had some good action. I made the run south to the 28ft range and we poked around some of my favorite locations for the gags. We caught a couple gags that just fell short of the keeper mark and a fine red grouper surprised us to come on home. The snapper bite though was great, and a fine limit of mango's came on board and several grunts filled out the day. It was a hot one on the big pond and I thank you all for the great time... Capt. Dan

Always a fun day with the Settin the Hook team and we had a ball. Ann, Venny and Ashley were my team and they were ready to get'em. Today was my first day back at the office since my vacation and it was nice to be on the big pond. I was very surprised how dirty Crystal Bay is right now and it's zero visibility. Anyway, we pushed on out and had a fun time. We caught grouper, snapper, cobia, snook and some fine red fish. Live pin fish were the baits of the day and I truly thank you all for the great time. Here's Venny with her first red fish and was it ever a beauty... Capt. Dan

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
