Reds,Trout, Gags...

The bite's been off a little bit on the back side of this past full moon and the long outgoing tide all day, makes it challenging as well. However, we still had a fun day with Scott, Frank and Chris on board and caught a nice mix of red fish, trout and grouper. The red fish began the day on the start of the outgoing tide and we caught a nice limit of red fish on live shrimp. Next up, we trolled around a bit and caught a nice gag and some shorts, but the floating grass is still making it cumbersome to troll. It will get better, soon as we get a couple cold fronts coming through the area. To wrap up the trip, we picked up a pair of trout and called it a day. A great day with you all and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mixing it Up...

A little mix of inshore & offshore with the Fitzpatrick family and there was no weather to contend with today. A beautiful day and on the morning outgoing tide, we caught a couple red fish and a bonus snook to start it off. The tide dropped out quickly, and we next caught a couple trout on cork rigs before we ran offshore. The sea's were calm and the grouper action was OK. We landed a nice keeper, several shorts and a few big dogs got the best of us before we wrapped up the day. A fun time with you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

So much for the 30% rain chance today! Soon as I picked up Tony and Donna at their beautiful home on the Homosassa river, there were rain showers greeting us in the gulf. We actually got chased back to the house, but the afternoon was pretty decent. Our afternoon consisted of using DOA deadly combos for the trout and we picked up a few nice ones. We only kept a couple for dinner and released the rest. I made a stop on a shallow ledge for some grouper and we caught a couple, but they were on the short side. The sky started turning dark again and thunder in the distance; so we called it a day. Always a fun time with you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Plantation Redfish Classic...

Quite the day at the Plantation Red fish classic with one of my best friends and fellow Captain's, Clay Shidler. We covered all the basis and had a triple limit. A Good trout bite in the morning, mid day grouper action and finished up on the red fish. We took 1st place in grouper and trout, but our red fish didn't make the cut. This was a great event, as all the redfish were released alive and I look forward to fishing it next year... Capt. Dan

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
