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

Hot Sheep.....

It was another spring like day on the big pond and Carl, Dan, Jessica and Mike hit it out of the park. I met the gang at Pete's Pier at 9am and we ran to some of my favorite sheepshead ledges I haven't yet been to this year and it was on. The team did fantastic and the bite was unbelievable. Numerous nice sized sheepshead and some keepers sized catch and release gags filled out our day. I thank the whole group for the fun time and I look forward to our next charter... Capt. Dan

Big Sheep's...

The sheepshead bite sure is good right now and Bob and Sandy had a great day to experience it. I met the couple at Pete's Pier Marina and it was smooth sailing all the way to 20ft of water. We anchored on the first spot and did well. Some hefty sheepshead came aboard and some catch and release gags as well. The next couple of stops were slow, but the afternoon bite was excellent. A nice of a day as you could ask for and I thank you both for the fun time. Here's Sandy with the big one of the day... Capt. Dan

Grunt Land & Hogs...

Another beautiful day to go offshore and today's plan with Phil was to try to catch a hog fish and load up on some tasty grunts. We ran offshore to some live bottom in 25ft of water and the bite was on. Every single drop down with a shrimp produced a fish. We went through over 200 shrimp and the grunts were non stop action. When the grunts slowed some, the hog fish moved in and we put three nice hog fish on ice. The grouper action was excellent as well and we released many, many gags and a couple red grouper too. I thank you Phil for two great day of fishing and enjoy all the fish back home... Capt. Dan

Family Sheep's...

Nothing makes me more happy than seeing a youngster hooked up to a fish. I had the Behnen family on board today and young 6yr old Nathan, was reeling them in. I worked a couple different ledges and using live shrimp on knocker rigs; we caught a little variety. Grunts, sheepshead, sea bass and grouper filled out our day and everyone did great. The day was beautiful and is sure was good to see the sun out again. I thank you all for the great day and look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan

A fine winter day out of Crystal River with some great guys. Larry, Henry and John were on board and we did a little inside and out fishing. We started the day using DOA glow jerk baits around some kelp grass patches in 3ft of water and on a couple drifts, the team caught some nice trout. Only a couple shorts and all the keepers were nice quality fish. We left the inside and headed out to some ledges. We caught a mix of sheepshead, grunts and some gags to fill out the afternoon. The action was surprisingly slow compared to yesterday, but we still did well. I thank you all for the great day and I look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan

Nature Coast Outdoors!!!

Once the fog cleared, it was a perfect day to be offshore. Today my great friend Capt. William Toney, the host of the fantastic local TV show "Nature Coast Outdoors" and I filmed a great show targeting sheepshead on the rocks off Crystal River. We left from the Plantation on Crystal River and made our way offshore. The weather got us down yesterday, but today it was excellent. Non stop action with sheepshead and grouper - it will be a good one to tune in on in the coming weeks. I always enjoy fishing with you bud, and thanks for a great day... Capt. Dan

Catch and Release Gags...

What an incredible day to be offshore. Calm seas, top to bottom visibility and the grouper were on! I had my dear great clients Mishel and Earl on board for the day and as a treat, they asked if my wife Becky could come along and join the fun. The day was perfect for trolling and we trolled up some fine grouper on Rapala x-rap 20's. Just about all the gags were above the 14lb mark and the largest was just under 20lbs. We did anchor up and try our luck for a hog fish, but none today. Lots of non stop action though with grunts, more large grouper and a trigger fish. A beautiful day with great friends and family and I thank you all so much for the excellent day.... Capt. Dan
