Homosassa Trout Day 2. March 2nd 2011

Written by

P3020397The trout bite was on today and even though is was a little breezy, we did fantastic. I had Jim and Mike on board again for day two, of their second day charter and we found the big ones. The tide was extremely low this morning, so we ran a little offshore and fished the deeper grass flats off Homosassa. We didn't have the high numbers like we did yesterday, but the size average was definitely better. It was a great day with our 15 keeper trout; three being over 20" and releasing a few others in the slot. A few Spanish mackerel and even a respectable sized silver trout helped fill out the day. The DOA cal silver mullet paddle tail jig was the go to bait today. Thank you both for a very memorable couple days of fishing and look forward to seeing you in the future... Capt. Dan

P3010394Trout season started off today fantastic! I had Mike and Jim on board and I picked the guys up from their rental, on the Homosassa river. We fished the flats off Homosassa and the trout were on the feed. At one point in the day, we had a fish on our lines almost every cast for over 30 minutes. Numerous trout in the 14 1/2" to just over 15" size was the average, with a few in the upper slot. DOA glow shrimp on a 1/8oz jig head was the bait of choice. Thanks guys for the fun day and here is today's catch... Capt. Dan

P2270392I believe today was the last day for me to be targeting the inshore sheepshead. The abundance of bait stealer's makes it to difficult for the sheepshead to get to your bait and "Trout season opens Tuesday". I had the Robins family on board today and I picked them up from their home of the Homosassa river. We ran offshore and did great on the Spanish mackerel and picked up a few sheepshead on the same structure. Free lined live shrimp and a little chumming, brought the macks right to the boat and it was fish on. Another beautiful day on the water and I thank you all for a great time... Capt. Dan
P2260390Wow, what a difference a day can make! Yesterday, 4ft seas offshore and today, it was smooth as glass. I picked up the Grant family at Pete's Pier this morning and we ran offshore Crystal River to catch a few mackerel. The conditions were so perfect today, that we were almost wishing we had a breeze to keep us cool. Anchoring up over hard bottom and chumming kept our rods bent with the Spanish mackerel. Free lined live shrimp did the trick and the crew is looking forward to mackerel fillets on the grill tonight. Thanks guys for the fun morning and enjoy the fish... Capt. Dan
