Crystal River Slam! Nov. 30th 2010

PB300300Today we had the big three; snook, trout and red fish. I met Murry, Bart and Shane at Pete's Pier this morning and made a quick stop in the river to see if the snook were still around. In a few cast we hooked up, and Shane brought a beautiful snook in the boat. In the same area, we had several other followers and a few miss the plug right next to the boat:one even jumped completely out of the water and he was in the 30" class. Next, we ran to the creeks and we found the red fish. 19 red fish made their way to the boat and they were definitely on the feed today. Free lined live shrimp was the ticket and it was one of the best red fishing days I have seen in a while. The guys wanted to add some trout to the mix, so we ran to the 6ft grass flats and caught a mixture of silver and speckled trout with a few mackerel. It was a fantastic day and a great change of pace for me from all the grouper fishing I have been doing; I had a great time myself. Thanks for a fun time and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan
PB280294I wasn't sure how the weather was going to be today with the forecast calling for breezy conditions, but it turned out to be a good one.  I had Michel, Earl and Dan on board this morning and I picked up the crew from the Plantation Inn. We made a quick stop down the river and immediately hooked in to a couple snook. Michel had the hod rod and she went two for six with the ones landed being in the mid 20" class. With the steam slowly starting to rise from the cooling towers at the power plant, I said lets go offshore and give the grouper a try. Well, to be truthful we had to work hard for them today. I must have tried over fifteen locations and all I had to show for it was a hand full of shorts. Looking at my watch it was almost 2:30pm and nothing in the cooler. I made one more stop in the 15ft range and it was game on. Pass after pass we hooked up and in less then 30 minutes we had our limit; and even threw back a couple keepers. Persistence usually pays off and today proved that. Thanks to everyone for all the hard work and determination, I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan
PB260288I had the pleasure of fishing the Worthington family today, and they were ready to burn off the Thanksgiving turkey reeling in some fish. We left Pete's Pier at 8am and ran a couple miles offshore and trolled up a couple grouper. The grouper bite was just turning on and just as we started to pick up a couple keepers, mother nature chased us inshore. We just about out ran the rain storm, but only a few minutes of rain slowed us down before we started trout fishing. The rain passed and the trout turned on. We caught a mixture of silver and speckled trout on DOA cal jigs and a mackerel to add to the mix. The front finally had passed, then wind switched into high gear; so we called it a day. The weather may have not been the best, but we always catch a few. Thanks guys for the fun day and look forward to our next charter... Capt. Dan
PB240284What a perfect day to run offshore and catch some Thanksgiving grouper. I had Mack, Joe and Ricky on board today and grouper was the name of the game. With perfect seas we ran offshore to the 20ft range and it was fish on. The grouper bite was fantastic and every location we fished today produced a few grouper. We did hook into a couple big dogs we couldn't turn while trolling and unfortunately lost the fish. The color of the plugs didn't seem to matter and everything we tried put fish in the boat. It was an exceptionally good catch today and you guys did great. Thanks for the fun time and I hope every one has a great Thanksgiving holiday... Capt. Dan
