Black and White Stripes Jan. 29th 2011

P1290347A great day out of Crystal River and we were seeing black and white; sheepshead stripes that is. I had Ryan and Dr. Chris Mckenney on board today and the guys requested to give the sheepshead bite a try. It was one of those picture perfect days, calm seas, clear water and the fish were on the feed. We fished a variety of structure's today and all produced quality sheepshead. A live shrimp on a 1/8oz knocker rig was the tackle choice for the day. The guys kept a few to feed the families, while we released several others to fight again. Thanks for the fun charter and I'll see you soon... Capt. Dan

Sight Fishing Reds Jan. 28th 2011

Written by

P1280346With a West wind and a incoming tide, conditions were looking good to sight fish some red fish. I met my good friend and client Dave at Pete's Pier just after 10am and we ran to the back country creeks. The tide was only a 2ft high on the charts, which was just enough water to make it back into Ozello. I put the trolling motor down and we immediately saw a few schools of reds. The further we got back into the creeks, there just wasn't quite enough water to make it where I wanted to go. However, Dave hooked up on a nice red with a DOA golden bream jerkbait, but this was the only one to make it to the boat. Thanks for the fun afternoon and we'll do it again soon... Capt. Dan

P1240341Finally back on the water! Between having the flu and constant terrible weather, it's been a tough for me to make it out. Today was a different story and it was a beautiful day to be on the water. I had my good clients Bill and Mel on board and we went offshore Crystal River to catch a few sheepshead. It was a little bit of a slow start for the first couple hours of the out going tide, but when the tide turned to come in, it was fish on. Live shrimp on a 1/8oz DOA cal jig head was the ticket and with crystal clear water, it made for ideal conditions. Thanks guys for the fun trip and always look forward to our next charter... Capt. Dan
P1070339Another cold day on the Gulf of Mexico. I met Jason, Mike and Kelly at Pete's Pier this morning and with the forecast calling for small craft advisories, I wasn't sure what the day would bring. Well, the forecast was way off and the offshore conditions were nothing more than a light chop. The trout fishing is still a little tough right now, so we opted to target some sheepshead. Like my previous charter, all the location we fished today produced fish and we only took a couple off each structure. Blue Water Bait and Tackle live shrimp did the rick and the guys are taking their catch to Peck's Old Port Cove for a fresh fish dinner. Thanks again for the fun time and we'll see you soon... Capt. Dan
