Family Day Trout. Oct. 22nd 2011

Written by
PA220850I had the Wood family on board today out of Crystal River and the trout bite was much better. Leaving from Pete's Pier at 8am we began the day working some oyster bar cuts, kelp grass patches and catching a few trout. The morning bite was slow and the gulf water temperature was registering 64 degrees. By noon the water temperature raised a couple degrees and we made a run south to some shallow "yellow" hard bottom areas. It was a great decision and in a couple drifts, we added several more keeper trout to the cooler. The DOA holographic watermelon shrimp was today's top producer. The shrimp was rigged with the traditional hook and belly weight combination and a oval deadly combo cork, to call the fish in. Thank you all for the fun time and enjoy tonights fresh fish dinner... Capt. Dan

PA210849For you folks that don't live locally, the last three days have consisted of high winds, rain and dropping temperatures. Having to cancel three charters due to these conditions; today I was back at the office and ready to fish. Meeting Scott and Ryan this morning to chilly 50 degree temperatures, we ran out the Crystal River in search of some red fish. It took a little scouting around, but we found an outside point with a couple keepers on it and in a couple minutes, the guys had their limit. Next on the agenda, was to target some trout. The trout bite was extremely slow today and we did catch a couple of keepers, but for the amount of time we worked for them, it was a tough day. We had plenty of action with the short trout and the DOA glow shrimp was today's bait of choice. Thanks guys for the fun time and here is Scott with the first red fish of the day... Capt. Dan

PA170846We just finished the Homosassa Fishing Clubs annual fall Jamboree and it was another great success. Myself and fellow Homosassa Guides Association members Mark Zorn, William Toney, Rick Spratt, Jim Long, Don Chancey, Gary Cox, Todd Corneillie, Fred Lyles, and Charlie Harris fished over 25 members to a couple days of taregting trout and red fish. The tides weren't the best for red fishing, but a few were caught and fantastic numbers of trout were brought in. I had John, Butch, and Jack on board for the first day and my crew did great bringing nine keeper trout back to the dock, for Sunday's catch. Monday was a 1/2 day of fishing and ending the afternoon with our special shore lunch. I had the Green family on board for Monday and the father and son team had an outstanding catch of twelve keeper trout before we returned to the island for lunch. It was a fun couple of days and I thank all the members for the wonderful time. We'll see you soon... Capt. Dan
PA140840Chris, Mark, Brian and Ryan had it as good as it gets inshore out of Crystal River today. Leaving from Pete's Pier this morning our original plan was to try and find some grouper, but the wind was blowing hard out of the North and our next game plan was to target the inshore species. It was a low tide for the majority of the day, so it was DOA deadly combos rigged with root beer holographic shrimp and Mirrolure Lil' Johns to keep the trout on the end of our lines. We fished the shallow 3ft grass flats with spotty bottom and had a great day catching plenty of trout. It was going to be a late tide for red fish, but we ran back to the North to get a jump on the tide and with a little hunting, the guys caught some beautiful red fish. It was one of the funniest charters I've had and you guys were really great. Thanks for the fun time and congratulations on your outstanding catch... Capt. Dan
