P9240783A good incoming tide, mullet schools over the rocks and a live shrimp; will just about guarantee a red fish hook up. Joe, Jonathan, Wilson and Bo experienced this first had today with me out of Crystal River. We left the marina, killed a little time catching a few trout while the tide was getting right, and then found our red fish schools. We boated 13 beautiful red fish, kept our limit and released all the rest unharmed. Using 4/0 circle hooks and a free lined live shrimp was the bait of the day. We picked up a couple more trout and chased the mackerel schools to fill out the afternoon. It was just about a perfect day as one could hope for and I thank you all very much. Here's the crew with today's catch... Capt. Dan
P9230781A fun tournament with the Florida Family Insurance group today. Myself and Captains William Toney, Rick Spratt and Jim Long were the hosts to show our guests a fun time out of Crystal River. We met our anglers at Pete's Pier at 8am and I was privileged to have Allen and Amanda on board for the day. We had and outstanding 1/2 day trip and we caught several red fish, pompano, numerous trout and some mackerel to make up our day. My boat had their limit of red fish and three keeper trout to bring back to the dock for a couple meals. Thank you all for a very fun time and look forward to next years trip... Capt. Dan

1/2 day Hot Reds. Sept. 22nd 2011

Written by

P9220778The red fish bite was nothing short of spectacular just south of Crystal River today. Jim, Jimmy and Michelle joined me out of Pete's Pier to a twenty fish red fish day. Working the out side keys and targeting the mullet schools, my crew caught a mixture of slot and under slot red fish. Free lined live shrimp was the hot bait today, but the larger fish came off some fresh cut lizard fish. After the red fish work out, we made a quick drift, caught several trout and 5 of them made it to the cooler. Thank you all for the very fun day and a happy birthday Jimmy... Capt. Dan

P9200776We just finished two outstanding days at the Homosassa Fishing Club. Myself and fellow Homosassa Guides Association Captains Mark Zorn and William Toney made it all happen. We fished the Livsey party to some early morning red fish limits, mid morning trout and finished up the day with a couple fantastic shore lunches. Leaving the dock just before 7am gave us a jump for the early tide red fish bite and a combination of cut mullet and lizard fish put them in the boat. The trout were caught on a mixture of DOA holographic root beer shrimp and the new hot bait, the MirrOlure Lil' John. Thanks to the entire group for a fun couple of days and look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan
