Homosassa Reds Sept. 9th 2010

Written by
P9090117Another fantastic day at the Homosassa fishing Club. Myself and Captains Mark Zorn, Rick Spratt, Charlie Harris, Jim Long and Mike Locklear fished the Dr. Kokko party to a busy fish catching day. We fished a 1/2 day trout fishing in the morning, took a break for a shore lunch with all the fixings and then finished up the day red fishing. The trout fishing was steady in the morning and Eric and John had 6 keepers before lunch. The DOA shrimp in the stark naked color was the hot color. After lunch, the tide was ripping in and we found the red fish. We boated 8 reds up to 26" and once again a Blue Water Bait and Tackle live shrimp did the trick. Thanks guys for the awesome day and here is Eric with the big red fish of the day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River 1/2 Day Sept. 8th 2010

Written by
P9080114I met Rick and Sue today for a 1/2 day charter out of Crystal River. We had a later tide today, so I suggested leaving at 10am and it turned out to be the perfect decision. We spent the first hour and a half throwing some DOA deadly combos, and caught several trout. A couple made it over the 15"mark and kept a few for dinner. Next, off the creeks and the red fishing was on. We boated 13 red fish on 3 points and a free lined live shrimp was the ticket. It was a great afternoon and made it back to Pete's Pier just after 2pm. Thank you both for the fun time and here is today's catch... Capt. Dan

P9050111With September being a fantastic month for red fish; Jim ,Terry and Jimmy came back up for a fun charter out of Homosassa. I have fished these guys several times now and they say each trip gets even better. We met at Macrae's at 8am, ran out the little Homosassa and immediately found a school of red fish. The first four cast were hook ups but they all fell a little shy of making it to the keeper size. Finally Jimmy hooked a beautiful 26" keeper and the rest soon followed. After our limit of reds were ran offshore caught a few trout and mixed up the day catching a bonus grouper. The big fights of the day was when Terry and Jimmy hooked into two large rays in the 50lb range and gave them a workout they won't soon forget. Thanks guys for another successful charter and here is today's mixed catch of red fish, trout and grouper... Capt. Dan

P9040108With a special request from Mrs. Capt. Dan, I kept Saturday open for her to catch a few grouper. I wanted to check out some of my north numbers and with prime grouper season is just a few weeks away,I was anxious to see if anybody was home. We loaded up the live well with pinfish, passed the spoil banks ( which looked like a parking lot) and ran out to 20ft of water. We stopped on a few rocks and nothing much was there other than a few shorts. This is to be expected because larger grouper this time of year are typically holding on ledges rather than isolated rocks. Our next stop was a good break and we found the keepers. We boated 7 keepers but only kept two for a couple meals. We safely released the others for my upcoming charters. The fall is looking good and here is Becky with a couple nice gags... Capt. Dan
