P9270793It was a tough one today to get the grouper bite going, but the inshore red fish saved the day. Vic and Bob joined me for a full day charter out of Crystal River and the guys fished hard. After such a great grouper trip yesterday, I knew today was going to be fantastic. Well, the grouper escaped us today and they had lock-jaw. We tried and tried and it just wasn't meant to be. So, for plan B, we ran back to the creeks and in short order, we had our red fish limit. A free lined live shrimp was irresistible to the red fish and we finished up the afternoon catching a few trout to keep the rods bent. Thank you both for a fun time and we'll get the grouper next time... Capt. Dan
P9260789Today is going to be a tough one to beat! Gary and Brad did outstanding catching their grouper and red fish limit on a Crystal River 1/2 day charter. We started the day trying to hook up with a snook, but no takers this morning. Our next stop was the pin fish traps to load up on bait and then target some shallow water grouper ledges. In just two quick stops the guys caught some beautiful gag grouper and with the tide rushing in, we were red fish bound. Running the mangrove shorelines and locating the mullet schools, we immediately hooked up with some beautiful slot sized redfish. The only down side to the day were the rain storms that caught up with us on the way back to the marina (we were soaked). Thank you both for a very fun morning and hope to see you soon... Capt. Dan

P9250785Red fish in the back country, trout on the flats and a little variety offshore jigging; made for an awesome day out of Crystal River. Dave, Kenny and Allen joined me for a full day charter and the guys did great. We began the day putting some quality trout in the boat using DOA deadly combos and the MirrOlure Lil' John combinations. It was tough conditions with no breeze, but we picked up a couple on each drift, along with some flounder,pompano and Spanish mackerel to add to the mix. Around noon we hit the creeks and the red fish were waiting. The guys in short order had a double digit red fish day and finish up up the afternoon adding seven more keeper trout to the cooler. Thanks guys for the fun time and look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan

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
