P7050608A busy fish catching morning out of Crystal River and the deep spotty bottom areas continue to produce. I picked up Mike, Max and Chelsea down the river at the family home and we were offshore bound. I made one long run out to 15ft of water and the trout bite was on. Three and four on at a time made for some great action and several keepers came aboard throughout the day. Today's top colors were the DOA holographic root beer and stark naked shrimp. We released a few drag screaming sharks and numerous sea bass to fill out the morning. Just after noon we called it a day, beat the storms in and just after this picture was taken, the rain came down. Thanks everyone for the great time and enjoy tonight's dinner... Capt. Dan

Holiday Trout. July 3rd 2011

Written by

P7030605Today was day two for the holiday weekend and I was ready to run back offshore and put my clients on some deep water trout. Rich, Vanessa, Jeff and John met me at Pete's Pier at 9am and we were off to the deep spotty bottom grass patches. In no time, Vanessa hooked up on a keeper trout and the rest of the gang quickly followed. The group only wanted to keep a few for a meal, so we kept a couple and released several others. Today I fished one the deepest locations that I target trout on and at one point we were in 17ft of water. It takes some time to get out there, but the fish are there and in very good numbers. Today's top producing color was once again the DOA holographic root beer shrimp on a 1/8oz jig head. Thanks everyone for the fun day and look forward to seeing you all again soon... Capt. Dan

P7020601The good weather has returned and just in time for the 4th of July weekend. John, Krista and Shaun met me at Pete's Pier this morning and the group was ready to catch some fish. We ran offshore and spent the majority of the day targeting trout. Using DOA holographic root beer shrimp, new penny gulps; the crew put 10 beautiful trout in the cooler and released numerous under slot trout throughout the day. The usual suspects for the mixed bag were also keeping us busy including sharks, sea bass, lady fish, blue fish etc... With enough fish for the fish dinner, we made a stop in the creeks and picked up a perfect 26" red fish to end the day. Returning back to the dock was a bit of a challenge with all the holiday boat traffic, but we eventually made it back to the marina. Thanks to everyone for the fun and exciting day and look forward to seeing you again soon... Capt. Dan

Rained Out. June. 30th 2011

Written by
P6300597It was short trip today out of Crystal River and with a 70% chance of rain, the forecast didn't look good. I picked up the Boone family at the Plantation Inn resort and the gang was game for giving it a try. We ran down river to some of the near shore oyster bars, made one quick drift and we picked up about a dozen trout. We had two keepers right away and with the dark skies closing in fast, we headed back home. We just beat the rain when we returned back to shore, and the rest of the day was a wash out. Let's hope for better conditions next time and here's the Boone family with one of their trout. Thanks again... Capt. Dan
