A Crystal River Gator! April 23rd 2011

P4230482What a great trout bite today! We had a steady SE wind which made for perfect drifts and hungry trout. I had Brian and Becky on board and they had a busy fish catching day out of Crystal River. We targeted the deeper spotty bottom areas using DOA near clear shrimp and new penny gulps for our success. Another variety of mixed species came aboard today including cobia, trout, sea bass, sharks, mackerel, blue fish, and the list goes on. The big highlight of the day was Becky landing this 5lb gator trout which was just shy of 26". Thanks to you both for a fun day and look forward to seeing you for grouper season this fall... Capt. Dan
P4220477A breezy start to the day and we had a little inshore, offshore action. Today was Mishel and Earls last of there three day charter with me and for the last day, Earls brother Bruce joined us. We started the day trying to hook in to a tarpon. There were several fish rolling in the area we were fishing, but no takers today. We left the tarpon and ran offshore and tried our luck at some grouper. Well, we lost some, landed some and a few big rays and sharks were added to the mix. For the last part of the day we pulled up to a rocky point, free lined some live shrimp and quickly boated four red fish to finish out the day. Thank you both for a great week and Bruce for all the good laughs today. Look forward to seeing you soon and here's Bruce with a shallow water gag... Capt. Dan

Nice Reds... April 20th 2011

P4200476You never know what the day will bring -- and after having a little bit of a tough time yesterday, today was quite a bit different. I had Mishel and Earl on board again for day two of their three day charter week. We started the day trying to run offshore for a grouper, but the the seas were not favorable. For plan B, we set up a couple drifts and caught a few trout. The trout bite was a little slow like yesterday, but we did manage a few keepers that were all safely released to fight another day. The tide was coming in, so we ran inshore with high hopes of finding a couple red fish. Well we did just that, and a couple upper slot red fish made there way into the boat for a quick picture, then swam away in great shape. A free lined live shrimp under a DOA deadly combo cork was the ticket. Thank you both as always for a great time and look forward to seeing you Friday... Capt. Dan

A Little Tough. April 19th 2011

Written by
P4190468A little bit of a tough one out of Crystal River today. I met Karen and Bill at Pete's Pier this morning and the day started with very foggy conditions. We made our way out the river and began catching a few trout. Mostly shorts were on the line, but we did manage a few keepers and we found the gulfs entire lady fish population; well it seemed that way. We did catch a mixed variety and nine different species made there way into the boat. We tried for a red fish with the early afternoon incoming tide, but only could find 1 under slot red. The day turned out to be gorgeous and I thank you both for a great day on the water. Look forward to seeing you soon... Capt. Dan
