PB030927Once again, what a difference the weather can make for fishing. Yesterday, breezy conditions and today, it was a beautiful day as one could hope for. I had the Powers' family on board out of Pete's Pier Marina and I was rigged for the inshore and offshore species. Running out the Salt River and noticing ideal offshore conditions, we were grouper bound. I haven't tried my North locations and with the calm seas and much cleaner water, I knew it was going to be fantastic. Trolling the 15ft depth range and using Rapala x-raps, the grouper bite was spectacular. Having our eight fish limit and several over 12lbs, all I can say is "what a wonderful day."  We picked up a few trout on the way in to finish out the great day and I thank you all very much... Capt.

Crystal River Tough One. Nov. 2nd 2011.

Written by
PB020902It was a bit of a challenge due to the weather on the Crystal River today. Gusty East winds and extreme low tides, were our less than favorable conditions we had to contend with. Janet, Brian, Dana and Roy we in town and these couples ranging from Texas to Maine, were ready to give it a try. Targeting trout was the species of the day and we actually caught a lot of fish; However, most were just a little short on one end and were released to fight another day. The top baits of the day were the glow DOA shrimp and Mirrolure Lil' JOhns in the watermelon color.  The group had a good catch for tonight's fresh fish dinner and I always enjoy having you all on board. I'll see you next time and thanks again for the great day... Capt. Dan

Snook Saved the Day. Oct. 29th 2011

Written by
PA290898We knew going into today's charter, it was going to be a tough one. Rain in the morning, and an approaching cold front; these were not the ideal fishing conditions one could hope for. However, my great clients Mishel and Earl were game for giving it a  try and we made the best of a windy situation. Making a run to the intake canal in hopes of trolling up a grouper, was our morning plan, but no takers today. We made several passes and with the seas building, we ran to the safety of the river. This is the prime time for targeting snook in the river and the snook didn't disappoint us. We hooked and landed a couple beautiful Crystal River snook while using Mirrolure Mirrodines and Yo-Zuri 3D minnows to make the best of the day. Releasing the snook and numerous mangrove snapper filled out the afternoon and we did just fine despite the conditions. I thank you both very much for the great time and here is Mishel with one of today's Crystal River snook... Capt. Dan
PA280896It wasn't the most beautiful day on the Gulf of Mexico, with the light rain drizzles and over cast skies, but we did find a couple grouper. Dan, Jan, Jay and Cecelia joined me for their annual fall grouper trip out of Crystal River. We made our run offshore to the 20ft range and trolled up some gag grouper. The Rapala x-rap 20's in the fire tiger color was the top producing color today. The bite wasn't nearly as good as yesterday's, but we had enough action to keep our rods bent. I always enjoy this trip with all of you and look forward to seeing you again soon. Here's Jay with the big one from today's charter... Capt. Dan
