    My boat is a custom one of a kind Proline 24 Bay

    I designed it and specially it built for my chartering business right here in Homosassa. It handels the shallow flats and offshore seas with ease and it's an extremely comfortable dry ride. It's powered by the finest; a 225 Mercury Optimax Saltwater series engine.

    A legendary skiff and "THE" tarpon skiff for fishing the Crystal River & Homosassa River area.

    I have it custom rigged with dual 109 lb thrust 36 volt trolling motors, elevated casting platform and powered by the finest - a 115 Pro XS Mercury Optimax.

What a difference a day makes. Today the gulf hit the magic 60 degree mark and it was like some one hit a light switch. The were a few schools of glass minnows, several mackerel hitting the surface and the pin fish were stealing our baits. I had the Fellows family on board out of Crystal River and we caught a mixed bag. Targeting the offshore rock piles we caught black sea bass, mackerel, sheepshead and a few flounder. The water was the clearest I've seen yet, but the sheepshead didn't feed as well as they have been. On one location we saw well over several dozen large sheepshead, but I believe they had spawning on there minds instead of eating. It was great to see a variety of species and P2180379today's catch is one of the best for good eats. Thanks to Alan, Karen, Pete and Alan for a fun day... Capt. Dan

P2170374I know there hasn't been much variety in my recent trips, but in the coming weeks that will soon change. Today I had the Powell family on board to experience the ever reliable sheepshead bite. It was quite foggy this morning as we eased out the Crystal River, but when we hit the mouth of the river, it cleared considerably. We arrived at our destination and the rest was history. Several hefty sheepshead made there way into the cooler and it was another great day in the books. The gulf is approaching the 60 degree mark and we're going to see some big changes shortly. Thanks to you all for a fun time and hope to see you soon.... Capt. Dan

New Best! Feb. 16th 2011

P2160367Today we set the bar for the biggest sheepshead I've had on the boat and the overall quality in size. I had Dale from Wisconsin on board for his annual Ferbruary trip to Crystal River. The pressure was on for me because his family requested fish for a fish fry, so we were off to the sheepshead grounds once again. The seas were slick calm today, and it was an easy ride offshore. 11 keeper sheepshead made there way into the cooler and we had a total weight of almost 30lbs. It was a great day to remember and I thank you Dale for a fun time. Look forward to our trip next year and congratulations on the big sheepie... Capt. Dan

Ice and Sheepies. Feb. 13th 2011

Written by
P2130365Another cold start on the Crystal River this morning. Ice covered the boat once again, but the upcoming week looks much warmer and it's forecasted to be great fishing conditions. Today I had my great clients Mischel and Earl on board and they wanted to experience the sheepshead bite we have been having. We ran offshore and fished a variety of structure ranging from 5ft to 10 ft and caught several sheepshead. The bite was a little slow to start, and I attribute that to the gulf dropping 7 degrees in the last three days. However, around mid morning and beautiful sunny skies, the fish turned on and it was a great afternoon. Thank you both for another great day on the water and I'll see you soon... Capt. Dan
