Crystal River 1/2 Day Sept. 8th 2010

Written by
P9080114I met Rick and Sue today for a 1/2 day charter out of Crystal River. We had a later tide today, so I suggested leaving at 10am and it turned out to be the perfect decision. We spent the first hour and a half throwing some DOA deadly combos, and caught several trout. A couple made it over the 15"mark and kept a few for dinner. Next, off the creeks and the red fishing was on. We boated 13 red fish on 3 points and a free lined live shrimp was the ticket. It was a great afternoon and made it back to Pete's Pier just after 2pm. Thank you both for the fun time and here is today's catch... Capt. Dan

P9050111With September being a fantastic month for red fish; Jim ,Terry and Jimmy came back up for a fun charter out of Homosassa. I have fished these guys several times now and they say each trip gets even better. We met at Macrae's at 8am, ran out the little Homosassa and immediately found a school of red fish. The first four cast were hook ups but they all fell a little shy of making it to the keeper size. Finally Jimmy hooked a beautiful 26" keeper and the rest soon followed. After our limit of reds were ran offshore caught a few trout and mixed up the day catching a bonus grouper. The big fights of the day was when Terry and Jimmy hooked into two large rays in the 50lb range and gave them a workout they won't soon forget. Thanks guys for another successful charter and here is today's mixed catch of red fish, trout and grouper... Capt. Dan

P9040108With a special request from Mrs. Capt. Dan, I kept Saturday open for her to catch a few grouper. I wanted to check out some of my north numbers and with prime grouper season is just a few weeks away,I was anxious to see if anybody was home. We loaded up the live well with pinfish, passed the spoil banks ( which looked like a parking lot) and ran out to 20ft of water. We stopped on a few rocks and nothing much was there other than a few shorts. This is to be expected because larger grouper this time of year are typically holding on ledges rather than isolated rocks. Our next stop was a good break and we found the keepers. We boated 7 keepers but only kept two for a couple meals. We safely released the others for my upcoming charters. The fall is looking good and here is Becky with a couple nice gags... Capt. Dan
P9030104I met two great guys today for a 1/2 day charter out of Crystal River. Jason and Adam met me at Pete's Pier for some inshore fishing. We loaded up at 8am and off to the creeks for some red fish. It didn't take long to hook up, and our first point produced 5 beautiful red fish. Free lined live shrimp did the trick. Next, we ran out to the deeper grass flats and put several speckled trout and a few silvers into the cooler. It was steady action and the usual mixed bag of sea bass, grouper, lady fish etc... kept us busy. A combination of DOA shrimp and Berkley gulps were the baits of choice. We were back at the marina just after noon and I thanks you both for the great morning. Here are the guys with today's catch... Capt. Dan
