A Little Scouting. Dec. 15th 2010

Written by

PC150317With a break in the weather, Capt. Mark Zorn and I did a little scouting for some upcoming charters. Christmas time is going to be busy and having several charters scheduled for the coming weeks, we were on a mission to locate some fish. The last few days have been brutally cold and extremely windy. Sunday and Monday brought seas offshore in excess of 14ft and wind gusts to 40mph. Today was cold, with a morning temperature of 19 degrees, but finally the winds calmed and it was time to get back on the water. Needless to say, the trout were waiting for us down the river and we did extremely well using jigs worked slowly along the bottom. The lady fish kept us busy in between the trout strikes and a few snook were an added bonus. The gulf temperature is 50 degrees and if your planning on going out there, remember a very slow presentation is necessary to get the strikes. Thanks Mark for the fun day and here's yours truly with the first snook of the day... Capt. Dan

PC070308With the weather being cold and blustery, it's been tough to get on the water. Rescheduling charters is never fun, but for the best interest and safety of my clients I have had to do so. I asked my good friend Dr. Mckeeny of Mckeeny Chiropractic center this evening to join me and see if we could find a winter snook in the safety of the river. I just had to get on the water, so we bundled up and had some action. There is no shortage of lady fish in the river and as usual for this time of year, they can be a nuisance after the first 100 are hooked. We did have a few snook strikes and a couple followed our plugs up to the boat, but only one made its way for a quick photo. The air temperature was in the upper 30's and after three hours we called it a day.  Thanks Doc. for the company and we'll go again soon... Capt. Dan

PC040306Winter is officially here and the start of December has been cold. I have had to reschedule several charters due to the weather and for the upcoming week it looks like I am going to have to do the same. However, on a good note we had a geat couple days out of Homosassa. Myself and Captains Mark Zorn and William Toney fished the Craft party to a great couple days of catching some sheepshead, trout and grouper. Friday we fished a 1/2 day and shore lunch combination and Capt. Z had the top boat with 10 keeper trout, while William and I brought in some tasty sheeepshead for our famous shore lunch. Saturday it was just Capt. Z and I, so we ran offshore and the trout bite was as good as it gets. In less than 30 minutes both boats had their limit and we released several other slot and over slot trout. After the fantastic trout action, I ran offshore and trolled up a few grouper and Capt. Z stayed inshore and did great on the red fish. Thanks to Frank, Bo, Ed and Bill for a great couple of days and awesome job guys on all the fish... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam! Nov. 30th 2010

Written by
PB300300Today we had the big three; snook, trout and red fish. I met Murry, Bart and Shane at Pete's Pier this morning and made a quick stop in the river to see if the snook were still around. In a few cast we hooked up, and Shane brought a beautiful snook in the boat. In the same area, we had several other followers and a few miss the plug right next to the boat:one even jumped completely out of the water and he was in the 30" class. Next, we ran to the creeks and we found the red fish. 19 red fish made their way to the boat and they were definitely on the feed today. Free lined live shrimp was the ticket and it was one of the best red fishing days I have seen in a while. The guys wanted to add some trout to the mix, so we ran to the 6ft grass flats and caught a mixture of silver and speckled trout with a few mackerel. It was a fantastic day and a great change of pace for me from all the grouper fishing I have been doing; I had a great time myself. Thanks for a fun time and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan
