Mr. Emory's, Big Three...

A wonderful day with Mr. Emory from Pennsylvania on board and he did awesome. He and I began the day jigging for trout and it was really good. On two stops, we had several keeper trout and released the others. The wind wasn't as bad as yesterday and grouper was requested; so we headed West. Emory held on the rod tight in grouper land and he turned two fine gags for his limit. To wrap up the day, he caught his first red fish on a free lined live shrimp and I thank you so much for the great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Hat Trick...

The big three today with the Coleman family; trout, reds and grouper. The day began jigging up some trout with Mirrolure Lil' Johns along the rock bars and the action was great. The team brought 10 nice trout to the boat, plus a pompano and a whiting. Next on the agenda, we ran offshore with some bumpy seas and found a nice limit of gags. The grouper action was great and the guys turned some good ones. With the tides running right, we added a pair of red fish in the Salt river area to end the day. Good as it gets and I thank you both for the awesome day... Capt. Dan

Sunday Gags...

Grouper Sunday with Marilyn and David and the team did great. It was pretty rough this morning and I had my doubts that we were going to be able to grouper fish. I tried some real shallow locations and had no luck. It wasn't looking good, but finally the wind laid down around 1pm and we headed West. I made the run to 28ft of water and the bite was on. The team brought in a fine limit of gags and the day was made. I thank you both as always and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Grouper w/ Colton...

Once a year I get the pleasure of taking one of my best friends son Colton fishing and today was his day. Colton has never really been grouper fishing and we stayed shallow and did great. Colton is an accomplished bass fisherman, so we cast some plugs for the gags. We had a double digit day, with mostly shorts sized ones. However, we finished strong with a pair of keepers and he did great. Good job buddy and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Family Fun....

A little bit of family fun today with my wife Becky. I always take a couple days off around the holidays to make sure she gets a chance to fish. Well, today was our day and we brought in some fine grouper. We did some exploring and the day was absolutely beautiful. Blue mackerel was the flavor of the day and here's the big one of our trip...

Crystal River Trout & Gags...

Good as it gets today with the Worthington team. The guys had an awesome November day and started it off tackling some gags. We covered some of my favorite locations and the bite was on. The new color Rapala CD 14 plugs were the ticket and it was impressive how well the fish were eating them. The team had six gags by noon and we jigged up some fine trout to end our afternoon. A wonderful time and I thank you all for the excellent day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

Woooo Weee.... It was a cold one today with Ross and Mindy on board and there was even a little ice on the boat this morning. I was a bit worried with the front passing, but the bite was really good. The winter time trout locations started our day and we did very well. The team and I put fifteen beautiful Crystal River trout on ice and we then ran a bit offshore. The grouper bite was pretty good with a couple keepers, plus several shorts for our time offshore. The nice surprise and bonus were, the triple tail. The triple tail were free floating and it was tricky to catch them. However, we found a couple that would stay up and they are always a welcomed catch. It's been a long time since I've seen you guys and I thank you both for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Grouper...

After yesterday's very successful day of grouper prospecting, I was anxious to have Joe and Joanne on board and head to the grouper grounds. Today was great and the weather, equally well. The grouper action was good, except for the usually dead hour in between tide changes. The husband and wife team fished with me several times this fall season.I'm very grateful to you both and we've made several great memories. I look forward to seeing you in the spring and enjoy all the fillets... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Fun...

I don't get many days during grouper season to go exploring, but today my good long time friend Jason joined me to go "looking" and tackle some gags. We left the dock at 9am and headed offshore. On just about every charter I run, I'm constantly looking for new good bottom and marking such places. Today was recon day and the various marks I've made, paid off. He and I found a handful of good little spots and we were rewarded with a limit of fine gags. A very fun day for me and I really enjoyed it bud... Capt. Dan
