Grouper and Reds...

The end of the 2016 grouper season with the Novinger family. It looks like the weather is going to keep us off the water for the last two days, but we finished the season strong. I had a fun day with the family as we bottom fished and turned some nice gags with three making the cut, before the wind picked up and chased us inshore. The stiff SW wind and the new moon incoming tide brought in some good water and we red fished the afternoon. The team had a double digit day, reached their limit and called it a day. Thank you all and I'll see you soon... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Whopper...

Steady grouper action today for Janice and Henry on board and they had their first taste of grouper fishing. I've had the pleasure of having this couple on board several times before and we've always inshore fished. Well, today they caught close to twenty grouper and it was a fun day. The fog was thick and the Rapala's did their job. Janice had big fish honors with a 20lber and they are already to go again next year. Thank you both and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Trout & Gags...

I had the pleasure of having Shane solo on board and for today's trip, we caught some nice trout and grouper. The trout bite started our day and we caught a bunch, but most were on the short side. We worked as a team and eventually put some nice keepers on ice. For the rest of the day, we cast plugs and had some grouper action. Most were little guys, but we bagged a fine keeper for our efforts. I had a great day with you my man and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Christmas Gags...

A little family fun today for the Christmas vacation down time I took off and my wife and I, went out of Homosassa and caught some nice gags. I was able to do some exploring, and we found a couple nice honey holes. The short gags were especially active today, but we weeded though them and brought in some real nice keepers. Always a fun day with my bride and we'll be having some grouper dinners for ourselves this week... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A nice mix on today's trip with Lee and Clell on board. We made our way down the Crystal River and began jigging up some trout. The trout action was superb and today, glow colored Lil' Johns did the trick. My original plan next was to troll for grouper, but i made a quick stop just to see if the sheepshead are around and biting. Well folks, yes they are; but not super aggressive yet. The team did catch five nice ones and we made our way to catch some grouper. Some big ones got the best of us today, but we turned a nice keeper and several shorts for the afternoon. A great time and I'll look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Chilly Gags...

Another cold ride on the way to the grouper grounds, but the weather was quite better for us today. Jim, Bill and Roland were my guest and grouper was on the menu. We ran to one of my favorite areas and had a great day on the grouper. The shorts kept us busy until the tide got right, but the keepers started coming out soon after. We lost a couple good ones too; a terrific trip and I thank you... Capt. Dan

The Lone Grouper...

Well, the weather got us today and it was pretty cold and rough on the big pond. I had the Class family on board and grouper were are target. The seas were rolling pretty hard and limited us on where we could go. I was fortunate enough though, to put Sandra on her first grouper and it was a beauty. Unfortunately, there wasn't much action afterwards; so we called it a day hoping for better conditions next time. I thank you all and I'll see you in the future... Capt. Dan

Monday Trout & Gags...

Always a great day with Dan, Joe and Lauren on board and these gentlemen had a good one. We reached the gulf to absolute glass clam conditions and started the trip jigging up a fine catch of trout. Glow colored MirrOlure Lil' Johns were the bait of the day and they definitely kept the rods bent on the trout. Having the gulf so calm, we ran quite a bit offshore to the 30ft range and found a couple nice gags. The bite was slow and I hit several places before we found them, but we hung in there and it was a great day. I thank you guys and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Mike's Trout & Gags...

A couple days of down time for me as I hurt my back a bit on Wednesday. A couple days of rest, I'm feeling better and had a great day with Mike on board. Today was a beautiful day out of Crystal River and the trout and grouper action was good. The trout started our day along the rock bars and glow colored Lil' Johns did the trick. After a fine catch of trout, we covered some ground offshore and trolled up a pair of gags to wrap up the day. I had a great time Mike and great job my man... Capt. Dan
