Crystal River Inshore...

Frank, Scott and Chris were my team today out of Crystal River and the trout and red fish cooperated nicely. Our first couple drifts today were fantastic and the trout action with DOA glow jerk baits kicked off the day. I did make a run offshore and we jigged up the usual mixed bag of species. The tide began running in hard around 2pm, so we hit the points and finished up with some quality red fish. A great day and I thank you all so much... Capt. Dan

Seafood Sampler....

We did the old seafood sampler today and caught the quite variety. Today was my last sheepshead trip of the year and we caught a few here and there for the morning hours, plus a triple tail. It sure was a good season and thank you everyone for the great memories. Next up, we ran back inshore, tackled a couple trout and Spanish mackerel while casting jigs. To end the day, a couple red fish but a bend in our rods and it was another beautiful day on the big pond. Thank you both and let's do it again sometime.... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Perfection...

You couldn't of ordered a more beautiful day and was it ever fantastic. Today out of Macrae's on the Homosassa River, Dan, Gary and Lauren joined me for some inshore trout and reds. The trout action was real good as the tide rolled in, but we had to wait for the water to get going to turn them on. The team brought in a beautiful limit of hefty trout on DOA jerk baits and then we stopped on a hungry school of red fish, to wrap up the day. As good as it gets and I thank you guys for the great time... Capt. Dan

A great time with Jim, Ron and Lauren out of Crystal River today and we had a nice mix for the day. Our trip began jigging a bit offshore and we had the variety show going on. Trout, cobia, grouper, lady fish, etc... kept our rods bent. The trout bite wasn't to hot, but we caught a few. The tide started rolling in and it got right for red fishing. The reds were on and in a couple stops the guys brought in a beautiful limit of red fish. We did end the day on one more drift and added a couple more trout to the catch and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

Girls Team....

The wind swapped today and it sure turned the fish on. Kathy, Stefanie, and Riley were my team and they did awesome. I got on the late season sheepshead for the start of the day and they secured a fine catch. The sheepshead bite is about over, as it should as we end March. I did find a couple triple tail, but they sure didn't want to cooperate. We left the triple tail and made quite the run to red fish land and ended the day with a beautiful limit of red fish. You all were so great and I hope to do it again soon... Capt. Dan

Tough Windy Trout...

Not an easy one today with the low water and windy conditions, but the Miller team caught some nice trout for the day. The guys were here on spring break and we loving the warmer weather than Michigan. I couldn't do to much with the conditions, as trout fishing was going to be our theme. We stayed inshore off the keys using jerk baits and caught our trout. The fish were concentrated in little areas and we picked up a few each drift. The white caps made it tough, but we had a fun time. I thank you all and I hope to see you again next time... Capt. Dan

Team Lady Angler...

A super fun time today with the Ann, Olivia, Tia and Lauren from Settin' the Hook and Lady Angler Apparel out of the Plantation on Crystal River. It was a windy day, but we stayed inshore and did very well with some trout and a few bonus snook. The trout were all caught in the shallow water on DOA glow jerk baits and the snook too. We had a tough one on red fish, as we only had one hooked up, but unfortunately came unbuttoned at boat-side. I had a blast with you all and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

New Record...

What an incredible day with Joe and Joanne on board and it was amazing. The sheepshead bite was fantastic as we ran to a couple different area's and the bite was on. We kept plenty for dinner, plus released numerous others to be caught again. Next up, we made a long run towards Homosassa for triple tail and did very well. The team caught some good one's, plus Joe had a sea monster at 18lbs. He raised the bar for the boat and I thank you both for a wonderful day... Capt. Dan

Always a fun time with the Worthington family and the guys did fantastic. An offshore run started our day and the sheepshead cooperated nicely. On two stops, we put a nice batch of sheepshead on ice; and then we went triple tail looking. We found three fine triple tail and a free lined live shrimp did the trick. A couple trout were added to the mix and a mack, to finish up the day. A beautiful day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

A beautiful day and a fun crew with Michelle and Michelle on board and we caught some fine triple tail. The trip began dropping down on some late season sheepshead and with the passing cold front, the action continues to be quite good. The ladies brought in a beautiful catch of sheepshead and released several gags grouper as well. Next though we went looking for triple tail and we found some beauty's. Live free lined shrimp worked very well and a couple were approaching 10lbs. A great day and I look forward to seeing you all again... Capt. Dan
