Grouper w/ the Mayor....

Finally the weather has changed and it was good to get back out. On today's trip I had the pleasure of having Crystal River's Mayor, Joe Meek on board and his family. He's been wanting to fish with me for such a long time and I had a opening and they were ready to go. I took the guys shallow water grouper digging and they loved it. We fished some small ledges and sent down the pin fish. The team totaled over 20 gags with a couple real nice keepers for their trip. I thank you all and you did a great job on the fish... Capt. Dan

Thank You....

Hello everyone and I want to thank you all who took the time to vote in our Citrus County Chronicles Best of the Best awards. I was fortunate to find out today I won Honorable Mention this year and I'm so blessed to be thought of so highly here in Citrus County. It means so much and once again I thank you all - I'll see you on the water soon... Capt. Dan

Waiting on the Weather...

Not to much to report over the last couple days. The weather has me landlocked and I'm hoping to get out by the later part of the week. In the mean time I'm tying flies and getting ready for my month long vacation in Wyoming for July. I'm super excited and especially after missing last year due to my medical procedures I had to do. I'll check in soon and good fishing to you all....

Yes lightning does strike twice and that's exactly what we experienced today with Dan and Roy for day two. Today's charter was exactly the same as yesterday's trip and the grouper were in a great mood. The team turned some good ones with a 14lber being the largest. I made a stop on the way home on the permit area and we made it happen as Roy landed a beauty to wrap up the day. A tremendous couple of days despite the June heat and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

First Season Gags...

A break from the tarpon grind and Roy and Dan were my first clients to tackle the opening season gags. Well, they sure didn't disappoint and the team did great. We used live pin fish and sent them down on bottom rigs to turn the grouper . The water is exceptionally clear, so I backed off my leader size and it made a difference. On the way home after a fine limit of grouper, I made a stop at an area I've been seeing permit and the guys said go for it captain; and let me catch my first permit. It was a beauty at 12lbs and you can see the pictures on my Crystal River Fishing Facebook page. A great day and I thank you both....Capt. Dan
