Seafood Sampler...

A beautiful day with a fun team again with Ann, Lauren, Kayle and Brandon being my guests. We had a ball on the rock piles catching a mix of trout, grunts, snapper, grouper, etc... on live shrimp. The action is usually just about every drop and with young anglers on board, there's nothing better. The tide turned around noon, and we finished up our day on the mangrove points finding a couple red fish. I thank you all and I can't wait until next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix.....

An absolute awesome day with Scott and Johnny and the father and son team did great. The inshore trout action started our trip and using DOA jerk baits around the bars got our day going. We caught several fine keepers, a bonus flounder and we then headed offshore. The offshore action was fabulous with grouper, grunts, and trigger fish, but the sheepshead were not to happy. However, Scott picked up a fine triple tail and turned some hefty gags on light tackle for an exciting afternoon. A great day guys and I can't wait until next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River, Solid Day....

A solid day's catch with the Coleman team today and these gentlemen did outstanding. Lee, Richard and Clell all began the day jigging up some fine trout, and Richard had big fish honors with one at 4lbs. Bourbon colored Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day and we then pushed on out to sheepshead land. The team and I anchored on a nice piece of hard bottom and the bite was on. Sheepshead and grouper kept us busy and the action was truly great. A wonderful and day and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Slow trout, but hot Reds....

Well, the trout bite was on lock down for us today, but the afternoon red fish action was good. I had the pleasure of having the Keeler party on board for the day and we had a fun time inshore. The gusty NE wind was up, so we didn't make it to grouper land. The keeper trout were kind of elusive, but we found a couple; plus several shorts throughout the day. The tide finally started rolling in and we ended our day with some beautiful red fish. A great day with you all and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Variety...

What a mix of species today for the Surber family. Gene, Darlene and Hannah were my guest and we covered the entire basis. The inshore red fish action was good, plus the trout and it was a great start to the day. Just before 10:30am, we made our way offshore and added some more goodies to the day. Grouper, snapper, mackerel, cobia, bonito, etc... It was a fun one. The grouper bite was a bit slow, but in between grouper drops the other species kept us entertained. I thank you all for the fun time and here's Gene with the first Bonito of the upcoming fall season... Capt. Dan

Operation Outdoor Freedom....

A very special day for myself and several other members of the Homosassa Guides Association, as we had the honor of fishing the wounded warriors today. This was a great day and we ensured a great time to make a memorable day for them and their families. Fishing was a bit tough, but we all caught a mix of trout, flounder, Spanish mackerel, pompano and sheepshead. The team and I prepared an outstanding shore lunch and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day and thank you all for what you have done for us. We look forward to next year... Capt. Dan

On the Flats...

Back to the inshore scene today with a couple day break, due to high winds and small craft advisory's. We had a beautiful day on the flats today though; with Bill, Jerry and Vern and the team did outstanding. We targeted trout on the shallow kelp grass patches with DOA deadly combos and the trout action was quite good. Every drift we would pick up a couple keepers and in just a couple hours, the guys had fifteen beautiful trout in the cooler. A couple bonus mackerel and a tasty flounder were added to the mix and as always; I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Oct. 16th & 17th....

Two great days fishing the Euart party out of the Homosassa fishing club with the Captains teams of Zorn, Toney, Long and Spratt. The trout action was quite good in the kelp patches in 3ft of water off Homosassa Bay and glow DOA jerk baits did the trick. I did pick up a couple grouper on Saturday casting plugs on the shallow rocks and even had one rip the hooks right out of a Rapala f18 right next to the boat. Sunday was another good trout day and we wrapped up the afternoon with a fine Homosassa Shore Lunch. Always a great trip and we look froward to seeing you next time... Capt. Dan

A super slam for us today and we were fortunate to land a variety of species. I had the Coleman family on board out of the Plantation on Crystal River and we did well. The inshore bite was good just like yesterday and we caught a variety from red fish, trout, snook and flounder hitting the points with free lined shrimp. The team caught a nice mix of inshore species, but the weather was looking perfect for running offshore; so we headed West. We reached the grouper grounds and the bite was very good. From trolling, to bottom fishing - the bite was great. An excellent day with you both and I thank you for the fun time... Capt. Dan

The Rocks...

Dan and Jordan were on board again for day two out of the Plantation on Crystal River and it was a good one. The father and son team caught a beautiful limit of gag grouper using live pin fish on the shallow rock piles. We fished the 10ft range and did quite well. A mixed bag of other species also came on board using live shrimp on Hank Brown jig heads. That's always a blast and you never know what the next drop will bring. I thank you both for two very memorable days and I look forward to seeing you guys again soon... Capt. Dan
