Crystal River Gags & Reds...

A great start to the day on our grouper trip and the gags were biting very well. Terry and Chuck were my guests and they teamed up, sent down some live pin fish and turned some nice grouper. I was only able to hit three spots before the rain storms and wind gusts, chased us inshore. Not to cut the trip short; we finished up with some fine red fish and a great day out of Crystal River is in the books. I thank you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Reds, Gags, Mango's & Macks..

We had another nice variety catch on today's trip with Tony, Ray and Rusty. Our day began on the incoming tide and the team picked up a couple fine red fish. We left the inside as it was smoldering hot, and ran offshore a bit. We had some terrific grouper action on live pin fish and turned a couple nice keepers as well. The guys released numerous fish in the 22" - 23 3/4" range, which is a good sight to see. A mix of grunts, mango's and mackerel filled out the day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Reds & Gags..

Good to be back on the gags! It's definitely not prime grouper season yet, but it's sure is getting better. Bill and Fred were my guests today and the day started on the points targeting the reds. The red fish bite was good and live shrimp did the trick for us. Next though, we made the run offshore in the bumpy seas and found some gags. The grouper bite was surprisingly good and the team turned three nice keepers to show for the day. I thank you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A fun day with Jim on board and he came solo, for a great first time experience. Jim and I began our day on the outgoing tide, catching a couple snook and a fine slot red fish to bend the rod. I didn't have a bunch of tide to work with, but we made it happen. For the rest of our day we did the rock pile game and did well on mangrove snapper and a keeper gag. A nice variety and I thank you Jim... Capt. Dan

1/2 day on the Rocks...

Mr. Dan and his grandson Alek joined me today for a day on the big pond. Today's plan with the tides being what they were, was to fish the rock piles for snapper, grunts and what ever else we could find. Well, the snapper bite was great and the guys free lined live shrimp for their success. I ran a bit deeper to try a grouper ledge and we got broke off, caught a couple shorts and Alek turned a beautiful keeper. The gulf soon got still with nothing happening and the heat was on, so we called it a day. I thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Gags & Reds...

Day one with the Bosworth team and we left Macrae's at 8am and headed to the red fish points. We just set up on the last minutes of the incoming tide and free lined live shrimp in the mullet schools, for a fine limit of mid slot red fish. The guys did great and the rest of our day we jumped rock to rock catching grunts and grouper. The gags were biting, but most were shy of the keeper size, except Will turned a beauty to seal the deal. A fun time and good action; I'll see you all tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Slow Offshore...

It was a toasty one offshore today with Chris, Mike and Kathy on board and the gags were just not in a feeding mood. I jumped around all day hitting some of my favorite bottom structures, but it just wasn't happening. The usual grunts, mango's and macks kept us busy, but the grouper we on lock down. I talked to the deep offshore captains as well, and it was just an off bite kind of day. We did score a nice keeper though and had plenty of goodies with the other fish. Always a fun time and I'll see you all tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

I took a break from the tarpon skiff today and I had the pleasure of having Tim on board and we made our way offshore. Tim's tried several times to go out with me and the weather has always been not in our favor. Today though was fair and we made it happen. I fished the 28ft of water range and we caught a limit of gags, some mangrove snapper and a fine bonus hog fish. Everything was caught bottom fishing and we beat the offshore storm in, just in time. A fine day and I thank you... Capt. Dan

What a nice mix of species today our of Homosassa and Casey and Avery were my guests. I kept it simple today and we headed West to 10ft of water and made some long drifts. The rods were loaded with MirrOlure Lil' Johns and they kept us busy. I really enjoy this type of fishing as it's pretty steady action and every cast is a surprise. I thank you both for a great one and here's Avery with her first trout.... Capt. Dan

Catching Gags...

The Barlow team was with me today and its always a fun day with these guys. Today though, was a bit on the tough side and as tried our luck for red fish for the morning; it just wasn't happening. So, I made the run offshore rock jumping in hopes of cobia and they were tough to come by as well. The grouper bite was quite good and we sure released a bunch of fine gags. I did eventually find a nice group of cobia and we hooked up on two, but unfortunately they came unbuttoned. Sometimes the fish get the best of you, but we still had a fun time and I thank you guys and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan
