Me & Phil...

Not to much different to report today other than it was pretty darn rough out there. I pushed on out to 17ft of water and we found our grouper. It was nice, as all were keepers and no shorts today. Great job Uncle Phil... Capt. Dan

Fun Grouper...

Always a fun time when Uncle Phil is in town and he brought his buddy Chris along for the day. The two guys did awesome turning some fine grouper and I got to play a bit too. We did the same as yesterday, found just a couple trout and wrapped up the day. I thank you both and outstanding job... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Good Groupers....

Another good grouper bite today with Bobby and Bill and the guys did well. We posted up on some shallow ledges and turned three nice ones right away. The bite slowed a little bit and it took me some time to find the fourth one. Soon enough though, he came on board and we headed to the hill. A great morning and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Gags & Reds....

What a great trip today with the ABC supply team. The grouper were absolutely wound up and on one stop we had six beautiful gags on ice. I looked at my watch an it was 9:30am..... got to love it. We had a little bit of tide to work with, so we made a run for some redfish and they bit well. The team caught a limit, released a few others and we called it a day. I thank you all and great job...

Windy Gags....

A rough and I mean rough one today. I normally don't fish when it's this bumpy but Roy travelled all the way from Georgia, so we gave it a try. Some waves over the bow for the morning hours and two gags quickly made their way in the box, but then it dried up a bit. I had to find some calmer water, so I ran south a ways and fished in the 7ft of water range. We stopped on a little rock I have in my hip pocket and the Dan and Roy found the other pair. One on a plug and the other on pin fish. Good job guys in the bumpy conditions and I'll see you next time...  Capt. Dan

Crystal River Gags & Snook....

A really nice day and it was cool one going down the river this morning with temperatures is the 50's. Our first cold snap has arrived and it sure felt good. I had Ricky and Bobby on board and we had a really fun day finding some gags and snook. We began the trip dropping down on some ledges and the guys did a terrific job turning some keeper gags; with no break offs or lost fish. Four grouper made their way in the cooler and we even found a pair of snook on the way home to top off the day. I thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Fast Gags...

Chris was my solo guest today and he put down a quick limit of gags. Chris actually holds the record for largest gag on my boat and he and I always have a blast. We pulled the bait traps and ran to one of my favorite little rocks in 10ft of water. We set up, two baits hit the water and done! A pair of hefty gags came on board. There was a pretty bad storm offshore so we soon headed East, caught a quick snook to wrap up the day and beat the weather home. I thank you buddy and great job... Capt. Dan

On the Water....

So good to be back on the water and Becky and I were able to tackle some gags for a couple hours. I have a little break in my medical schedule right now and I'm feeling good enough to spend a few hours on the water. Today we loaded the rods with Rapala F-18 plugs and we cast to some rocks, for about 10 gags or so. We had a couple keepers, kept one for dinner and really had a nice time. I'll see you on the water soon... Capt. Dan

Sunday Flounder & Gags...

Another hot one! I fished this Sunday with David and JP on board and we fished the morning out going tide. The grouper seem to like the falling water latley and sure enough, we caught some nice ones. I targeted both ledges and rock piles and both produced well and we even picked up a pair of flounder. The tide stopped around noon, we had some fine grouper and we called it a day. I thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Surprise....

A really fun trip with Kevin, Ayindae and John and these guys are a riot. Grouper was requested, so we ran offshore a bit and fished in the 12ft to 15ft depth of water range. The guys did good getting a keeper or two on a couple stops until the tide quit. The big surprise and a first for me, was catching a red snapper in 12ft of water. It was pretty cool to see one way inside like that and who knows, there maybe more coming. I thank you all and look forward to next time... Capt. Dan
