Team Sodium....

Good grouper today with Ted and Casey on board and Casey is the owner of Sodium Fishing Gear here in Crystal River. We had a super fun day hitting the shallow water gags and they turned some really nice ones. I fished one of my honey hole ledges and Ted just about got jerked out of the boat on a whopper, but unfortunately the hook pulled on that one. Great job though guys and enjoy the fish... Capt. Dan

Down South Gags...

Another trip down South today with Ian and Michelle and the team did awesome. I stayed shallow and checked a couple other spots I haven't been to in a while and it was great. We knocked down some really nice gags on pin fish and even a surprise cobia that followed a grouper to the surface. We secured a limit, found a new good spot; and released a couple big dogs waiting for next time. I thank you both and terrific job... Capt. Dan

Waller Family...

Holy cow!!! What a great day in grouper land with the Waller family. I took the team down South to some low profile rocks I haven't been to this year and it was game on. We set up, sent down the pin fish and it was absolutely non stop action. The weather was perfect and every body took turns catch some really nice gags. I made a quick stop inshore for a snook and we landed a beauty around 35" and called it a day. I thank you all and what a day to remember... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Club Jamboree...

It's been awhile since I was at the Homosassa Fishing Club, but today I was there and it was their annual Jamboree. Myself and several other Homosassa Guide Association members fished the group and we had a ball. The money pot was for largest keeper fish back to the dock and my team and yours truly, won the bet $$$. It was really rough and windy and I knew if I could get a grouper or two, we would be in good shape. Well, my team fought through the conditions with me and secured three really nice gags casting plugs. The floating grass is horrible and getting a clean drag is next to impossible. Once in a while though, we would get a clean pass and "wham" grouper on. We had a great afternoon shore lunch and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Grouper....

Just about perfect conditions for Robbie, Mitch and Mike on board and these young guns hammered the grouper. We pulled my bait traps and ran out to about 13ft of water. I pretty much stayed in that depth range and we had an awesome trip. On just a couple drops, the guys secured a really nice limit of gags and released a bunch of under sized ones too. A really fun day and great job team... Capt. Dan

Rain & Grouper...

It's been a while since I've seen the Coleman team and I was happy to see them on board. Grouper was on the menu and we delivered some nice ones. I had to stay relatively close to shore due to the condition's, and there was a small rain storm to the south. Well, we no sooner starting catching some nice gags and the rain started coming down. The weather changed really fast and we had a slow, wet ride in. I thank you guys as always and great job... Capt. Dan

We had to work for them a bit today as the full moon tide was kicking me in the butt, but thankfully I figured them out. Mike, Chris and Kathy did a tremendous job turning the gags as I fished some North numbers as the action was pretty good. Palm sized pin fish were the deal and they secured our six fish grouper limit. We ran inshore free lined some pin fish and tackled a couple snook to top off the day. I thank you and great job to you all... Capt. Dan

Uncle Phil, Day Four...

All I can say is What a Day!!! Today was day four with Uncle Phil and Gina and they had an awesome one. The grouper action was superb down South and they turned some really nice fish. By noon they had a limit of gags on ice and Gina even had a "tug-o-war" on a huge Jew fish. You can see the pictures on my Crystal River Fishing Facebook page. We topped off the trip with a limit of snook and I thank you so much for the last four days. They were great and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

What a day for day three with Phil, Gina and myself on the grouper and snook. You either love or hate the full moon tides, but I love them for grouper and snook. Trout and red fish can be tough, so we stuck to the grouper and snook plan and did extremely well. The grouper bite was a bit tough as the tide was rolling, but we figured them out and secured a really nice catch; but I did have to move around. The snook bite was good as the tide got right, and I thank you all for a great day... Capt. Dan

Phil & I Having Fun...

A great day with just Uncle Phil and I, and we had a ball. I took him to one of my little ledges off Crystal River and he found some fine grouper. We're contending with the full moon right now so if your grouper fishing, you need to get them quick before the big incoming tide starts rolling - and we did just that. A nice catch of grouper and we targeted the full moon tide snook for the afternoon and did very well. I thank you and a great day... Capt. Dan
