More Crystal River Offshore...

The picture perfect weather continues and Phil and I had a blast for his day two. We pretty much stayed offshore for the day bouncing around and catching a mixed offshore assortment. You really can't beat the action and for rod bending fun, it's definitely where its at - plus the fish are tasty. A great time and I'll see you tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Inshore Rocks...

A good mix with Bart, Shane, Nick and Nathan on board and we sure had a fun time. The sea's were up a bit and couldn't go to far offshore, but we made it happen. We dropped down the shrimp on a couple different rock piles and stayed real busy on the out going tide. Some quality sheepshead came on board and had several come unbuttoned as well. We picked up a couple trout too and I thank you guys for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Awesome Offshore....

Talk about an awesome day, after four days of windy weather. The San's team was on board and Tony, Brendan and Tony the Tree guy hit it out of the park. From start to finish it was game on. We ran offshore a bit and the rods stayed bent. Snapper, grunts, grouper a couple hog fish - it was a blast. You guys had an awesome catch and great job.... Capt. Dan

Offshore Fun....

Another terrific day offshore with Mark and Tono on board and they did fantastic. I pushed on out to 40ft of water again and it was really good. A mixed bag of all the goodies and we stayed busy all day. Some real quality snapper was the big highlight of the day and I thank you both.... Capt. Dan

Offshore Goodness....

A really good offshore trip today with the Barlow family and we sure did great. I did fish yesterday with Tony and Amber and did good on grunts, a couple sheepshead and released a bunch of gags. Today though, was pretty on and we had some good action. It seems like the 30ft mark is where the fish are if you want to bend the rods, as the gulf is still in the mid to upper 50's. You have to have the weather, but when its favorable it really is good. The team today had a terrific mixed bag and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crazy Gags and Mix...

Terrific action for us today and Harry and Mike had a busy day. I love my grouper and always glad to pull on a couple, but my goodness we just couldn't get past them to the hogfish and snapper. We must of literally released over 75 grouper today and broke off well over 20 - "lots of retying". A couple nice hog fish mad their way on board, but the bigger mango's were lock-jawed, as we only had shorts for the day. I thank you all a great job on turning those grouper on light tackle... Capt. Dan

Back up and Running....

Hello everyone, I know it's been a while but I'm back up and running and it sure was good to be back out today. The Young Boats restoration team did a tremendous job fixing my boat from the accident, and it looks good as new. For today's trip, I had Jason and Frank on board and we did something a little bit different. I took the guys down South in the 30ft range and we targeted mangrove snapper. I have to have the right conditions to do this and today is was perfect. Calm sea's and free lined live shrimp on a 1/8th oz jig head did the trick for us. We boated some beautiful snapper, released numerous gags and so many grunts I lost count. I thank you both and great job.... Capt. Dan

Offshore Weather...

A decent weather day to finally go outside a bit and Danny, Bart and Shane did very well. I did fish yesterday, but the morning storms delayed the trip during the prime time of the tide and we had a late take off. We caught a couple trout, several bluefish and jacks; but the weather hurt us. Today though was great with some decent grouper action on the ledges with live pin fish, plus a few mangrove snapper and grunts with live shrimp. The big catch was Danny bringing up a several hundred pound Goliath grouper we fed a live jack crevalle to, and it was a great battle. We brought it boat-side, took some pics and watched her swim away. A great time and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

Calm seas and happy grouper! A great day offshore with the Villages team of Chris, Jim and Al. The fellas joined up and we headed offshore. I fished just inside the 30ft range and we bottom fished a fine catch of gags; plus some bonus hog fish. Live pin fish were the ticket for the grouper and live shrimp on knocker rigs caught us the hogs. A really nice day to be offshore and great job team... Capt. Dan

Bill's Birthday!!!!

Happy birthday to a great friend and client, Bill Lent. Bill and his wife Nell were on board today and we celebrated his 90th birthday in style. Our first stop of the day produced some really nice red fish and live pin fish got the bite going for us. Nell did have the hot rod and she caught a couple beauty's. We left the reds and ran offshore a bit and had some decent action with grouper, grunts, flounder, mackerel and some small snapper. The North wind felt very comfortable and I thank you both for the fun time... Capt. Dan
