Morning Reds...

Some morning red fish action today with Sue and Debbie on board out of Crystal River. It's been a while since I've been out from all the wind Dorian brought us, but today was the last of the breezy conditions for a while. I stayed inshore and hit the keys with cut bait for our red fish. We caught a limit of reds and tried a while for a snook, but no takers today. I thank you both and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

Morning Reds & Afternoon Gags...

Not a super hot bite today and the big change in wind direction is to blame. The steady SW to W wind we've had lately change to the N to NW today and it changed the tide and fish activity. It was blowing pretty good, so first stop grouper was not an option, so we hit the outer points and caught a couple red fish. Shane, Danny and Nathan were my team and they caught a couple slot reds and numerous little guys for the first part of the trip. There was little to no mullet activity and this was a huge indication the day was going to be a bit tough. Around 11ish, the winds backed off enough to make a grouper run, but I stayed shallow and fished the 8ft depth of water range. We turned a couple keepers and some shorts for the afternoon. A good time with you all and here's Danny with his big gag of the day... Capt. Dan

Fun Time....

Always a super fun time with Alyse, Amanda and Tom. The father and daughter team did a terrific job catching some nice reds on the outer keys and knocking down some grouper before the rain storms. The reds were in a small school and actually myself and Capt, Mario Costello worked as a team, bouncing the red fish in between us. We made a couple quick stops on a couple ledges and turned three really nice grouper to wrap up our day. I thank you all and always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Good Gags & Reds...

Some more fun on the red fish and grouper and Shane was my solo guest today out of Crystal River. Not to much to report in change from the last three days. We experienced some great red fishing on the falling tide and hot grouper action on some ledges. I will say for today, the gags were wound up and they were hitting as hard as I've seen them. It was like it was November with them being so aggressive. Shane did great turning them and I always enjoy the day with you.... Capt. Dan

Reds &Gags...

Another great day with Brian and Bobby and this father and son team had a great day. For this Crystal River charter, it was an absolute identical trip as to yesterdays trip. Great red fishing in the morning and some nice gag grouper fishing to wrap up the day. I used live pin fish for both trips and you guys were a blast to have on board. I thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Reds & Gags....

A really great day with Dan, Lauren and Big Fish Bob and the guys had quiet the day. We started the trip on a terrific red fish bite and the guys took turns catching some really nice fish. All the reds were released and we changed gears and went after some gags. I made a run way south and started in 15ft of water and we began turning some nice grouper. A couple nice keepers made their way on board and we topped off the grouper limit in 25ft with some real nice fish. A wonderful day with you all and I thank you.... Capt. Dan

Homosassa 1/2 Day...

We did the 10am to 2pm shift today for the Manriki group out of Macrae's in Homosassa with my great captain friends Mark Zorn and William Toney. I had the pleasure of having Jim, David and Terry on board and we did really well on trout. I haven't been doing much inshore fishing lately but from what I've heard, the trout bite has been slow. Well, I did what I felt was a good area and it was a great call. The team picked up eight real nice trout on cork rigs and bourbon colored Lil' Johns were the ticket. We left the trout flats picked up a couple red fish and it sure was a good time. We beat the afternoon rain storms by just a couple minutes, I thank you all we'll do it again next year... Capt. Dan

Scouting Reds....

A scouting trip today with good friends Clay and Jeremiah as they are preparing for a tournament this weekend. I need a day break to rest a bit from 4 hard days of tarpon fishing, so I sat back and enjoyed the boat ride. We covered a bunch of areas and saw some good numbers of red fish and even more snook. We caught a couple fish and made a good game plan for the tournament tomorrow. Good time today guys and I thank you.... Capt. Dan

Big Red, Cold Front...

A late season cold front for us today and oh my, was it ever chilly and windy. John and Nelson were the team today and it was definitely a challenge out there. The water was mud to the North of Crystal River, so we headed South for the day. We scrapped out five trout and a couple red fish for our efforts, but across the board with myself and the other guides - it was a tough one. Weather should improve a bit over the next couple days and Friday, we get another big front. Great job today though guys and a whopper of a redfish Mr. John... Capt. Dan

Last Day...

The last day with the West party and Gerry and Paul were my team today. Once again we spent the majority of the day offshore jigging up the trout and the action was great. A nice breeze helped us cover plenty of water and the MirrOlure Lil Johns gave us our success. A fine limit of trout was reached just afternoon and we had just enough tide to squeak in a red fish before we had to call it a day. A terrific three days and I thank the entire group for the fun time... Capt. Dan
