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

Homosassa Mix...

A great day with the West party in Homosassa and we had a fine mix. We spent the majority of the day after the morning rains, offshore jigging some nice trout. MirrOlure Lil' Johns did their job bringing in a mix of species and the action was very steady all day. The team secured a fine limit of trout and we were lucky to find a pair of keeper red fish to wrap up the day. I thank you all and great job everyone... Capt. Dan

Hot Front Bite...

A big weather change is on the way and on my, the fish were feeding today. I had the pleasure of having the Dauchess party on board and they did great on the trout and reds. It was blowing pretty hard out of the NW, so we tucked up in the creeks the best we could and had a very good afternoon. Live shrimp was our bait of the day and I thank you all for the fun time...

Late Take Off Slam...

With the morning tides being so terrible lately, I decided to just fish the afternoon incoming tide with John and Chris and it was a perfect decision. The guys met me at the Plantation just before noon and we had a terrific afternoon. A nice limit of trout were caught on DOA jerk baits, plus a couple red fish as the tide kept coming in on the points. The weather and conditions were so nice and Chris even caught two snook to complete his first Crystal River inshore slam. You guys had quite the day and great job... Capt. Dan

Back on the Water....

Hello everyone and I first want to thank all of you that have checked in with me and sent prayers as I go through another bump in the road. I'm all healed up from my surgery and now I'm doing a couple cycles of chemotherapy. It's keeping me down a little bit, but we're going to get through it and keep on fishing. Today though, I was back on the big pond with Jason on board and we caught a mix of red fish, sheepshead, grouper and grunts. I had hopes in trying to tackle some snook, but the gusty East wind blew all the water out and made fishing the inside impossible. We dropped down on a couple ledges, released several sheepshead and found a pair of lower slot red fish on one of the outer points before we called it a day. Always a good time and it sure feels like spring out there... Capt. Dan

COLD Trout....

It was a cold one out there today folks and my solo client Larry was ready to go for it. We reached the gulf and was greeted to 52 degree water temperature. That's really cold for us and it was to bumpy to sheepshead fish, so we started at the mouth of the river and moved back east. I tied on some MirrOlure Lil' John jigs and we basically jigged the channel edge and did quite well. Nine keeper trout came on board, as well as a small snook and red fish to complete a slam. I thank you Larry and here's the first one of the day... Capt. Dan

Labor Day Reds.

Pretty windy for us today on this Labor Day and Bill and Jerry were ready to give it a go. Red fishing was our plan, but the bite was slow today. We caught a couple rat reds right away and moved around a bunch. We finally went in the Ozello back country where Bill caught his first snook and Jerry got his big red; plus having a couple come unbuttoned. Free lined pin fish under a cork got us the bigger bites, while shrimp produced the little guys. Always a good time with you both and I hope the conditions are more favorable next time... Capt. Dan

Gags and Reds...

A perfect trip today with Bill, as he was my solo guest and we had a blast. I started the trip loading up the live well with pin fish and I soon after stopped on a grouper spot. The tide was just turning to come, I set up and fish on. We free lined the pin fish to the ledge and a pair of keeper gags made their way on board. For the rest of the day we red fished the mangrove islands and did very well also. A combination of live shrimp, plus live pin fish were what the red fish were caught on and we had an hour of really good action. A fun time Bill and I thank you... Capt. Dan
