Pat's Slam....

My man Pat got the slam today and we did well. The day began jerk baiting some trout on the shallow flats as they bit much better today and we secured a quick limit. The tide was coming fast again, due to the condition's, so we got a jump on the snook and got our keeper. We ended the day with some red fish and our Crystal River slam was completed. Fun day buddy and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam...

Always fun when you can accomplish a slam and with the Stephens family on board they did fine. We had to contend with a West wind and full moon tides which really brought in a lot of water, which made the bite a little slow. We hung in there though, and jerk baited some trout, snook and a couple reds on live shrimp. I thank you both and a really fun day.... Capt. Dan

A bit of a slow start today with the cold front we had yesterday, but we warmed up and got'em. I had the Lent team on board and these guys did great. We jigged offshore and had some fine action with trout, sea bass, grouper etc... for a couple hours. The guys had a really nice catch of trout and we hit the bushes to top off some snook for the afternoon. The day turned out great and I thank you all.... Capt. Dan

Windy in the Back Country....

It's been a while, but today I had just had Rick on board so we took my little skiff and hit the back country. Rick is an accomplished angler, so we hit the creeks and points for a really good day. Loaded with DOA jerkbaits, we totaled over 20 snook for the day and 5 red fish. The bite was really good and always fun in the back woods. The Wind was whipping ahead of the late cold front we just had, which "may affect the fishing for a couple days", but the fish were really wound up and had a terrific day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam....

Such a fun day with Jim, Rich and Deanna on board. We were fortunate to tackle the big three with a fine catch of offshore trout and some other goodies on the inside. Rootbeer colored MirrOlure Lil' Jons were the trout flavor today and it sure was a beautiful day - I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam....

What a day with Shane and Hans on the inside. Sheepshead season is just about over and the gulf is warming fast. In the coming days we just might see some cobia and possibly a tarpon on the end of our lines. Today though was great and we hit the inshore slam. Great trout jigging, snook and reds on the points and I thank you guys for a super day... Capt. Dan

Sodium Tournament..

Hello everyone, it's been pretty tough getting trips in this week and I apologize for the weather we've been having. Today though, I was able to fish the Crystal River Sodium Fishing Gear tournament and had a blast. I don't get to fish by myself very often, but today I did and caught a lot of fish. I had a good day with over 30 keeper trout up to 21" and red fish to 25". I took my Silver King skiff and stayed busy just about all day. The wind was howling and made it challenging, plus the very low tide. I just couldn't find that big 5lb trout, but still fun all the same. Hopefully we'll get them next year and I'll see you all soon... Capt. Dan

Uncle Phil's in Town...

Many of you have been following me for quite sometime and the second week of October, Phil comes to town. Well, today was day one and we had a blast. Grouper, red fish and trout filled out the day and he sure is fun to fish with. He brought along his family friend Chris today and they both tackled some fin gags. I went down South again and in short order we had a really nice limit. The weather improved greatly today and looks good for the weekend forecast. Phil has three more days on board, so we'll see what we can do... Cap. Dan

Fitzpatrick Mix...

A really fun day with the Fitzpatrick team and the family did awesome. It was Trace's 10th birthday and he wanted to go fishing. Well, this young man did very well catching some really nice red fish. right out of the gate this morning. We landed around fifteen or so, plus a decent snook and finished up the day with a pair of really nice gags. You all did fantastic and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Hands down as rough as it gets to still do a grouper charter today and my team of Shane, Bart and Nathan were hanging in tough, to get it done. Well, the day started by pulling bait traps and heading West to troll a bit; but unfortunately it was just to rough to get it done - so we headed inshore. The inshore action was good with a limit of red fish, some sheepshead and trout; but I was itching to get back out to some grouper spots. I stayed shallow in 6ft to 8ft of water and the guys did great turning four really nice grouper in no time. It definitely was a challenging one today, but I thank you all and great job... Capt. Dan
