Way South Gags...

A tremendous day with the Clements family and this father and son team did so great. We pulled our bait traps first thing this morning and we started the day inshore red fishing and did well. The guys each caught there keeper reds and we soon headed way South to grouper land. I haven't been to my Bay port numbers yet this year, but when we arrived it was spectacular. In less than fifteen minutes we had six beautiful gag in ice and Myself and the team could only say "WOW".... A great day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Monday Mix...

A mix on the board today with the Sans team out of Crystal River and Toad, Rusty and Tony did great. I had a late take off due to some electrical issues, but got them resolved soon enough. We did a bit of red fishing and did well, while finishing up tackling a couple real nice gags. It was a bumpy one again and I'll sure be happy when the seas clam down a bit. I thank you guys for everything today... Capt. Dan

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

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
