Good Mix...

A great time today with Mike, Chris and Steve and we had a nice mixed bag. We made the run offshore to about 18ft of water and on one spot, we did extremely well. Red fish, trout, snapper, cobia and grunts sure kept us busy using live pin fish and shrimp. We did catch a couple small gags on the first stop, but I moved around a bit after that and Mike turned a hefty gag plus releasing several just under the 24" mark. A great morning and I'll see you all tomorrow. Here's Mike with his big gag grouper of the day... Capt. Dan

Solar Snook...

The solar eclipse day and we caught a couple, but the bite wasn't on fire. Don and Frank were my guests today and we had some luck on some small gags for the morning hours, as we waited for the tide to turn in. On the incoming tide, we picked up a couple red fish real quick and a beautiful snook, but that was about it. I jumped around to several places but the surface on the points was quite still, with very little mullet activity. This is usually not a good sign and that was it for bites today. Still a great time and congratulations Frank on your hefty snook... Capt. Dan

Backcountry Red's....

Some fine upper slot to over slot red fish on today's trip with the Owens team. My original plan was to tackle some grouper, and we were able to make a quick stop; but unfortunately the weather turned bad and the storms chased us inshore. So with the incoming tide, we red fished the afternoon and had a ball. Live pinfish did the trick and I hope to see you all again soon... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Gags & Reds...

A great start to the day on our grouper trip and the gags were biting very well. Terry and Chuck were my guests and they teamed up, sent down some live pin fish and turned some nice grouper. I was only able to hit three spots before the rain storms and wind gusts, chased us inshore. Not to cut the trip short; we finished up with some fine red fish and a great day out of Crystal River is in the books. I thank you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Reds, Gags, Mango's & Macks..

We had another nice variety catch on today's trip with Tony, Ray and Rusty. Our day began on the incoming tide and the team picked up a couple fine red fish. We left the inside as it was smoldering hot, and ran offshore a bit. We had some terrific grouper action on live pin fish and turned a couple nice keepers as well. The guys released numerous fish in the 22" - 23 3/4" range, which is a good sight to see. A mix of grunts, mango's and mackerel filled out the day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Sugarmill Gang...

Always a blast with Bill, Jerry and Roland. These guys love to fish and it sure shows. We had a terrific day on red fish with live shrimp on the points and fun on the rock piles. The rocks produced lots of fine mangrove snapper, grunts, grouper and Spanish mackerel. Live shrimp on a Hank Brown, did the trick. I thank you all and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Reds in the Rain...

Not the best weather today for us as I had Jason on board, but we fought the rain and made it happen. Jason and I had grouper plans today, but unfortunately the stiff West wind and non stop on and off morning showers kept us inshore. We hit the points with live pin fish and it was pretty good. The big surprise was in a heavy, gusty down pour - the red fish bite was awesome. We released some fine red fish, kept our two and the day was made... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Reds & Gags..

Good to be back on the gags! It's definitely not prime grouper season yet, but it's sure is getting better. Bill and Fred were my guests today and the day started on the points targeting the reds. The red fish bite was good and live shrimp did the trick for us. Next though, we made the run offshore in the bumpy seas and found some gags. The grouper bite was surprisingly good and the team turned three nice keepers to show for the day. I thank you both and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A fun day with Jim on board and he came solo, for a great first time experience. Jim and I began our day on the outgoing tide, catching a couple snook and a fine slot red fish to bend the rod. I didn't have a bunch of tide to work with, but we made it happen. For the rest of our day we did the rock pile game and did well on mangrove snapper and a keeper gag. A nice variety and I thank you Jim... Capt. Dan
