Reds on Fire...

A perfect morning with Nicole and Joyce on board and the ladies had some fantastic red fish action. We fished the tide today just for red fish and the slightly cooler gulf temperature from yesterday's rain, fired up the red fish. We presented live shrimp and cut bait on the points for our success. The team caught some fine reds to slot size, to over slot and I thank you both for the great morning... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Windy Reds...

A stiff West wind today! You have to love it for the water it pushes in, but it limits you to where you can run. Day two with the Bosworth team and red fishing was going to be our game plan for the day. The seas were to rough to go outside, but we had some good red fish action to save the day. I've been using live shrimp most of the time on my recent charters, but today I gave the old cut lady fish a try. Well, it did the trick and immediately we hooked up. In very short time the team caught some fine red fish, but unfortunately that was the only bite to get going today. The winds increased even more, so we called it a day. I thank you all for two great days and I look forward to next year... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Gags & Reds...

Day one with the Bosworth team and we left Macrae's at 8am and headed to the red fish points. We just set up on the last minutes of the incoming tide and free lined live shrimp in the mullet schools, for a fine limit of mid slot red fish. The guys did great and the rest of our day we jumped rock to rock catching grunts and grouper. The gags were biting, but most were shy of the keeper size, except Will turned a beauty to seal the deal. A fun time and good action; I'll see you all tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

What a great day today with Steve and Billy on board and we ran offshore, where we left them biting yesterday. I got the boat positioned in about 18ft of water and the team sent down some live shrimp. We fished about an hour and a half and we had on stop action with snook, red fish, mangrove snapper, trout, grunts and some gag grouper. A couple of the species were surprises and the abundance of trout offshore, is quite interesting. I believe the hot water temperature sends some of the inshore shore species offshore for comfort and it's always an adventure on the big pond... Capt. Dan

Hot Homosassa Reds...

The summer heat didn't give us break today and it was a toasty one on the big pond. I had the pleasure of having the Athens family on board and we spent the mornings incoming tide red fishing. I had to move around a bit to find them, but we eventually did. Live shrimp in the mullet schools did the trick and we spent the afternoon rock pile jumping. On the rocks, we had good action with mango's, grunts, small gags, mackerel, lady fish and jacks. Pretty steady action and it's always fun to put a bend in the rod. This was my last trip before I head out to Wyoming, so stay tuned for some fishing updates from the Wild West..... Capt. Dan

Tough Tarpon...

Always a fun time with Joe on board and for today's trip, tarpon were on the target list. I did make a couple stops on the way out for red fish and Joe secured a fine upper slot fish for his dinner. We left the keys and went to the tarpon grounds. Well, to say the least - the tarpon were tough. The wind swap out of the East had them just rolling up and down and not "in a happy" mood. We tried an assortment of live and artificial baits, but wasn't meant to be. Still, it's always great to be in fish, see them roll and I thank you Joe as always for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A good mix with yesterdays team on board again and we had a great day. Our trip began leaving from the Plantation on Crystal River and we got a jump on the outgoing tide for the red fish. Well, we hit it good and one stop produced three fine slot red fish as they cooperated on live shrimp on a jig head. Next though, I ran offshore a bit to some ledges and had some steady action with the mango's, grunts, small gags and a beautiful hefty cobia. The gang was all smiles and I thank you for two great days of fishing... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Rain & Reds....

Well, the weather cut us short today, but we were able to at least get a couple hours of good red fishing in. I was joined by my good friend Capt. William Toney and we fished the Marique party to some pretty good red fishing. A slight break in the rain allowed us to hit a couple outer keys for the reds and they sure were there. We had close to a double digit couple hours of fishing and live shrimp on a jig head was the bait of choice. I thank you all for the fun time and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Reds...

Day two with the Euart team in Homosassa and my crew today was on a red fishing mission. Pat, Lucy and Austin were my team and they did fantastic on the Homoosassa red fish. We basically jumped from rocky point to rocky point and free lined live pin fish with great success. The young anglers caught a fine limit of reds and I sure am proud of them. A beautiful day and here's myself and my team with one of today's beauty's... Capt. Dan

Team Sugarmill Woods...

The gang was back on board today with Mel, Bill and Jerry and it's always a great time. I ran back offshore again for the good trout action and we did well. It was a bit slower than the last two days, but still pretty steady with a mixed bag. Jigging MirrOlure Lil' Johns once again was the deal. We also anchored on a small rock for some great sea bass action, plus releasing the usual grouper too. To end the day Mel brought in s whopper 35" snook and Bill a fine upper-slot redfish. A wonderful time with you all and I thank you... Capt. Dan
