Cobia on the Menue...

A great day offshore with the Novinger family and we tackled some cobia. I haven't been offshore to the south in quite a while and it felt good to do so. We free lined live pin fish over some hard bottom areas and did well. The big excitement was when the largest jewfish I've encountered to date, tried to eat one of our keeper cobia - It was quite a sight! A couple trout and a nice red fish were also added to the day and once again, I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Trip's & Reds...

Dave and Danny on board today for some triple tail action and afternoon reds. The day was a good one as the team and I spent most of it running and gunning; sight fishing triple tail. We basically spot the fish and present a free lined live shrimp to them and they usually cooperate nicely. A couple fine triple tail came on board plus lost a few and then we finished the day with some nice reds to top off the day. I thank you both and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

Tony, Rusty and Todd were my guys today and they had a good one. Today was a jigging offshore kind of day and we fished the 6ft to 9ft spotty bottom areas. I loaded the team with bourbon colored MirrOlure Lil' Johns and that was basically our bait of the day; until we went red fishing. While we were jigging, we just made long drifts and had a fine variety. With a sold catch offshore, we hit the points on the incoming tide and finished up with some beautiful red fish. A wonderful day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam...

A great day inshore with my old time friends Bob and Dave and the guys completed the inshore slam. The day started on the incoming tide and catching some red fish. We fished the outer keys and a live shrimp on a jig head produced the reds. We made a drift for some trout and caught a nice keeper, but I was game to try for snook and so were the guy's; so that's how we spent the afternoon. We used DOA glow jerk baits along the points and caught three fine snook with Bob's big dog coming in at 35". A great day and the wind eventually chased us in to finish up the day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Reds...

Not the ideal weather for us today and to be honest, it was quite nasty. Rain, wind and white caps - were the conditions, but we had good water and we were able to spend a 1/2 day charter red fishing. The team and I hit a couple points and did well. We caught several red fish from over-slot, to in the slot and Deanna had big fish honors. Live shrimp was the bait for us today and I thank you all for putting up with the weather and having a great morning... Capt. Dan

Spring In Homosassa...

A beautiful spring day with the Sugarmill gang on board and Roland, Bill and Jim had a good one. The wind was a bit gusty out of the South, but we had a little bit of water to work with to find some red fish. I made a couple stops and we caught a fine limit, from upper slot to lower slot. Next up, I made a run off the keys to some hard bottom and began jerk baiting up the trout. The trout action was quite good and we brought in a fine limit of trout in a couple drifts. I thank you all for a great day and always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Saturday Trout & Reds...

No April fools today, as Kayla and Adam had a fine day out of the Plantation on Crystal River. The trout bite was extremely good for us and we caught the majority of our fish offshore jigging in 9ft of water. Bourbon colored Lil Johns were the flavor the trout were chewing. We had a bit of incoming tide late in the day for a red fish stop and Kayla added a beautiful mid slot fish to the catch. A great day and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Inshore...

Frank, Scott and Chris were my team today out of Crystal River and the trout and red fish cooperated nicely. Our first couple drifts today were fantastic and the trout action with DOA glow jerk baits kicked off the day. I did make a run offshore and we jigged up the usual mixed bag of species. The tide began running in hard around 2pm, so we hit the points and finished up with some quality red fish. A great day and I thank you all so much... Capt. Dan

Seafood Sampler....

We did the old seafood sampler today and caught the quite variety. Today was my last sheepshead trip of the year and we caught a few here and there for the morning hours, plus a triple tail. It sure was a good season and thank you everyone for the great memories. Next up, we ran back inshore, tackled a couple trout and Spanish mackerel while casting jigs. To end the day, a couple red fish but a bend in our rods and it was another beautiful day on the big pond. Thank you both and let's do it again sometime.... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Perfection...

You couldn't of ordered a more beautiful day and was it ever fantastic. Today out of Macrae's on the Homosassa River, Dan, Gary and Lauren joined me for some inshore trout and reds. The trout action was real good as the tide rolled in, but we had to wait for the water to get going to turn them on. The team brought in a beautiful limit of hefty trout on DOA jerk baits and then we stopped on a hungry school of red fish, to wrap up the day. As good as it gets and I thank you guys for the great time... Capt. Dan
