Fun Day...

A really fun day with Bill, Dave and Bryan on board and it sure was good to come out of "retirement". From my lack of posts, the weather has been absolutely horrible with rain and gusty winds causing me to cancel several trips. Today though, the conditions were favorable and we were able to get the day in. Sheepshead were the species of the day and the team did really good. We sent set down some shrimp on knocker rigs and it was quite good. The rods stayed bent and a fine catch filled out our day... Capt. Dan

St. Patty Sheep's...

Another gorgeous day on the big pond with the Clements party and the team did outstanding. Non stop sheepshead action began our day and the rods were busy. We put our fifteen in the box and then began hunting triple tail. We got lucky and found a floating log that had several under it and we picked up a pair of nice keepers. A trout and red finished up the day on the inside and I thank you all for the really great day... Capt. Dan

Almost a Record...

A really good day with Lee on board and we had beautiful conditions, to do a little bit of everything. Sheepshead was our main target and we caught some hefty ones. I was fishing too and as my rod went off,I hooked in to a beast. Well, long story short; it was my personal and largest sheepshead to date on board and turned out to be just 1lb from the state record. She did get released and hopefully in the future I will encounter her again. We finished up the day jigging up a couple trout, red fish and a very memorable day is in the books. I thank you Lee and here's the big girl of the day... Capt. Dan

Good Sheep's...

A rough day yesterday as it was howling and I mean howling; out of the NE and limited me on what I could do. We caught a couple nice trout, but that's all I could make happen. Today though - the sea's were down and I could make it out to sheepshead land with the Citrus Fishing Club and the guys did extremely well. I dropped the team on a couple 20ft ledges and live shrimp on knocker rigs kept us busy. I thank you all for a fun day and great job team... Capt. Dan

COLD Sheep's...

A big drop in the temperature and all I can say is thank goodness for sheepsheaed. There was absolutely nothing happening on the inside as the water temperature was in the upper 50's. So, I made the run offshore around noon and we dropped down to some very cooperative sheepshead. The team caught some real nice ones and I thank you all for the fun and "chilly" day... Capt Dan

Crystal River Mix...

What another good haul for Phil on board, for day two. We pretty much did the exact same drill as yesterday, but we caught our trout in the morning. Sheepshead were on the same structures and so were the triple tail. Some of the largest sheepshead of the year put bends in the rods, and a couple were over 10lbs. Two really great days and I thank you as always for the fun time - and you make the best sandwiches... Capt. Dan

Big Haul...

Much better conditions today and "Uncle" Phil was in town from Pennsylvania. It's always a fun time when he's here and we had an awesome catch today. A pair of red fish started our day on an oyster bar and it was two cast's, two fish. Sheepshead were up next and we soon enough had a fine catch. We left the sheepshead and ran down some triple tail for our mid day in between tide changes - they are always a welcomed surprise. To end the day we jigged with MirrOlure Lil' Johns and a good catch of trout made their way on board. A fun 1st day buddy and I'll see you tomorrow... Capt. Dan

A stellar day with Lauren, Dan and Joe and the Villages team hit it out of the park. Our trip began on a quick offshore run before the wind picked up and the sheepshead bite was fast and furious as it could be. Soon as we dropped it was fish on and some beauty's at that. The seas picked up though and we moved around inshore out of the wind best we could and secured some fine trout on DOA jerk baits. You guys are so great to fish with and another fun day... Capt. Dan

Sheeps' & Trout...

A beautiful day with the Riley team and even though it was a pretty cold start to the day. it warmed up nicely. I picked up the team from the Plantation on Crystal River and we began dropping down on some sheepshead bottom. The bites weren't furious, but steady enough to keep us interested. We kept all we needed and added some trout to the mix on jigs. I thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Great Mix...

A perfect trip today with Larry, Dean and Nathan - and the weather was fabulous too. The wind was down so that gave us the freedom to go anywhere we wanted. The gang and I spent the morning jigging up some really nice offshore trout on MirrOlure Lil Johns. Fifteen beauty's came on board and we spent the rest of the day picking up a couple surprise sheepshead, triple tail and red fish. I thank you all and always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan
