Crystal River Variety

Another fine mixed bag today out of Crystal River and Steve, Bob and Tommy were very pleased with their success. We began the day fishing the first couple hours of the outgoing tide and targeting trout. Using a mixture of DOA cals, Mirrolure Lil' Johns and Gulp shrimp,we jigged our way along the bars and had a nice catch of 11 keeper trout before we ran offshore. Our next stop were the scattered rock piles in 8ft to10ft of water and once again, the mixed bag of species kept us busy. Numerous grunts, sea bass, sheepshead, grouper and a mackerel filled out our afternoon before we called it a day. Thank you gentlemen for the great time and look forward to seeing you again soon...

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and if you were feeling like me, it was a little tough to get going this morning from eating such a great meal. However, a couple cups of coffee and rigging up the rods; I was ready for a great day with Matt, Mike and Tom out of Crystal River. Leaving from Pete's Pier Marina, we ran out the river and we were welcomed to an "extremely low tide". I had to get creative on my fishing locations, but deciding on working the cuts between the oyster bars, we began catching several trout to start the day. The trout bite was pretty steady, but I wanted to gives the guys a little variety, so we ran offshore to the rock piles and found a mixed bag. Numerous grouper, sea bass, grunts, porgys, mackerel and sheepshead filled out our afternoon catch, before we ran back inshore to find a last minute red fish. Back in the creeks, with a minimal high tide, we caught a couple under slot red fish; while Matt had the hot rod and picked up a beautiful 24" keeper to end the day. Thanks guys for the great time and enjoy all the variety of species for your fish fry... Capt. Dan

We're getting close to sheepshead season and we picked up a beautiful one today while we were catching some trout and red fish. I was at the Homosassa Fishing Club with fellow Homosassa Guides Association Captains Mark Zorn and William Toney for a full day out of Homosassa. We did a combination of morning fishing, shore lunch and finished out the afternoon with a quick drift for a couple more trout. The trout bite was quite good and Frank and Tim had 11 keepers throughout the day on the DOA holographic root beer shrimp deadly combos. Along with the trout, we also had a mixed catch of red fish, black drum, sea bass and the big sheepshead. I thank you guys for the fun time and always look forward to seeing you again. Here's Tim with his prize sheepshead... Capt. Dan
