Always a fun day with the Kennedy team and Mike, Brian and Mike had a ball. The day began on a run to the sheepshead grounds as we anchored up, and did well. I moved around to a couple of spots and the team boated some tasty sheepshead, plus releasing numerous gag grouper. Around noon, we secured a fine catch of sheepshead; so we ran back inshore and jerk baited some real quality trout in the shallow water of the keys. In just over an hour, we had a limit of trout and we headed back to the Plantation on Crystal River to call it a day. Thank you guys and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Sheepshead on the Menue...

A sheepshead request for today's Crystal River charter and the Barlow team did outstanding. The guys and I made the run offshore and the action was steady. Grunts, sheepshead, grouper and porgies filled out our day using live shrimp on knocker rigs. We moved around little by little catching a couple on each spot and the day was secured with a fine catch. I thank you all for the fun time, good laughs and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Trout & Sheep's...

A very pleasant day for us out of Crystal River and Steve and Chris had a fun one. The guys had a blast this morning both jigging and jerk baiting, some fine inshore trout. We kept our angler limit of 10 fish and we wrapped up our day dropping down on some sheepshead, to add to the mix. A beautiful day and I'm sure glad the wind backed off for us... Capt. Dan

Crystal River, Solid Day....

A solid day's catch with the Coleman team today and these gentlemen did outstanding. Lee, Richard and Clell all began the day jigging up some fine trout, and Richard had big fish honors with one at 4lbs. Bourbon colored Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day and we then pushed on out to sheepshead land. The team and I anchored on a nice piece of hard bottom and the bite was on. Sheepshead and grouper kept us busy and the action was truly great. A wonderful and day and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Another picture perfect day offshore Crystal River and the sea's today were flat calm. John and Lea were my guests and we had a ball. The day started jigging up a fine catch of trout on MirrOlure Lil' Johns and next, we ventured offshore. While offshore the team had a nice mix of sheepshead, grunts, gags and a bonus hogfish. A fantastic trip and I hope to see you all again soon... Capt. Dan

The weather broke for us today and WOW - was it ever beautiful out there. After two days of hard wind, the gulf was calm and the sheepshead were ready to go. Lauren and Jim were my guests for the day and we stayed in the 25ft range for the sheep's. The guys had a nice five fish per person catch, plus we jigged up a couple real quality trout on the way back home. A really nice day on the big pond and I thank you all for the great time... Capt. Dan

Always a fun day with Bob and Nancy on board and the husband and wife team had a blast. We covered the whole range we could that today's conditions would allow form inshore to offshore. The trip began in trout land, jigging up a couple trout as we ventured towards some sheepshead structures. We anchored up and caught a little mix of gags, grunts and sheepshead to keep us busy. As the tide rolled in, I made a ride to the South as we eased along the points; and found a couple red fish to wrap up the day. I thank you both so much and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Saturday Trout & Sheep's...

A big change in the weather for us and what a difference a day makes. The water cleared considerably and I had a great day with Val and John. I made the run to 23ft of water and we jumped around, picking up a couple sheepshead here and there. The husband and wife team put 10 sheepshead on ice and we jigged up a couple trout to end the day. Bourbon colored Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day for the trout rigged on 1/8th oz jig heads. A beautiful February day and I thank you all so much... Capt. Dan

Tough Sheep's...

Windy, rough and tough... This pretty much summed up the conditions for today's Crystal River charter. The recent cold front stirred up the gulf again and with a stiff NE wind, there was noooooo water at all. However, Chuck and Tim were game to give it a try and we were able to catch a couple sheepshead for the day. I couldn't go to far offshore, so we fished the 10ft range. The bites were very subtle for us, but we caught enough for a meal of two. I thank you guys and I'll be seeing you next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

The Inverness team on board today with Shane, Bart and Travis and the guys had a great one. Today's trip stated out jigging up some trout and on two drifts, we caught some fine keepers. Bourbon colored Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day. As the afternoon rolled on, we bottom fished some fine sheepshead, plus picked up a lone triple tail to wrap up our day. It sure was a beautiful day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan
