The Sandh team was on board today and it sure was a beautiful day. We had a blast trout jigging and really had some hot action. There was over an hour stretch where we had three on at a time and it's great to see so many fish out there. The tide came in and we finished up the day working the points catching some quality snook. I thank you all and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Slam....

What a day with Shane and Hans on the inside. Sheepshead season is just about over and the gulf is warming fast. In the coming days we just might see some cobia and possibly a tarpon on the end of our lines. Today though was great and we hit the inshore slam. Great trout jigging, snook and reds on the points and I thank you guys for a super day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River, Great Day...

What a great day with Michael and his son Conner and they sure did well. Uncle Phil had to cut his trip short a day early yesterday due to possible travel problems with this panic that's going on, but we sure had three great days. Today though, was awesome with really a nice easy day of sheepshead, trout and a nice snook. The seas were a touch bumpy, but not to bad and the action was steady. The father and son team did really well and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix....

Uncle Phil is in town and we made it happen on a really beautiful day. We spent the day both inshore and offshore catching a mix of snook in the morning and an afternoon of mangroves and other goodies. The oyster bars produced the snook with DOA glow jerk baits and we sent down some live shrimp for the rest of the mixed bag. The conditions couldn't have been better and it really was a fun day...

Snook in the Back...

Too windy to go offshore for the morning hours and I had to be in early for an appointment, so for Tim and Jeanne we stayed in the back country and went snookin'. This was our first real cold front of the year and it was actually pretty chilly, but felt good. I put the trolling motor down, tied on some DOA jerk baits and we hit the creeks. The action was good and 1/2 a dozen snook a red fish and a trout came on board for our 1/2 day trip. Tim caught a beauty around 35" and she put on a great show. Great job in the windy, chilly, weather... Capt. Dan

We had to work for them a bit today as the full moon tide was kicking me in the butt, but thankfully I figured them out. Mike, Chris and Kathy did a tremendous job turning the gags as I fished some North numbers as the action was pretty good. Palm sized pin fish were the deal and they secured our six fish grouper limit. We ran inshore free lined some pin fish and tackled a couple snook to top off the day. I thank you and great job to you all... Capt. Dan

Uncle Phil, Day Four...

All I can say is What a Day!!! Today was day four with Uncle Phil and Gina and they had an awesome one. The grouper action was superb down South and they turned some really nice fish. By noon they had a limit of gags on ice and Gina even had a "tug-o-war" on a huge Jew fish. You can see the pictures on my Crystal River Fishing Facebook page. We topped off the trip with a limit of snook and I thank you so much for the last four days. They were great and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

What a day for day three with Phil, Gina and myself on the grouper and snook. You either love or hate the full moon tides, but I love them for grouper and snook. Trout and red fish can be tough, so we stuck to the grouper and snook plan and did extremely well. The grouper bite was a bit tough as the tide was rolling, but we figured them out and secured a really nice catch; but I did have to move around. The snook bite was good as the tide got right, and I thank you all for a great day... Capt. Dan

Phil & I Having Fun...

A great day with just Uncle Phil and I, and we had a ball. I took him to one of my little ledges off Crystal River and he found some fine grouper. We're contending with the full moon right now so if your grouper fishing, you need to get them quick before the big incoming tide starts rolling - and we did just that. A nice catch of grouper and we targeted the full moon tide snook for the afternoon and did very well. I thank you and a great day... Capt. Dan

Fitzpatrick Mix...

A really fun day with the Fitzpatrick team and the family did awesome. It was Trace's 10th birthday and he wanted to go fishing. Well, this young man did very well catching some really nice red fish. right out of the gate this morning. We landed around fifteen or so, plus a decent snook and finished up the day with a pair of really nice gags. You all did fantastic and I thank you... Capt. Dan
