Good Time in Crystal River...

Another nice mix with the Barlow team and Ron, Dean and Ron Jr. did outstanding. We spent the majority of the day drifting some spotty bottom in 8ft of water using MirrOlure Lil Johns jigs. Well, the action was superb and for over three hours we had something pulling on our lines. This included the first cobia of the year, but it was on the small side. We ran back inshore as the tide turned and finished off our trip with a beauty of an upper slot snook and I thank you all for the great time... Capt. Dan

Jigging Trout...

Always a fun day with Dave and Danny on board and these gentlemen had a great day. We spent the majority of the day jigging up some trout, with the usual by catch on grouper, sea bass, mackerel, etc... I love this time of year as every cast can be a surprise. We secured a limit of trout an ended the day on the little bit of tide we had to find a red fish to bend the rod. A great day and I thank you both as always... Capt. Dan

Spring Trout...

A beautiful February Spring day with Mike, Bryan and Mike on board and these gentleman had an awesome day. On today's trip, I ran offshore a bit and we jigged our way to some real nice quality trout. Root beer colored Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day and we caught numerous grouper, sea bass and a mackerel as well. I made one more try for sheepshead, but we only caught two as I truly believe, unless we get a cold front - the season is over. A fun day with you all and great catch guys... Capt. Dan

The Sugarmill Gang..

It's been a while, but it sure was good to see Bill, Roland and Jim on board again. It was the guys annual December grouper trip and it was pretty similar to yesterdays trip on the grouper. Lots and lots of undersized gags again, but that's great to see too. We finally found some nice grouper dinners, plus Roland sight fished a beautiful triple tail that was under a piece of floating cardboard. Enjoy the goodies and I'll see you next month... Capt. Dan

Good Mix...

We covered some ground today with Ted, Brad and Curtis on board and the guys had a good one. The outgoing tide red fish bite started the day and we had a double digit morning. Most were little Cobb reds, but a couple keepers bent the rod and live shrimp did the trick. Next up, we drifted the flats and did very well on cork rigs again for the trout. Watermelon red flake Lil' Johns were the trout's preference today. We topped off the day with a nice gag grouper, mackerel, released a few others and great job today team... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Offshore...

A little choppy today, but a great day offshore with Tony, Todd and Tom. The guys were ready to play and they turned some fine gags. We fished the 20ft range and with only a couple break offs, the gags came on board. Turning these shallow water grouper makes the day and if you have the endurance to get them away from their structure, it can be very rewarding. The mangrove snapper, hog fish and macks kept us busy, while free lining live shrimp in between grouper bites. I thank you all and great job today team... Capt. Dan

Reds, Gags, Mango's & Macks..

We had another nice variety catch on today's trip with Tony, Ray and Rusty. Our day began on the incoming tide and the team picked up a couple fine red fish. We left the inside as it was smoldering hot, and ran offshore a bit. We had some terrific grouper action on live pin fish and turned a couple nice keepers as well. The guys released numerous fish in the 22" - 23 3/4" range, which is a good sight to see. A mix of grunts, mango's and mackerel filled out the day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Sugarmill Gang...

Always a blast with Bill, Jerry and Roland. These guys love to fish and it sure shows. We had a terrific day on red fish with live shrimp on the points and fun on the rock piles. The rocks produced lots of fine mangrove snapper, grunts, grouper and Spanish mackerel. Live shrimp on a Hank Brown, did the trick. I thank you all and I always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

What a nice mix of species today our of Homosassa and Casey and Avery were my guests. I kept it simple today and we headed West to 10ft of water and made some long drifts. The rods were loaded with MirrOlure Lil' Johns and they kept us busy. I really enjoy this type of fishing as it's pretty steady action and every cast is a surprise. I thank you both for a great one and here's Avery with her first trout.... Capt. Dan
