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

Crystal River Mix...

Tony, Rusty and Todd were my guys today and they had a good one. Today was a jigging offshore kind of day and we fished the 6ft to 9ft spotty bottom areas. I loaded the team with bourbon colored MirrOlure Lil' Johns and that was basically our bait of the day; until we went red fishing. While we were jigging, we just made long drifts and had a fine variety. With a sold catch offshore, we hit the points on the incoming tide and finished up with some beautiful red fish. A wonderful day and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Seafood Sampler....

We did the old seafood sampler today and caught the quite variety. Today was my last sheepshead trip of the year and we caught a few here and there for the morning hours, plus a triple tail. It sure was a good season and thank you everyone for the great memories. Next up, we ran back inshore, tackled a couple trout and Spanish mackerel while casting jigs. To end the day, a couple red fish but a bend in our rods and it was another beautiful day on the big pond. Thank you both and let's do it again sometime.... Capt. Dan

Spring's on the Way....

A fine catch offshore today with Bill, John and Wayne out of Crystal River. The guys and I headed West and we fished the 30ft range since the conditions were so favorable. We anchored up and it was sheepshead insanity. We caught some hefty sheep's and released numerous other ones as well. With an awesome catch offshore, I ran inshore a bit and found the early spring mackerel. Wow!!!! The mackerel bite was awesome and the action was fantastic using MirrOlure Lil' John's. We had to go to heavy 40lb leader to help with the cutoff's, but we brought in a fine catch. A wonderful day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Little Mix...

Always a fun day with the Kennedy party and Mike, Mike and Tim had a nice little variety for the day. Red fish were are first target species of the day and the bite was a slow steady as we moved from point to point. When the tide got right though, we left them biting plus picked up a couple trout. We left the inshore scene just before noon and trolled up a couple nice gags to fill out our afternoon. I really enjoyed the day and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan
