Cobia & Tripletail...

Another good day to be out of Crystal River with Joe and Joanne. The husband and wife team joined me and caught a beauty of a cobia and triple tail for the day. Cobia was our main target and we went 1 for 3 on hook ups, which is about right as they can sure be tough to keep buttoned up. Joe actually brought in a keeper sized gag grouper as the last cobia followed up, and I quickly changed gears as we hooked that fish. Live pinfish was our bait of the day and I thank you both as always for the good time... Capt. Dan

Good Haul...

Bill, Phil and Frank sure got it done today and we had a great catch. The day started right off with Frank making a perfect cast to a 12lb triple tail and that warmed us up. The sheepshead bite was next as we did OK; but it's just about over and I believe tomorrow will be the last day I try for them. I jumped around a bunch to get the sheepshead and the team finished off the day with a fine catch of trout to wrap it up. Great job fellas and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Offshore Crystal River...

A picture perfect day offshore with Ryan and Shane on board and these guys did awesome. We ran right away to the sheepshead grounds and the bite was good. Sheepshead, grunts, grouper and a whopper black drum kept us busy and it sure was some fun and steady fishing. Next up, we ran down dome triple tail and the fellas found three nice keepers to add to the day. I hope this weather continues and great job team... Capt. Dan

St. Patty Sheep's...

Another gorgeous day on the big pond with the Clements party and the team did outstanding. Non stop sheepshead action began our day and the rods were busy. We put our fifteen in the box and then began hunting triple tail. We got lucky and found a floating log that had several under it and we picked up a pair of nice keepers. A trout and red finished up the day on the inside and I thank you all for the really great day... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

What another good haul for Phil on board, for day two. We pretty much did the exact same drill as yesterday, but we caught our trout in the morning. Sheepshead were on the same structures and so were the triple tail. Some of the largest sheepshead of the year put bends in the rods, and a couple were over 10lbs. Two really great days and I thank you as always for the fun time - and you make the best sandwiches... Capt. Dan

Big Haul...

Much better conditions today and "Uncle" Phil was in town from Pennsylvania. It's always a fun time when he's here and we had an awesome catch today. A pair of red fish started our day on an oyster bar and it was two cast's, two fish. Sheepshead were up next and we soon enough had a fine catch. We left the sheepshead and ran down some triple tail for our mid day in between tide changes - they are always a welcomed surprise. To end the day we jigged with MirrOlure Lil' Johns and a good catch of trout made their way on board. A fun 1st day buddy and I'll see you tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Great Mix...

A perfect trip today with Larry, Dean and Nathan - and the weather was fabulous too. The wind was down so that gave us the freedom to go anywhere we wanted. The gang and I spent the morning jigging up some really nice offshore trout on MirrOlure Lil Johns. Fifteen beauty's came on board and we spent the rest of the day picking up a couple surprise sheepshead, triple tail and red fish. I thank you all and always look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Trout & Trips...

Some more absolutely beautiful weather with Bill and Jim on board and the Sugarmill team did outstanding. We spent the morning hours, leaving from Macaraes on the Homosassa River to some good trout action using MirrOlure Lil John jigs. The first hour was a bit slow, but it soon kicked in to gear and the keepers started coming on board. Some more good quality fish were caught and we finished up our afternoon running down some triple tail. Triple tail are always a bonus and I know you guys are going to enjoy them. Thank you as always and I'll see you soon... 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 Weather Gags...

FINALLY!!! A decent weather day and the conditions were much improved. It's been pretty tough to get out lately with the recent fronts, but today it was back on track. Scotty and Tim were on board for the day and we did quite well. The guys bottom fished some real big gags, plus sight fished a beautiful triple tail on a crab buoy. The gulf water temp is still in the 50's, so patience is needed for the grouper, as the bite was much later in the day. Great to be back out there and fine job team... Capt. Dan
