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

A great day with Cheryl and Megan and the mother and daughter team had a blast. We started the day running and gunning for triple tail and eventually, we found a weed line that had some fish. The team used a combination of live shrimp and glow DOA jerk baits for the triple tail. I looked for tarpon, but no fish to be seen; but a bruiser cobia came by the boat and Megan did a great job bringing it home. A fine day on the water and I thank you both.... Capt. Dan

Trout, Cobia & Tripletail...

A little assortment for today's trip with John, Bud and John on board. We started the day offshore jigging for trout and we caught a couple on MirrOlure provoker jerk baits. Next up, we swapped gears in search of cobia. Well, I found them; but today all the cobia were on the short side. We did have one big fish break us off, and it sure was screaming some drag. John finished up the day with his first triple tail and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Snook & Trips...

Jason and Mike were my team today and these guys had a fun one tackling some snook and tripletail. I loaded the rods with DOA glow jerk baits and we hit the back country. The trolling motor went down and we covered some ground. We had 8 snook hooked up, but only 3 made their way to the boat. Jason laded a beast of a one at 38" and his current personal best. We left the inside and ran offshore a bit and found a fine limit of triple tail to wrap up the afternoon. A great day with you both and I thank you.... Capt. Dan

Triple tail Perfection....

A blast today with Ann and Michelle from "Setin' The Hook" apparel and these ladies had quite the day. The team and I started the day in the back country catching a couple snook on DOA jerk baits and they are always a treat. I did try for a couple red fish, but it just wasn't happening for us. So, I said hold on were going for a ride! Well, my triple tail plan worked out perfect and it was excellent. We sight cast several fine triple tail with live shrimp and in no time, we had six beautiful fish on ice. A picture perfect day and I thank you all for the wonderful time... Capt. Dan
