Trout Jigging...

A fun team today and we went back to the trout plan and Chris, Scott and Chris did very well. I took the guys to some good spotty bottom in 8ft of water and basically just made a series of drifts for some nice trout. MirrOlure Lil' Johns were the baits for us and the watermelon red/flak was the top producer once again. There's an abundance of under sized tout out there right now, so take a little extra care when releasing them as they are our upcoming stock. I'll see you all next week... Capt. Dan

Good Trout...

Another great day offshore jigging up some trout with the Sumner team. The guys and I fished in about 8ft of water and watermelon red flake Lil' Johns were the ticket for us. Lots of action with short trout, but enough keepers were mixed in to keep us interested as well. A few bonus mack's bent the rod too and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

Last Day...

The last day with the West party and Gerry and Paul were my team today. Once again we spent the majority of the day offshore jigging up the trout and the action was great. A nice breeze helped us cover plenty of water and the MirrOlure Lil Johns gave us our success. A fine limit of trout was reached just afternoon and we had just enough tide to squeak in a red fish before we had to call it a day. A terrific three days and I thank the entire group for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Day Two...

A great day two with the West party and the team did really well. It was extremely foggy this morning, so it took a bit of time to ease our way offshore. We finally made it out to some good spotty bottom in 8ft of water and we jigged up some really nice trout. In just over and hour the team secured a limit of trout, plus some other odds and ends while doing so. Watermelon red flake Lil' Johns were the color of the day and great job David, Scott and Mike...

Homosassa Mix...

A great day with the West party in Homosassa and we had a fine mix. We spent the majority of the day after the morning rains, offshore jigging some nice trout. MirrOlure Lil' Johns did their job bringing in a mix of species and the action was very steady all day. The team secured a fine limit of trout and we were lucky to find a pair of keeper red fish to wrap up the day. I thank you all and great job everyone... Capt. Dan

Back on the Water...

So great to be back on the water and I just finished up two fun days in Homosassa fishing the Scott party. My self and fellow captains Mark Zorn, William Toney, Rick Spratt, Zach Hoffman and Clay Shidler did very well with solid cacthes of trout, mackerel, and a couple snook. I mainly trout fished and we found them both on the shallow hard bottom points and nearshore rock piles. DOA jerk baits and MirrOlure Lil' Johns were our baits of the day and I thank you all for a fun couple days... Capt. Dan

20 mph Trout...

It was a blowing today folks and some gusts were easily over 20 mph. I had the Summner party and for the conditions, it was going to be a trout trip. It was not an easy one by any means and we worked hard from them pretty much getting a fish a drift; while moving around a bunch. The guys hung in there and made it happen as we fished the creek mouths. I'll be off for about a week with some some medical business to deal with, but I'll be back on the water soon as I can...

Hot Front Bite...

A big weather change is on the way and on my, the fish were feeding today. I had the pleasure of having the Dauchess party on board and they did great on the trout and reds. It was blowing pretty hard out of the NW, so we tucked up in the creeks the best we could and had a very good afternoon. Live shrimp was our bait of the day and I thank you all for the fun time...

Snook Season Opener...

Chuck and Kyle were the team today and it was the opening of the 2019 spring snook season. The guys had a pretty good day with a nice catch of cooperative trout and a couple snook. The snook season is just a couple months and with a slot of 28"-33" it's tricky to get one just right. Well, today we were lucky to get one just right at 32 3/4" to make the cut. We realsed some smaller ones as well and I thank you both for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Working for Them....

Well folks it's been a little bit tough the last couple of days on the big pond with the drop in water temperature and weak tide. The trout bite has been a grind as we've had to move around to find a couple fish. Yesterday with Bill and Roland on board, I could only find a couple to cooperate and today was a bit better, but still hard work. The team today of Curtis and Shane had fun with some trout and a couple surprise snook which were taken on the DOA jerk baits. They were a welcomed bonus as always and a fun catch for sure. I thank you all for the great day and here's Curtis with the second snook he's ever caught... Capt. Dan
