Crystal River Mix...

What a great day today with Steve and Billy on board and we ran offshore, where we left them biting yesterday. I got the boat positioned in about 18ft of water and the team sent down some live shrimp. We fished about an hour and a half and we had on stop action with snook, red fish, mangrove snapper, trout, grunts and some gag grouper. A couple of the species were surprises and the abundance of trout offshore, is quite interesting. I believe the hot water temperature sends some of the inshore shore species offshore for comfort and it's always an adventure on the big pond... Capt. Dan

Solo Steve...

A great first day back at the office and I had Steve on board solo. Steve and I began our day in the back country catching a couple snook on DOA jerk baits on the outgoing tide. The water dropped out pretty quick, so we made our way West to some rock piles and did well. Steve caught his first cobia and we hit a school of really nice trout on the same rock; which was a really nice surprise - I hope they are there for us again tomorrow. Always a fun time with you buddy and I'll see you in the morning... Capt. Dan

Hot Homosassa Reds...

The summer heat didn't give us break today and it was a toasty one on the big pond. I had the pleasure of having the Athens family on board and we spent the mornings incoming tide red fishing. I had to move around a bit to find them, but we eventually did. Live shrimp in the mullet schools did the trick and we spent the afternoon rock pile jumping. On the rocks, we had good action with mango's, grunts, small gags, mackerel, lady fish and jacks. Pretty steady action and it's always fun to put a bend in the rod. This was my last trip before I head out to Wyoming, so stay tuned for some fishing updates from the Wild West..... 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

Team Sugarmill Woods...

The gang was back on board today with Mel, Bill and Jerry and it's always a great time. I ran back offshore again for the good trout action and we did well. It was a bit slower than the last two days, but still pretty steady with a mixed bag. Jigging MirrOlure Lil' Johns once again was the deal. We also anchored on a small rock for some great sea bass action, plus releasing the usual grouper too. To end the day Mel brought in s whopper 35" snook and Bill a fine upper-slot redfish. A wonderful time with you all and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

The Novinger team with me today and we had a ball. We made the run to 10ft of water and some awesome action. Trout, sea bass, gags, lady fish etc... kept us busy. Watermelon provoker MirrOlure's were the flavor of the day on 1/8th oz jig heads. We secured a solid catch offshore and finished up the afternoon with a fine snook and upper-slot red fish. I thank you all for the great time and look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Trouty in Homosassa...

The Scott party was on board for day two today and the guys had a great one. I spent the day offshore in 10ft of water and we loaded up on the trout. The action was absolutely perfect and sometimes during the drift, we had three on at a time. Watermelon red/flake Lil johns were the flavor of the day and I thank you all for two great days.... Capt. Dan

Chazz Slam..

A nice inshore slam today with Carol and Bill on board and it was a beautiful day. I was out of Homosassa and I made the trek south. We used DOA glow jerk baits to start the day and caught a couple nice trout and sight fished a beautiful snook at 31". The tide got right about 1pm and we red fished the afternoon. It wasn't to great, but we caught a pair and we all had a great day. Here's Carol with a beautiful Chazz snook... 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

Insane WIND....

30knt winds, oh MY!!! Yes folks it was a bit blowy today for us. I was on a big group trip out of the Homosassa Fishing Club and we made the best of it. White caps and 2-3ft swells on the flats; it was tough going. I did the best I could to get out of the wind and Darren, Rich and Curt had a good catch of red fish and trout for the conditions. You guys hung in there great and I thank you. We'll see you soon... Capt. Dan
