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

The wind is not your friend..... Yes folks, it was howling for us today and even though it wasn't the best conditions; we made a good day out of it. Shane, Bart and Murray we my guest and we cork rigged our way to a fine limit of trout. Watermelon red/flak Lil' Johns were the flavor of the day and some quality trout were brought on board. The tide wasn't the best for red fishing, but we picked up 2 lower slot fish and I thank you all for the great time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Trout & Cobia...

What a day with the Perkins family on board and they had a blast. The trout bite started out day and we did excellent . From inshore with popping cork to offshore jigging; we nailed them. The tam had a fine catch of fifteen keepers by noon and then we went cobia hunting. We dropped on one of my favorite ledges and picked up a nice pair of cobia to end the day. Free lined pin fish did the trick and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Good Day, Crystal River...

A good day on the big pond out of the Plantation on Crystal River with Ben, Dave and Paul. The guys and I headed to about 8ft today and we had a fantastic trout bite. We jigged up some beautiful trout using MirrOlure Lil Johns and also caught a nice mix of species. The abundance of small gag grouper is overwhelming and it's sure great to see the upcoming stock so strong. To end the day, I dropped on a big ledge and a fine cobia wrapped up our day. I thank you guys and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

A blast today with my good friends and clients Scuba Steve and Jack Mackerel. These guys on board are always a hoot and we had a ball. The trout bite was fair for us today on the outgoing tide and did OK with 8 keepers using DOA deadly combo cork rigs. On the incoming though, the bite was absolutely not happening; so we finished up with a fine limit of reds. We did land a small snook to complete our slam and I thank you both as always for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Chazz - Reds and Trout...

The final day and day three with the West party and today I took the gang way south off Chazz. The trout bite was exceptionally good once the tide turned and in three drifts, the guys had fifteen beautiful trout. I love fishing down there, but as many of you know; the bottom is treacherous. With a fine limit of trout, we trekked back North and ended the day free lining live shrimp and catching some fine red fish. Three great days with you all and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan
