Homosassa Perfection...

You couldn't of ordered a more beautiful day and was it ever fantastic. Today out of Macrae's on the Homosassa River, Dan, Gary and Lauren joined me for some inshore trout and reds. The trout action was real good as the tide rolled in, but we had to wait for the water to get going to turn them on. The team brought in a beautiful limit of hefty trout on DOA jerk baits and then we stopped on a hungry school of red fish, to wrap up the day. As good as it gets and I thank you guys for the great time... Capt. Dan

A great time with Jim, Ron and Lauren out of Crystal River today and we had a nice mix for the day. Our trip began jigging a bit offshore and we had the variety show going on. Trout, cobia, grouper, lady fish, etc... kept our rods bent. The trout bite wasn't to hot, but we caught a few. The tide started rolling in and it got right for red fishing. The reds were on and in a couple stops the guys brought in a beautiful limit of red fish. We did end the day on one more drift and added a couple more trout to the catch and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

Girls Team....

The wind swapped today and it sure turned the fish on. Kathy, Stefanie, and Riley were my team and they did awesome. I got on the late season sheepshead for the start of the day and they secured a fine catch. The sheepshead bite is about over, as it should as we end March. I did find a couple triple tail, but they sure didn't want to cooperate. We left the triple tail and made quite the run to red fish land and ended the day with a beautiful limit of red fish. You all were so great and I hope to do it again soon... Capt. Dan

Tough Windy Trout...

Not an easy one today with the low water and windy conditions, but the Miller team caught some nice trout for the day. The guys were here on spring break and we loving the warmer weather than Michigan. I couldn't do to much with the conditions, as trout fishing was going to be our theme. We stayed inshore off the keys using jerk baits and caught our trout. The fish were concentrated in little areas and we picked up a few each drift. The white caps made it tough, but we had a fun time. I thank you all and I hope to see you again next time... Capt. Dan

Team Lady Angler...

A super fun time today with the Ann, Olivia, Tia and Lauren from Settin' the Hook and Lady Angler Apparel out of the Plantation on Crystal River. It was a windy day, but we stayed inshore and did very well with some trout and a few bonus snook. The trout were all caught in the shallow water on DOA glow jerk baits and the snook too. We had a tough one on red fish, as we only had one hooked up, but unfortunately came unbuttoned at boat-side. I had a blast with you all and I look forward to next time... Capt. Dan

Family Day....

Now that was a late season cold front... I'm sure glad it's past and unfortunately I lost a couple days due to it. However, today was a beautiful day and I was able to spend it with my family visiting on spring break. We had a great day catching a few trout, sight seeing, relaxing and having several manatee encounters while enjoying the day. The future forecast looks great and I thank you everyone for the great time today... Capt. Dan

Rainey Trout & Reds...

A great day with Ron and Susan on board and we caught a nice variety in the rain. Jerk baiting trout started our day and the ever reliable glow DOA jerk baits, did the trick. We left the inshore scene and went offshore a bit and jigged up several grouper, more trout, sea bass etc... With a bunch of action under our belt, we finished off the day with a couple red fish and I thank you all so much for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Low Water...

Day two in Homosassa with the Beeson group and a big wind swap, blew out the water. It sure was low most of the day and it was really challenging to get a constant bite going. We basically had to catch a couple here and there to make the day, but perseverance paid off and we made a tough day a great day. The tide eventually came in enough to red fish, and a pair of nice keepers ended the day. Thank you all for two great day and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Inshore...

Good to be on the Homosassa River and it's been a while since I've been south. For today's trip, I had the pleasure of having Phil and Steve on board and with some beautiful weather, we caught some beautiful fish. The day began on the incoming tide and catching some really quality trout. DOA jerk baits along rocky points and yellow bottom, was the ticket. The guys secured a fine limit and we then went to live shrimp from Blue Water Bait & Tackle; and had success with a couple fine reds. A great day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Spring's on the Way....

A fine catch offshore today with Bill, John and Wayne out of Crystal River. The guys and I headed West and we fished the 30ft range since the conditions were so favorable. We anchored up and it was sheepshead insanity. We caught some hefty sheep's and released numerous other ones as well. With an awesome catch offshore, I ran inshore a bit and found the early spring mackerel. Wow!!!! The mackerel bite was awesome and the action was fantastic using MirrOlure Lil' John's. We had to go to heavy 40lb leader to help with the cutoff's, but we brought in a fine catch. A wonderful day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan
