Tarpon Season Wrap Up...

A fun one today as I wrapped up my tarpon season and I was able to put my brother Jeff on his first tarpon. Jeff and I Don't get to spend to much time together and he's been asking me forever to experience a tarpon fight. Well, today was his day and he did great. He made a perfect presentation and soon enough launched one in the air. He had about a 40 minute fight and brought a real nice one boat side. A couple pictures and I finished the season strong. I may do some river tarpon fishing in August for them, but as of right now the migrating fish are just about gone. Now though, I'm preparing for my July vacation to Wyoming and really looking forward to it. I'll do some updates as I'm out there and I thank you all as always... Capt. Dan

Chris's Tarpon...

Another successful day with the tarpon and Jim and I had our good friend Chris from down South join us for the day. We set up again and patiently waited for the fish to come through. Soon enough, we had a little window of activity and we were in fish. Chris was up and he did a terrific job feeding a whopper of a tarpon. He hooked up and about 40 minutes later, we had her boat side. A really nice fish around 120lbs and she put up a great battle. Some quick pictures and we revived her to fight another day. Great job!!! Capt. Dan

Happy Tarpon...

Jim and I found some happy tarpon today and we were blessed to bring one boatside. The fish were migrating through as we waited off a point and the DOA baitbuster got us the bite. Lead the fish by a couple feet and a slow roll usually will get a hook up. They don't always stay connected, but wen they do it sure is fun.... Capt. Dan

Jim and I got a super early start today and we had some luck on some river tarpon at daylight. Him and I found some rolling fish and we each jumped one on fly and spin tackle. That was short lived though as the sun came up and we soon enough ran back in the creeks for some snook action. The snook were biting well and we had a double digit day on glow colored DOA jerk baits. A fun day but I wish this wind would go away... Capt. Dan

Fun Size Tarpon....

A fun day with my buddy Jim as he's here for a few days and we're doing a little bit of everything. For today's adventure we found some fun size tarpon in some back creeks and were able to seal the deal on one. In my opinion other than the few permit we have here, small tarpon are a tough, tough game. This guy fell for a DOA bait buster and we had a fun little fight. Jim grabbed a quick picture as I revived it and watched it swim away... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Woods...

Today was day three of our three day Homosassa Tarpon trip and unfortunately the weather just wasn't letting us make it happen. We tried to get to the flats, but soon as me made it out there we were taking waves over the bow. I had Tom along for this trip and I said lets get back in the woods to save the day and catch a few. Well, we did just that and him and I caught and released some nice red fish and snook on DOA jerkbaits. It saved the trip and I hope for sure we have better weather next time.... Capt. Dan

Nice Gags....

The Short team was with me today and we pretty much did the same routine as yesterdays trip. I did push put a little bit deeper and we did well in that range too. The floating grass is awful, so if your planning a trip it's a bait fishing game right now. I thank you both and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

South Gags...

A good grouper trip down South with Nancy and Bob and the husband and wife team did well. We stayed pretty shallow and fished the 8ft to 12ft range. Live pin fish was the bait of choice and fishing the clear water was fun. I thank you both as always and great job... Capt. Dan

Jim's Grouper....

Another good day on the shallow gags with Jim on board and grouper turned out to be our plan B. We had hoped in finding a tarpon, but the stiff SE wind didn't allow us to make it happen. I made the run to a couple shallow rocks and ledges again and it worked out for us. Jim turned some real nice fish and secured and fine limit of Crystal River grouper. Live pin fish did the trick and I thank you.... Capt. Dan

Shallow Gags....

Always a fun day on the water when Bob from Pennsylvania is in town and we did well today. We had hopes in finding a tarpon, but it was just to rough. So, for my plan B we stayed shallow and bait fished a couple different rock piles and ledges for a fine catch of gags. Bob did great and secured a fine couple of grouper dinners.... Capt. Dan
