Crystal River Mix...

A great day to wrap up my month of June with Joe on board for an awesome mixed bag. Joe and I covered some ground today as we began tackling a fine limit of gags and a whopper cobia. Dropping down live pin fish got it done for us and really caught a lot of gags in the 23" range. We added a couple trout and to top off the day, we were blessed and boated a beautiful tarpon just under the hundred pound mark. What a day and great job Joe. As I write this I'm backing my bags and headed to Wyoming Monday morning. I'll be there the entire month of July and I'll do my best to post some updates and fishing reports. All the best and see you all soon.... Capt. Dan

Good Weather Gags...

A terrific day both weather wise and the bite was pretty good for Paul and Cindy today. The husband and wife team met me at the Plantation on Crystal River and we headed West. I loaded the live wells with pin fish and set up on a couple shallow rocks and ledges. The action was pretty good on the morning incoming tide and the team knocked down three real nice keepers in no time. It took a little bit to get the fourth fish, but we got'em and the day was a success. I thank you both for the great day and congratulations on a fine catch... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Gags....

A solid day grouper digging with Dean and Jim and the guys did great. I made a run out to 22ft of water and the gags were there. Live pin fish on bottom rigs were the deal and we even caught a whopper of a nurse shark as well. A couple grunts and snapper were added to the cooler and the heat eventually made us call it a day. Thank you both and great job... Capt. Dan

Today was Jim's last day and we finished up his couple of days, tackling some grouper. Him and I ran offshore a bit to around 15ft of water and dropped down on a little ledge for some gags. The action started right away and we turned some good ones. Live pin fish and pig fish were the ticket and grouper on the grill was what's for dinner. The last week has been great from snook, red fish, tarpon and grouper; we covered a lot of ground and fished in some really tough condition's. I thank you buddy and Jim, myself and our wives will be in Wyoming for the month of July enjoying the trout streams... Capt. Dan

Grouper w/ the Mayor....

Finally the weather has changed and it was good to get back out. On today's trip I had the pleasure of having Crystal River's Mayor, Joe Meek on board and his family. He's been wanting to fish with me for such a long time and I had a opening and they were ready to go. I took the guys shallow water grouper digging and they loved it. We fished some small ledges and sent down the pin fish. The team totaled over 20 gags with a couple real nice keepers for their trip. I thank you all and you did a great job on the fish... Capt. Dan

Yes lightning does strike twice and that's exactly what we experienced today with Dan and Roy for day two. Today's charter was exactly the same as yesterday's trip and the grouper were in a great mood. The team turned some good ones with a 14lber being the largest. I made a stop on the way home on the permit area and we made it happen as Roy landed a beauty to wrap up the day. A tremendous couple of days despite the June heat and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

First Season Gags...

A break from the tarpon grind and Roy and Dan were my first clients to tackle the opening season gags. Well, they sure didn't disappoint and the team did great. We used live pin fish and sent them down on bottom rigs to turn the grouper . The water is exceptionally clear, so I backed off my leader size and it made a difference. On the way home after a fine limit of grouper, I made a stop at an area I've been seeing permit and the guys said go for it captain; and let me catch my first permit. It was a beauty at 12lbs and you can see the pictures on my Crystal River Fishing Facebook page. A great day and I thank you both....Capt. Dan

Cobia and Gags...

A good day with Bob from Pennsylvania on board and we always have fun. We covered lots of ground from chasing some tarpon down South, to rock pile fishing offshore. We had some shots at some rolling tarpon this morning, but they were not in a feeding mood for us. So, we made a run offshore to some rock piles and had some good action on grouper and cobia. Also, we had an offshore snook hooked up for a bit as well and it was a hefty one before it cut us off. Grouper season opens Saturday and it looks like it should be pretty good with all the fish around right now. I thank you Bob and I'll see you tomorrow... Capt. Dan

Wild Day...

A day to remember with my long time client Mishel on board. Her and I had a blast today and we saw some really exciting fishing. We made a couple stops this morning to grab some live baits and we then ran offshore to bend the rod. I set up and we immediately hook up on a cobia who greeted us right under the boat. As we're fighting this cobia, we see a huge offshore snook come below him as I quickly rig up and actually hook that fish. Unfortunately though, my live pinfish double hooked itself and he escaped to be caught next time. We release the cobia, send down the next bait and hook up on a hefty gag grouper in the 14lb range. As the grouper comes up, he gets eaten by a huge jewfish well over 300lbs and the battle is on. We play the tug of war game and he eventually spits out the grouper and we bring him boat side for a picture. The grouper was beaten up pretty bad and we released him on his way. Now, moments later as the grouper is unfortunately drifting belly up down tide from us; a massive bull shark comes and eats the grouper in one bite - it must have been over 8ft long. A wild string of events for us and we sure will remember this day for a long time... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Mix...

A bit of a mix today with Ian and Michelle on board and we had a fun time. We began the day in the back country creeks and caught quite a few snook to start the day. We targeted the shorelines with DOA glow jerk baits and good current flow. We left the snook action around 11am as the tide stopped and ran offshore to see what was happening. The seas were calm and we caught a couple gag grouper and a pair of cobia for the afternoon trip. I thank you both as always and we'll see you next time... Capt. Dan
