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

Inshore & Offshore...

A fun day with Bart, Danny and Shane and the team had a good catch both offshore and inshore. We started the day drifting some spotty bottom in 8ft of water and put a dozen nice trout on ice using MirrOLure Lil' Johns. It was a little bumpy with the stiff East wind, but around noon it calmed and we ran offshore. The Offshore action was good and we brought 5 cobia to the boat and a couple whopper gags. Bart had big fish honors with one well in the double digit range. The guys had quite the day and we found a new grouper rock that was loaded with some hefty gags for when the season opens... Capt.

Offshore Cobia...

A good offshore trip with Larry, Jim and Dean as we found our cobia we were looking for. This year the cobia are not here in big numbers yet, but were finding a keeper a trip and a few under sized ones too. The gag grouper action is still steady as well with some beautiful gags being released. Live pin fish has been the go to bait and here's Jim with his first keeper cobia... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Cobia...

The second cobia trip for Joe and Joanne and we sealed the deal with another keeper. The action was better this trip, as I pulled up to a hot rock and five cobia came off the bottom to greet us. We caught three of them with one making it over the minimum 33" mark and live pin fish was our bait of choice. Also, several gag grouper kept us busy as well and most were in the keeper size and released to be seen again hopefully soon. A great time and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

Cobia on the Board...

Well folks we found the first cobia of the season today and Joe and Joanne were all smiles when we hooked up. I did quite a bit of driving today and hit lots of spots hoping to find them; but it was a 4th quarter kind of day and we found one just in time. The grouper action though was excellent and we released some fine gags up to 15lbs on live pin fish. I did some looking for tripletail also, but they were scarce and only saw one small fish. Great job team and I thank you both as always for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Foggy Grouper...

Yes folks the old saying "the fog was thick as peanut butter" was especially true today. It was definitely not fun running around offshore today, but we made it happen. Matt, Mike and Ryan were the team and we did well. Bait was hard to come by, but we had enough to be dangerous and plus we trolled up a couple on Rapala plugs. Running spot to spot at 10 miles an hour will wear you down in the fog and it sure is stressful. However, it was still a fun time and I thank you all... Capt. Dan

Fun Grouper Day...

A really fun grouper day with Mr. Mike on board again and just in time, as the grouper season is winding down. Mike was just on board about a week ago and he was ready for his last trip of the year. Well, we ran to about 23ft of water and sent down the pinfish. We made a couple stops and turned some really nice gags, securing a limit by noon. I thank you my friend and we'll do it again next year.... Capt. Dan

Always a super fun time with Mishel and Earl and even tough we had some pretty drastic weather lately; we were going to give it a try. We left the dock at 9am with ice on the boat and were greeted to muddy, dirty water in the gulf - oh, and it was 56 degrees. I wasn't thinking to much was going to happen, so we ran to 30ft of water and luckily the deeper choice paid off. Mishel had the hot rod and she boated all the keeper gags on live pin fish. We made it happen in the tough condition's and great job... Capt. Dan

Pre Front Gags...

A fun day with Shane and Jason as we stayed in close today and hit several places in the 10ft range. The bite was great right out of the gate and immediately, we had a pair of keepers. We moved around little by little catching a few more, but when the seas slicked off - the bite was DONE. The weather is going to be extremely windy and lots of rain on the way, but I'll be back out there soon as it breaks. We made it happen and great job today fellas... Capt. Dan

The Russ Team...

The father and son Russ team was with me today and they were ready to go to war on some grouper. Mike and Jason fish with me regularly and they hit it as good as it could be. One stop, 15 minutes and a limit of grouper. Yes, it was that good and the day was made. You both did terrific and I thank you... Capt. Dan
