    My boat is a custom one of a kind Proline 24 Bay

    I designed it and specially it built for my chartering business right here in Homosassa. It handels the shallow flats and offshore seas with ease and it's an extremely comfortable dry ride. It's powered by the finest; a 225 Mercury Optimax Saltwater series engine.

    Silver King 16 Signature

    A legendary skiff and "THE" tarpon skiff for fishing the Crystal River & Homosassa River area.

    I have it custom rigged with dual 109 lb thrust 36 volt trolling motors, elevated casting platform and powered by the finest - a 115 Pro XS Mercury Optimax.

Hands down as rough as it gets to still do a grouper charter today and my team of Shane, Bart and Nathan were hanging in tough, to get it done. Well, the day started by pulling bait traps and heading West to troll a bit; but unfortunately it was just to rough to get it done - so we headed inshore. The inshore action was good with a limit of red fish, some sheepshead and trout; but I was itching to get back out to some grouper spots. I stayed shallow in 6ft to 8ft of water and the guys did great turning four really nice grouper in no time. It definitely was a challenging one today, but I thank you all and great job... Capt. Dan

Monday Mix...

A mix on the board today with the Sans team out of Crystal River and Toad, Rusty and Tony did great. I had a late take off due to some electrical issues, but got them resolved soon enough. We did a bit of red fishing and did well, while finishing up tackling a couple real nice gags. It was a bumpy one again and I'll sure be happy when the seas clam down a bit. I thank you guys for everything today... Capt. Dan

Back on the Water....

Hello everyone and I first want to thank all of you that have checked in with me and sent prayers as I go through another bump in the road. I'm all healed up from my surgery and now I'm doing a couple cycles of chemotherapy. It's keeping me down a little bit, but we're going to get through it and keep on fishing. Today though, I was back on the big pond with Jason on board and we caught a mix of red fish, sheepshead, grouper and grunts. I had hopes in trying to tackle some snook, but the gusty East wind blew all the water out and made fishing the inside impossible. We dropped down on a couple ledges, released several sheepshead and found a pair of lower slot red fish on one of the outer points before we called it a day. Always a good time and it sure feels like spring out there... Capt. Dan

Frozen Sheep's...

Today was just about as cold as it gets and where the fish will still bite. Dan, Lauren and Joe were the team and with the gulf at 52 degree's, it was "iffy" if we were going to get some sheepshead to bite. I made a run to some ledges and sure enough, we caught some fish right away. The bites we had were really small male sheepshead, but it was encouraging. The team ended up with six keepers and released some little guys for the day, before the approaching cold front chased us in. I thank you all as always and here's Mr. Dan with an Ice cold sheeepshead... Capt. Dan

56 Degree Sheep's...

A pretty cold winter we've experienced so far and today was probably the coldest day yet. Ian, Michelle and Jeff were on board for the cold ride and with the gulf at 56 degrees, sheepshead were our plan. The bite was actually OK on a couple drops on the incoming tide, but when it turned to go out; it was over. Live shrimp on knocker rigs were our tackle of the day and a bonus tripletail, we picked up on the way in. I thank you all and great job... Capt. Dan

Year Opener...

A great start to the new year with Jim, Larry and Dean and the guys had a good one. The grouper rods are put to bed until the season opens again, so for now it's mostly going to be a trout, sheepshead and a red fish world. I do enjoy this time of year as long as the cold fronts aren't to harsh. The sheepshead bite is still a bit early and usually in to February, it really gets going. The team today did very well jigging up the trout and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Last of the Sheep's....

As I wrap up the sheepshead season today with the Worthington family, it sure was another good one. April brings warmer gulf water temperatures and it slows the sheepshead action down and I like to leave the rest of the fish to finish spawning and I'll see them next winter. I'm looking forward to more trout, cobia, triple tail, snook, and mackerel action - plus hopefully some early arrival tarpon in the coming weeks. Today though, we did do well with lots and I mean lots of little grouper, plus some nice sheepshead; but I had to really work for them. The rods did stay bent and I thank you all for the fun day... Capt. Dan

Good Haul...

Bill, Phil and Frank sure got it done today and we had a great catch. The day started right off with Frank making a perfect cast to a 12lb triple tail and that warmed us up. The sheepshead bite was next as we did OK; but it's just about over and I believe tomorrow will be the last day I try for them. I jumped around a bunch to get the sheepshead and the team finished off the day with a fine catch of trout to wrap it up. Great job fellas and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Nice Sheep's...

As we wrap up the sheepshead season and began changing gears to other species - Jim, Larry and Dean did a fine job catching some good ones. I'll be targeting sheepshead for about two more weeks and then hopefully, the cobia will show up. The gang today had a nice catch, but we had to work a bit as the tide was running hard and keeping the shrimp on the bottom was a bit of a challenge. A good day though and I thank you all as always... Capt. Dan

Better Weather...

It was still breezy today, but the conditions were so much better and definitely more fish able today. Dan, Lauren and Big Fish Bob were my guests and the team did very well. The day went so smooth, as the sheepshead and trout cooperated nicely. The sheepshead were in there usual haunts and the trout were in the creeks with DOA glow jerk baits, being the flavor of the day for them. A super fun day and great job fellas... Capt. Dan
