Tough Weather...

The weather got us today and I had to go to plan B. Dan and Rick were my guys today and we were all set to go grouper digging. The radar showed some storms out to the West, but as the morning progressed they intensified greatly. I had the live well full of baits, but just couldn't make it offshore. For plan B we hit a couple outer points and caught a couple snook. No red fish what so ever though, as I hit several spots. " I think all the snook are eating our red fish" - just kidding of course... We'll try it again next time and I thank you both... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Snook....

It was day two with my good friend Jim on board and we headed south to Homosassa. I had hopes in making it for tarpon, but it was howling way to much out of the West. So, for plan B, we hit the creeks back in Mason Creek and did well on the snook. I kept it simple, put the trolling motor down and hit the points with DOA glow jerk baits. Jim brought a couple nice snook in the 30" range to the boat and we saved the day despite the windy conditions.... Capt. Dan

Snook in Between the Rain....

We're back in the rainy forecast for a couple days and I did another late take off today. I have my good friend Jim in town for a couple days and unfortunately we couldn't head out until 11am. However, we did hit the window for some clear weather and did well on the snook. I eased him along in the back country and used DOA glow jerk baits on the points with good current flow. The skies began to turn dark around 3pm and we headed back to the dock to wrap up the day. A good time buddy and we'll see what the next couple days bring... 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

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

Slow Bite...

A slow bite for us today and the trout sure didn't want to cooperate for the first part of the day. Chase, Pat and Bob were the team and we spent the morning jigging for trout. We caught a couple keepers, but the slow tide and clam conditions made covering ground not to good. The lady fish were in abundance and we sure had our fill of them. We left the trout grounds and with the little bit of incoming tide we had, we picked up a pair of snook to bend the rod. I thank you guys and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

CCA Life Tournament...

Today was the annual CCA "Coastal Conservation Association" life members tournament and John and Leah hired me for the day. They had a couple categories for trout, red fish and snook and with snook being very cooperative lately, that was going to be our plan. We hid in the back country and worked some of the deeper cuts between the islands. Well, our plan worked and we caught the winning snook at over 36". We released a few others as well and I thank you both for the fun day... Capt. Dan

The second day this week with Dan, Lauren and Big Fish Bob and the guys had a really good Crystal River charter. We spent the first part of the trip targeting trout and did quite well. We used both provoker and DOA jerk baits and had a fine catch of trout. We found them both inshore and in about 8ft of water. The last part of the day we hit a point and caught a couple snook. No red fish for us today as I believe the snook are more aggressive and beat the red fish to the bait. I thank you all and I'll see you next time... Capt. Dan

Season Closure Snook...

What a super way to wrap up the spring snook season. The "boys" were on board today and Lauren, Dan and Big fish Bob did outstanding. We targeted the snook on the mangrove islands and every place produced. The guys had a double digit day and today was definitely a day to remember. I thank you all as always and great job.... Capt. Dan

Good Snookin'....

A really good snook day with Terry and Corey on board out of Crystal River. We had a perfect tide for doing so and the incoming tide had them fired up. We hit the outer points with DOA jerk baits and totaled eleven nice snook for the day. Both gentlemen secured a keeper at 32" and we released and took pictures of the rest. A super fun trip and I thank you both... Capt. Dan
