Reds and Rocks...

It was a hot July day today with Mike and Kathy on board and we ran to the rocks for the morning hours, then we tackled some reds. I did make some grouper stops and tried several shallow locations, but they sure did not want to bite today. So, we bent the rods on some grunts with live shrimp and on the afternoon incoming tide; we caught some nice slot red fish. A great day with you both and I thank you... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Inshore...

A fun day on the inshore scene with Michelle and Ian and we had a blast. The tide was perfect for red fishing this morning and the bite was good using live shrimp on jig heads. The couple brought in a fine limit and released several others as well. For the afternoon hours we jigged up some trout, sea bass and other odds and ends and the day was a big success. I thank you all for the fun time and I hope to see you soon... Capt. Dan

Always a fun time every year taking out the Homosassa Elementary 5th grade students and this year was a great time as well. I had Mrs. Harrell's students on board and Robbie, Austin and Carson had a blast catching several mangrove snapper and lady fish. We had 14 guides on the trip and 50 students participate in both fishing and some science work as well. The Homosassa blue waters had plenty of action for us and I thank the entire group for the fun time... Capt. Dan

Offshore Crystal River...

A really nice day offshore Crystal River with Shane and Bart on board and in two stops; they had a great catch. I made a run to the South today in the 28ft range and did some bottom fishing. It was two grassy to troll, so bottom fishing was going to be the plan. The grouper were slamming both live and dead baits and in a short time, the team had their four gags. i changed over to live shrimp on knocker rigs and we began catching a nice variety. Mangrove snapper, hog fish, grunts and Spanish mackerel kept us busy for the afternoon and I thank you all for the great day... Capt. Dan

A great day at the Homosassa Fishing Club with my good friends Capt. Mark Zorn, Rick Spratt and Jonathan Hamilton fishing the Sheppard party and my team was terrific. The day began targeting red fish and we caught a couple lower slot sized fish and numerous little guys right away. The crowds were bad on all the points from the holiday weekend traffic; so we ran to the rocks for some bend the rod fishing. Great action with live shrimp on Hank Brown jig heads and the variety of species was perfect. We pulled anchor at 12:30 and myself and the team prepared an outstanding shore lunch. Thank you all for the great day and look forward to seeing you next time... Capt. Dan

A very pleasant day offshore with Joe and Joanne and we caught the big one of the year... "so far". I picked up the couple at the Plantation on Crystal River and we made our way West. I ran out a bit deeper than I did yesterday and the bite was awesome. We once again sent down a combination of live and dead baits and the grouper were hungry. Three fine gags came aboard and then "big Moe" hit. Joe sent down a live porgy and it got slammed. He wrestled the big fish, turned him and won the battle. A beast of a grouper of almost 20lbs and Joe has one to be proud of. A great day with a good mix of other species as well, and congratulations on a fine catch... Capt. Dan

Crystal River Inside and Out...

Another fine day off Crystal River with Christy and Andy and the husband and wife team did outstanding. We began the day running to some shallow ledges in the 11ft range and sent down the pin fish. The team caught their limit on just a couple stops and a mix of other species as well while on the rocks. I had a red fish request, so I made the run back inshore and we found a pair of slot sized red fish and some little ones to end our day. I always enjoy our days together and thank you both for the great day... Capt. Dan

The Rocks...

Dan and Jordan were on board again for day two out of the Plantation on Crystal River and it was a good one. The father and son team caught a beautiful limit of gag grouper using live pin fish on the shallow rock piles. We fished the 10ft range and did quite well. A mixed bag of other species also came on board using live shrimp on Hank Brown jig heads. That's always a blast and you never know what the next drop will bring. I thank you both for two very memorable days and I look forward to seeing you guys again soon... Capt. Dan

Homosassa Reds and Mix...

What a day for the red fish in Homosassa. The bite was spectacular today for my team and Donna, Chris and Tony did outstanding. I picked up the group from their home on the Homosassa River and we hit the points on the outer keys for the red fish. Every point we fished today produced red fish and free lined live shrimp under a DOA deadly combo corks worked beautifully. With plenty of red fish action under our belts, I ran to a couple shallow rocks and added a nice variety of grouper, grunts, mackerel and snapper to fill out our charter. A perfect day and I thank you all for the fun time... Capt. Dan

What a perfect day to run to the grouper grounds and Marilyn and David had a great day. We left from the Plantation on Crystal River, grabbed our live bait and made our run to 20ft of water. The gags were waiting and a combination of live pin fish and cut baits did the trick for the grouper. The team did a perfect job of bringing the grouper to the boat and added a nice variety of other species to fill out the day. It was a hot one though, so we called it a day after noon and we headed back to the dock. An absolute perfect day and I thank you both for the fun time... Capt. Dan
