    It's October 7th, 2021, and it's not raining everyday, as it was a few weeks ago, so the water here in Cedar Key Florida has turned a beautiful green and the fish are biting real good. Redfish and speckled trout are feeding on all the bait schooling around the keys here in the shallow inshore waters. I caught a 15.5in. Pompano last trip out, measured nose to center fork of tail, and he was deeelicious.  Folks, I just obtained 7 new reels and laid down new carpet on my 24ft. pontoon boat. There is a big bimini top to cover you up when the sun gets hot and comfy fishing seats too. I can take your family of 5 out for a 4 to 5 hour fishing adventure  for $350. I'll fillet all your catch back at the dock and slip them into ziplock bags and fresh ice to keep them extra fresh. Eat them that evening, they always taste better when you catch 'em yourself. Please call 352-221-5463 and we'll arrange your adventure.  thanks, capt. Dan

  A 4 hour fishing trip for 1 to 5 folks is $350. 5 people is the maximum. I'll provide all the fishing gear you'll need and  fishing license too,then fillet your catch back at the dock . Call me at 352-221-5463 and schedule a trip. Capt. Dan

 A Red too big. We had to release Don Hyland's redfish after this pic. It was 1 in. over the legal limit of 27in.


 Above, Doug Cole of Chiefland, Fl. holds up a 38in. bullred he caught on warm day. A quick picture and measurement and I slipped him back into his world to breed some more.
