with Capt. Dan Shannon

Home | fishing pics | inshore fishing pics | Spring and Summer Fishing

 Its' real warm out since I last wrote here from Cedar Key Florida. Air temp and water also. Fishing is great when you can get out between the high winds and rain storms. I had a trip scheduled for this morning, Wed. June 6th, but overnight the winds picked up and it started raining hard around 8am. Had to cancel. The redfish are biting up against the oyster bars and the speckled trout are all over the 'flats' in about 3 or 4 feet of water. There are tripletail floatin' next to crab trap bouys. All of em' real good eating and fun to catch. It might be a bit over 90 degrees F topside but I have this big shady bimini top I'll unfurl and that'll cool us down a bit while we fish off my 24ft. pontoon boat. A little shade and a little wind makes a big difference in the summertime. When the wind lets up some and its' a clear day call me at 352-221-5463 and we'll schedule a trip for you and your group and I'll fillet all of em' back at the dock so you can eat fresh fish that evening.  thanks, 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.
