with Capt. Dan Shannon

Today is November 27th and a beautiful 79 degrees F. Light breeze, clear skies, and the fishin' is great. Redfish are all over the keyes, just 10 to 15 minutes out from the dock in beautiful downtown Cedar Key Florida. Cedar Key is only 5 miles X 3 miles aprox. and surrounded by oyster bars and mangrove trees. Excellent fish habitat. The water temperature was right at 65 degrees F today. Were experiencing a warming trend and tomorrows water temp will get slightly higher. All you fisherfolks know the water temp means everything. The reds and trout will appreciate the warmer water I'm certain. Folks, the weather is just right to float close to an oyster bar on my 24ft pontoon boat and angle for a few big reds  and maybe cross the shallow flats and fish in 3 to 4 feet of water and catch plump speckled trout. I've been eating a lot of redfish lately, I'd like a big trout for dinner. I'll fillet all we catch and stash em' in a ziplok with some ice to keep the fresh fish preserved real well till' you get home and have fish for dinner that you caught. It's a big platform with swivel seats and big couches and I have all the gear you need. Call me at 352-221-5463 and we'll get out there while the gettin' is good.   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 so you can eat fresh fish that evening. 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.
