  • How to catch right bait to get that big one

    Well folks, from week to week I dig around in my back pocket to find a topic to cover in “this week’s article.” This week’s idea came from a picture a new client of mine took of me while I was catching bait. 

    So this week we will cover live baits and the fish you can target with those baits. 

  • Bad weather means Captain gets family time

     Hey folks, man it was a great week around the key great weather,  sunny skies, fish just jumping in the boat. They didn't seem to mind not one bit that it was very hot in the sky and kinda dang hot in the water.

  • Anglers can help FWCwith snapper research

    Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) request angler assistance with a research project focusing on red snapper caught in Florida offshore waters. This project will provide fisheries researchers and managers with vital catch-and-release survival information needed for assessing the status of this important recreational fishery.

  • Gettin’ back to fishin’ after missing last week

    Hey everybody, sorry for missing last week. I spent most of the week out of town and not on the water. A fishing report that is made up, not really my style. 

    This week I was able to wet a boat four days. I went to the Waccassassa River one day, Horseshoe Beach one day and the Suwannee River and my backyard good ol’ Cedar Key.

  • Cedar Key, home of the ‘Hazwoper’

    Cedar Key is now the home of the Hazwoper. What-woper? HAZWOPER - Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.

  • School’s out, fishin’s on, dad’s in hot seat

     Well everyone, school’s out. Teacher let the Captain’s fishing buddies out. 

  • GTO Airboat Tournament - a local success story

    The GTO Airboat 13th Annual Fishing Tournament was held in Cedar Key last Saturday, May 21 and three local men won as the third place redfish team.They were the renowned fishing guide, Lloyd Collins and his novice fishing partners, Greg Lang and Bob Hudson.

    It was a fun event and the GTO folks did a nice job. There were many nice prizes and lots of good food and fellowship. Most impressive was the GTO’s insistence that boaters idle their airboats when close to the public beach and shore, so as not to disturb people.

  • Having great family fun

    Hope everybody had a great and safe Memorial Day.

    My weekend started off kinda busy but slid right into some really needed family fun with the boys and my wife. I have been doing nothing but working lately, so the time was a must and it was awesome. Being from the walk of life that I'm from work during holiday weekends just kinda always happens.  This time I had a fall through deal and Sunday was fun day. Ha ha.

  • Now's the time to fish bottom line

    Folks, the news for the week is awesome Spotted Seatrout action. I mean good and it will do nothing but get better,  for the next month. 

    All of our flats are alive and well. The grass has begun to grow back. The bait schools are moving in and the trout are really happy about it. When the trout are happy, our clients are happy. When our clients are happy, our town is busy and well, I think we all know were this is going. Without a happy town, my boat payments don’t get paid. So all’s well at this point. 

  • Captain Danny Allen's Fishing Report

    I came back home this week. I know that sounds funny but, that's what it feels like, ‘cause I go to the fish. I spent the last two months spread out from Suwannee to Horseshoe Beach and the latest was Waccasassa Bay. These winters put a huge whoopin’ on the fish in Cedar Key.
