  • 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.

  • Late start but lots of keepers

    I wanna take this very moment to say, “man, it’s great to live in Florida.” We have the gators, great fishing, super weather. There's some things I'm not sure about but these are sure bets. 
    

    We had a really tough tide this weekend but I had two half-day trips Saturday with some very cool new clients and some ol’ local folks  and did a lil’ pre-fishing Sunday afternoon. All I have to say is, if anyone says to you that high pressure and blue bird skies won't shut down a bite…..well, it will.

  • Love is in the air

    Happy Valentines week. There's a pretty big deal every year around Valentines Day. Yep,kindof a big thing around my house - it means that my birthday is two weeks away. Means I'm getting older and wiser and that I’m a better fishermen. Hey, this is my storyline and I’ma gonna tell it how I wanna.

  • Fishing with Cap'n. Danny Allen

    Happy New Year everybody. I hope everybody had a safe and happy holiday season. Now it's time to return to reality — back to work, back to the grind.

    We had a couple of trips this weekend never really doing much, fishing real hard and boating a fish here and there. The best way to describe fishing right now "wishy washy." I took a group of kinda local boys out of Fenimore Mill condos Saturday. We fished pretty hard and got one nice redfish and few bites. But we never figured things out, so we headed in early to catch the Gators playing football.

  • Winter time is the best time to visit the Refuge

    Cedar Key resident, Bob Hudson recently visited the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge with a friend - in an attempt to hunt hogs. While they didn’t shoot any hogs, Hudson did shoot some really interesting photographs.

  • Thanks for good weather, good fishing

     Well the weather is good. The fish are biting great, but the phones have slowed way down. Families get pretty busy this time of year and fishing charters are kinda last on the list.

  • Fishing with Capt'n Danny Allen


    Everyone, the phrase for
    the week is "Backcountry
    Bonanza." I have been wearin'
    it out, cause this is my second
    most favorite fishing season.
    I love to fish cooling temperatures.
    This pre-winter
    period of time is great for
    those adventurous anglers that
    aren't scared to dent a prop
    blade.
    Getting back to those
    honey holes can make that
    happen for ya'. This time of
    the year the trout and redfish
