Get Hooked Custom Charters

Come aboard Get Hooked Custom Charters and get ready to fish the beautiful backwaters of Southwest Florida! With Captain Dan Camp at the helm, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the plentiful fishing grounds of Bonita Springs for some incredible saltwater species. Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable family adventure, or want to take in the stunning sights of the backwaters, Capt. Dan has something for everyone.

Capt. Dan was born and raised in Missouri, where he grew up experiencing the fine freshwater fishing on offer. He moved to Florida in 2001, and fell in love with its incredible saltwater fishing opportunities! As a USCG Licensed Master Captain, he now uses his experience to offer flexible backwater trips that allow guests of all ages and abilities to have a great time. Capt. Dan is more than happy to show kids the ropes, and especially loves helping little ones celebrate their birthdays out on the water!

You’ll be fishing aboard an 18’ Hewes flats boat, perfectly built to cruise these waters with up to 3 guests on board (or 4, if 2 are children). She’s equipped with top-of-the-line modern navigational features, along with a wireless trolling motor and power pole – this means you can spot the fish easily, and can silently sneak up on them! She’s also decked out with all the safety equipment needed and a Bimini top, perfect for those sweltering Floridian days where you need a little shade!

Capt. Dan specializes in light spinning tackle with both live and artificial bait, and will have you hooking world-famous Floridian favorites such as Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead and the hard-fighting Tarpon. You’ll be provided with a fishing license, top-notch rods and reels, bait, ice, and water. Don’t forget to bring suntan lotion, sunglasses, and your favorite snacks or drinks!

If you’re looking to experience Floridian fishing at its finest, come aboard Get Hooked Custom Charters to make memories that’ll last a lifetime!

I was born and raised on a farm in northern Missouri and always freshwater fished the lakes, ponds and rivers. I just acquired a passion for the water and enjoyed sharing it with others. I've been living in Florida for the last 17 years and have spent this time saltwater fishing. I like backwater fishing for the simple reason you can go almost every day, without worrying about the weather. I tend to use live bait and light tackle, which makes it even more exciting!
