You can choose from various trips that will take you inshore, near, and offshore, as well as to gorgeous reefs, the secluded backcountry, and fish-rich flats. The grounds in this area are known for being productive and Captain Daniel Weeks knows the right spots for the best of making a great catch. Join him and have a beautiful fishing day in Mexico Beach.

If you wish, you can keep all the fish you catch and if you do not, simply release it back to the water. Also, feel free to bring kids on your trip as well.

Captain Daniel will provide you with all the fishing equipment you will need as well as with fishing licenses. The only thing you should bring is the snacks and drinks of your choice.

Member since April 2021
Captain Daniel is a lifelong angler and all around outdoorsman. He developed a passion for saltwater fishing at an early age and it soon engulfed him. He studied engineering at the University of Alabama and soon after graduation realized it was not the life for him. He had only one desire, chasing fish on the reefs, bays, and flats all along the Florida Panhandle. When he travels it is typically for one reason and that is fishing. He has fished the entire Gulf of Mexico from Tuna on the oil rigs to tailing Redfish in tidal creeks. He has also fished from Islamorada to Key West chasing Tarpon as well as Outer islands of the Bahamas for Bonefish, and Costa Rica and Mexico for giant Mahi and Marlin.
