We did a half day with Captain Dan with (6) people including 2 dads and 4 kids.  Dan had over 800 known fishing holes.  Lines were in for less than a minute catching grouper and snapper.  We had 2 meals for (10) of us.  We rebooked for another trip the same week to catch monster barracuda.  All of us caught huge barracuda.  Dan was great guy and loves his job so I highly recommend.  Attaching our barracudas!

Captain worked but no fish. They should know on what’s hot or not. Wished they would share and leave the decision to the client on weather to fish or not. If this is a bad time of year then say so. I recommend the captain just do your homework.

What a great trip.  Captain Dan was very knowledgeable about the area, local history and taught us a lot about the wildlife and the fish we caught.  Highly recommend a trip on the Daydreamer!!
