I was down from PA on a business trip and booked this fishing trip last minute. Captain Dan owner and operator meet us at Jetty Park at 7am sharp, he had the boat in the water waiting on us when we showed up at 7. We loaded our cooler with sandwiches and drinks and away we went. Captain Dan provided everything we needed poles, baits, hooks, and ice for the fish. We ran about 10 minutes out before he baited our poles and told us where to cast and wham fish on just like that. He put us on a school of triple tails and we had fish in the boat. We fished that hole out and moved to the next one, this went on for the next 5 hours. Now not every fish we caught was a keeper put he put us on fish at every hole. It was a fun and relaxing day. He was there to put fish on your line and that’s what he did. He baited your hook if you wanted took the fish off your hook for you, if you tangled up or busted a hook off he handed you another pole while he worked on that one. I wish we would have taken the all day trip. If your looking for a near shore trip book with Captain Dan he will take good care of you.

Our trip had to be canceled due to weather concerns. Captain Dan handled the situation professionally with safety as the first concern. Communication and a detailed description of the situation was top notch. Although this trip could not be rescheduled due to travel schedule, We look forward to our next opportunity to go out with the crew.

Captain Dan called me the morning of our trip and canceled do to rain(by him) it didn’t rain at all. We went out next day and he talked me out of a near shore to an inshore trip for $50 less, because of rough seas. We stayed in the channel the entire trip. I thought the inshore trip consisted of more than the channel, I thought it would have been in the Banana River. Spent half and hour alone in the locks. Yeah!

I sincerely apologize you were disappointed with your fishing experience this past Wednesday August 31st. The weather in Florida can be unpredictable and challenging to forecast, especially with large weather patterns such as tropical storm Hermione in the gulf. The decision to cancel was made on years of experience and my honest prediction of how a large thunderstorm system would behave that morning.

I apologize for the confusion as to what kind of trip was possible. Either day, Tuesday August 30 or Wednesday August 31, the sea state was such that would have made any nearshore or offshore trip unsafe. The area in which we traveled through the locks to enter, where you caught redfish, flounder, seatrout, mangrove snapper and Jack Crevalle, was the Banana River.

I always strive to provide my clients with a safe and enjoyable fishing experience, giving the best that the Space Coast has to offer. I wish you best of luck on your next fishing excursion.

Fishing with Captain Dan was an awesome experience. This guy really knows his stuff been on many fishing trips but not even compare to the experience I had not enough words to describe how great of a trip it was we are planning to book another trip by the end of this year can’t wait. We probably caught 30 red snapper in an hour and a half or so. Plus Barracuda triggerfish and we even landed a shark

Boat and crew were good. Lost fish due to line weight thought captain should’ve known this and been more prepared for larger fish. Lost Tarpon 15 feet from boat and comment about line weight was made.

Half day inshore fishing.  My so an d I went out with Captain Dan and it was great. Dan is very knowledgeable of the area and was very attentive to our needs. Caught many fish from a variety of species. Excellent experience. Highly recommend.

We did not catch keepers in redfish and sea trout but we did have a good time.  Captain Dan was very professional and did a great job with my grandsons.  He tried very hard but the fish were just not very cooperative.  All in all we had a great time and hopefully next time will be better.

Thanks for positive feedback Jack. I am glad you and your grandsons enjoyed you day. Maybe next time the fish will be a bit more cooperative. Hope to see you again.

Our fishing trip was great! Dan talked with us to determine what we wanted from our trip and delivered. We caught lots of fish even though the weather was windy and it was nearly a full moon. Dan was informative about the area and fishing. He used circle hooks so that we could catch and release fish that did not meet our needs. Dan answered all of my texts for directions and times and he was waiting on us at the boat ramp when we got there five minutes early. I would rate our trip as a nine and we would love to fish with Dan again! The only thing that would have made it better was to catch an elusive Redfish but catching 3 snook was really fun too!
