I was raised here in Southwest Florida moving here at the age of 9. I learned to fish from a local Captain. I am a service connected disabled veteran retired from the U.S.C.G. I look forward to hearing from you but am even more excited to meet you if you do purchase a charter in beautiful Southwest Florida.

I have fished from the North Atlantic to Kodiak, Alaska to the Florida Keys. I have fished Mexico and Central America. I have learned techniques to make me successful and am willing to answer any questions you have even if you don't charter my boat.

Trout on the Flats

Holiday Snook Fishing

December 18, 2016

Fishing the walls looking for the perfect catch. The wind was blowing hard but in the coves on the leeward side of the mangroves seems to be the place to be. Read Full Report →


Tarpon Time

April 24, 2016

Fished the Pass and the Beaches for Tarpon. The crabs are starting to come in which makes it half the fun by catching them before fishing for the Silver King. Read Full Report →

Lots of wind but didn't affect us getting into shallow water on the flats. Fished the edge of the potholes, looked for large schools of mullet to target the redfish. Read Full Report →

Went fishing on Wednesday, May 10, 2017

My fishing trip was excellent his equipment was good for the fish we were catching captain Dan was very knowledgeable of the water ways and talked a lot about the history of the area also even though I didn’t catch the intended fish the silver King we did see a lot of them. Captain Dan showed me a lot of the area to fish for many species of Fish which was great.
It was a great adventure and would recommend it to any advid Fishing person man or woman. I would definitely fish with him again soon.
Thanks Captain Dan and good luck

The captain is an excellent host and very accommodating. High winds did not make the trip what we expected. He made the best of a not so good weather condition. Limited sun shelter is the only drawback.

Captain Dan was an excellent skipper and worked diligently to make our time the best we could have.  He searched out numerous fishing spots, served as a tour guide and ensured our continued comfort.  I would definitely recommend Captain Dan and would use his services again.

Captain Dan made our fishing trip an experience we will not forget.  From the time we left the boat dock until we returned he made sure everything ran smoothly.

Thank you for the awesome experience!
