Dayron Plana

Member since November 2018 Captiva, United States
Background
My passion for ocean life came to me at a young age. Born in Cuba, I was always surrounded by water. Our yearly family vacations were spent at a beach house. We would dive, snorkel and fish all day. Fast forward 25 years and I am still fascinated with marine life and all the wildlife that surrounds it. I decided to take a leap into becoming a fishing guide because there is no better office than one behind the helm. Now I get to share my passion with others as we make everlasting memories. Nothing better!
Techniques
As a fishing guide, I enjoy all types of fishing. From live baits to artificial lures. I mostly use live baits on my charters. It’s exciting getting the fish fired up and watching them devour the bait at the end of your line. The anticipation is thrilling. Waiting for the strike and watching the rod bend as the reel screams is an experience on its own. However, sight casting a laid up redfish or snook and watching them chase your bait is also extremely addicting. At Top Slot Fishing Charters, we cater to our customers. Your preferred style of fishing is also mine!
