Background
Captain Daniel Varner has over 30 years of experience fishing the local waters for the amazing mix of big game pelagics which inhabit the cold, blue depths offshore. Every charter and every group is unique to Captain Dan, and he will pull out all the stops to make sure that this is the trip you will look back on in 50 years and smile!

We offer near shore trips, trolling for Spanish and Blues. Offshore, we troll for Tuna, Mahi and Wahoo. We typically bottom fish in 60' to 200' feet of water for a great variety of fish. You never know what you are going to pull up.
