Captain
Dan Carey

Member since June 2017 Murrells Inlet, United States
Background
Captain Dan Carey has fished commercially for over 30 years, and has guided clients to multiple tournament wins, bagging his fair share of prizes himself along the way. Growing up on the Hudson River, fishing is in his blood, and he is never happier than when he is out on the water.
Techniques
I like to stay away from the pact. I build my own lures. I never bring bananas on the boat and ask my customers to do the same.
