Dan Duimstra

Member since September 2017 Marathon, United States
Background
Fishing has been my only profession, having spent 30 years in the commercial fishing industry and over 16 years as the owner/operator at Shark River Charters. If you enjoy catching fish, you’ll love my charter. I like to go after Snappers and Groupers - you hold the fishing pole, feel the bite and reel em in.
