    It was thrilling and Dan’s knowledge and enthusiasm was phenomenal. We can’t wait to go on another trip.

    I went fishing with Captain Dan and had such a fun day. We went fishing for red fish and flounder, which was so tasty. He is an expert at what he does. He knows the good fishing spots and takes catching seriously. He’s friendly, personable, and very professional. I had a great time and am definitely going back to him again.


    This is my second year fishing with Captain Dan. He out did himself this year, Getting me on the biggest fish I have ever caught. A 42 inch Red Fish. Captain Dan not only made my wife and my day fishing. He has taken my 84 year old father, for two of the best fishing days in Florida. Captain Dan will do everything he can in his power to get you on fish. From catching bait to making an 84 year old man comfortable. I plan on fishing with Captain Dan every chance I get to Florida.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our fishing trip with Captain Dan! After the weather report of 90% rain on our last day, we didn’t think we would be able to fish. But Dan took us out and the rain held out till after our trip was over. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and affordable. He expressed his passion for fishing and it was obvious in the patience he took with my family. I have never been on a fishing trip that had such a return. We are planning our next trip. Make sure you plan a trip with him when you visit the Cocoa Beach area. Take snacks. Oh and if you go, take peanut butter crackers give some to Dan and tell him Joni McClanahan sent you. He’s a doll. Best fishing charter ever!

    First trip with Capt Dan…last trip with anyone else. We are in the process of clearing schedules and planning our next charter with Dan. He had the right gear, the right attitude, and he was passionate about fishing. I highly endorse Capt Dan, and encourage you to hit the water with him.
