Service Areas:


Capt Dan is a Florida native and has called South Florida his home for over 50 years. He grew up fishing lakes and ponds for Largemouth Bass and saltwater for Snook and Redfish. Capt Dan is an Army veteran (Military Police) and is a retired police officer from South Florida with 25 years of service. Capt Dan is now a full-time guide on Lake Okeechobee where iconic fish and scenery are known throughout the Bass world. Capt Dan also fishes Headwater and Lake Garcia.
Capt Dan would love to take you and your family to fish these beautiful waters for a catch of a lifetime.

Capt Dan is proficient with many light tackle techniques and enjoys sharing his knowledge. Artificial lures are his game, but live shiners are always good. Provided on all trips are rods, tackle (live bait at additional cost), and water. All you need is to purchase a Florida freshwater fishing license, bring snacks if desired, and prepare for a fun day!

Capt Dan is also knowledgeable in light tackle & fly fishing on all area lakes, the disabled are more than welcome to join my adventures.

So, hit Dan up, and let’s fish!

Very personable and knowledgeable guide who will put you on fish even when conditions are tough. I also enjoyed fishing from the shiny, new Nitro Z20! Really enjoyed the trip and will go again next time in Florida!
