Captain Daniel Zier and his first mate Garrett gave us an incredible family fishing experience. Our journey to seek out a private charter started out rocky, but was soon resurrected when we met Captain Dan at the docks (the hunt for ideal deep sea fishing isn't as easy as one would think). We were immediately attracted to his friendly and... More

This was my first experience on a private fishing charter and it was awesome! Captain Dan had the 4 of us in our party in the perfect spot to catch a great variety of fish and a lot of them. So many I can't remember all of the different kinds. First mate JJ is amazing and I couldn't have caught... More

This was my first time on a chartered fishing trip, and it was fantastic! Captain Dan and First mate JJ had us catching fish the whole time. JJ really worked hard to help us land the fish - couldn't have done it without him! We caught a lot of Vermillion and Mutton Snapper, an African Pompano, a Black Grouper, four... More

Captain Dan and the mate Garrett were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great time catching Mangrove Snapper, Yellow Tail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, sharks, Cobia, and King Mackeral. The best part of the trip was catching and releasing three Goliath Groupers that weighed approximately 40, 80, and 250 - 300 lbs. Memories were made on this trip that will... More

Wow, Wow, Wow, What a great time. From the start Capt Dan and Garret were fantastic. They answered all the questions we had along the way. Strong winds kept us fishing inside, but Dan and Garret assured us we would be catching fish. And let me tell you we did!!!!! Mangroves, Yellow tail, Mutton and Porgies, and of course some... More

Captain Dan and Captain Garrett did a phenomenal job. Were professional from the minute we stepped out of the car. Great down to earth fishermen that love every minute of the adventure. Made the day fly by with stories and consistent action on the fish. It is 100% true that you always catch fish. Dan is an experienced angler as... More

This was my first chartered boat experience and it was incredible. Captain Dan and Garret where very personable and friendly throughout the trip. We caught a ton of fish and Dan and Garret where very active in helping us fish. Would highly recommend this boat and I am hoping to go back out again with them!
