Came down for a long weekend and booked a fishing/sunset charter with Captain Dan and his 1st mate Jenn. It was outstanding. We caught a ton of fish (not huge fish) but it didnt matter. The girls went on their first fishing trip and had a blast. We booked roughly a 3 hr trip but Capatain didnt rush us and it ended up being a 4 hour trip with a great sunset cruise back to shore. The boat had plenty of room for everyone, drinks, fishing gear etc. I highly recommend booking with them as they are very friendly and honest. When we got back the cap filleted all of our fish and we had fresh fish for dinner. Doesnt get any better than that! See you guys again. Matt,Andrea,Dave,Michelle, and Angry Baby!

I’m that person. One who never writes reviews unless it’s really good or really bad. Even then I’m more inclined to write if someone has ticked me off. But this time, I’m writing because Captain Dan of By Request Charters in Dunedin was totally awesome. I have gone fishing a couple of times, but I would describe it more as throwing a line in, reeling it back and doing it over again and again. I don’t catch fish. Never have and thought I never would. Well, I’m here to say that Captain Dan changed all that for me. He has the secret fishing holes that are like fishing in a barrel. Grunts, blue racers, triggers, puffers, mackerels, groupers and several more that I don’t remember. I was with 2 friends and the 3 of us couldn’t reel them in fast enough. Together I think we caught over a 100 fish. We kept 30. And they were the best fish I’ve ever tasted. Captain Dan’s knowledge, experience, professionalism and humor made for the best fishing charter I could have ever hoped for. Needless to say we will be back again for more charters. Did I mention that Captain Dan baits your hook and takes the fish off the hook for you if you want? And he’ll clean your catch too? Doesn’t get any better than that folks. You can go for the bigger boat, but then you’ll have to compete with more people for the fish. And they just don’t have the secret fishing holes… Captain Dan is the man for chartered fishing! He provides the equipment and bait. You just need to show up. And one more thing; Captain Dan gave us a secret insider trading tip on the best restaurant in the area to cook our catch. And he was not kidding around! Go see Captain Dan and you’ll have an all-around fantastic experience.

Left the dock with 2 other fishing addicts on a beautiful morning in February for a 1/2 day on the Gulf of Mexico. Calm seas, upper 60’s and Captain Dan Adams, the Master of jokes and story telling while he guides us to the fishing grounds. Funny guy! We were well stocked with live shrimp for bait and dropped our lines. What a day of fishing it was. Gag grouper, flounder, mackerel, red snapper and an array of others totaling about 90 fish. Time to head back in. After docking Captain Dan became the best filleted I’ve ever seen. The pelicans and sea gulls love him for scraps. He’s quick and a perfectionist. Absolutely NO bones in my share of the fillets. Thank you Captain Dan for a fun day at sea and fishing. I’ll be back !

Captain Dan, one of the areas most knowledgeable persons about the area and certainly about fishing. My mature family of 5 went on a half day charter. Caught more than eighty fish, of many varieties. We had a great day. Caught a lot of fish to eat. We also caught many groupers but they were out of season. I would recommend this charter to novices and avid fishermen.
