About This Boat

Shark River Charters is your guide to the best fishing spots in the Florida Keys. Conservation programs have made the fishing in the Keys the best it has been in years.I specialize in Grouper and Snapper. You can also fish for Tarpon, Permit, Snook, Sailfish and Dolphin.

Enjoy fishing from my stable Parker, center console fishing boat which has all up-to-date electrical equipment and live bait well. It is spacious and comfortable.

In addition to the great fishing, you will also experience the pleasure of being on the water with all the beautiful colors ranging from the browns of the grass flat, to the aqua greens of Hawks Channel to the deep blue of the Atlantic. Dolphins, turtles and various bird life are abundant in this area.

Our 26' center console, open fisherman, is used for fishing all our secret areas. I offer half day and full day charters. Times may vary according to the time of year.

I provide all the rods and reels and tackle you will need for a successful fishing trip. If you have a favorite or lucky outfit feel free to bring it. My tackle ranges from 20 lb test to 100 lb test. Even though 40-60 lb test is often used, many times it will require hammered down 100 lb test to stop those big 20 lb+ groupers from returning to their holes. It will challenge even the most serious of fishermen and provide an action-packed day. I clean your catch, you take it home and enjoy the fruits of your labor. "Eat it quick and come back to catch more fresh fish."

You will need to provide your own beverages and food. To make your trip more comfortable you may want to bring rain gear, sun protection, hat and an anti- sea sickness medication, such as Dramamine, if you are prone to seasickness.

Since the early days of childhood, Captain Dan has been a fishing fanatic. Remembering the days of carrying snook gilled through his bicycle's handle bars with the their tails dragging on the ground is just one of the "true" fish tales you'll hear from this seasoned veteran of the trade.

Spending half of his adult life in the commercial fishing industry, Dan has fished most of Florida, the Gulf Stream, Florida Keys, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. His decision to leave the commercial fishing industry and start a guide / charter service was based on a desire to promote the conservation of this resource by sharing his wealth of knowledge and love of fishing with his clients.
