Hi, I’m Captain Dan Cambern, and I started fishing at the age of five, when my uncle would take me on trips off the New England
coast for Blues and Striped Bass. By the time I was eight years old, my family moved to Nokomis, Florida. While fishing with my
Dad off the beaches, piers and jetties of Venice I gained the knowledge and the experience necessary to catch many kinds fish.
I also learned how to scuba dive at the age of ten. Soon after I was diving and spearfishing in the same waters observing fish in
their own habitat. This proved to be an exciting and rewarding advantage by being able to see what the many ledges, reefs, and
wrecks looked like and pinpointing where the greatest numbers of fish like to "hangout". By marking and saving these spots,
I have logged in over a thousand dives and several hundred Loran and G.P.S. numbers to fish. After working as a mate on a
charter boat and as a commercial fisherman, I obtained my Captain's License in 1985 and opened Hammerhead Charters.
By using over 30 years of experience and knowledge of our offshore waters, I will put you on my best spots to help you catch
Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Cobia, Permit, Barracuda, Sharks, and Goliath Grouper(Jewfish). Plus many others, such as
Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Bonitas, and Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and Dolphin. Tarpon fishing in World Famous Boca
Grande Pass and the surrounding beaches and Charlotte Harbor waters is a thrill that must be experienced first hand to
thoroughly enjoy, and we have the experience and knowledge to hook you up with the "Silver King". No matter what your
angling skills are, I will makesure that your fishing trip is an exciting and fun adventure for all.
