The boat that will be used on the charters is a custom built 24' vessel that was originally an old Aquasport. Since buying the boat, Captain Stu has completely stripped it down and built it back up from the hull, now calling it a product of Daneman Designs. The boat is now complete and features room for 5 anglers, a 250 horsepower Yamaha engine, a tuna tower, more fishing rod holders than most people feel necessary, Shadow Caster Lights, and a mister system for comfort on those hot Florida days. If you are interested in finding out more about the construction of the boat please check out our blog post detailing the whole process

Fishing Charters



   Stuart Daneman moved to Sarasota from Georgia when he was eight years old. At first he was terrified that there wouldn't be any good fishing spots like there were in St. Simons Island but all it took was his mother dropping him off at the old Ringling Causeway one time to squelch that fear. Since then Stuart has been on the water at every possible occasion.

        Stuart's entire life has revolved around Sarasota Bay. He got his first job when he was 15 working at Hart’s Landing Bait Shop. Since then he has worked on commercial fishing vessels and has even owned a stone crabbing business. Even while in school Stuart’s mind was on the water and he went on to help build the “Care Free Learner”, the boat used by Sarasota High School’s marine biology classes.

            Stuart is a U.S.C.G. certified captain and has over 40 years of experience on the water. He is also an avid angler and as used those 40 years to perfect his methods for catching every fish the area has to offer So if you are ready to get out on the water, drop him a line.
