“As a Professional Wildlife Biologist, avid Outdoors-man & father I can not thank Capt Dan more for his time on the water with me & my son.  His knowledge & craft are amazing to watch in action!  He & I share “Geek” wildlife knowledge as well as my 6 yo Nathan will tell you Capt Dan is allergic to “Not Catching Fish”! & that won’t happen I promise any time on the water with this Captain is not only a Joy but a Blessing.  Wait till next year and my 3 yo Daughter Katherine will be with us.  Either Landing Reds & Trout or Playing in the Livewell it doesn’t matter this Man Capt Dan will make any outing a Life Long Memory.” – Bob Tarter Aug 1, 2017

“Captain Dan did a great job!  Went Tarpon fishing for my sons 19th Birthday!  Had a blast from the time we stepped on the boat!  He told me he would find the Tarpon and definitely produced!  Put us on a lot of fish and landed a 150 pounder!  Made a memory of a lifetime!  Can’t say enough about how fun it was to be on his boat!  Definitely knows what he is doing. Appreciate you taking us out and making our day and visit to Florida memorable!  Will definitely use you again if we get back in the area!  Thanks for making our trip a Great One!” – Matt Glazener July 19, 2017

Dan!” – David and Renea Hilton Mar 20, 2017

“Captain Dan is the best!  He knows fishing like no other guide-he consistently puts his clients in the best areas at the best times under any conditions.  Spending the day with him is more than just fishing; he is an encyclopedia of fish and fishing knowledge, he understands weather patterns, baits, presentation, rod action, etc and puts in 110% effort to ensure you have a great time!  When the day is done, you leave with much more than fishy hands and tired arms!  He teaches, educates, and makes great memories for his clients-putting fish in the boat is just the icing on top! Captain Dan knows fishing and it shows!” – John Haney Feb, 27, 2017

“CAPT DAN is the best inshore guide around, he makes the experience great for everyone, excellent with women and children on their first saltwater experience.  You could literally not catch a fish and have a great time.  But that wouldn’t happen cause he will put u on the fish no matter the conditions.  I have been out with him 3 times since June and can’t wait til the next…” – Shane McLung Oct 16, 2016

“Fished with Captain Dan today of Perfect Cast Charters.  It was an awesome day on the water fishing with my Dad and Capt.  Dan and we caught a nice mess of trout and a couple redfish!  Capt Dan was well prepared, knowledgable, patient, and friendly and definitely knows how to get you on the fish!  We really enjoyed his company, felt more like we had one of our friends on the boat with us rather than a guide.  If you’re looking for a captain in the Port Saint Joe area, look no further than Capt. Dan! Can’t wait to come back in the summer and try for some triple tail and tarpon!  We had a great time with Capt. Dan.  Thanks for the great company and experience on St. Joe’s bay Captain.” – Mark Lamb Nov 1, 2016

“My Dad and I went with Capt Dan and it was a blast.  He turned me onto  Triple Tail fishing and now I’m hooked on this delicious fish.  If you are ever in the St Joe area and you want to catch the best of what the area has to offer, book the best inshore Capt and go with Perfect Cast Charters.”    Michael (Ryan) Conn July 28, 2016

“I booked a charter with Capt. Dan of Perfect Cast Charters a while back for the 4th since we’d be there for vacation.  I took my 2 oldest daughters along. Was hoping to bag enough trout and maybe a nice red or two to enjoy a fresh caught supper.  The weather would not cooperate.  There was a stiff wind, not sure of direction, but it was stiff!  All morning!  Capt. Dan couldn’t get us to his honey holes safely and I appreciate him not risking it with my gals aboard.  So we did find a few places we could fish out of the wind and waves and wound up having a blast with the sharks and a school of bull reds.  The girls were worn out by the end of the trip from all the shark action.  We fished around a shrimp boat that was taking shelter from the pounding.  This is not an advertisement but rather a positive post about a very positive experience.  I will book again with Perfect Cast. He’s a cool guy and was very attentive to my kids.  He strived to make it as fun and safe for them as was possible.” – Carlton Perry July 11, 2016

“As I said before, Best Day Ever! I’ve never seen anything like it.  Wasn’t expecting to hook so many fish but Capt. Dan put us right on them.  I don’t know when I’ve had more fun.  If you’re planning a trip to the area, call early to book the Captain!”  – Gail Rainey Holley  Sept 9, 2015

Memories made today will be with us forever.”  – Alex Harrod June 17, 2014

“I have known Captain Dan for almost thirty years.  I have fished for largemouth bass in ponds with Captain Dan.  I have fished in rivers (White river in Muncie IN to be exact) for smallmouth bass with Captain Dan.  It had been a few years since I had seen Captain Dan and in the interim, Dan had moved to Florida and started Perfect Cast Charters.  In April of 2014; I booked a cobia trip with Dan and that turned out to be one of the greatest fishing adventures of my life.  In two days of fishing, we bagged three cobia and a snowy grouper.  The largest cobia was a fifty pound plus monster and easily the largest fish I have ever caught in my life.  Dan Van Treese is hands down one of the best fishermen I know and ever will know.  But more than a great fisherman, Dan is one hell of a good man.  Do not hesitate to book Captain Dan as your guide; your trip will be fun, your trip will be safe, and you may even catch some fish in the process 🙂 …. To The Bones Captain Dan!” – Don West May 23, 2016
