Dan first started fishing with his Dad as a 5 year old catching salmon at Davenport Creek and whiting in an old tinny; single cylinder seagull outboard that didn’t run properly, around Ceduna. Later moving to Port Lincoln and continued his keenness to fish often pinching a potato from his Mum and going squidding with a pin jag around the Trubridge berth or pinching a couple of pillies off the Tuna Boats to catch tommies and salmon trout; all with a handline.

In his teens he developed a passion for spearfishing, mostly targeting Strongys around Murry’s Point. These days you will find him chasing King George whiting at the Sir Joseph Banks Group or bottom bouncing the reefs south of the passage for Nannygai, Samson and other big reef species.
