Captain Dan Lewis was born and raised in New York, and has been fishing his whole life. He began fishing freshwater but quickly found a love for saltwater fishing, targeting Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Albacore Tuna and others while in the USA. At less than 30 years old, Captain Dan has already proven his worth and expertise as he has quickly added many tournament wins to his name and has gained recognition for his vessel. Needless to say, Dan takes fishing very seriously, and you can feel sure to know that he will always be thinking ahead and planning for the most productive day on the water for his anglers. If he had to choose, he would say that Blue Marlin fishing using lures is his favorite, but he also enjoys the year round Striped Marlin and Yellowfin fishery that Cabo offers. When he’s not fishing he enjoys scuba diving, free diving and going to the beach.
