Boca Grande Fishing Guide: Captain Danny Latham

Boca Grande fishing guide Captain Danny LathamI am a full-time Boca Grande fishing guide who fishes 250+ days a year and fishes 15+ tournaments all over the country. As a full-time Boca grande fishing guide I consider fishing to be my profession, not an expensive hobby. As a professional, I present myself as just that. I want you to come back and tell all your friends that you had an experience of a lifetime.

I am a fourth generation Floridian who was born and raised in Southwest Florida. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two beautiful and talented daughters (the 5th generation!).

I am obviously not someone who just moved here from “where ever,” opened a box of Cracker Jacks, pulled out my captain’s license and started advertising. I’m a full-time Boca Grande fishing guide! I don’t have any other job! I just FISH!

I have been running fishing charters for over 20 years and I have been tournament fishing for 25 years. Nothing beats experience! It is a fact, the more time you spend on the water, the more you learn and the better you become at catching fish. This holds true, no matter how experienced you are, because no one knows everything there is to know about fishing. The best Boca Grande fishing guides thirst for knowledge and look at everyday as a learning experience. I know I do.
