“Had to cancel 1st day because of wind but Sarah was awesome and contacted us when they had a cancellation we had a great time and caught some great fish. Went out on both the Black Jack and the Game Changer. Both are awesome vessels and everyone worked their butts off to get all the clients the best fish possible. A big Thank You to Sarah, Big Dan, Jesse and crew. First Class charter. DEFINITELY recommend.”

“I have lived in Alaska for over 30 yrs and been on numerous fishing trips. The is by far the best experience ever. Captain Dan is a remarkable guy and his deckhands Will & Dan are Top Notch. When you put these 3 with the Boat Game Changer you have a amazing combination that will put fish in the Freezer. We had 10 on the boat and limited out in 4 hours. My Daughter and my grandsons that’s 8 years old had a great time and caught their First Halibut. If your looking for the Best look no further then Big Dan’s Charters.”

“I’ve been a few charters in my life, but this charter with Big Dan’s has been by far the best yet. Captain Dan, Daniel and Will/Billy really did a phenomenal job with our 12 people group. We aren’t easy to handle at times and you guys slayed it. Captain Dan knew where the sweet spots were and planted us perfectly to start catching our fish. The crew, boat and trip were great and the weather pulled it together with some smooth seas and sun shine. Thank you Captain Dan, Daniel and Will/Billy you three were great. As lifelong Alaskans, my husband and I will be back to book more charters with you guys. We’ve found our favorite! Thank you for a great trip!!”

“Great guys! They love to put you on fish! Listen to the deck hands on how to hook up, and reel in, you will simply catch more. Big Dan and his crew, didn’t make it feel like they were in a rush to get back, you can tell they truly enjoy what they do! I highly recommend this charter!”

“5 STARS. Second year in row now with Big Dan. Been on both the Blackjack and Game Changer. Amazing rigs. Will be back, hopefully next year for an overnight trip. Dan and his crew were the best a fisherman could ask for. Boats are top notch. Sarah is great to deal with when booking. Big Dan does everything he can to put you on trophy fish. We come every year from Atlanta, GA, for the sockeye salmon run in Cooper Landing and halibut in Homer!”

“I’ve fished with both Dan & Jesse on both boats. Incredible fishing every time. Knowledgable captains with comfortable new boats. Big Dan’s Fishing is definitely one of the elite fishing charters out of Homer.”

“Had an absolutely awesome time out on the Blackjack. Our captain and crew were top notch and very helpful. I managed to get my limit of both halibut and silver salmon. I recommend Big Dan’s and would do it again!”

“The Game Changer lived up to its name. What an amazing fishing machine, and its captain and crew are top notch as well. Best vessel I’ve ever fished off of in 20 years in Alaska. Got some solid halibut and Dan worked hard to fill our bag limits. Highly recommended.”

“I’ve been out with Big Dan a few times, now. The initial overnight on the Game Changer was total fun! This pic captures the kind of fun found on the Game Changer! Book with them for a great charter.”
