Captain Dan is a 5th generation Maine fisherman who lives within a half mile of his immigrant forbearers who had been fishermen in Denmark. He started by lobstering when he was ten years old, and today brings us weir-caught mackerel, squid, and even bonito. In addition to commercial fishing, Dan does other work on the waterfront building moorings and offering crane services for the fleet. When he’s not working, he loves to travel and roam the country. His favorite part of fishing is the heritage. And, unlike most other business transactions, Dan says, when you show up with fish, everyone is happy. His favorite fish to eat is whiting, but his favorite to catch is mackerel.
