Founder and Manager
Dan Lee has been fishing on the Mornington Peninsula since the tender age of four. Beginning with his grandfather and father on the Somers beach in Westernport, Dan now spends most of his time fishing the south end of Port Phillip Bay. Dan has fished all over Australia and caught species including barra, kingfish, yellowfin, bluefin, jewfish, marlin, mako and of course plenty of snapper, gummy shark and whiting!
Dan's passion for fishing led him to open Peninsula Total Tackle in 2009. For some time he had felt that there was a gap in the market for quality fishing tackle and service on the Mornington Peninsula. No other store had a full range of tackle and stocked the big brands like Shimano & Daiwa. Importantly, Dan also wanted a store with staff who lived and breathed fishing. The dream is now a reality!
Dan's fishing reports from the shop and local area can be heard most weeks on 3SER 97.7 and Off The Hook on 1116, and occassionally on the 3AW fishing show on Friday nights.
If you wish to contact Dan you can either find him in the shop or sitting somewhere on the South Channel chasing monster Gummies!
