After having a good time with Dave 2 years ago, my son absolutely wanted to return to Dave to go fishing. This time he was lucky to make a really nice catch only on our second stop: 33 inches and 14 pound, biggest fish he ever caught. After that we caught a wide variety of fish on different stops and...

Had awesome time with family today with captain Dave. Fishing was kind of slow, slow for all boats today. Captain Dave moved several times trying to find the fish. At one stop we saw manatees. One swam over and allowed us to pet him. The dolphins were hanging out around the boat. Came close and got great pics. An adult... More

My wife and I had a great day on the water with Captain Dave. The trip was fun and the fishing was great. Dave was one of the best guides I have ever used and we will see him again next year. I had a great time with the fishing and my wife was entertained all day with the dolphins,... More

As a 3 generation family with little to no ocean fishing experience, we could not have had a more perfect first trip with Capt. Dave. He is pleasant, punctual, professional, patient. We had great fun seeing dolphins and a manatee right next to the boat at our first spot. Caught trout after trout, then moved on and got ladyfish and... More

Captain Dave offered our family 4 hours of wonderment and joy. He guided us to numerous types of fish, ranging from snook to lady fish to sea trout to sharks to a 300lb leopard sting ray (inadvertently but unbelievably). He was kind, fun, incredibly accommodating and skillful beyond words. The memories made on his boat will last with our family... More

The highlight of our vacation! Dave was an outstanding host. Not only did he know all he great fishing spots, the trip was also an opportunity for him to demonstrate his detailed knowledge of all of the species of the local marine environment - we all had a great education session out of it. We were exceptionally lucky in that... More

Dave had a last minute opening, and I'm so glad we were able to fill it. From the moment we met with Dave, it was obvious that he takes great care and pride in his boat and equipment, both which were clean and well-organized. He gave us his intended game plan for fishing and off we went. Dave provided us... More
