We love this charter and captain. He gets you on the flounder and has no problem teaching you or giving pointers if needed. He works hard to make sure everyone gets their limit. We took our kids 10 and 7 last year and went just...More

I have fished with David for 3 years, taking customers, friends and family. His work ethic is unquestionable. Limits every night.

Have been with Capt Dave multiple times and always had a nice limit of flounder. He is a great teacher and willing to share his knowledge with others. If you are considering a flounder trip, this is the guide to use.
