I’ve been fishing with captain Dave since 2006, and every year we consistently catch a variety of back country species - trout, snook, tarpon, redfish, ladyfish, tripletail, snapper, and sharks. When the conditions are right, Dave is one fo the best at finding gigantic Permit, which is the thrill of a lifetime to catch on the flats. Florida Bay has been dealt some tough blows over the years from Winter freezes that kill off tens of thousands of fish, algae blooms, hurricanes, and now Conrona Virus, and Dave has weathered the storm every time, and bounced back hard, catching even more fish than before. He is also easy going, friendly, and funny, so we not only catch lots of fish, we have a great time hangin out! Cant wait for my next trip

Our day with Captain Dave was incredible. It started with a fish on the very first cast and we saw non-stop action for the rest of the day. We wound up catching seven different species. My eleven-year-old son is new to fishing and Captain Dave gave him great instruction while being patient and gentle. Before we headed in, we hooked a big shark that my son fought for about 10 minutes and then landed it. He had such a blast. Captain Dave is a friendly and genuine guy and he's just an outstanding charter captain. We will definitely be back.

The very first cast landed a fish and it just didn't stop. Patient, diligent, prepared. Captain Dave will make your day of fishing a joy - whatever your skill and experience level. We had a blast. For back country fishing, Captain Dave delivers.

This was our first trip with Captain Dave. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary in the Keys. We basically hit the jackpot. It was a beautiful November afternoon. My wife and I are novices, and we let the Captain know this ahead of time. He tailored the trip around our ability, and made the experience unique and one we will never forget. His knowledge of the area and sight-fishing ability were on display, as we searched for Permit in the calm, clear water. About an hour into the trip my bicep was burning as he put me on my first Permit. I couldn't believe how much fight this beautiful fish had in it!. Later in the trip, he put us on snook, redfish, jacks, and snapper. My wife had a blast, as we watched the sunset on the ride back in after a trip we will never forget.

After twenty five years of marriage, my wife revealed to me on the night before our fishing trip that she didn't know how to cast, so I thought at least she'll get a nice boat ride and see some wildlife. After one encouraging lesson with Captain Dave, she was casting like a pro and catching fish immediately. It was a great morning on the water and we smashed Captain Dave's boat record for snook. Captain Dave is friendly, hospitable and professional- and it turns out he likes rhubarb. When you fish with Captain Dave, you will locate your instinctive desire to catch more fish and he doesn't disappoint. Thanks Captain Dave, we'll be back.
