Awesome day of fishing with Captain Dave. He was helpful and made sure he took us where the fish were. Catching them was our job, but he gave great tips to help with that too! When we got done, he cleaned the fish and told us about the restaurant next door that cooked our fish for us! The waters here had so many species of fish! We caught flounder, snapper, and trout. We also saw dolphins, crabs, and lots of birds. Definitely recommend Captain Dave!

Excellent journey. We were fishing within minutes of leaving the dock and were soon on fish. Captain David served as a patient advisor for technique adjustment, which is especially important given the differences in bite behavior among the target species. Not bad for a day just a few days after Hurricane Ian blew through!

The man will put you on some fish on this awesome trip.

Our ten-year-old granddaughter chose this trip and had a great time learning how to and catching a lot of fish. Her grandparents were having difficulty keeping up. She even ate some of the last catch, which had been prepared by a Dockside chef nearby. There are several firsts in this. Thank you, Captain, for a fantastic time!

Captain David was fantastic; he put us on fish every time we came to a halt. He also shared his vast knowledge with us, instructing us on how to catch each species. In a half-day trip, we completed an inshore slam. I highly recommend it!
