Note From The Captain

Hey guys, I am glad to have the opportunity to write about my guide service. When you book a charter with me, it is different from most other guide services. My day starts hours before the trip and does not end until the sun goes down. I am true native and have fished these waters my entire life. My job is my passion and my reputation is at stake every time I step foot on my boat. I am a FULL TIME fishing guide who fishes 275+ days a year running close to 350 charters. While catching fish is always top priority, having fun is equally important. I do my best to keep a laid back, fun atmosphere that keeps people coming back year after year. A good attitude is a must! Every moment of your charter is strategically planned out so that I can ensure you the best possible fishing experience. 90% percent of my clientel is repeat and I consider them friends, some even family. I am always looking for a few new faces so please contact me for more information on how to book a trip. When you book a charter with me you are getting one of the top guide services in Southwest Florida. Bring the family, bring the kids, bring your friends and let's catch big fish, make memories, and have fun!

Fishing Report October 2016

Oh what a summer it has been! We were blessed with a very strong Tarpon season that yielded personal best numbers in both hookups and releases. With Tarpon season wrapping up in July, we switched over to big snook fishing in the passes and beaches of Boca Grande, Captiva, and Little Gasparilla Island...........


Capt. Dave, Thanks for a wonderful two days of fishing. It's not often you set out on a plan and it is basically executed to perfection (big reds, snapper, short groupers, trophy snook, and 100-300 lb Goliaths) in the world of fishing. I'm already trying to work on two of my buddies to come down there with me and maybe a have a repeat performance. I'll let you know if I can get them to commit.."


"Captain Dave! Wow, that is the only word that sums up our fishing trip last week. 30 redfish over 30" and 2 35" Snook. I am spoiled, For LIFE! "

"Captain Dave.Total was 20-25 snook (we lost count) with almost all over 30", largest was the one below, 42". Plus 7 reds from 29"-33" and a nice 22" gag kicker. It is hard to keep two kids focused on fishing for 4 hours but its much easier when your baits are getting hammered on almost every cast. We have a ton more photos on the camera but need to upload them. I will post one or two that are on my phone. Thanks again Captain Dave.
