    This was the highlight of my year for sure!! Cannot have gone any better. Everything was on point and we caught fish!!! David was an amazing guide and knows these waters so well!!! Every cast we caught a fish. Even a few times the second the bait hit. (Fish on) I highly highly recommend going on a trip with David. Will not regret it at all. And you’ll walk away proud of catching fish with his knowledge of the fish and waters. Can’t wait to come back and have another fishing trip with David.

    Captain Dave. I want to thank you for an unforgettable fishing experience that I will talk about for the rest of my life!Cap is extremely… and I mean insanely knowledgeable and has obviously put in the blood sweat and tears it takes to be successful in the sport. Because today on a chilly, windy winter evening he got us FOUR bull sharks, a bunch of sting ray, and a bunch of fish I have never seen in my life! As a Chicagoan who fishes mainly bass it was an incredible experience.Captain Dave fills the boat with vibrant stories of his experiences and life and you end up becoming close friends with a great dude by the end of your trip. He has the best gear, a beautiful boat, and the patience of a saint because it took me a bit to get a hang of things but he got us right! Not to mention we tried the other charters of this area and they all refused to night fish. Captain Dave said challenge accepted and it was a great time!Thank you again! And everyone needs to use this charter and no other.

    Captain Dave was everything and more advertised! He was cautiously optimistic and honest. He put my son and myself on some redfish that turned out to be one of the best fishing trips we’ve ever been on. The best thing we can say is that we will use Dave again!!!

    Captain David was amazing! My son wanted to go on his first private fishing charter for his 7th birthday. We chose Shallow Point and it did not disappoint.We had an awesome day catching reds, snook, jack, and shark. My son can’t wait to go out again (and neither can I)! We are already planning our next trip.Listen to what Captain David has to say, and you will do just fine. He has a ton of knowledge and does whatever he can to make your day on the water as successful as possible.

    Captain Dave and his team did an exceptional job for our company fishing tournament! Thanks for arranging this fun event for us—you made it super easy for our entire group. From handling the multitude of boats and captains for us, to arranging to pick us up and launch from our hotel downtown, you made this a memorable experience for our entire team! And, we caught a lot of nice fish! Thanks to you and your entire navy!
