    What an amazing charter! My family (wife, 11 yr old, 8 yr old and 2 yr old) went with Captain Dave and from the moment we put bait in the water we were catching fish. The jacks were basically jumping in the boat as soon as a line went out, we were reeling in a fish we caught over 2 dozen and were entertained with a couple of dolphins playing around the boat. We then went to try and catch a redfish or two. Well we caught half a dozen and one was better than the next. We caught beautiful spotted reds, an absolute monster red and a trophy worthy one. I could not have been more impressed with the charter and HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Captain Dave was great with my kids and the experience is one we will be talking about forever.

    Captain Dave is amazing! He went the extra mile to ensure we caught a ton of fish! My son and I had an amazing time on his boat. My son says that Dave should be awarded an infinity star review. If you’re looking to catch fish in Tampa, look no further.

    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.

    My family and I just recently completed two days on charter with Captain Dav. He is one of the best in the business for sure. We’ve been coming down to the Florida area and fishing many different regions, including the keys and this was our first time to fish the Tampa Bay area. He put us on the fish immediately. He catered to both of my children which very widely in age, and was great with both of them, and made sure to include them in all of the days activities. On day two, we ventured out a bit and went and explored shell beach and some other tourist attractions, but he also seemed to work in some exclusive fishing spots on the way. I would highly recommend his services if you’re looking for someone in the Tampa Bay area to take you out on a charter or on a fishing trip. Great guy, great boat and great time!
