Bass Fishing Musician

If you wish to enjoy the hum of nature around you, a trip with Capt. Dave will hit all the right notes. This multi-talented captain has participated in multiple Bass tournaments and enjoys hitting the keyboards and singing on weekends.

Hop on board the recently restored 21’ bright yellow Bumblebee Bass boat – you can’t miss it! As well as the captain’s knowledge of the area, the fishfinder will also help you get to the fish – and quickly, as this boat is fast. Once located, turn on the wireless trolling motor to get on top of them. Before you know it, you’ll be reeling the fish in. 

The stars of the show on these trips are Peacock Bass and Largemouth Bass. These have to be released after you’ve taken your photo. You’ll also be catching Clown Knife fish and other by-catch. Capt. Dave is confident you’ll catch fish during his trip, he has a “no fish, no pay” policy.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels. The captain will provide artificial bait that the Bass go crazy for. If required, you can purchase live bait before the trip.

Everyone over the age of 16 will need to buy a fishing license before the trip begins. These can be purchased over the phone. Feel free to bring a small cooler of food and drinks along and the captain will provide ice and water.

Have a camera ready – you’re likely to see gators and numerous species of birds. Pack sunscreen, insect repellant, sunglasses, and a hat, and you’re ready to fish!

Have been fishing since I was a kid in Ohio. Moved to Florida in 1985. Worked in tournament fishing. Started taking people out and fell in love with that! It's a real joy to take people fishing and enjoy the outdoors. Lots of smiles and laughs makes for a beautiful day!
