If you wish to enjoy the hum of nature around you, a trip with Capt. Dave will hit all the right notes.

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!
