He’s a full-service guide in the true sense of the word.

My friends call me Captain D. I have been fishing these waters my whole life, 25+ years. It’s a never-ending quest for knowledge, experience, and memories for me. So join me, book a charter with me today. Let’s make some memories and maybe, just maybe you will be able to tell the story of the big one that didn’t get away.
