Captain Dave Wood says the reason why he decided to start running his own fishing charter is simple: "It's what I love to do!" Although he's a fairly new captain, licensed since June 2019, he has plenty of angling experience under his belt. He's been fishing as a hobby for over 45 years, and has explored waters from the Florida Keys, to Mexico, to Costa Rica, and Nova Scotia. He's been in this area since 2014. Fishing is what he loves to do, so he wanted to live the dream, and turn it into something more than just a hobby! When he's not out on the water, Capt. Dave is a real family man: he has a wonderful wife and 4 great kids. Come join him aboard Nautical Mile Charters and become part of his fishing family!
