Dave’s guidance to my son gave my son bragging rights that he outfished dad, a well experienced fisherman. Limited on reds in a short period of time, then scored on a few trout.

We had a great time on this fishing trip with Captain Dave!  The weather conditions were less than favorable as the tide in the bay was low and, because of Hurricane Harvey’s influence a couple of hundred miles away, there was an in-flow of fresh water in the bay.  These factors caused the fishing to start-off slow.  However, kudos to Captain Dave (aka “The Fish Whisperer”) who worked relentlessly to give us a great day out on the water.  His boat and fishing rigs are well equipped.  We used fresh cut-bait and once the fish started biting, the sport of saltwater fishing was on!!  When we thought we were finishing with fishing and headed back in to shore, Captain Dave spotted a pod of Red Fish, cut the engine back, circled the pod and what ensued was an action-packed, exhilarating 10 minutes of bringing in another beautiful Red Fish to add to our count!  We are already looking forward to booking with Captain Dave the very next time we go out, which we hope is sooner than later!
