Captain David started fishing with his father when he was a kid. He then graduated to fishing tournaments when he was 16 to see how well he could compete against the best fisherman in the midwest. Starting in 2015, Captain David followed his ever-growing fishing passion all the way to the professional level for a few years. In 2018, he decided he wanted to be a full-time fishing guide, to show other people how to catch fish and fall in love with this sport that he so much adores. Come join him fishing, have a blast, make tons of memories, and learn some fishing tricks to take home for yourself!
