Member since February 2022
Capt. David started fishing when he was a boy. He used to fish near the rivers and streams close to his home in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At the age of 13, he started kayaking and tube fishing in the urban waters of the San José and Torrecillas lagoons with some of his best friends who are now also proficient Tarpon guides. This experience led Capt. David to consider becoming a fishing guide. He has since been guiding for over 15 years for different renowned companies. The captain is well-known for his hard work on the Tarpon grounds. He will use all his skills to get you the perfect shot at the fish every time.
