About the Captain

I began fishing with my father off the Outer Banks of North Carolina and became hooked, not with just the fishing but time spent with people that loved it. My passion grew over the years while I lived in the South Carolina Low Country fishing Redfish and Speckled Trout. Decided after the Marine Corps I would try to make a living at it. I'm still grateful for that decision and a tolerable and loving wife. Everyday is a new adventure and no two days are alike. How can you not love that.

This was our 2nd trip with captain Dennis. He and Dane and Andy go the extra mile to make the trip enjoyable. Took my son and nephew both times and they look forward to it until next summer when we will do it again.
