About the Captain

Dennis Minnick

Member since September 2016
Fishing with my father off the Outer Banks of North Carolina at a young age got me hooked. After retiring from the military, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The thrill of seeing a child or adult catch their first fish is unmatchable to anything I've seen.

Was a great trip and I’ll book with captain Dennis again. We caught fish and he went out of his was to show my kids dolphins that were in the area. Was worth every dime.

We all had a great day. I was worried about how much fun or not your daughter would have and we know how that turned out. Look forward to our next trip.

Captain Dennis is an amazing fishing guide. We went for a charter trip on Sunday and had so much fun that we booked another trip on the following Tuesday. The boat is clean and well stocked. The first mate works very hard to keep you fishing! I have been on many charter trips before but the two trips with Captain Dennis were the best I had ever experienced. I will be going back this spring and will definitely be using Captain Dennis and the SemperFish again!!!
