David Riback

Member since May 2016 Point Pleasant Beach, United States
Background
I started fishing with my father as a little boy and continued as a captain after graduating from the University of San Diego in 1990. In 1997, the first Purple Jet arrived and we have been putting smiles on customers faces ever since! The Queen Mary Open Party Fishing boat became part of the fleet in 2011.
Techniques
I prefer light tackle over heavy or trolling any day! We do it all and hope to put a nice catch together everyday. I also have no problem changing it up when necessary!
