Captain
Dave Houser

Member since May 2019 Lewes, United States
Background
I've been fishing the Delaware waters since I was a teenager, as my parents had a place in DE. Every weekend we used to head to the Delaware Bay for fishing. Times have changed since then, and so have my fishing techniques! I've kept up with the changes. I also run sea duck hunts out of the same bay, so I am on the water almost all year.
Techniques
Most of the fishing is drifting, trolling, and lure casting around rock walls. We fish the canals and all 3 bays in Delaware to keep up with the fish movements.
