Background
Captain Dave started fishing when he was 11 years old. Since then, he's been going back and forth from the Northeast to South Florida, spending an average of 200 days a year on the water. In his words, an hour on the water where the fish are is better than a full day anywhere else!
Techniques
I like to fish for just about everything, Sword fishing in Palm Beach is always a great challenge and a lot of fun.
