Member since August 2017 Jacksonville, United States
Background
Captain Dave Sipler has been a full-time captain/guide, since 1996. He has been fishing since he was only five years old, since he could hold a rod. Even though he comes from a family of fishermen, with a grandfather who was a die-hard angler, Captain Dave is a first generation captain, mostly self-taught. He specializes in organizing kid-friendly and safe fishing trips, as well as putting his clients on top of trophy Speckled Seatrout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and giant Redfish.
Techniques
Inshore, river, inlet, coastal fishing. Targeting Speckled Seatrout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and giant Redfish using quality light tackle and 100% geared towards Florida style fishing.
