My wife and I and our 2 girls (10 & 13) booked a full day trip with Dave in April. His boat was clean and fishing gear was ready to go. Once we were anchored at the first spot Dave took the time to show my girls how to cast the bait and properly retrieve a fish. They started to catch fish right away. They out fished me (as predicted by Dave) and caught nice keeper Sheepshead and Pompano. A friendly Dolphin showed up and got close enough for us to touch its nose. At lunchtime Dave ran us to a local island restaurant and we had a nice meal. After lunch my wife and 10 yr old were tired of fishing so Dave brought them to a beach area with very few people where they could swim and collect sea shells. Meanwhile we fished nearby for Sea-Trout. A new fishing method was introduced and Dave worked with my daughter until she got it right and started catching fish. We caught lots of Trout! After a while we picked up the Beach bums and Dave brought us to a small cove in the Mangroves where some Manatees were. There must have been a dozen of them! He got us very close without disturbing them. I would recommend Dave for a family or a sport fishing trip. I enjoyed his company, knowledge and the smiles he put on my girls faces. Can’t wait to go again.
