“Great day on the water! ”

Davey Dee's Charters
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

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.

“Davey Dee’s Charter” was highly recommend to us. Believe me we were not disappointed. We had a great time with Captain Dave. He was very knowledgeable about fishing as well as FL wildlife. We laughed a lot and caught more fish than we’ve ever caught on previous charters. Kudos to Captain Dave, he’s a 5 star captain!!

Dave will not only put you on fish instantly but you will never feel more welcome by such a genuinely kind individual. It doesn't matter what you want to catch, Dave will find it. If you want to catch fish and feel like you are right at home, this is your trip! We caught our limit with a bonus shark and even hooked a Hammer Head!

If you want the best charter look no further than Captain Dave. We just finished our second trip with Dave's charter and it was awesome. Absolutely wonderful fishing, great value, and very generous with the time. This is fun for all ages, men and women will have a blast. All I can say is make sure you book this trip NOW!

First time i have ever been on a charter and it was a great experience. Dave has one of the nicest boats out there. He won't only take you out to his known spots but will definitely teach you a thing or two. He loves what he does and also insures that everyone on his boat is having a great time with him. You won't be disappointed! And plenty of fish will be caught guaranteed.
