For Captain Dave Baldwin, fishing is his passion, and "being of service" is his specialty. Providing you, your family, and your friends with a safe and enjoyable Fort Lauderdale fishing adventure is what he does best. For Dave, a successful day is: providing everyone with special memories of a fun time to take home, as well as, bringing a great days' catch back to the dock.
What makes Capt. Dave such a great Captain is that he understands that everyone has different expectations of what a day of fishing should be. No need to worry if you're new to the sport of fishing because he loves to teach and he and his crew will gladly give you tips until you get the hang of it. If you're an "old pro" he will let you get as involved as you want. You're welcome to roll up your sleeves and fish your way. He wants you to have a good time and engage in the fishing experience to whatever extent you desire.
Out at sea aboard his 46' "Shooting Star" Captain Dave will be getting you on a myriad of open-ocean denizens like Tuna, Mahi-mahi, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda, Cobia, Dolphin, Grouper, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Swordfish, Wahoo, and more. Now while he can't guarantee that you will catch all of these species, if there is a certain quarry you're after, he will be more than happy to cater your trip around chasing it!
Capt. Dave will meet you at the dock with all the fishing gear you could possibly need. There will be a variety of different size rods and reels for matching the right gear for the type of fishing, all the tackle, bait, and fishing licenses ready to go, not to mention the Shooting Star comes loaded with a toilet, comfortable cabin and storage, up-to-date safety & electronics, the latest Radar, GPS, Sonar/Fish Finder technologies, outriggers, a live well, iced fish boxes, and tunes for your pleasure!
Capt. Dave comes prepared so all you need to bring are your favorite lunch, snacks, and beverages, your sun protection, and your camera to document your trophies!

Captain Dave Baldwin is an innovator in the world of sport fishing with over 50 years experience fishing the eastern seaboard from Montauk, Long Island to South Florida, Mexico and the Bahamas. He finds the fish!
First of all, the captain and crew were fabulous. They made it easy to find the boat, got aboard and headed out without delay. There were a ton of rods in the water from the getgo. We caught a huge fish right away! Changed up out bait for the different depths and we even caught a shark! My world was so full. The day was perfect. They even sent us with our freshly cut up fish to the perfect restaurant to cook it up for us. Perfection. Can’t wait to go back.
Great time. Great fishing started catching within a few minutes of leaving the harbor. Well worth it all the way.
Beautiful day on the ocean catching fish. Fun conversations with Captain Dave and Jed. Jed steered us to a restaurant, South Port Raw Bar, that would prepare our fresh caught Mahi Mahi for us. Great recommendation and we did indeed enjoy it blackened.
Fun day with my friends, could have been more fun with more fish. Only caught 5 Bonitas. Guess the big ones were not biting.
