Notes from Captain Dave:...Read More
I will strive to provide you with the absolute best fishing experience. I began my career as a Bass Fishing Guide in 1990 in the Florida Everglades, and as an Airboat Captain in the Everglades. I have always been an avid Bass Fisherman. I began as a tournament angler fishing the Florida Everglades. I pride myself in the knowledge of the Florida Everglades, its nature and what it has to offer, and most importantly, an intimate knowledge of Bass, their habitat, along with where to fish and how to catch them in the Everglades. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you on your fishing excursion
Captain Dave was an incredible captain and our fishing experience was unmatched. Three of us caught 79 fish on our four-hour trip. You read that right…SEVENTY-NINE fish! We caught a mix of largemouth bass, peacock bass, Mayan orchids, Oscars, and bowfin.
