Had an amazing day of fishing today with Capt. David. We caught way more than we've ever caught. Captain David took us to all the right spots and all four of us caught some good size reds as well as trout and sea bass. Will definitely do this again, Thanks Backwater Fishing Adventures!

This was such a wonderful trip. Captain David is so awesome! He is full of knowledge and you can tell that his 23 years of experience has taught him a lot. He put us right on the redfish and we had a blast. We caught several reds (4 slots, several little guys and a real good one) 2 flounder, 4 yellow mouth trout, and several spotted trout. I was afraid to cast out an open face reel (I’m used to closed) at first, but he showed me exactly how to cast and I was able to cast no problem without making a mess out of the line. He is most definitely gonna be seeing us again soon! Best trip ever!!! Thank you Captain David, your the best!!!!
