About Your Guide

For Captain Dave, the reason to start running his own fishing charter is simple: "It's what I love to do!" Although he's a fairly new captain, licensed since June 2019, he has plenty of angling experience under his belt. He's been fishing as a hobby for over 45 years, and has explored waters from the Florida Keys, to Mexico, to Costa Rica, and Nova Scotia, and has been seriously fishing the Wilmington area since 2014. Fishing is what he loves to do, so he wanted to live the dream, and turn it into something more than just a hobby! When he's not out on the water, Captain Dave is a real family man: he has a wonderful wife and 4 great kids.
