Our adventure with Captain Dave was great from the word go. Our trip started out at 6:15am and we were back in by noon. He got us on the fish and insured that we had a great time. He was very informative of about not only fishing in the area ...Read More but the area of South Padre itself. My family and I will be back and Captain Dave is our guy.
We had an amazing time with Capt Dave. Taught us how to catch trout and Reds. We had several storms around us but Capt Dave made sure to keep us safe at all times. I would highly recommend Capt Dave
