We went on a all day charter on 2/8/08 and had a great time. caught quite a few fish with the highlight being a 45 lb. Kingfish and watching a 4-5 foot brown shark. Having the dolphin cooked at the Castaway when we got back was also a treat. Thanks Dave for a great time.

Dave I just wanted to thank you again for the great day of fishing it was one of the highlights of our trip.You defiantly put us on the fish and I learned the difference between a deep sea charter trip compared to party boat fishing. Thanks.

Hey Cap'n Dave! Thanks again for the awesome trip. I finally caught a fish bigger then me! Dale said the fishing was his favorite part of our vacation.. Here are the pics along with that one with Dale fighting a Goliath!

Hello Dave, my name is Joe McConnell and I hail from Sicklerville, NJ. I have followed your posts on the Florida forum for almost a year. I would like to take the time to thank you for all you have taught me in that time without you even knowing it. Me and my Dad come down every January for a fishing trip and because of your posts and knowledge last year was our best to date.

The wind was blowin’ and we were catchin’ fish. We all had a great time at the hump catching A.J. shark, tuna, and dolphin. I’ve never jigged for tuna before. It was a hoot! This is my second time with Capt David. He’ll get you on fish no matter the conditions. David takes fishing very seriously, will give you great pointers along the way, and he’s easy to work with. As a trained chef, he’ll give you a few secret recipes while he cleans your fish! Loved the sushi setup at the cleaning station…great touch. We had a great time and we’ll be back next year.

We had a great time fishing with Capt Dave. He has a beautiful boat that gets you to the fishing grounds quickly. We caught lots of fish. Thanks Capt Dave for a awesome charter.

Captain John Follweiler, Light Tackle Angler
Thanks for creating the perfect fishing day!You were able to help us put many fish on the boat both small and large in a half of day of fishing!We had a great time and created the memories I was looking for my family.

Read your new report, thanks for the compliment, we all had a great time and lets face it, the Captain can make or break a charter even if you catch fish. We really enjoyed your professionalism and friendliness and giving that extra effort (going out for bait at night with us). We will be down again sometime, guarantee that, just not sure when yet. It is tough to save that kind of money but not impossible. I am definitely hooked on Marathon fishing thanks to you!

My family and I would like to thank you for another memorable fishing trip in the Florida Keys. I have fished with many captains over the years and can honestly say that every time we go fishing I am confident you can put us on some fish. Your ability to work the open water and deep and shallow reefs is amazing. Best of all you can do it in one trip! I enjoy mixing it up and you are on of the few folks out there you can do it well! This years trip was truly a once in a lifetime experience. It was amazing to see a Mako shark circling the boat for ½ hour. Hi-def TV can’t replicate that! Who would have ever thought you could catch Makos on 100lbs of Swordfish meat? I am sure you are a local legend with that story. Now that we have hooked one, I can honestly say I wouldn’t do it again. That was back breaking labor and I am on vacation! If he didn’t break the line, I would have blown my back out or dehydrated I am quite sure. Fresh tuna sushi dockside was also a first for me. It is always a pleasure seeing you. Thanks Again!

Picking a Charter is always a little challenging. There is the fear of the unknown. This was our third trip to the Keys and the first time my wife and I would be fishing with Captain Dave. We had booked one day of reef fishing and planned on renting a boat and going it alone for a couple other days. Dave put us on some big Yellowtail and shared all he could to prepare us for going it alone. Had such a great time with Dave we figured another day was money well spent. We booked him again for later in the week and this time headed offshore for some great Dolphin fishing. Brought home over 100# of fresh Dolphin and Yellowtail. Can't wait to get on the water again with Dave. Great Captain, wealth of knowledge, patient, and best of all, good company. Thanks again Dave, Craig and Connie McKee
