About Captain Dave

The Captain

Captain Dave has been fishing the south shore of Long Island for over 50 years. The Capt. Is a licensed USCG Master since 1987. Before that, he fished on every party boat that he could get a ride to. He rode his bicycle to the south shore beaches and jetties targeting Fluke, Flounder, Black Fish, Blow Fish, Blue fish and Striped Bass. Capt. Dave spent Summers fishing the beaches of Atlantic City, NJ, and off bridges along the causeways of MIAMI. He’s fished Panama for Cabrera Snapper, Roosterfish, Pacific Sailfish and Marlin and Hawaii for Tuna and Marlin.

In the 80’s the Capt. was able to get on commercial boats. He long lined Cod in the winter and was a pinhooker for fluke, Flounder and Blackfish commercially. Then it happened.

Capt. Dave was invited on a Tuna trip to the Hudson Canyon. Well, after he caught his 1st tuna, he was hooked. Captdavep never lost the feeling of awe, not only for catching Tuna but loved being far offshore in the canyons, He had found his Place.

Nowadays, The Capt.’s fun comes from taking people on fishing trips. Whether an inshore trip for a day or an offshore overnight trip, He’s always trying to pass on the excitement, awe he feels just being out there. Check out what over 50 years of experience can show you
