I went shark fishing with my 7 year old son and a buddy and his 14 year old son. Captain David Hutch was great with both kids. He also let my son drive the boat back. This will be on my list every spring break from now on.

A friend of mine booked this trip and asked me to go with him. I had not been out salt water fishing before so I did not know what to expect. I must say that I was blown away. We started catching fish as soon as we pulled up to the spot. It didn't slow down all day. Dave was a great guy, and had lots of tips to help us catch more fish. We will be going back again for sure. Thanks Dave.

This is the third time I have booked David to take us out fishing. We started catching fish as soon as we got to the spot and the action continued throughout the entire day. He is extremely knowledgeable, and friendly. I can't say enough good things, we will definitely be back. Also probably the best fish I have ever eaten.

Thank Pete C

This was a phenomenal trip! I loved it for many reasons. 1. Capt Dave takes small groups out. It was just my bf and I. 2. The Capt was amazing! He took us to the hot spots he knows and we caught dozens of fish! 3. After the trip he took the time to fillet all of our fish so it was all prepared to cook. 4. He was very patient when it came to me taking photos. :) Over all he was helpful, knowledgeable and fun!! I look forward to tarpon and shark fishing next time!!
Thanks again for the amazing half day trip Captain!!!
