Dave Anderson was recommended to us through another fisherman. We got more than our money's worth!!! He was on time and ready to go. He caught lots and lots of fish. Several amberjack and some other species in that family. We also caught snook and a few catfish. The catching was consistent all day. Our biggest was a 13 lb... More

He was great and extremely patient with all of us. Dave explained the correct technique and the fun started. We caught plenty of mangrove snapper of all sizes. At the end of the... More

My wife and I have gone out with Captain Dave for several years now and I can assure you, it can't get any better than a day (or half day) with Captain Dave. He is the BEST, period.

Had an opportunity to fish back to back days with Capt Dave. Very professional; worked the entire trip to make the experience second to none. Consistently put us on fish; snook, reds, snappers, et al. Caught a bunch of fish; several of which made it to the evening grill for dinner. Dave provides everything you'll need for a great day...

Had a great day on the water, new years day. Caught about 30 fish, about 8 keepers of Red Snapper. Had a great time. Definitely calling Capt Dave again if we return to Marco.

One of the best days fishing I've ever had. Two of us caught fish all morning: snapper, snook, and lost two tarpon that were too much for the tackle. Capt Dave.Anderson treated us like kings all day never leaving us wanting for a thing. He is the most professional and attentive guide I have ever hired. Can't wait for a... More

While on holiday in Florida I had the pleasure of a days fishing in the everglades with Dave Andersen, not only did we catch some decent fish at least eight varieties but we saw some spectacular wild life in it's own environment. Dave is a good skipper with vast knowledge of the area and when the fishing slowed in the... More

I have had the pleasure of going out with Capt Dave Anderson on several different occasions and all I can say is he has given me and my young son the fishing experience of a lifetime. I would highly recommend hiring Capt Dave Anderson if you like catching fish and lots of them. Not only were the fish big, but... More
