I'm Captain Dave Baldwin, fishing is my passion and "being of service" is my specialty. Providing you, your family and your friends with a safe and enjoyable Fort Lauderdale fishing adventure is what I do. To me, a successful day is: providing everyone with special memories of a fun time to take home, as well as, bringing a great days' catch back to the dock.
I understand that everyone has different expectations of what a day of fishing should be. No need to worry if you're new to the sport of fishing because I love to teach and my crew or myself will gladly give you tips until you get the hang of it. I can't wait to see the smile on your face when you catch your first fish, especially if you are a kid!
If you're an "old pro" I will let you get as involved as much you want. I'm not the type of guide that won't let you touch the gear until a fish has been hooked as is the practice on many boats I've been on. You're welcome to roll up your sleeves and fish your way, the way that's comfortable to you. I want you to have a good time and engage in the fishing experience to what ever extent you desire. It would be my pleasure to be your charter Captain for an exciting day of fun and fishing.

When fishing in South Florida you never know what you're gonna catch. You might be fishing for Sailfish and catch a Shark or Blue Marlin. Fishing for Sharks you might catch Sailfish, Amber Jack or even a Swordfish... it has happened, let us put you there!
If you have your own boat and are new to the area, or need some local fishing knowledge, give us a call. We can show you what you need to know to catch fish!
"Our most important goal is to have fun, relax and enjoy the water. Remember a day of fishing is always better than a day at work!"
