About the captain

My name is Captain Dave Johnson aka "Capt. D". I am a 4th generation Florida Cracker and have been successfully fishing the west coast of Florida for over 35 years. I am a U.S. Coast Guard certified Captain and specialize in near shore fishing for redfish, sea trout, tarpon, sharks, Spanish mackerel, and many other species of fish.

I also offer scallop trips in the summer. Scalloping season runs from July 1 to mid September. Scalloping is a great way to beat the dog days of summer, and it's great fun for the whole family.

I am a full service fishing guide, who provides everything you will need to have a wonderful day on the water. Book your trip now and come fish with me, Capt. D.



About my boat

My fishing boat is a Corolina Skiff and it has it all, from its custom built tower, remote controlled trolling motor, live well, jackplate (for running shallow), to a power pole (for quiet anchoring). This 24 foot extra wide boat has plenty of room to fish four comfortably and can take up to six for scalloping. No need to bring a cooler, my 80 qt. Engels has plenty of space for all of your food and drinks. Our fishing charter boat is powered by a 115 hp Yamaha 4-stroke motor that is reliable and whisper quiet. This is one of the best boats on all of the nature coast.
