Compliments to Capt. Dave Rhoden, so good that we booked him twice. Six months ago we came to Florida for medical treatment and had a great time with Capt. Dave. Coming out here again, I asked my kids (ages 5 and 6) what they wanted to do, my little son didn't think twice, "Fishing with Capt. Dave!" Sure enough, Capt. Dave got us on even more fish than on our last trip. My kids had a great time! Thank you so much! God bless!
