Captain David Lang was raised in North Florida and has fished and enjoyed bow hunting most of his life. His focus has been fishing on the St. Johns River, Lake George, and Crescent Lake, and he has fished Rodman Reservoir since it was 1st completed in 1968. Captain David is a Navy veteran, who recently retired from the Telecommunications business and returned to Florida after spending 20 years in Colorado. Captain David now lives on the St. Johns River in the Palatka area and recently attained his Captain license.

He specializes in crappie (Spec) fishing. Discover the hidden wonders of the Rodman Reservoir with Capt David Lang, and get ready for an incredible true trophy crappie fishing experience! Your guide for the day, Capt David, is a trophy hunter with local knowledge with over 20 years of experience, fishing throughout this area of North Florida. His clients describe him as a “mister reliable” who enjoys having people aboard.

Capt David is extremely knowledgeable about spawning and feeding patterns, as well as which seasons produce the best and biggest fish. After fishing for so long, understanding these waters has become second nature to him. There’s nothing that makes Capt David happier than transferring that passion to new anglers and having them hook their first big crappie.

You’ll depart from the banks of Rodman Reservoir on his 21’ Key West boat. Her shallow draft makes her perfect for planning skinny and stumpy waters, giving you an ideal bass fishing experience. She’s equipped with a fishfinder, wireless trolling motor, top-quality fishing gear, a live well, lures, spinning reels, and bait casters. Each trip accommodates up to 3 guests and can fish at the same time without tangling lines.

Your main target is trophy largemouth bass, but Capt David loves to fish for Cappie and Bluegill as well. Both are extremely popular due to their good game qualities and are fun to catch for anglers of all ages and levels of experience. Make sure you bring a camera along because a fish of a lifetime is exactly that! Perhaps one of the most beautiful and interesting bodies of water in Florida, with great scenery and outstanding wildlife!

If you enjoy live baiting, you can buy fresh wild shiners before the trip. Just be sure to pack some snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and light clothing, and get ready to fish the famed Rodman Reservoir with Capt David!

All you need to do is grab your FL fishing license, and get ready for the fishing trip of a lifetime!

one of the best crappie fishing experiences I've had in a long time. David is a good guide and teacher if you want to learn something new. I would use him again to do another charter.
