Captain Dave has been fishing the East End since he was 8 years old, fishing with some of Montauk's legendary fishermen. He learned everything he knows by working as co-captain and mate on two charter boats - alongside Montauk's renowned charter boat captain, Mark Marose.
Between the skills and knowledge Dave acquired from Capt. Mark and his own natural love of fishing, this determined young fisherman has made a name for himself as one of the most successful, competitive fishermen on the East End. As the captain, Dave and his crew caught the overall heaviest shark and took home the grand prize at the Montauk Marine Basin Annual Shark Tag Tournament in 2008, and the Star Island Yacht Club Annual Shark Tournament in 2008 and 2014. The 377 lb. thresher shark they caught in June of 2014 at the SIYC earned Captain Dave an appearance on the NBC Sports television show "Sharkhunters".
