Piss on the haters Dave they need to do their homework I was lucky enough to be aboard your pops boat quite a few times in the 90s he was a class act and always put us on the fish, What the two of you have done and continue to do for our fishery and the industry is highly commendable GOOD LUCK with the website Sir!

I KNOW WHEN I TALK TO THEM ON THE PHONE...ITS NOT THAT HARD....IN 42 YEARS YOU LEARN HOW TO READ PEOPLE. IN 2016 I WAS ON 142 DIFFERENT BOATS.I HAVE HAD MAYBE LESS THEN 5 BAD EXPERIENCES IN THE 18 YEARS I HAVE BEEN GUIDEING...2008 WAS BEST YEAR EVER 154 DIFFERENT BOATS .I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS...I HAVE NOT HAD ONE BAD THING EVER WRITEN BY ANY OF THE HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE I HAVE HELPED..ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER MET ME HAVE NEGATIVE THINGS TO SAY.
Haha! I was probably one of those 5 bad experiences!

Several years ago I started into the local boating and fishing scene. I didn't know what I didn't know. I bought a boat and needed to gain knowledge. I hired Dave to come out and help me learn for a weekend. Day one I nearly sunk the boat and day two I ran out of gas. After getting recovered, Dave couldn't wait to get back to the dock and run as fast as possible to get away from me and I couldn't blame him! I have to say that he was patient, taught me a lot that i didn't know and while he is a character, it helped me a lot at a time where I needed to start somewhere. You guys that are experienced, grew up fishing here or don't need a guide are not his target market. Yes his personality may not agree with yours but I am always surprised by the "bandwagon follow me" bashing crowd by people that have may never even had an experience with him on here. The guy makes a living doing what he loves and somewhere along the line he may possibly help people like me that at the time needed it. I have used the learning experience over the years to not only graduate to bigger and better boats but have become a safer boater and better fisherman. I have no dog in this fight but I am certainly not in the Dave bashing camp and have very little respect for those that love to hide behind their keyboards and poke jabs at people just because others do it. Get over it and go fishing.

I have met Dave on several occasions. In person he is very down to earth and funny guy. A friend has hired him on a few occasions and thinks the world of Dave. Plus they caught haveseveral 100 pound plus bluefin fishing with him.
I have also looked at his website lots of good info especially if you are going to SCI.

I think Michael Bingham used run yachts and his brother used to run the International Star. Not sure how funny he is.
If so then he may feel bad his brothers are friends of mine..Lets hope he is not really a bingham...If so his brothers my help him...

The Bingham brothers and theres a bunch of them have been running boats all over the world out of san diego since since the late sixties and are still very active in the fishing community , people who weve meet over the years know theres nothing funny about us , we take very seriously our trade passed down from our father jim bingham senior , our family has taught and passed on our fishing experience and knowledge to those who seek it , were modest people who were fortunate to be taught how too enjoy and respect the oceans of the world , so if your asking me to tell a few jokes , and the askiing bd for me too tell a few jokes it wont happen , but i. am willing to meet you face to face to show you how funny im not , be careful which family you go after , were old school , have a great day on the water

Dave. Can you tell me about your website please? Can you sign up for 1 month to check it out? Do you need a computer or can you use your iPhone or iPad? What are you targeting for inshore or bay fishing or offshore fishing? Any information on getting bait (Macs). Sorry for all the questions.

Yes. You can sign up for one month. The reason people are signing up for the monthly subscription is because at least one new video is added every week.

The website is mobile friendly. You can sign up on Andriod, iPhone or pretty much any mobile device.

Targeting whatever swims.

Hope that helps.

Wow great videos Dave! I just joined your website and all I can say is I wish I had joined sooner! Love the information about the kite setup! Can’t wait for your next videos! Maybe you could talk about how I can catch the winning yellowtail in the yellowtail tournament soon? Thanks again for sharing your knowledge! See you on the water! Doug

Dave, your web site is full of great information for people that are new to our beloved fishery. It gets them headed in the right direction.

You are able to make a living while doing something you love. Keep up the great work and see you on the water!

Just joined and spent an hour or two and watched every single video apart from the ones on spots. Lots of great information, especially for those who are kinda new to running their own boat. I also found all those kite videos really useful since I want to give that a try this year. One thing I’d like to see more of is stuff more focused on San Diego and maybe some knowledge more applicable to sportboats as well.
