August Social - David Hartwell - Land Based Fishing

David has been fishing Florida for more than half of his life and most of that as an avid, land based angler. He has tatgeted everything from bonefish, tarpon and permit in the keys to bull reds and trophy snook on both the east and west coasts. His biggest passion however is seeking out the rare bites. Chasing Cubera snapper, permit or giant snook are at the top of his list this time of year. His fishing journeys take him to beyond Florida’s borders in search of trophy sized blue and flathead catfish as well as carp in Georgia and South Carolina.

“At certain times of year I'm just as likely to be targeting bluegills or crappie as I am sheepshead or flounder. In short, if it swims I want to catch it. Above all, I feel that land based fishing is a challenge and catching a target species on a regular basis is an enormous reward for both time and dedication. “
