He is a FISHHEAD in every sense of the word!

No matter what time of year, Captain Dave’s fishing knowledge and numerous on-lake connections always lead his charters to the right spots holding fish all season long.

Boat Excursion 3

Boat & Equipment

EXCURSION 3 is a 28-foot Penn Yan Predator with an 11-foot beam making for a stable ride and a great fishing platform. "The beam gives us the room we need when we get doubles going!" Excursion 3 is equipped with twin 350 horse power Mercruiser engines, not only for speed, but for safety! Originally owned by the Niagara County Sheriffs Department, everything was impeccably maintained. A super fast boat designed as a sport fisherman "pocket Canyon Runner" for law enforcement made it an ideal boat – fast, in even rough water.

EXCURSION 3 is fully canvassed, including a rear drop curtain, making cold early/late season fishing comfortable. The boat is equipped with 5 brand new, high-speed Cannon Downriggers, Furno 582L (sonor), Rayatheon GPS / Plotter, digital in-dash depth finder, marine radio, and a SIMRAD autopilot, as well as an AM/FM, cassette, and CD stereo system. Excursion 3 also has 2 planner board mast and reel systems, as well as numerous rod holders and is also equipped with a private marine stand-up head for your comfort.

Captain Dave has never met a tackleshop he doesn’t like – you’ll always have a plentiful selection of the hottest lures! Captain Dave uses Diawia Line counter reels matched with Heartland Rods, always spooled with fresh Trilene XT. "I don't know the last time I lost a fish due to bad line!" Copper and lead-core spooled combos are also in the arsenal for those tough bite situations.
