"I started fishing with Capt. Darrell in 2013 when we bought a place in Gulf Shores. We share the love of inshore fishing for specs, reds, flounder, etc. I have personally fished with Capt. Darrell 12-15 times - every experience one to remember. His boat is spotless and tackle always ready and clean. Even a "Zebco" for mom or the kids when needed. Capt. D has become a part of our time in Gulf Shores and has entertained our friends and our boys on several occasions. We cannot imagine a better fishing experience than with Capt. Darrell. All that said...we also clean a lot of fish!!!"Gary Blanton, Gulf Shores, Alabama
"I have been on three separate trips with Captain D and have referred him to many of my friends over the last 4 years . I have gone on trips with him with seasoned anglers as well as my 6 year old son. Captain D treated us fantastic and put us on some great fish. Reds , specks and even the occasional shark and jack crevalle . He keeps his boat and equipment clean and in perfect working order. Highly recommend!"John Carpenter, Anniston, AL
"I have had the genuine pleasure of fishing with Captain D on many occasions. In fact, we charter a trip with him every time we get to the area and have always had a great experience. Many limits of reds, an Alabama Inshore Slam and (my personal favorite) a six and a half pound 27" spec. And that's just the fishing. Captain D is, without question, the most personable and friendly guide I have ever seen. He has an incredible sense of humor and makes you feel truly welcomed on his boat (which is immaculately clean and organized). Captain D is always accommodating to your schedule and intimately familiar with a vast number of fishing locations. It is always a plus when a guide has good rapport with the other guides in an area. Captain D's personality and professionalism give him this additional distinction. I have recommended his service to others looking to fish, when they head to the beach. In every instance I have received thanks for the tip. Thanks Darrell!"Bo Underwood, Lafayette, LA
