My son and I had Ling Cod fishing with Captain Dale on Ruby D last Sunday! It was unforgettable experience with my son and Captain Dale. We caught two big Ling Cod(36" and 42") within 1.5 hours, but had to release 42" one back to the water as it is too big to keep it. We also had 3-4 flounders(sand dab). Thanks a lot for Dale's kind and professional guide and assistance!! I am planning to make another fishing trip with my parents and wife when salmon season is coming soon. Of course it will be with Captain Dale on Rudy D! Again, Thank you Dale!! John B. Bellevue WA
Me and my boyfriend found Captain Dale through Carl of Fish Finders charters, and couldn't have had a better experience! It was our first time charter fishing and Dale made us feel extremely comfortable and walked us through everything we needed to know. Even though the Lingcod fishing is slow right now, Dale took us to the best spots and we managed to land a keeper Lingcod! Also caught flounder and shiner perch that we used as bait. Catching shiner perch is a blast and Dale let us do that for as long as we wanted to. He also drove us around to different booies to look for sea lions and seals, which was very cool.
Fishing aside, Dale was just a great guy. He is very personable and shared many interesting stories about his life with us. Very passionate about fishing and genuinely wanted us to catch fish and have a great time. He went above and beyond when he offered to filet and freeze our fish at his home and transport it to us before we left Seattle on Friday. We are from across the country and wouldn't have been able to enjoy this catch without Dale's kindness and generosity.
If we ever come back to Seattle, we will definitely be calling Dale again to go on another trip. This is a MUST for anyone looking for a great experience on the water in Seattle.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time fishing with Captain Dale on the Ruby D! Captain Dale was very kind and knowledgeable. He knew the best locations to catch the different types of fish we were looking for. We started off the day by bait fishing. Everyone in our group caught multiple flounders and had a great time doing so. We then moved on to fishing for Lingcod which was our primary target. My boyfriend caught a Lingcod that was 35" and nearly 20 pounds! It was awesome! I would highly recommend Captain Dale and the Ruby D to anyone looking for a fishing charter. We will definitely be back again for another trip!
Dale was such an amazing captain! My mother, boyfriend and myself went out with Dale on 3/17/16 and had a blast! Not only did we catch some delicious fish, but we were able to witness whales due to Dales wonderful eye AND a seal that stole a fish right off our line! I would recommend going out with Dale and I know we will definitely be back out to take this trip again with him! Thank you Dale for an amazing time!
I've been a charter boat captain for 15 years in Alaska & know the business very well. I've been fishing with Captain Dale for over 20 years in Seattle and in Alaska as well. Dale is a great guy to go fishing with. We always have a great time. He works hard. He's real sharp & he is very entertaining. He has a real good feel for finding where the fish are & staying on top of them. He has a good network with other captains in the area so when fishing is slow he can relocate. You can't go wrong fishing with Captain Dale. Good luck - Captain Jason Heck
Went out for Silvers with Captain Dale who put us on fish all day long. Great captain and awesome boat. I will be back out on the water with him again very soon
