On most days, you can find Dave Rodriguez helping out customers at North Port’s Fine Bait and Tackle. Whether it’s repairing rods or picking out select shrimp or other live bait from the tanks in back, Dave keeps busy.
Originally from Virginia, Dave grew up near Chesapeake Bay and has been fishing since he can remember. After moving to the area a few years ago, Dave met Fine Bait and Tackle owner Ray Moss and wife Beth. Ray, who knows a thing or two about fishing Charlotte Harbor, taught the stranger from Chesapeake Bay the ropes. Soon, Dave was catching snook in the Harbor as easily as he caught stripers back in Virginia.
