Serving as captain on the Follow Me is Fred David, a United States Coast Guard certified captain with 50 years experience inshore and offshore fishing.  When he is not fishing, Capt. Fred is a Professor of Management at Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, but he lives at Ocean Isle and runs fishing charters year-round from Ocean Isle. Give Fred a call to go “catching” rather than “fishing.” He guarantees a fun time catching fish. He knows where the fish are both inshore and offshore. He enjoys making “lifetime fishermen” of kids from age 5 to 95. Married 43 years, Fred and Joy have three children (Forest, Byron, and Meredith) and two grandchildren (Everett and Cooper). Capt. Fred wrote the book titled “The History of Ocean Isle Beach” so if desired he can tell you stories about pirates and Indians and the Civil War and WWII as to what was going on at Ocean Isle Beach back in those days. Just ask the Captain any questions anytime about fishing or the history of this area. Fred grew up in Whiteville, NC and graduated from Wake Forest University (BS and MBA), and the University of South Carolina (PhD). Come on lets go fishing. Give me a call. Thank you.
