He was born in 1965 in Ipswich in Massachussets. There are no fishermen in his family but his mother often took him to the ponds in Ipswich to play and he asked her could she buy him his first fishing stick. After he got his first gear, he used to fish for hours, which only nurtured the love for fishing which his parents already developed in him by spending a lot of time on boats.
When he was about nine years old his family moved to a bigger city, to Beverly, which was a harbor city. This gave him the chance to show his talent and pursue it later in life, which was exactly what Dave decided to do.
Dave could fish there any time he wanted, which helped him a lot in his practicing to become better. After years and years of hard practice he became very good at what he was doing.
He went to Gloucester High School and all through schooling he was fishing and working on a Yankee Fleet Boat. He wasn’t specially dedicated to school since he knew he wanted to become a fisherman, so he spent more time on boat than he did in school.
The company he worked part-time in offered him fishing trips and whale watching and Dave learned a lot there. He made friends with workers there and so after graduation he started working for them full time and earned his captains license.
Because he wanted to earn more money than he did by working as a captain, after three years he bought his own boat and started working for himself. This was one of his smartest moves in life since he soon became much more known that he ever wanted.
He became known for his role on National Geographic Channel’s TV series ‘Wicked Tuna’, which is one of their most popular series and the sixth season is still running. It’s a show which shows us the average life on a fisherman on the seas, his ways of fishing, his personality and his family.
On that show, he made a lot of friends, but much more enemies because it is a very competetive show where victories bring them a lot of money. Co-workers claim Dave became really grumpy throughout years, and his ego got much bigger.
He married his wife Nancy in 1990 and they have three kids together: the oldest is Angelica, the middle is Joseph and the youngest is Eva. They don’t really spend a lot of time on the boat since they are not really interested in it, but Dave claims that he will still love his boys very much even if they decide to be something else besides fishermen.
His wife was surrounded by the fish industry; her father and all of her brothers are fishing enthusiasts. That made her grow up with the same love for the sea and is known for fishing with Dave or even without him, but you can see her next to him quite often.
She says that couples that fish together spend a quality time on boat and can developed a stronger relationship, and it seems to be true in his case.
