Captain Dave Hagner has known Captain Stu for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Baltimore on Back River and began his fishing career on the Chesapeake Bay. He took his first trip with Captain Stu in Ocean City as a 12 year old and has considered himself Captain Stu’s apprentice since that first charter 26 years ago. After retiring from the United States Marine Corps in September of 2015, Captain Dave fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning Charter the LISA and is now Captain Stu’s mate and apprentice. He holds a 100 Ton USCG Master Mariner License.
