Captain Dave Kohlus has been fishing for striped bass, marlin, tuna, swordfish, bluefish, Atlantic cod, and sharks off the waters of Montauk for 40 years -- 33 of those years as captain of the Hooker, and the last three years as captain of the ADAH-K.

The ADAH-K is a beautiful 48-ft. Rybovich that Dave and his wife, Ada, refurbished four years ago. Equipped with twin 450 horsepower Cummins Diesel engines, the boat was built for fishing, but it is luxurious enough to masquerade as a yacht. It was built in Palm Beach by the renowned Rybovich boat builders, considered to be the best builders of wood/glass hull yachts and sport fishing vessels.

A History of Landing the Big Ones

On his first day of fishing off Montauk on the ADAH-K, Dave helped to land a 56-pound striped bass. That was three years ago, and there have been many charters and happy customers since that day on the ADAH-K. During the 2011 season, Dave's customers were happy with their catch of stripers -- especially since 45 of them were over 40 pounds, and two of them were over 50 pounds! Dave has been on the cover of Long Island Fisherman six times because of the record fish caught on the Hooker and ADAH-K. Please check out the "Fish Stories" and "Photos" links above.
