David Fancier silently arrives at the Nueces Bay Boat Ramp before sunrise everyday.

He's a commercial fisherman.

In fact, Fancier's commercial drum business brings in about 50-thousand pounds of fish a year.

From Nueces Bay David will bring his catches to this fish market on Morgan. The Morgan Street Fish Market. He's  been bringing his fresh fish on a daily basis here for almost a quarter of a century.

"He's one of the best he has been with me 23 years now," said Charlie Allegria, the owner of Morgan Street Fish Market.

Both he and David's fathers were in the fishing business.

"I grew up in the fish business so did David. David's dad was a commercial fisherman also a commercial fish market owner back in the 60s and 70s," said Allegria.

But this is where the similarities end. Running a commercial fishing business is a little more difficult for David.

"What makes David real special is the fact that he is deaf," said Allegria.
