Mike Morse Fishing – Gulf Coast

Wherever you are along Florida’s Gulf Coast, you’re not far from incredible fishing. Mike Morse Fishing LLC is giving you the opportunity to come and discover it first-hand. From Tarpon Springs down to Sarasota, you name a boat ramp and Captain Mike will be there to whisk you away to the inshore fishing trip of a lifetime.

An avid angler of over 35 years, Capt. Mike knows exactly what makes a successful fishing trip. He’s perfected his technique over the course of a lifetime on the water, and knows all the tricks of the trade to fill the boat. He promises to share his secrets with you, to get you reeling in plenty of prized fish.

Step aboard the 22’ Century bay boat and see for yourself! Built specifically to fish the shallow waters of the bays, she’ll cut across the water tops at speed before the shallow hull helps you stay afloat in even the skinniest of waters. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard, 4 people can fish and 2 can make themselves comfortable and spectate.

Using light tackle and a range of live and artificial bait, you’ll go after some of the country’s most-prized inshore fish. Test your skills against tough-fighting Jack Crevalle, Snook, and even monster Tarpon. These beauties will leap out of the water in an attempt to get off the end of your line, so get ready for an attack on the senses.

You’ll also get to go after plenty of delicious creatures to take home for dinner. Alongside the top game species, you can get your fill of Redfish, Snappers, and Trout. These beauties will also put up a fight to come aboard, but the rewards of landing one will live long after the trip is done.

Capt. Mike will clean and prepare your catch at the end of your trip, so you’re good to cook it up right away. With trips lasting from 4 hours through to a full day on the water, there’s something for everyone with Mike Morse Fishing LLC. Come aboard and experience the thrill of Gulf Coast fishing!
