"Fishing has been my passion since I was a child!" Mike Salamon has been fishing since he was 12 years old, and decided to put his lifetime of angling know-how to use by becoming a guide over a decade ago. He honed his skills by taking part in plenty of Bass tournaments, so it's safe to say he has a trick or two up his sleeve when it comes to hooking 'em. He's a local to this area, which means he knows the ways of these waters, and will happily guide you to the hotspots! Fishing has always been his passion, and he can't wait to pass his love for the sport onto you – he especially loves introducing little ones to casting a line!
