American Fishing Outfitters’ main goal is to put a smile on your face. Captain Mike and his crew work hard to make this experience the one you’ll remember forever. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a novice, they have a seat on the boat for you. There’s no better feeling than allowing yourself that child-like excitement you get when you catch a big one.

It all starts on a custom 25 Dorado built just for captain Mike that accommodates up to 4 guests it is the largest most comfortable dry riding boat out of hudson This center console is powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and reaches a speed of 40 knots. All navigational and safety gear is up to date, and the boat also features a live bait tank, a wireless engine, and snorkeling equipment.

Whether you want to go scalloping or inshore, fishing in the shallows, captain mike knows the best spots. Inshore spots will take you after Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Cobia, Trout, Snapper, Grouper, and Tripletail.  Captain mike is one of the very few captains that is a full time guide and on the water 6 days a week . Rare birds and even playful dolphins may be seen in the Gulf of Mexico and its contributing seas.

The main approach is to provide a fun experience for people of all skill levels and ages. It’s about learning from each other, not being competitive.

Just pack some snacks and sun protection for the day. Everything else is covered by the captain.

American Fishing Outfitters welcomes you aboard!

Hi, I'm Captain Mike, the owner and operator of American Fishing Outfitters, as well as a trained diver, spear fisherman, and a full-time guide. I was born and raised in the Hudson, Florida area. My entire life has been spent fishing for Tarpon, Grouper, and other local species. I am well-versed in all of the greatest sites for each season. I even competed in the Pro Tarpon Tournament Series. I only took a break from regular fishing when I served in the US Army as an Airborne Army Ranger for five years.
