Capt. Michael will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing.

I’m Captain Mike and I specialize in fly and light tackle fishing for Stripers, Blues, False Albacore and Weakfish. I also do some Fluke and Sea Bass fishing and some fishing for Bluefin Tuna when they are in close enough. My goal is give my clients the best experience possible for a reasonable price. I mainly fish Raritan Bay but will also take some time each year to guide on Cape Cod and in the Florida Keys.
