Captain Mike's first fishing memories go back to his childhood and Barnegat Bay, where he fished local rivers, lakes, and ponds. By the time he was 18, he bought his first fishing boat and started chasing Fluke, Striped Bass, and Weakfish, in both Barnegat and Raritan bays. By the time he reached his mid-20s and a few boats later, Captain Mike started fishing out of the Manasquan Inlet and targeting trophy Striped Bass, Fluke, and pelagic fish for the next 12 years before moving his boat to Raritan Bay. The captain's passion for Striped bass led him to Raritan Bay and the NY area. He is currently a holder of a 100-ton Master Captain's license. When it comes to fishing charter captains in New Jersey, you can rest rely on Capt. Mike to provide you with a memorable time on the water! He specializes in live bait fishing along with jigging and top water for Striped Bass and Tuna.
