Capt. Mike runs trips out of Bokeelia aboard a 25' Sportsman. These waters are known for Snook and Redfish and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or bottom fishing. With extensive knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
