About the Captain

Hi there, I am Captain Mike and my passion for fishing began while I was stationed in Alaska. It didn’t take long to realize others shared the same love for fishing as I do, so paired with hard work, dedication, and knowledge, I was able to share my experience with others. I began guiding countless fishing and hunting excursions within the Gulf of Alaska for the next several years with various clients of all types with one goal in mind, 100% pure fulfillment and enjoyment from each trip. I now reside in the panhandle of Florida, bringing the same level of customer service with me from Alaska. As of now, I have served 26 years in the United States Air Force, and fortunate enough to share the same passion of fishing and adventure with my wife, Gretchen. Together we own and operate the Salty Dawgz’ Deep Sea Fishing and Charter’s located in Fort Walton Beach, FL.

During our stay at Navarre Beach, my husband treated some of our family to a half day of fishing.  What a treat that was for them.  They all had such positive comments about Captain Mike and First Mate Jeremy.  The boat was great and easily accommodated the 6 passengers.  They all caught several fish, and you could tell by the smiles on their faces that they had a wonderful time. 

This was our first trip to Navarre Beach, and it can be a hard decision to select a charter if you aren’t from the local area.  Make it easy on yourself and select Salty Dawgz.  You will not be disappointed.  We will always trust Salty Dawgz for our future fishing adventures. 

Thanks Captain Mike and First Mate Jeremy!!
