The boat also comes equipped with outriggers, a livewell, GPS, fishfinder, and everything you will need for the day’s fishing including a choice of live bait and lures, and features a flybridge and head for extra enjoyment and convenience.

Captain Mike Haney is an experienced and friendly captain with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for fishing which he and his skilled first mate bring to every trip. He operates Salty Dawgz with his wife Gretchen, who shares his love of the water and of fishing, and he is always happy to go the extra mile on his trips to make it that little bit more special.

All Salty Dawgz trips come with fishing licences for all on board and free cleaning and filleting for anything tasty you want to take home.

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.
