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.

Capt Mike was very knowledgeable and the equipment was great. However it was a standard, make sure each person catches a fish and that’s about it.  There were three of us fishing and most of the time he only put one rod out.  He has all the equipment to have a rod for each person.  It wasn’t about catching multiple fish. It was about catching a few and not having us reeling a lot of fish.  I’ve been with a lot of guides and we did catch fish but just the minimum.

Gary, thank you.  Captain Mike is very knowledgeable and that is what has made him such a successful charter Captain. 

We hope you have a pleasant rest of your time on the Emerald Coast.
