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 23 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.

We had a great time with a great group.  Nobody went home without a cooler full of fish.  The water started off pretty bumpy, but no worries.  Captain Mike was a complete professional and handled the waves amazingly.  The boat is incredible even while it is being remodeled.  Cannot wait to see the finish vessel, you can tell he loves what he does.  Everyone went home soar after battling some BIG sharks!  The deck hand did a great job and made sure everyone was taken care of and he was very personable.  He did great with the fish cleaning and more!  It was a blast and I would recommend Salty Dawgz’ to anyone!
