About the Captain

Thomas Mikoleski
Montauk, New York, United States
Member since March 2016
A person is very lucky if they love their job. I'm pleased to say, I'm now a very lucky person because I run the Montauk charter boat Grand Slam. This was not always the case because for 20-years previous I was a member of two New York City Law Enforcement Departments. This initial career choice may have delayed "my luck" for a period of time, but being "on the job" gave me the opportunity to retire at a relatively young age. So, in 2006 I switched professions to pursue my long simmering obsession with the striped bass. An obsession with a fish may seem strange to normal people. However, in my world, it was destiny a long time coming.

Capt Tom knows his way around Montauk Long Island like you know the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. His concerns for client safety are apparent as soon as you step aboard his boat, The Grand Slam. What’s more, Capt. Tom knows how to put you on fish. He is equally concerned that his customers have a good time and are catching fish. Capt. Tom is an experienced expert and wrote a book titled, Bass Buff- A Striper Fishing Obsession Guide. He doesn’t hold back any tactics or techniques in his how-to book or when you are aboard Grand Slam Charters.  We had two trips on Grand Slam Charters and he always does the right thing. Fishing around the historic Montauk lighthouse and the views are an added bonus. Professional, experienced,  courteous, knowledgeable—two thumbs up and 5 stars.

Had a great day fishing on The Grand Slam with Captain Tom Mikoleski. We started out the day fishing for Striped Bass at Captain Tom’s favorite spots and had a good showing of bass to 30 lbs. When the tide slacked off we traveled for about 15 minutes and switched to Seabass and Porgies. The action was constant as we picked away at many large Seabass and Porgies and even a few surprise Fluke mixed in. When we had our fill of these bottom fish Capt. Tom asked if we wanted to try for some more Fluke in another spot, or go back to Striped Bass, we chose Striped Bass to finish off our trip. We had a great day fishing with Capt. Tom and crew on The Grand Slam and would recommend this boat to the seasoned angler or the beginner.

Beautiful day in the water. It wasn't crazy fishing today, but it was steady action with stripers up to 38-pounds. Read Full Report →
