Capt. Mike’s – Hack Attack

If you want to experience the fantastic year-round fishery that St. Lucia has to offer, then come aboard Capt. Mike’s Hack Attack and get ready to reel ‘em in alongside a captain who is seriously fierce in his fishing! Hack Attack is all about battling world-famous big game species, so get ready to come face-to-gills with Billfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and a variety of Tuna.

The charter is captained by Bruce Hackshaw, who has an impressive 50+ years of angling experience, and is on the water every chance he gets – whether he’s taking guests out to productive fishing grounds, competing in fishing tournaments, or just having fun with friends and family. Fishing really is a huge part of his life, and he hates coming home without a catch!

You’ll be traveling out to the hotspots on a 38’ Betram offshore sport fishing vessel. She can accommodate up to 8 anglers – you’ll all be able to soak in the St. Lucia coastline as you hang out on the flybridge with your captain on your way to the fishing grounds. Once you’re on fish, you can head down to the spacious deck and try your hand at reeling in your dream catch.

Onboard your vessel, you’ll find top-of-the-line safety and navigational gear to ensure you have a smooth and comfortable journey. There are also outriggers for maximum trolling potential, as well as a fighting chair to help you battle some seriously huge big game fish.

Speaking of big game fish, you’ll have the opportunity to reel in some world-famous offshore superstars – Mahi Mahi, the majestic Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and plenty of other hard-fighters. Capt. Bruce will have you decked out with top-notch rods, reels, and tackle, and will teach you the best techniques to reel in a truly impressive catch.

Your trip includes a valid fishing license, and when you’re back on land, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you. Join Capt. Mike’s Hack Attack and get ready for a fierce, fast-paced angling adventure!

Fishing is in my blood. I have been on boats and on the water since the day I was born. I have never wanted to be anything other than a fishing captain. I worked with my father, Captain Mike, until he passed away when I was 25. I took over the family business and have developed our fleet to 5 Bertram sportfishers, ranging from 31' to 46'. I am on the water every chance I get, with charters, fishing tournaments, or just fooling around with friends and family. I hold the island Blue Marlin record of 940 lb and the St. Lucia Billfish tournament record of 707 lb. When you fish with me or my crew you know you are fishing with a crew who share a passion for the ocean and and a real love of fishing and fun! – Bruce Hackshaw, owner, Captain Mike's St Lucia.
