Mike’s Outdoor Adventures is operated by Captain Mike Wilson. He’s licensed by the U. S. Coast Guard and fully insured. On his charters, he’ll take you fishing near shore, with land always visible, or in Pine Island Sound inside the Barrier Islands.
 
“Way2Early” is a Seahunt bay boat, powered by a dependable 90 horsepower Yahama outboard engine. For electronics, the boat is equipped with a Garmin chart plotter and a Humminbird Side Scan sonar which makes finding the Sharks so much easier.

You’ll target all of the local Shark species including Bull, Nurse, Sand, Gray, Bonnethead, Hammerhead, and Blacktip Sharks. The Bull and Hammerhead are the strongest of these and will give you the fight to tell stories about!

All fishing tackle and bait are provided including a fishing license for each client. All you will need to bring is what you plan to eat and drink. Children and grandchildren are very welcome on Capt. Mike’s boat. He’ll make sure they have fun and even give them an opportunity to drive the boat. They will experience a thrill that will stay with them for years!

Each trip with Captain Mike is not only a memorable and fun experience but is also a great opportunity to gain some knowledge about the local ecosystem. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of the amazing marine wildlife in its natural setting.

Captain Mike has more than half a century of experience in fishing. It has been my hobby since I was a young boy. Apart from fishing the local waters, I've fished the waters of Alaska, the western and the eastern United States, South America, Canada, and the Bahamas. My knowledge is broad and I readily share it with clients and friends. I enjoy teaching others various fishing techniques, knot tying, boating safety, navigation and shark fishing techniques.
