Member since January 2017
Spending time on and around the water has always been an important part of Captain Mike Elling's life. Growing up in Northport, a small fishing village on Long Island, he spent his childhood fishing, clamming and working on boats. This led to a lifelong passion for the outdoors. As he grew up, he worked on many commercial fishing boats, starting out on the old oyster dredge boats that fished out for Northport. After moving to Alaska to fish for Cod and Pollock, he joined the Navy, where he was stationed in Virginia Beach. This gave him the chance to fish the bountiful waters of the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia, and South Carolina. When he sustained a serious injury to his leg in the first Gulf War, Captain Mike was honorably discharged from the Navy. After that point, he dedicated his life to charter fishing. Mike has lived and worked in Montauk since 2000, working on commercial and charter fishing boats as well as serving local marinas. Now, he wants to share all this experience with you.
