Captain Mike started fishing the Lake Erie Islands with his Dad at the age of five and has fished all his life. He says this is pretty much all he has done and all he has wanted to do. Mike decided early on to get his captain's license, and has spent the last 22 years fishing and guiding professionally. He is a relaxed person who likes to make charters fun. Mike's guests all say that his charters are very laid back and no pressure, which is what makes Mike a great choice. He loves taking people fishing for Walleye and Perch.
