Captain Mike’s - Lucky Strike

Captain Mike’s Charters is the longest running sports fishing company in St. Lucia. This family business has been ruling the waves for over 50 years. Join them and learn from the wisdom that can only come from decades of experience.

Captain Bruce Hackshaw is the owner of the company and is one of the top anglers on the island, having won the International Billfish Trophy a record 7 times, as well as tournaments in Antigua, Grenada, Tobago and Martinique. His passion and enthusiasm for fishing shows though in every part of his life. Fish with his crew and become infected with that passion, too.

Lucky Strike is Bruce’s pride and joy. A fully refitted 46’ Bertram, she combines a touch of luxury with strength and versatility to be the ultimate fish catching machine. She’s fully equipped with top notch sportfishing gear, including outriggers, a fighting chair, and Penn and Shimano fishing gear. At the same time, she features all the personal comforts you could hope for, including two heads (bathrooms), a shower, and a multimedia system.

During your trip, you will be fishing the deep blue waters of the eastern Caribbean Sea. This is a hot spot for Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna, among many other deep sea fish. All the gear you need to catch them is supplied on board, and a first mate will be there to assist you through every stage of your trip.

On the off chance that you want to relax between bites, Lucky Strike’s beautifully finished and air conditioned interior is the perfect place to do so. We have a feeling you’ll be spending more time wrestling fish on the deck, though!

At the end of the trip, the catch will be shared between you and the crew. If you want to take some fillets with you to a local restaurant, the team at Captain Mike’s will help prepare them for you.

If you’ve always wanted to go sportfishing like a pro, this is your chance. Make your vacation extra special this year aboard the Lucky Strike with Captain Mike’s!

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.
