Thanks Troy, it. Was a pleasure having you aboard! Looking forward to another great trip next year.

SuperFISHous Captain Mike provided my family of 6 with an experience that we will never forget.  With 4 kids from ages 9-17 Captain Mike was able to put us on fish both trolling & bottom fishing so everyone was able to catch fish and enjoy the day on the water.  My son caught a big Kingfish that took about 15 minutes to bring in which was exciting for everyone.  I highly recommend Captain Mike on the SuperFISHous and would definitely book anther charter with him the next time I’m in Tampa Bay or anywhere else he’s docked.
