Background
Hi there, I am Captain Mike and my passion for fishing began while I was stationed in Alaska. It didn’t take long to realize others shared the same love for fishing as I do, so paired with hard work, dedication, and knowledge, I was able to share my experience with others. I began guiding countless fishing and hunting excursions within the Gulf of Alaska for the next several years with various clients of all types with one goal in mind, 100% pure fulfillment and enjoyment from each trip. I now reside in the panhandle of Florida, bringing the same level of customer service with me from Alaska. As of now, I have served 23 years in the United States Air Force, and fortunate enough to share the same passion of fishing and adventure with my wife, Gretchen. Together we own and operate the Salty Dawgz’ Deep Sea Fishing and Charter’s located in Fort Walton Beach, FL.

Great Wahoo hit within the first hour of the half day trip. Screamed line, but only 15 minutes to get back and into the boat. Besides a great Wahoo, this crew brought in some great snapper, red and vermilion. Read Full Report →

Best fishing charter Captain, Crew and Boat in the local area by far. They will put you on the fish with a quickness, The captains experience navigating ruff water is top notch and there knowledge on how to hook into the big ones is on point! We had a blast with a mix of seasoned fisherman and first timers. I would highly recommend them for a trip, no foo foo wine and dine charter this is a fishing machine that gets the job done every time!

We had a great time with a great group.  Nobody went home without a cooler full of fish.  The water started off pretty bumpy, but no worries.  Captain Mike was a complete professional and handled the waves amazingly.  The boat is incredible even while it is being remodeled.  Cannot wait to see the finish vessel, you can tell he loves what he does.  Everyone went home soar after battling some BIG sharks!  The deck hand did a great job and made sure everyone was taken care of and he was very personable.  He did great with the fish cleaning and more!  It was a blast and I would recommend Salty Dawgz’ to anyone!

I have fished many Destin trips over the years. Witnessing fist hand the industry becoming more and more corporate and commercialized to the point where the captions climb to their perch and all interaction from then on was thru the PA. It was very refreshing to find a caption and boat that reminded me of the good old days of fishing. Capt. Mike and Jessie were just a pleasure and catered the trip to us. Very accommodating and worked hard to see that my family had a great day on the water. His Boat’s old school and just how I like it. No flash here, just big turbo charged diesels plowing thru the sea was music to my ears. The boat was very organized clean and comfortable with lots of room. The kids were even allowed to go up with the caption making this boat extremely family oriented. Jessie was great helping the kids with tackle, bating hooks, and taking fish off as they reeled in one after another.  These guys made sure we had an awesome day. Thanks Mike and Jessie!
