Captain Mike was an awesome captain. He knew what to do and where to go to catch fish. We caught a lot of fish. He was a great man to talk to about anything besides fishing. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fun inshore trip.

Mike was a very knowledgeable and friendly Captain. He knew the answers to our questions and had several great areas to try. I would highly recommend Mike for the cost and value.

There were 3 of us on the trip - two experienced fishers and a non-experienced female. Captain Mike was really good with beginners. We were on the intercoastal so the ride was easy, which was a big deal for the one passenger who gets sea sick easily.  No problem with sea sickness, we caught a lot of fish and had a great time. Captain Mike is great and a lot of fun. We would go out with him again.

I’ve been on several paid charters-with and without my sons (ages 8 and 12).  Captain Mike was more patient than myself and really worked hard at allowing us the opportunity to catch fish; taking the time to teach us the proper techniques-baiting, casting, placement, etc.

Capt. Mike is knowledgeable of the Intercoastal Waterway we fished; its species and nuances.  I would definitely book with him again-just weren’t biting too much-but each boy caught fish (8yr old caught a bonnet head shark-first cast).

Other highlights of the experience included up close Manatee (right on side of boat) and dolphin sightings.

Would definitely book with Capt. Mike again, great time for 3 inexperienced anglers.  We caught multiple kinds of fish on the river.

The pole lines snapped with fish caught.  Not sure it was 30# lines but should’ve been tested to catch fish accordingly to targeted fish. Disappointed that we did not catch any fish.  We did catch two crabs. The boat type was listed differently in two places online.  Captain seemed knowledgeable and was very friendly but equipment was not up to par.
