Background
Captain Mike is a lifetime angler, growing up as first mate on his fathers charter fishing boat he has been learning techniques for over 40 years. He and his crew have over 30 years of experience fishing in Cape Cod Bay. Captain Mike holds a 100 ton master license and has years of operating large boats but fishing has always been his passion. Captain Mike would love the opportunity to fish with experienced and novice anglers and show them some tried and true techniques to land more fish.
Techniques
At Coastal Excursions we have the gear and experience to use several different techniques to catch fish. We troll, run tube and worm, wire line jigging, live bait drifting, and top water fishing to name a few. In Cape Cod Bay the fishing changes week to week, we will change our approach based on where and when the fish are biting.

Mike was an excellent host, very patient and friendly. His knowledge of the area very important in order to catch that day. The waters that day were excellent and overall a great trip!!

These guys are amazing! I took my 2 sons on this charter in hopes of catching a handful of nice striped bass. We caught that and then some! We caught 14 nice fish. 12 of them were 26” or bigger. 4 of them were over 31”. My 12 year old and 14 year old were entertained and excited the whole trip. From catching the mackerel to use as bait right through their final casts they had a ball! I cannot recommend these guys any higher to you! They know their fishing and how to please!!!! Do yourself a favor and book with them…you won’t be sorry! I guarantee it!

Our whole family had a wonderful time and it is easy to say this was the most satisfying fishing trip we have ever taken!
Captain Mike’s knowledge of the region’s history and ecosystem enriched our experience.

Thank you very much!

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip! We caught nearly two dozen stripers, many of them were keeper size!  I have been on many charters and I have to rank this one as one of the best.  We were fishing for stripers within a half hour And that includes catching the mackerel were used for bait. Captain Mike and his mate, Mac, were friendly and knowledgeable! The afternoon trip is the way to go, with a great sunset as we returned to the dock.  Highly recommended!  Thanks Catain Mike!  We will see you next year!  Mark D. From Colorado

Captain Mike definately lives by his company motto of “Your day, Your way”. He was extremely accommodating with all of our group’s needs and requests. We would highly recommend him to everyone!! Our next fishing trip will be booked with Coastal Excursions.

Booked this charter because they were the only charter we contacted that was willing to fish for what we wanted, the Captain kept us up to date on the tides so we could optimise our experience. Mike and his deck mate Karen were friendly and knowledgeable,  keeping us on the fish, having no worries about burning gas to do so. I would highly recommend them and plan to book them in the future.Thanks and tight lines
