We did two trips with Mike. Tides where weak and there was quite a bit of wind - not optimum for fishing. However Mike put us on to some nice snooks and other bycatch - the second trip was for tarpon and we ended up hooking two (and loosing them quickly) - we also caught a small lemon shark. Mike was working all his spots - moving quickly when spots didn’t produce. He was tirelessly trying to ensure that we had a good time and caught fish. Mike is a very pleasant guide, entertaining and patient and always in a good mood. I will make sure I will give Mike a call when I’m in the area for a good day fishing.

Great day on the water. Broke the ice with a nice size snook. Captain Mike made the decision to take his boat North which was a little ride but paid off with a couple of black drum approximately 38 inchs. Finished the trip off with two trout with a remarkable size of 22 & 23 inches.

This was an amazing trip for us.  My wife and I teamed up and caught this 120 pound tarpon, along with several keeper trout, a big jack, and the menacing catfish; plus my wife hooked a shark that didn’t make it to the boat. Captain Mike was a blast and was on the fish!!! If you are not excited about fishing you will be after spending time with him.  We will be back to see Captain Mike next year!

Had a great time, Mike was very knowledgeable about the locations of fish.  We caught a variety of fish.  My favorite was the Jack Crevalle, toughest fight I ever had, he called it when he pulled up there. Very easy to converse with and helpful during our trip. 
Thanks again captain Mike.

Wasn’t sure to expect for afternoon fishing and if we’d catch much. Although we weren’t able to get on many big fish, Captain Mike got us on a good number of fish in a number of locations. Learned a lot about FL fishing as Mike answered all my questions no matter how goofy they probably were to him. Had a blast and will book again when we return.

Great experienced guide. The fishing was tough the day we were out, and none of the other boats seemed to be doing any better. We did catch enough for a great dinner. Captain Mike was a pleasure to spend time with and he added some time to try extra spots. I especially liked being out on a small boat.
