Michael Hartnett

Member since August 2019 Cape Canaveral, United States
Background
I have lived in Florida all my life and have been chasing all Atlantic Ocean fish since I was a small child with my family and friends. I love to fish in many different ways but sight fishing for Mahi Mahi, Cobia, and Tripletail are my favorite. I love spending time on the water, chasing and catching fish, teaching others to enjoy fishing and improve their skills.
Techniques
I love to fish in many different ways: sight fishing for Mahi Mahi, cobia and tripletail are my favorite, then live bait trolling for kingfish, Spanish mackerel, cobia, jacks, and sharks. Other effective ways to catch fish out of the beautiful Florida Keys that I enjoy are dead bait trolling, anchoring and chumming and power drifting for bottom fish.
