Background
Captain Mike has been fishing since he was 4 years old, and has also been driving boats since the age of 7 – it's safe to say he feels completely at home being out on the water!

Not only has he traveled the world, he's also fished all over it, in places such as the USA, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and Sweden.
Techniques
He loves catching Barracuda, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, King Fish, Sailfish and Marlin.
