Captain
Mike Wilson

Member since November 2016 Cape Coral, United States
Background
Captain Mike Wilson has more than half a century of experience in fishing. It has been his hobby since he was a young boy. Apart from sailing the local waters, Mike has fished the waters of Alaska, the western and the eastern United States, South America, Canada, and the Bahamas. His knowledge is broad and he readily shares it with his guests and friends. He enjoys teaching others various fishing techniques, knot tying, live bait fishing, boating safety and navigation.
Techniques
I utilize cut bait choosing mullet, ladyfish or Spanish mackerel when fishing for sharks in Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass, and nearshore in the Gulf. While fishing for other species, I've caught many sharks and I now concentrate on shark fishing exclusively.
