Background
Captain Michael has been on the water ever since he was a little boy. Fishing with his family has always been something to look forward to, and he made sure he took every chance he had to get on a boat. Over the years, he realized his true calling was to be a captain, so he started his own business in order to share that love and passion with like minded anglers. Michael loves topwater fishing for Trout.
