Charter Operator
Captain Mike's

Member since August 2014 Castries, Saint Lucia
Background
Fishing is in my blood. I have been on boats and on the water since the day I was born. I have never wanted to be anything other than a fishing captain. I worked with my father, Captain Mike, until he passed away when I was 25. I took over the family business and have developed our fleet to 5 Bertram sportfishers, ranging from 31' to 46'. I am on the water every chance I get, with charters, fishing tournaments, or just fooling around with friends and family. I hold the island Blue Marlin record of 940 lb and the St. Lucia Billfish tournament record of 707 lb. When you fish with me or my crew you know you are fishing with a crew who share a passion for the ocean and and a real love of fishing and fun! – Bruce Hackshaw, owner, Captain Mike's St Lucia.
