I am a Florida Native who has been fishing and golfing all over Florida since I was a child. There is nothing better than fishing and golfing in Florida, so come share the experience!
I grew up in Okeechobee and was raised fishing Largemouth Bass on the Big O and the Chain of Lakes, however my passion for the last thirty years has been backcountry fishing for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, and Trout.

Depending on the tide, we will leave the marina or boat dock around 7 AM.
You'll want to make sure you arrive with sunscreen, sun glasses, a hat and a camera (I strongly encourage catch and release).
I carry bottled water for drinking. There is a cooler and ice on the boat, so please DO NOT bring your cooler on board, since room is limited, however please bring a cooler to leave in your car if you plan to harvest your catch. Small soft pack coolers for your snacks and personal drinks are acceptable.
I furnish your rods, tackle, bait, ice and license and permits. If you prefer using artificial lures like plastic jigs, spoons, plugs, etc. You are welcome to bring your favorite lures along with/or without your own rods and reels. I only suggest that you spool your reel with a minimum of 20 lb test braided line prior to the trip as we will often be fishing near structure.
Captain Mike is currently not operating in any capacity while his license is in the renewal process, so check back for updates!
Remember to bring your camera and after a few photos consider releasing your fish.
While I strongly encourage catch and release, if you must harvest your fish be aware that there are very tight slot limits, day limits and many months of closed seasons for almost all of the fish we will be targeting.
Also, the guide does not qualify as a "person" under the "one per person" limit.
