Top notch charter Captain! It was an amazing experience and I would recommend this charter to anyone wanting to catch fish, he knows where the spots are! Perfect ride out offshore, and plenty of space on the boat for multiple people to fish off of!

Mike is an expert at finding the best fishing locations and gives great service to his charter clients. I highly recommend Wise Guy Fishing Charters for your next fishing trip.
