Head out with Captain Mike for a glorious day of fishing in the crystal-clear waters of Crystal Beach, Florida! The bite here is legendary, whether you're looking to find a personal best Snook, fill your cooler with delicious table fish like Gag Grouper and Mangrove Snapper, or stock up on Scallops. Captain Mike has been fishing, scalloping, and diving in the Gulf for more than thirty years, and is a true expert when it comes to fishing the Florida inshore. On the day of the trip, you'll get off the dock aboard Captain Mike's 24' Carolina Skiff DLX, an absolutely perfect boat for chasing fish in the inshore shallows and the grass flats. With a 150 HP Mercury outboard, you'll be on the prime fishing spots in no time! Keep your eyes open for tailing Redfish and cruising Cobia—both are common in this area. This boat also features a wireless trolling motor, so you can sneak up on fish and sightcast right to them! There's nothing like the feeling of watching a big fish whack your lure in just a few feet of water. Captain Mike will make sure you have everything you need for a great day, including quality rods and reels, bait, and tackle. Just make sure to bring along proper clothing, sunscreen, and a hat, and you'll be good to go! Read More

Scalloping is one of the best family activities during summers in Florida. Splashing through the water and diving for the hidden snacks is like a marine Easter Egg Hunt, which is fun for everyone. Captain Mike will take you on a 4 hour adventure around the mouth of the Crystal River, where Scallops hide among the sea grass in the shallow flats. You can take home bagfuls of the savory shellfish for you and your family to enjoy! Captain Mike’s 24’ Carolina Skiff is the perfect vessel for Scalloping. It can fit up to 6 guests, and the 150hp Mercury engine makes for a smooth ride amongst the grassy flats. At any point, you can grab the snorkeling equipment (provided by the captain) and hop into the warm water to search the grass for Scallops! Captain Mike will also provide you with bags so you can stock up with more scallops than you can carry! All you need to bring are drinks, snacks, and appropriate clothing. You should also bring a towel to dry off after scavenging the sea floor. This trip is perfect for a family vacation, and should be a blast! Read More

great captain my wife and I had a blast scalloping with him today we will be back.



He was entertaining and we had a great trip. Though it was windy and the fish weren’t biting much, it was an enjoyable day on the water with Captain Mike.

We had a fantastic day on the water thanks to Captain Mike. We only caught a couple of keepers, so Mike generously prepared smoked fish dip for us! A true gentleman and character. Thank you very much, sir!

We were lucky with the weather and only sheltered once by an island but the storm passed us by. Captain Mike took us to a few spots and told us his scalloping tricks. We have a fun trip and Captain Mike was very knowledgeable about the area for both scalloping and a great place to have lunch at afterwards. I liked the fact that we went out of Ozello and in no time at all we were in the water looking for the elusive scallops. I also liked the fact that he took us to shallow places so I could walk in the water to catch the scallops. We would recommend Captain Mike.
