Although he catches fish of all kinds, Red Snapper might as well be Captain Mike's speciality. He loves running trips for this highly photogenic and famously tasty species, and will make sure to get you your limit! You'll be fishing for Snapper in deep offshore water, jigging and bottomfishing over reefs and rocks where the Snapper like to congregate. Even if you've never hauled up a lunker before, this trip will be a blast and a perfect way to fill your cooler with some top-shelf table fare. In addition to Snapper, you'll also be able to hook other reef species, such as Amberjack, Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, Grouper, and more! These fish are also excellent eating, and you're welcome to keep some for dinner. You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Mike's 26' ProKat catamaran. This puppy is built for speed and stability and is equipped with twin 300-HP Suzuki outboards, giving you a super fast ride. She's also loaded up with other gear and amenities to keep you comfortable, including a restroom! Captain Mike will provide you with all the equipment, tackle, and bait you need, plus ice for your food, drinks & fish. He'll also clean and bag your fish for you at the end of the day! All you need to bring is your sunscreen, sun-protective clothing, sunglasses, any food & drinks you'd like to enjoy onboard. Beer is welcome, but please—no hard liquor or wine, and no glass containers. Get out there and enjoy a world-class charter fishing experience!

My son and I had a blast fishing with Mike. We went out for a four hour fishing trip. As soon as we found a spot to to stop and start fishing we were pulling in fish. My son pulled in a 19 pound and 20 pound Red Snapper. This was our first deep sea fishing trip in the ocean and was throughly impressed. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a guide. We will be back a definitely will be using Mike as a guide again. Thanks Mike!!

Captain Mike is hands down a fantastic guy. We booked a morning trip and ended up staying with him all day and then went out with him and some other locals for the evening. He made us feel like we were part of his island family. Definitely going to book another trip with him. Allowed us to bring my shepherd on the boat for the day and his chihuahua, Cardi, is the cutest and sweetest fur baby.

This was our first fishing trip and we had a great time, even though the weather was against us - a LOT of wind and fog. The conditions did not stop Captain Mike from searching for a good place to fish. He was very determined and he found a great spot . We caught sheephead, flounder, spotted trout and a sting ray that Captain Mike released. We enjoyed his company, talked about the Island and he is very knowledgeable about deep sea fishing. Thank You Captain Mike if we come down again we will look you up.
