Guided by Michael Muscio
Captain Michael caught his first trout at a fish farm when he was 5. He has lived around these parts his whole life and fished ever since he was a kid. It’s his love for fishing that made him decide to start running his own business and spend every day doing what he loves. Seeing his customers’ face-splitting smiles when they hook a Rockfish is his absolute favorite part of the job! Whether you're hunting or fishing, Michael is an outstanding guide to California's Central Coast.
Whether you're an experienced fisherman looking to step into a kayak, a kayaker who wants to catch some monsters, or a beginner who wants to try it all, this trip is for you! No matter what you've done in the past, nothing compares to the thrill of chasing gamefish from a sit-on-top kayak; you're literally inches off the water's surface, and you'll feel every tug and turn as a big Lingcod, Rockfish, or Bass takes the line. These fish occupy the bottom of the water column, hanging out over rocks and structure where they can ambush prey. They also love kelp forests, so you'll target these areas looking for big hook-ups. To get bit, you'll bottomfish and jig on a variety of baits and lures. Let Captain Michael be your guide—he's fished here for years and reliably puts his clients on trophy specimens! The kayaks, rods, reels, and tackle and totally provided for you! All you need to bring is your California Fishing License, sun protection, and a good attitude! Get out there and bag some keepers.

We had an awesome experience kayaking and fishing among the kelp beds. Otters and birds were everywhere. Oh yeah, and rock fish. Mike is a great companion and guide.
Things started out slow, took a few shifts for us to find the fish, but they hit well afterwards. We caught a variety of rock fish in addition to a lingcod and a shark. Mike was well prepared, had a safety plan, bait, and good quality equipment. We also saw some adorable otters nearby the fish site…so cool to see them thrive in the wild. BTW, no restrooms near the launch point, so have a plan in advance. Good luck!! …
Unfortunately, we did not get to stay in the water long because my hubby got sea sick. However, Mike was awesome!!! He was very patient and detailed. He made sure we felt safe, gave a detailed demonstration before getting in the water, and had quality equipment. Mike was not upset yet very understanding that we had to go in fast. You get to keep the fish if you catch!!! Other people were in the same area kayaking/fishing as well. …

Mike is a great tour guide! He’s genuine, honest and passionate about what he does. This is my third experience ocean kayak fishing with mike over the last year. I’ve brought along friends and family each time and they all loved the experience. He’s taught me a lot about intuition on the water and watching the weather for safety. I’ve grown to love the sport and I thank mike for that! …
