Captain Mike started fishing as a young boy on the Barnegat Bay, local rivers, ponds and lakes of New Jersey. By the time he was 18 years old he purchased his first fishing boat and started targeting Striped Bass, Weakfish and Fluke in Barnegat and Raritan bays. By the time he reached his mid 20s and a few boats later, Mike started fishing out of the Manasquan inlet and started targeting trophy Stripe Bass, fluke and pelagic fish for the next 12 years before moving his boat to the Raritan bay. Captain Mike's passion for Stripe bass lead him to Raritan bay and the NY area. He currently holds a 50 ton Master Captains license. When it comes to an experienced fishing charter captain in New Jersey, Capt. Mike has the experience necessary to make your trip the best it can be!
