About

Capt. Mike has fished in the Charleston area since the 1970’s. He has been a full time fishing-nature guide for Kiawah Resorts since 2004. His boat is a Shearwater ¬†24′ bay boat with seating for 6. Water and ice are provided on all trips.

We do practice catch and release and participate in South Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources tagging program. We tag and release certain species of fish that the DNR wants to study.
