“Way2Early” is his SeaHunt 18’ boat, powered by a 90 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine allowing it to develop some real speed. Garmin and ICOM navigational electronics are fitted on board for the best fishing experience. The vessel has a live bait tank which will allow for your bait fish to stay fresh and ready for action.

The charter offers a variety of packages to suit any angler’s needs. You can choose the duration of your adventure from a variety of options. Targeting a variety of Shark species – Bull, Nurse, Gummy, Bonnethead, Hammerhead, and Blacktip – this will be an adventure you’ll remember for years to come.

All the fishing gear you’ll need will be provided for you on board, and when it comes to the smaller specimens, the crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch. As children are welcome on board, don’t hesitate to bring your kids and have an adventure-filled family trip out on these beautiful waters.

Each trip with Capt. Mike is not only a memorable and fun experience but is also a great opportunity to gain some knowledge of the local ecosystem. Enjoy some of the most beautiful natural views while enjoying your day on the water reeling in some monster Shark specimens.

Join Mike’s Outdoor Adventures, head out on Floridian waters, and have an unforgettable Shark fishing expedition!

Captain Mike has more than half a century of experience in fishing. It has been my hobby since I was a young boy. Apart from fishing the local waters, I've fished the waters of Alaska, the western and the eastern United States, South America, Canada, and the Bahamas. My knowledge is broad and I readily share it with his guests and friends. I enjoy teaching others various fishing techniques, knot tying, live bait fishing, boating safety, shark fishing techniques and navigation.
