Mike moved from Wisconsin to Ocean Reef at age 14. He grew up working on his dad's charter boat. Mike bought out that business when he was 21 years old and operated it successfully for many years. In 1995, Mike's best customer lured him away to be the family's private captain. He managed and captained their boats for 25 years before retiring from that position. Mike first earned his 100 Ton Master's license in 1978.
In addition to boating, Mike is also an avid hunter and a skilled fisherman. He enjoys fishing for everything from billfish to giant tuna, and has captained fishing teams to numerous tournament wins over the years. Mike's extensive knowledge of all things boating and fishing related, combined with his integrity, make him the perfect guy to help others buy or sell their boats.
