Hi, my name is Capt. Mike and I've been fishing Fort Lauderdale since the mid 70's.
I grew up fishing with my family catching mahi mahi, sailfish, wahoos and whatever else would bite the hook, when I was not fishing on my grandfather's boat I was at the pier, or fishing the canal bridges for tarpon, snook and jacks.
My father and grandfather taught me a lot about fishing and boat handling but I always dreamed of working on a big sport fish boat. In 1994 I finally got my break on a local charter boat, living the dream and it only got better. Later that year I got a job on a boat going to the Bahamas where I went to fish the Blue Marlin tournaments in the Bahamas Billfish Championship Series, where I won and placed in many tournaments. I was catching the biggest fish I could dream of. I also fished Costa Rica , St. Thomas and Mexico .
After awhile I got tired of being gone all the time and wanted to settle down so I came back to Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach area where I ran a boat called the Intoxication a few years later I started working on the Hooked Up with Capt. Taco. . Capt. Taco taught me quite a lot especially about the business. He gave me my big break and asked me to go into business with him.
I now own theLocal Knowledge, I have a first class crew and boat and I love what I do.
Call me and let me show you and your guest a great time and catch some FISH!!
