Captain Mike developed his passion for fishing at a very early age. He grew up fishing on his father’s boats out of Atlantic Highlands, NJ. At the age of 12 Mike fished for his first time out of the Florida Keys and ever since his goal was to become a Florida Keys Charter Boat Captain! Through college Mike worked his summer jobs working as a deck hand in New Jersey. In 2011 Mike worked his first winter as a mate in Islamorada. In 2012 Mike bought his first boat and started his business in New Jersey. From the start he always knew the Florida Keys were the ultimate goal, hence the name “Jersey Key”. After a few seasons of fishing, seasonal traveling back and forth from NJ-FL, “Jersey Key” finally made Marathon the homeport! From tournament fishing to family reef trips Mike will make sure you have the best time possible and will always give his 100% to find the fish.
