I am from central Pennsylvania and this was my first trip fishing on skinny water. He put us on big snook, reds, and trout. Impressed with his knowledge of the glades and his willingness to share it with us!

Captain Mike Merritt will put you on the fish. He works hard to find and help you catch fish every time. I have never been disappointed!

Had a another great trip with Captain Mike. We have been using Mike for years now and he never disappoints. Works very hard to ensure a good time. I would recommend Mike to any skill level of fishing.

Mike put us into fish immediately and, when the action began to lag, took us to another location and found fish again. He is personable, flexible and can support both amateur and skilled fishermen. I'd fish with him again.
