“Make his Arms Hurt”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I wanted to give my grandson an opportunity to catch very large fish and presented Capt Mike with very specific criteria. BIG FISH. LOTS OF ACTION. ARM BUSTING EXPERIENCE NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN. Boy was Capt Mike up to the task. Four hours of amberjack fishing pretty much wore the little guy and Grandma out. Capt Mike's knowledge, experience, and care of the environment is impressive. All fish were returned alive which added to a most perfect morning.

“SECOND TRIP BETTER THAN FIRST!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

What an awesome time we had the first week of June with Capt. Mike. The weather had been blowing and going the first part of the week so we booked with him on Friday before flying back to Ms. on Sat. We left out a little before 8- weather beautiful and boating was great. Capt. Mike's boat is so great for the way and where he fishes. So many people want the big , sport fisher boats. I used to too , until I realized we were paying for a lot of fuel and boat riding! Capt. Mikes' boat is perfect and comfortable! To start our trip off we went out and caught ballyhoo by Capt. Mike's skillful cast net throwing which is a talent to be able to do. Then we didn't have to go too far and we dropped in about 100 feet of water and started catching mutton snapper and yellowtail. We ended up catching 7 mutton snapper, a mangrove snapper, 10 "flag" yellowtail snapper and a 35 lb. king mackerel. We catch a lot of kings in the Ala. gulf so we let Capt. Mike keep the king to smoke for dip, etc... Another fabulous trip. Capt. Mike may not talk a lot or entertain like many charter captains - mates.. BUT... he can put you on some fish!! Now, he is only human , so if you have a trip without catching any fish--it's probably not his fault:)
This was our second trip with Capt. Mike and we are already looking at the calendar when we can go back.

“Great fishing!”

Caught snappers and giant black grouper! Captain Mike worked his tail off to make sure we caught fish! We went last minute in the afternoon and Mike accommodated us...

My buddy and I were looking for a good time and to catch a few fish.... but boy did the day exceed our expectations! The experienced staff gave top notch service and fishing pointers while we catch fish, after fish, after FISH! The day was a total success and would HIGHLY recommend this charter.

“Very competent fishing charter”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Capt. Mike Tauti was raised in Marathon, and his father was a charter captain also. Mike knows the waters around Marathon like his back yard. He knows all the reefs, wrecks, and tricks to finding fish for you. He works hard to give you a great experience. You will definitely get your money's worth.
