Cap'n Mike is simply the best. We have fished and hunted with dozens of guides over the last 50+ years (since I was a kid) and have NEVER had the customer service, personal attention, and just FUN as we've had with Avid Angling. Call him and talk to him about your needs and expectations, he's very creative and GREAT with... More

I cannot say enough good things about Capt. Mike. As part of our 10th Wedding Anniversary trip to Charleston, my wife and I decided to spend part of the day on the water fishing. With just the 2 of us on board with Mike, we had a great time. Capt. Mike has a laid back and friendly personality, We really... More

Found Captain Mike originally in May. It was a last minute thought on my part. Emailed and texted 4 different charters, Mike was the only one that responded. Had a fabulous time!! Caught close to a dozen sharks and one HUGE stingray. Booked Avid Angling again mid September, fishing wasn't as good, no fault of Captain Mike's, but still had... More

We had a wonderful experience fishing with Mike. A wonderful time for me and my 13 year old son and his friend. Great fishing but a better time. Mike is very laid back and accommodating. Good conversation and very knowledgeable. We will definitely return.

Great inshore fishing trip with Mike. It was a little hot so the fish were a little slow. I would definitely would use again, only next time fora full day!

We had an awesome day out with Captain Mike today. Within five minutes of dropping out lines we caught a respectable 20 lb. red fish. We also caught a bunch of sharks (Very exciting for our 15 and 17 year old daughters) and a sting ray. Captain Mike is very knowledgeable about the local fish and how to catch them.... More

My 13 year old son really wanted to catch sharks and Mike turned us on to a lot. We pulled in many fish, some big; 4 were over 5' in length. We had several presumably bigger ones break off under water, and an acrobatic one broke off mid air. I am an avid fisherman, I book charters frequently. The weather... More

My wife booked a last minute charter with Capt. Mike and Avid Angling charters for today. We met Mike at the ramp promptly at 7am and headed out for bait. Mike netted some menhaden and the plan for the day was to follow some shrimp boats and catch sharks, reds, and whatever else decided to swim behind. Unfortunately, we were... More
