Capt Mike led my husband and I on a private marsh fishing experience. Husband caught a redfish on his second cast so needless to say, the day started out great. I am somewhat of a novice and Mike was very helpful (thanks for baiting those little crabs for me - eek!). After catching redfish, trout, sheepshead and black sea bass... More

The best possible fishing guide / boat captain! Flexible and responsible! We planned to go for off-shore fishing on the reeves but the weather left more to wish for. Our Captain gave us the information so it was easy to decide to call the trip off. We also got the possibility to go up in the creeks for red fish,... More

Mike did a great job putting us on a monster 34" redfish, the largest he said he's caught in 10 years as a guide in the marshes. Our boys had a great time and we would definitely come back again.

I'm always skeptical when hiring a guide because of the past experiences. You know, "you should have been here, yesterday". Mike was like the guides you see on TV. Knowledgeable, sincere, and only wanting us to succeed in catching fish. We caught some huge "mogan" redfish in the marshes behind the ICW. It was a great day, for sure.

We had a great time this morning. Mike did a great job find fishing and also insuring we had a great day. He was very knowledgeable not only about fishing but also in Charleston. I would highly recommend him as a guide and look forward to fishing with him again when we bring our son back to Charleston.

Bottom line: Avid Angling is worth every penny and is a terrific guide service. As a former fly fishing guide myself I can tell you honestly that Mike knows what he is doing and he will put you on the fish. On our half day trip we started the morning off BIG with almost a dozen bull red's! It was... More

I'm a die hard fly fisherman from Montana and I've basically sworn off spinner fishing, but after 15 minutes on the boat with Mike I was hooked! He is a very fun person to fish with and he matches the excitement of people who have caught their first fish. When someone who is as welcoming and personable as he is... More

Awesome trip. Captain Mike knew what he was doing, was very laid back, and was excited to work with what we wanted to do, which made it relaxing and fun. Also, he has some sweet stories. Even though it was the slow season, he took us to a spot where we were able to catch a lot of fish and... More

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
