Mike Merritt Native Guide Services Reviews
Captain Mike Merritt is a fount of knowledge and wit. We had a great time and will do it again. Limits on trout and fought monster snook. Thanks Mike! more »
Best captain ever. Native of the area, really knows the best spots. Caught snook, sea trout, and more. Best fishing experience to date. Will definitely go again. more »
Mike did it again. We were fishing on a slow day. North winds 10-15, red tide in the outside and nobody catching fish. Morning had a few fish and Mike must have put 50 miles on the boat. Mike decided to go up creek and we slammed the snook. None were keepers but at the end of the day we had boated over 40 snook and some good sized mangrove snapper. Had two big fish on but lost both. Nobody knows the 10,000 islands better than Mike.
Can't be beat.
