The Angler

Michael's passion is fishing, both saltwater as well as freshwater. However, saltwater fishing is his preference.  Growing up fishing mostly the inshore waters of Virginia Beach, Virginia  Michael has in recent times has done all of his fishing saltwater fishing in south Florida aboard his 58 foot Viking.   With a two 1,200 horsepower diesel engines (2,400 total), a 1,500 gallon fuel tank, the 58 Viking has 3 staterooms (bedrooms) and 3 heads (restrooms) which can sleep 6.  The creature comforts of the 58 Viking include 4 flatscreen TV's, a Sub-Zero refrigerator & freezer, Samsung washer & dryer and DirecTV which all can be used on the long offshore trips.  There are more images and detailed information about Michael's saltwater fishing at for you to view.

It wasn't until 2015 that Michael began freshwater fishing, but after 30 years of living in land-locked Atlanta, he began fishing in Lake Lanier for Striped Bass. The primary reason for his interest in the Striped Bass species is due to it being an anadromous fish (lives in saltwater & freshwater), and only does so when he's not able to make it to the saltwater.  Michael's freshwater boat is a 25 foot Carolina Skiff powered by a 200 horsepower Suzuki engine and holds 80 gallos of fuel, a far cry from the 58 Viking.  Although the Carolina Skiff is docked on Lake Lanier, a few times a year Michael will transport the boat to West Point Lake in Lagrange, Georgia in his continued effort to chase Striped Bass.  There are more images and detailed information at to learn more about Michael's freshwater fishing life.
