Fort Lauderdale Fishing Captain

Meet Captain Mike Johnson

Captain Mike JohnsonI have been fishing in Fort Lauderdale since the mid 70s. Like many anglers, I learned to fish from my father and grandfather and subsequently took it to the next level by becoming a professional fisherman. I started my fishing career cleaning fish, swabbing decks and rigging baits. Along the way, I learned tons of cool techniques from great Captains and developed tricks of my own.

I’m obsessed with catching fish and I’m particularly fond of plucking monsters out of the water like sailfish, swordfish, sharks, and wahoo. That swordfish you see in the picture at the top of this page (and the one to the right) was plucked out of the Atlantic Ocean just a few miles from where I keep my boat.

I’ve fished extensively throughout Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Central America, and Mexico. If it swims in saltwater there’s a good chance I’ve caught it! I’m a father and a family man and I love having young anglers on my boat. My crew shares the same passion for service, entertaining, and education as I do, and we’re just as comfortable with corporate groups as we are with families.

I love talking about fishing so feel free to give me a call or drop me an e-Mail anytime!
