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

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.

We had an wonderful day out with Captain Mike, He is very knowledgeable and friendly guide willing to go above and beyond to meet our needs of what we wanted to do. We desperately wanted to see alligators after speaking with Mike he was happy to take us to see them. So we started off to the park and we... More
