Hi, my name is Captain Mike Grispo and I am a born and raised native of Southwest Florida. My father put a rod and reel in my hand when I was a child and I have always enjoyed chasing trophy fish in shallow water. Snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and sharks are my main targets but there are plenty of species of fish here in SWFL to keep any angler satisfied. After thousands of hours chasing fish, I decided to start running a part time guide service. After finding quick success, i dropped my job as a butcher and went full time. With an OUPV 6 pack license from the Coast Guard, I am permitted to do business within the expansive inland waters that I consider my backyard.
