Mike has spent the past three decades fishing the inshore and offshore waters both commercially and recreationally from Florida to Maine. He is equally passionate whether chasing Tuna and Swordfish in the Canyons, Giant Tuna in New England, Mako and Threshers Midshore, or Trophy Striped Bass and Fluke inshore. Mike’s reputation as a consistent producer along with an outgoing friendly demeanor, has made Mike one of the Premier Charter Captains on the East Coast. During his career, Mike has placed in many tournaments and has put his clients on countless fish of a lifetime. 



Wicked Tuna FV Pinwheel

Captain Drake Roy grew up fishing up and down the East Coast. From tournament fishing to over a decade working in the commercial tuna industry, Drake knows exactly how to land a tuna on both conventional gear but also spin rods. Drake spent his summers on the FV Moonshine, which led him to be featured on Wicked Tuna, aboard the FV Pinwheel. Spending more time than almost any other 25 year old, Drake has fished the Canyons more than most people on the East Coast.
