The Captain

Capt. Mike Saio is a third-generation fisherman. Mike was born in Queens, yet spent most of his summers fishing the waters off Montauk, New York. He opened his first charter business as a USCG Licensed Captain for Hire in the late ’90s with the Mishell Lee, a Webber’s Cove 26. After just 3 years, he upgraded to the 38’ Mishell II. Since 2010, Captain Mike has run private sportfishing vessels here in South Florida. He has relocated the Mishell II to Palm Beach to take advantages of South Florida’s extended fishing season.
