“Captain Mike, Thanks for a great morning of “catching”, not just fishing.  We really enjoyed your charter and your boat was very comfortable.  We will contact you for sure the next time we come back to the Florida panhandle.”

“Captain Mike, Thank you for the memorable day of fishing aboard your beautiful boat! Your equipment and boat was clean, comfortable, well set up….and we appreciated your relaxed but competent style of guiding. When we were picked up off the beach and began fishing right away we knew we were in for an awesome day.  Despite the challenging conditions due to the weather right after Hurricane Isaac, you were able to hunt down and put us on some great fish.  The bonito and redfish were a blast to catch. It was also totally cool spotting the turtles, schools of stingray, and porpoises. Who needs an eco tour when you can fish and spot wildlife at the same time!!  We are looking forward to our next adventure with Emerald Ghost Charters!”

“This was the BEST fishing charter my family and I have ever been on by far! I would highly recommend Captain Mike of Emerald Ghost Fishing Charters to anyone visiting the Florida Panhandle. He knows where the fish live and just how to catch them. We caught at least 50 fish between my son, wife, and I. Captain Mike was very professional and easy going as well, his knowledge of the area and different species was impressive. I will be using the fishing tips he shared with us in my own fishing back home in Iowa. Our family will definitely book his guide services on our next trip to Destin Florida.”

“Coming to Florida will be even more exciting next year now that we know to fish with Emerald Ghost Charters.  We fished in the bay and caught several redfish, and tons of trout.  The inshore fishing is so amazing in the Florida Panhandle.  In the past we always went on big party boats and only caught small snapper.  From now on we are doing a private charter with Captain Mike, the experience was so much more personal and we had a blast learning something new.”

“When our family travels to Destin Florida for vacation, we ALWAYS make sure to book a charter with Captain Mike!  My son and I love to target big bull redfish, there is just nothing more exciting in our opinion.  Captain Mike knew right where they were yesterday!  Every time we have fished with him we have done well.   Thanks again Mike for another great trip!!”

“The fishing was outstanding in Navarre Florida this past week.  My wife and our 2 children fished with Captain Mike of Emerald Ghost Charters and he put us on the big ones.  We wanted to try for kingfish in the Gulf and boy were we glad we did!  We caught several fish weighing over 20 lbs.  It was SO much fun, we can’t wait to come back and fish with Mike again!”

“My brother and I fished last week with Captain Mike Bauman and had a great time.  We went sight-fishing down the beach in Destin, the water was crystal clear and we watched several big bull reds eat our lures right in front of our eyes.  It was the best fishing trip we ever had.  It sure beats bass fishing at the Lake.  Cant wait to do it again!  Thanks for everything Mike!”

“Great charter in the Destin area! I stayed on Navarre beach and how I found Emerald Ghost but Captain Mike really showed me a top notch time near the Destin Pass. We fished in the sound most of the day since the Gulf was a bit rough but I was really pleased. Caught some massive redfish. Several in the 20-30lb range, it was quite fun! I really do love visiting the panhandle and will give Captain Mike a call next time I’m in the area. Very accommodating and knowledgeable captain!”

“Great fishing! Had a great time with Captain Mike! We were down in Florida on vacation and took a 1/2 day charter with Emerald Ghost Charters and caught alot of keeper sized fish that we cooked up for dinner. He cleaned the catch for us and the boat was really nice. My whole family had a great time. We’ll be back to fish with him next year for sure! They really do have the best rates around too!”
