CAPTAIN SHARKY

President & CEO  

36′ Contender / 2020 Trip Honda 250’s

Graduating from Texas A&M University in 2016 with a Maritime Administration Business Degree, Michael started his first business,  Out Cast Fishin Charters in 2014. His passion for fishing was evident as he fished between classes and became a US Coast Guard licensed Captain while still in school.   A chain-reaction followed as he developed the Monsta Apparel Brand before graduation.

Out Cast Charters has been voted the #1 Charter Company in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 as well as ‘Best Boat Captain’ all years.

He is the Saltwater Ambassador for Academy Sports & Outdoors, spokesman for Honda Marine Motors, a regular guest on The 610 Morning Show with Mickey Eastman and is the host of  The Monsta Catch series. Visit him on his YouTube Channel, Captain Sharky as well as Instagram and Facebook.

OUR CAPTAINS

Cajun Chris

CAJUN CHRIS

23′ Center Console Robalo / 2020 Honda 250

Originally from Louisiana, Chris began fishing at five years old with his Dad. They had a home in Texas as well so he was exposed to both salt and fresh water from his beginnings. Some of his favorites were fishing the marshes, bayous and offshore.  His childhood dream was to be a captain but things do not always go as planned. After graduating, Chris’ exposure to the retail industry quickly took over and he loved his job. He also met and married his all-time favorite gal and now has two kiddos. Needless to say, fishing on weekends became less frequent. The deep rooted passion to be a captain lasted many years. We are blessed to have met him at the perfect time to join our Out Cast Crew in 2020. Chris is full of laughter and fun and is a fan favorite!

Maritime Mike

MARITIME MIKE

25′ Center Console Sea Hunt /2020 Honda 250

Mike is a graduate from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors in Maritime Transportation and holds an Unlimited Tonnage License. To say he is crazy for fishing, well let’s just say that’s an understatement.  He has fished as long as he can remember from shallow water bays to the Gulf of Mexico and is well versed in all things mechanical. After graduation he worked offshore for a while, but time with family and his love of fishing, called him closer to home. He enjoys teaching tips and tricks during his charters as well as chatting about the shipping industry. Mike joined us in late 2021 and is a great asset to Out Cast as one if his goals is to have fun while on the hunt for Monsta Fish!
