Captain Michael Pittman is rapidly becoming a legendary charter captain for his consistent near record performances resulting from his unique approaches;  techniques and fisherman’s intuition.   Captain Michael grew up in Covington la hunting and fishing all over se la. He attended school at ole miss and started fishing for me in the winter of 2011. He currently is the captain of the 2nd largest yf ever caught in the gulf.   Captain Michael is an extremely gifted fisherman who is expert in his craft and a quite enjoyable to fish with.  He routinely out-catches most other charters fishing the same waters knowing when and how to switch tactics to produce results.  When it comes to YFT results suggest he is an even better fisherman that Captain Eddie.  And that is saying a lot.
