reel-cast_icon WHAT OUR CUSTOMER ARE SAYING

Capt. Mike runs a high end guide service and is hands down one of the most experienced Anglers on the CT and RI coast. He consistently puts clients of all levels on big fish, but even more rewarding is the experience of fishing with Mike and learning the sport from his angle. Capt. Mike is passionate about what he does and is on the water constantly. I highly recommend his charter.

I have done 2 trips with Mike in 2016 and both were simply incredible. He puts you on fish, teaches you everything from bait presentation to correct fighting posture to throwing a cast net – this dude is the real deal. HIGHLY recommended!!!

Mike is very professional and a terrific guide.  He knew right where the fish were and put us on top of them continuously.  We met him at 5AM at the boat ramp and returned to the ramp at 10AM.  Over the 5 hour period we landed close to 20 stripers in the 25-35lb range – not to mention the ones that got away.  I highly recommend Reel Cast Charters.

Mike is the hardest working light tackle guide on CT! I have made many trips with him over the past few years, and he continuously put us on the fish. He will fish local, or he will run for miles, he does everything he can to get you into fish. Very professional, and fun to fish with. Lots of knowledge and experience. Highly recommended.

I booked an albie trip in the fall with Reel Cast Charters. Captain Mike did a fantastic job guiding me to catch my first hardtail, as well as fill a cooler full of bluefish and put us on a schoolie striper blitz. I am a novice fisherman. He was patient, informative, professional and incredibly helpful. Aside from being great fun, the time with Captain Mike was a solid investment in my fishing education. I plan to book another charter with him next year.

Simply the best captain around.  Mike goes out of his way to make sure that each trip is a success. I have been on his charter several times and have enjoyed every trip.  I even landed my biggest fish to date 39 pounds.  I highly recommend Reel Cast Charters.

Awesome guide. I’ve fished with Capt. Mike multiple times and will continue to make it an annual trip to get it and fish with him.

Wanting to take my 14 year old daughter on a well-guided fishing trip, I researched CT guides quite thoroughly before I called up Captain Mike and pulled the trigger.  I’m glad I did.  Mike wasted no time in getting bait and putting us onto fish.  He was very attentive to our needs, especially so to my daughter’s.  She never waited more than a couple of seconds between casts.  I’ve fished with guides before that were impatient, so it was a relief to fish with someone who never showed signs of a temper, frustration, or impatience.  In fact, he took time to share his knowledge.

Ultimately, a guide is booked for the purpose of catching fish.  Mike definitely came through in that regard.  My daughter’s first fish, caught almost immediately, was a trophy-sized 42 lb fish.  At the end of the night, we caught almost a dozen fish and lost several others due mostly to my own hook-setting mistakes.  Given that my daughter outfished me by 4 fish, I’d call the trip a huge success.

Mike is passionate about what he does, as he readily admits and makes obvious.  I’m planning on a surface action fishing trip in the Fall.  It’s a guarantee that I’ll be calling Captain Mike Roy.

Captain Mike is all around great guy and great guide.  Mike put us on the fish several times and wish we hadn’t been so rusty cuz we missed a few no fault to him.  I got lucky and pulled in a 29′ Striper real close to the boat on a plug which provided a great dinner the next night.  Mike stayed out an extra hour trying to get us more and probably would have stayed longer if we hadn’t got that one! We will definitely go out with Mike again.

If you’re looking to sit back, drink beers, and troll around a reef while snapping wire, look for another charter. When you step on Captain Mike Roy’s boat, it’s game time. Plain and simple, he is a big fish magnet and the most knowledgeable and safest captain I know of. Whether it’s live-lining bunker, slinging eels, or spooking for top-water explosions, Mike knows how to dial-in on trophy striped bass in Connecticut waters. He runs the most consistent light-tackle charter business in terms of putting up big fish, just take a peek at his Facebook photos to see for yourself. He doesn’t have just one specialty either. Mike grew up on Long Island Sound and is a very well-rounded angler. In the spring, he can you put you on holdover stripers in Connecticut’s tidal rivers, In the warmer months, he will key in on big resident bass in their summer patterns. And when it turns to autumn, Captain Roy can switch gears on a dime and put you on bonito and false albacore, spin or fly, and even blackfish on the jig. I have been fortunate to fish with Mike several times and before each trip the excitement is hard to contain because I know exactly what I’m in for–a great experience and a chance at a fish of lifetime.

Awesome charter. Mike is a great captain who is easy to be around. Great boat, with great gear. Mike worked to put us on fish the entire charter. I caught my two personal best the first time out with Mike. He is able to trailer his boat to wherever the fish are, which is a great option to have. I’ve been on fishing charters all over the U.S., and I would highly recommend going out with Mike.

Went out recently with Mike, my brother and nephew for a evening of striper fishing !  Was only expecting a few fish but ended with over 25 stripers between the three of us.  I know this doesn’t happen all the time but what a incredible evening of fishing !  Mike quickly secured bait with one cast of the net and within minutes put us on fish ! Very informative and most importantly very patient !  making sure everyone caught fish !  I have met Mike a couple of times prior to this trip and his good guy attitude was no different on board his boat.  We will be making this a yearly event !  Highly recommended !

Great charter, Captain Mike is one of the best fisherman I know, he works hard to hook you up, ton of knowledge and a safe boat. I never knew how much I loved eels (the stripers too) until he hooked me up one night. Don’t miss out, call him

Mike of Reel Cast Charters, is hands down one of the most experienced Captains I know of in the North East.  Mike is an expert striped bass fisherman and has perfected the techniques he uses over the years, effectively creating his own unique style of fishing. Every time I have fished with Mike I have landed fish, included my pb 39 lb striped bass and a few more in the 30 pound range.  He has the ability of teach even the most experienced angler and put them on world class fishing action, and also put beginner and moderate level anglers of any age on big fish.  I would and have recommended him, numerous times to anyone who is interested in a once of a lifetime fishing experience.

What can I say about Mike that the pictures don’t tell …  let me try….Mike loves what he does, is passionate about the fishery, has an excellent boat for what he does and throws a mean cast net !

Oh yeah, we caught some good stripes too. My 14 year old told me he wants to go back out and he is hardcore so enuff said !

Book him.

I have fished several times with Mike and he is a true professional.  From his equipment to his demeanor, he is the perfect captain for ALL ages.  I have always caught fish with Mike and as a matter of fact, our boat landed over 50 Striped Bass ranging from 20-35 pounds.  It was an epic night.  We’ll be back for sure!  Thanks Mike.
