Mike has fished with us since we started the Ray Jarvis Memorial. He was my roomie a couple times. Really good guy. Sorry to see him leave us so soon.

What? Another total character for sure. He had an unforgettable laugh...often my buddy hangin' out in our chairs on the stern, talking about nothing-and everything at the same time.

We were out there a looong time when running toward the barn on the last trip. He, as always was covered head to toe with a safari hat, long sleeves and pants, etc. We were burning beers and the sun was burning everything else, including the only exposed part of his body-the top of his hands. I didn't notice that until he showed me at dinner the HUGE blisters....OUCH!

Muskie Mike, a big part of you will stay at the rocks and on the boat with us...where you belong. RIP

So sorry to hear of this earlier today. Such a great guy, and never a bad thing to say. I won't forget that laugh or the good times in the Gumba Lounge. He will be missed on the RJ trip next year.

Here's a shot of Mike with a YFT from the Ray Jarvis Memorial trip this past summer.


Here's another of Mike (second from the right) hangin' out in the Gumba Lounge on the way up the line in 2014.


Tight lines buddy...

WOW. Fished with him a couple of times and was looking forward to do it again this coming summer. He will be missed. Truly a shock.
