Introducing Mike Harvey – a lifelong angler who kindled his passion for fishing from a tender age. Hailing from Muskegon, his fascination with fishing began in the company of his father, spending countless days out on the waters of Lake Michigan in pursuit of salmon. This early connection laid the foundation for Mike's enduring love for angling. A significant shift occurred when his family relocated to a home along a lively trout stream, where the cyclical migrations of salmon and steelhead cemented his commitment to chasing these elusive species all year round.

The early 2000s saw Mike's aspiration evolve into a reality, as he realized his lifelong dream of becoming a certified captain and guide in the picturesque landscapes of Alaska. Here, the mighty Alagnak River became his arena as he pursued the five diverse species of salmon that called it home. After a transformative stint in Alaska, he returned to his roots in Michigan, leveraging his acquired expertise on charter boats stationed in Grand Haven and Muskegon. The year 2009 marked a pivotal moment in his journey when he took the leap to acquire his own charter boat, giving rise to Salmon Wagon Charters – an enterprise focusing on salmon, trout, and walleye excursions.

The gratification of Mike's craft lies in witnessing the creation of indelible memories out on the water. Whether it's the thrill of reeling in a prized catch or witnessing the delight of someone securing their inaugural salmon, his commitment to crafting unforgettable experiences is unwavering. Fueled by a profound dedication to his craft, Mike passionately imparts the knowledge he's amassed over the years, embodying the spirit of mentorship instilled in him by revered captains.

With a profound understanding of fishing dynamics, Mike's preferred baits include the Stinger Blue Green Dolphin UV, Mixed Veggies UV, Gold Jordo, and Gator UV. Among his arsenal, the Stinger Side Kick TC 2 Face and 8-inch Stinger flashers hold a place of distinction. His preference extends to Jeans flashers in Black, Blue, Green, and Yellow, revealing his keen insight into the intricacies of different fishing environments.

For over two decades, Mike Harvey has been at the forefront of the angling realm. Notably, his affiliation with Stinger spans around 20 years, wherein he's actively collaborated to formulate effective patterns and color combinations for spoons and flashers. His contributions reflect an unswerving commitment to advancing the art of fishing, making him an invaluable asset to the Gibbs Pro Team.
