Mike Barksdale has been on a boat since he was a toddler with his parents, fishing primarily off the Oregon coast. They fished for salmon, rockfish, and sturgeon. When Mike turned 16, he ventured off on his own with the boat and went offshore to catch whatever he could get to bite my hooks. He turned my passion for fishing into a business, and started guiding in 2005. Mike’s reward is not financially driven: His reward is being able to share memorable fishing experiences with his clients. He gets the same feeling watching a client catch a fish, as he does when he catches a fish himself. He loves what he does and hopes to continue sharing his love of fishing for years to come through his guiding business – Fish On Extreme. He currently fishes the waters in Neah Bay/Pacific Ocean from March-May, catching Chinook; and the waters in Washington/Pacific Ocean from June-October fishing Halibut, Sturgeon, Salmon, Tuna, Rockfish, and Crab; and in the Columbia River fishing Salmon & Sturgeon.
