Muskoka Fishing Guide

Fishing guide Mike Bertelsen was born and raised in Muskoka. Mike had the opportunity to attend high school in the Florida Keys where he learned to guide from some of the finest Captains in South Florida.

Captain Action Charters was established in 1988. Today Captain Mike runs one of Ontario's top rated guide services.

As a full time guide, Mike spends over 200 days a year on the water, allowing him to closely track the fish as the water temperatures change and baitfish move. This guarantees his clients the best success possible.

Mike has made many television appearances over the years, discussing everything from boat handling to choosing the right color of lure. He also presents many seminars throughout the season at different Bass Pro Shops events and major fishing shows, where he gives tips to the public.


Captain Action has also been featured in hundreds of magazines and newspaper articles throughout Ontario.
