About The People

Learn more about who’s behind this site and what we’re all about.

Mika Lepisto – General Manager

mika-fishMika was bit by the boating and fishing passion the minute he crossed the Florida state line. When he’s not on the water you’ll find him marketing web sites, enjoying life outside with his dog or cooking a great meal. No matter where he is or what he’s doing at the moment, he eats, sleeps and breathes boats and fishing!

Mika has been building websites since 1993 and enjoys sharing his passions by sharing what he’s learned with others. In addition to life on the water, he is a dog lover and food enthusiast and hopes to some day build a small tropical paradise for himself on some island, some where.

His goal is to work with some of the sharpest fishing and boating experts and create one of the best online fishing and boating resources around.
