Captain Mark has over a decade of experience fishing in the waters of the Gulf Coast. He is an expert in getting you on the hottest bite in no time, no matter what trip you choose. It can be a full day or a half day trip, but one thing’s for sure — you’re going to catch something awesome.

Among many species that could find their way to your hook, the favorites like Redfish, Flounder, Tripletail, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, and Black Drum are the most common, and catching each of them will leave you with a different feeling and story to tell. What’s more, you’ll get to reel them in on light tackle, which is especially exciting and challenging.

All this angling fun is possible thanks to the captain’s reliable 22’ Triton bay boat that accommodates up to 4 anglers. The vessel comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha V6 engine and can take you wherever the most productive fishing spots are for the day. This includes artificial reefs, jetties, barrier island flats, and marsh bayous.

You will be provided with all of the proper equipment needed to fish safely and successfully, so don’t worry about rods, reels, tackle, and bait, Capt. Mark has got you covered.

Growing up less than a block away from the shoreline in Pass Christain, Mississippi had its perks! As a child, I learned to Flounder and wade fish the beachfront as a hobby and found it's a way to provide excellent table fare. As I grew so did my obsession with the sport. Logging my trips for moon phases, tidal movements, barometric pressure, and weather conditions correlated to fish activity began before I was old enough to drive. If I wasn't walking to the beach after school to wade fish next to the longest private pier on the Coast, I was getting dropped off at the harbor to fish from the rockpile and seawall for hours. Then came the boat. Since then, I have logged countless hours on the water and still feel like a kid every time I leave the dock. The stakes are higher now and the passion is flourishing more than ever. I aim to bring the joy I get from chasing fish to everyone who gets on board with me. I want to share my knowledge with customers and to learn from them as well.
