Forgotten Coast Adventures

Since 2004, Captain Mark Howze of Forgotten Coast Adventures has had satisfied clients ranging from beginners to avid anglers in search of the perfect day on light tackle.

On trips with Capt. Mark, you will be going after Redfish, Tarpon, and Trout on the flats of St. Joseph Bay, as well as on the inshore and nearshore waters of Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Mexico Beach, and Carrabelle.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 24’ Skeeter bay boat, built in 2013, that can take out up to 4 people. Rods, reels, tackle, and catch cleaning and filleting at the end of your trip are all included, as well as live bait and lures.

You have plenty of time on the water with an experienced guide, who is able to get you into some of the most unspoiled tidal estuaries in the world and put you on Cobia, King Mackerel, Tarpon, Black Seabass, Redfish, and more. In these parts, you also get to admire the vibrant wildlife including Bald Eagles, Osprey, and Dolphins.

The goal of Forgotten Coast Adventures is to provide you with a fun, personalized adventure, regardless of your skill level. Whether you want to stalk a monster Tripletail or just gather some tasty scallops in St. Joe Bay, they’ve got your back!

Tarpon trip with Captain Mark.

VERIFIED   July 29, 2019
We definitely learned why it’s called fishing and not catching however Captain Mark had a lot of knowledge and southern hospitality...
