"I have been fishing since I was old enough to hold a fishing rod. My brother and I started fishing the rivers and lakes of Northeastern Oklahoma. About 25 years ago, my brother moved to the Georgia coast and I to the Gulf Coast. I eventually found my way to the Georgia coast and we founded Mad Shark Charters. To date we've fished with guests from 11 countries, as well as all 50 states. Saltwater fishing has become a competitive obsession between the two of us and we're constantly anchored within shouting distance, trash-talking each other. A trip with us is one you won't soon forget!" Captains Adam and David are brothers who love saltwater fishing, and they can't wait to have you along for the ride! Capt. Adam is in charge of inshore trips, and Capt. David is in charge of offshore trips. No matter which one you opt in for, you're bound to have the adventure of a lifetime.
