If you’re looking for a memorable fishing experience, come down to beautiful Cudjoe Key and make sure that a visit to Fish LLSea charters is at the top of your list. Captain Mark Crissey developed a love for the ocean when exploring it from beneath, as a submariner for the US Navy. Now, he’s dedicated to providing incredible angling adventures from the water’s surface!

Capt. Mark made the transition from submariner to charter operator in 1996, and his main goal is to put you on fish. As well as this, he likes to run each trip with plenty of humor, so you’ll be smiling from beginning to end as you listen to his tales, and helpful tips and tricks. You’ll have the chance to explore the lower keys inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters, all of which are just bustling with a variety of incredible species.

You’ll be traveling on Capt. Mark’s brand-new 24’ Sea Ox 2400CC. She’s decked out with GPS, fishfinder, a flybridge, and a wireless trolling motor for cruising seriously shallow waters without spooking your target. There’s room for up to 4 guests to cast off at the same time, making this vessel the perfect choice for families with little ones, or groups of angling buddies. Your captain will provide life jackets for all ages, too.

As Capt. Mark says, the best thing about saltwater fishing in Cudjoe Key is that you never know what might end up on your line! Inshore, “the big three” species are Bone Fish, Permit and Tarpon. Reef fishing, you’ll be hooking anything from Yellowtail, Mutton and Mangrove Snapper to King and Spanish Mackerel, to Cobia, and a variety of Shark. Head further out to the Gulf Stream and it tuna, wahoo and Mahi Mahi we target.

Tackle, bait, fishing license and fish cleaning are all included.  Come aboard Fish LLSea and get ready for an unforgettable angling adventure!

"After serving for 9 years aboard submarines, I decided I liked being on top the water instead of under it. Charter fishing has allowed me to continue my love of the ocean and fishing, plus I meet some great people in the process. I love every kind of fishing: inshore, nearshore, and Gulf Stream. Inshore Flounder, Trout and Redfish are the big three. Black Drum and Sheepshead are two other good ones to catch and eat. Nearshore, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and all types of Shark are the main targets. Out deep, Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack are my favorite. The best thing about saltwater fishing around Ocean Isle Beach is you never know what you’ll catch next." Capt Mark got his start "under the ocean" nearly 30 years ago, working as a submariner in the US Navy. After leaving in 1996, his desire to be on the ocean stayed with him, which led him to start his own charter company. He can't wait to take you out for a day on that water that you'll remember forever.
