Capt Mark Guillots Fishing Guide

Padre Boulevard
South Padre Island TX, United State…

Capt Mark Guillots Fishing Guide takes you to the waters of South Padre Island to sample some of the finest inshore fish the area stores. Enjoy a quick escape to wet a line or a full-day adventure in the Bay to fill the cooler.

Capt. Mark specializes in chasing schools of Redfish and Black Drum when the conditions allow. As well as that, you will be able to get your hands on Mangrove Snapper, Snook, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. As well as that, Tarpon and Sharks are also around.

Beginners to professional anglers, everyone is welcome to join in the adventure. Capt. Mark is a great teacher and enjoys working with children and amateur fishermen. There is nothing better than seeing a smile on a child’s face when they hook in their first ever fish!

When exploring the bite inshore, fishing the flats, and patrolling the backcountry in search of fish, you will be using the finest light tackle by Penn and Quantum. When you’re done catching, the fish will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. Live croaker will be available upon request at an extra cost of $10 per dozen.

Capt Mark Guillots Fishing Guide will take out aboard a spacious 24’ Dargel flats boat. It is a comfortable fishing vessel that can hold up to 6 passengers. The boat comes powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine and can cruise at a top speed of 30 knots.
