Florida Saltwater Flats Fishing

7022 County Road 358
Steinhatchee FL, United States

Captain Mark’s 22 ft Sterling Pro XS with its 250 HP Mercury engine is a great vessel on which to explore the inshore fishing opportunities around Florida’s Big Bend area. Fish with him for Redfish, Trout, Cobia and more using light tackle and jigging and popping methods. The boat is equipped with well-known brands, with a Power Pole anchoring system, Okuma rods and reels and Fins Fishing lines on board to enhance your experience.

Captain Mark is praised by former customers for his sense of humor and professional demeanor. He prides himself on the 100% effort he puts in to helping his customers catch as many fish as possible. An advocate of wildlife conservation who himself tends to practice catch and release when possible, Capt. Mark is still more than happy to clean and fillet your catch for you to take away.

A typical trip with Mark will take you around the area of Steinhatchee and Crystal River, which is a beautiful, family friendly spot for fishing and swimming. Among other species, he mainly fishes for Redfish, Trout and Cobia. He enjoys using artificial lures to catch Redfish, and his favorite are Gold Spoon and Target.

Capt. Mark also offers scalloping trips, which can be great fun for all involved. He’ll take you to abundant scallop beds where people often limit out on scallops, at the same time as taking in the beautiful nature and wildlife of the Big Bend area. As scallops are normally found in shallow water, all you need to bring with you is your mask, snorkel and fins.

If you are part of a large group that is not a problem, as Captain Mark works with a number of captains who can accommodate you. He can also provide lodging if required.
