Captain Mark Franklin targets multiple species aboard his bay boat and his airboat (click on the captain’s profile below to view and book airboat trips). Based out of Riviera, Texas, Captain Mark will show you the best of what inshore fishing on Texas’s Gulf Coast has to offer.

Bay fishing trips will be held aboard a 23 ft center console catamaran that offers a stable ride around the local fishing grounds. Accommodating up to four passengers, this boat is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable inshore fishing excursion, including an anchoring system, an ice box for your drinks, a live bait tank, and a range of navigational electronics. Powered by a 150 HP Evinrude E-TEC engine, the boat can reach the best spots quickly, allowing you to spend as much time as possible fishing.

The species you will target depends on the time of year and the conditions on the day, but in general you can expect to target trophy Trout and Redfish, as well as Black Drum and Flounder in the local bays. Both light and heavy tackle and supplied on board.

All the fishing equipment you will need throughout your trip is provided by the captain, including live bait and artificial lures. Captain Mark is also happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip for you to take home. Please make sure you bring a valid Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp with you for the duration of the trip.

Just tell the captain what you want to get out of your trip and the fun will start from there!

I grew up on Baffin Bay an always loved what it had to offer, so I decided to start sharing my passion with other people on my airboat fishing charters.
