About the Captain

Mark Anderson
Old Saybrook, Connecticut, United States
Member since May 2016
I have been fishing Long Island Sound and the surrounding waters for the past 35 years. I am a U.S.C.G. licensed charter captain and have been co-owner/operator of Kingfisher Charters with my brother for the past 15 years. A life-long fisherman, my extensive experience includes catching local inshore species (Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Sea Bass, Scup, and Blackfish), offshore species (Tuna, Shark, Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, and Wahoo), and fish from the waters of the Caribbean and Central America (Tarpon, Snook, Sailfish, Grouper, Snapper, Barracuda and many others).
