Markin’ Fish Charters

Head out for thrilling nearshore and offshore fishing adventure in St. Petersburg, Florida with “Markin’ Fish Charters”! Whether you’re a novice angler or a seasoned expert, the trips are designed to fit your specific goals. You’ll head out with Captain Mark Fewox, a licensed USCG charter captain with nearly 3 decades of experience.

Hop aboard his 34’ Ocean Master center console, known as one of the strongest, best built, and most stable fishing platforms ever made. She’s equipped with top-notch navigational electronics and a T-top for when you need a break from the sun. There’s also a full head in the center console and plenty of deck space to accommodate up to 6 anglers.

You’ll target a variety of Florida fish in the productive waters up to 10 miles offshore. Hook into Blackfin Tuna, Snapper, and King Mackerel in deeper waters, or explore equally fun grounds closer to shore. Here, it’s all about Tripletail, Jack Crevalle, and Spanish Mackerel.

Capt. Mark provides all of your tackle and bait and works tirelessly to get you on the fish. At the end of the day, he’ll even clean and bag your catch – just be sure to bring a cooler for easy transport home. There’s plenty of space in the onboard cooler for any snacks or drinks you bring and there’s bottled water and ice already in there.

Leave your glass bottles, bananas, and black sole shoes at home and pack your non-spray sunscreen to stave off the sun. Experience true Florida fishing with a seasoned pro aboard Markin’ Fish Charters!
