Capt. Mark Newton has been a United States Coast Guard-licensed and insured Captain since 1990, providing inshore fishing trips in the Tampa bay area. He operates a 23’ Dorado with a T-top, powered by a single 225HP Mercury engine. The vessel is outfitted with a conventional selection of navigational electronics as well as fish finding equipment, including GPS, Fishfinder, radio, as well as a multimedia system on board for your enjoyment. It can comfortably accommodate parties between one and six fishermen per trip.

Captain Mark offers a no-fish-no-pay guarantee and supplies everything that you’ll need to catch fish on your trip. Mark targets a variety of West Florida inshore game fish, including the notorious Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, Mackerel and many more cruising the area depending on the season. Depending on how much time you have on your hands, the amount of species you’d like to target and a number of fishing spots you’d like to cover, there are 4, 6 and 8-hour trips made available for your consideration.

All fishing equipment will be provided by Captain Newton, complete with live bait. Guests of his 23’ Dorado are free to keep the fish they catch, as long as they don’t violate any of the guidelines regarding bag limits and catch size put forward by the state of Florida. Following your fishing trip, Mark is happy to offer a complimentary cleaning and bagging of your daily catch. Soft drinks and bottled water also made available for your enjoyment.

We had a blast for a bachelor party trip fishing the Tampa flats. The captain was very knowledgeable and helpful and keep us all fighting fish while listening to great tunes and enjoying the local scenery. He recommended that we push back our trip a few hours so the tide would come in more and the water would warm up a bit, and boy did it make a difference! Would highly recommend and will be coming back for more

Captain Mark was great. Very knowledgeable about where to go to get the fish I wanted. We contacted him at the last minute and he was definitely the best choice. If you’re looking for a good trip with great results choose Captain Mark. You won’t be disappointed.
