We had a great time spending 2 days on the water with Marc. Both days he went above and beyond to put us on the fish with both fly and spin tackle. Being new to the area Capt. Marc made us feel right at home and we are already looking at dates for our next trip!

Captain Marc guided me in the flats area around Boca Grande over the course of a few days.  Not only did he take me to beautiful areas, but he knew where to take me to find fish, and lots of them.  We caught plenty of snook of all sizes, giant redfish, a plethora of sea trout and scatterings of flounder, snapper, jack and lady fish.  He made his decisions on where to fish based on the winds, weather, tides, and approach of the boat on the flats.  It wasn’t just a guessing game.  Not only was the fishing good, but Marc is a joy to be around, which is a good thing when you are on a boat with someone all day!  Speaking of his boat, it is top notch, can get you where you want to go, the shallowest of flats, and his gear is nothing but the best.  Without hesitation, I would recommend captain Marc for a fishing trip of any kind.  He will take you to the fish!

If you want a great fishing experience, nothing compares with a day on the Gulf with Captain Marc Laurin. There may be less costly charters…But none better.
He provides a truly WORLD CLASS fishing experience, and I highly recommend him and the FISH ON FIRE Charter Fishing.
