Mark Malamphy

Member since March 2016

West Ocean City, United States

Background
Capt. Mark was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and was raised in Pasadena. He fished the streams, rivers and tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay from the age of 5, and became increasingly passionate about the outdoors, hunting and fishing, as he grew. While he was at high school, Capt. Mark worked part time on a commercial crabbing boat, pulling pots and culling crabs and becoming ever more fascinated by life on the water. When he was introduced to offshore fishing in his early twenties, Mark was instantly "hooked", and has been fishing the offshore waters and canyons off Ocean City, Maryland, ever since, for 20 years. Brandon and Carter, Mark's teenage sons, accompany him on charter fishing trips, working as mates on the FINATIC. Mark is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and passion for Sportfishing with everyone who comes aboard.

Went fishing on Saturday, June 4, 2016

I had the pleasure of fishing the Mako Mania Tournament aboard the Finatic w/Capt. Mark Malamphy.  Day 1 we fished Washington Canyon & quickly became engaged in mako,hammerhead & dusky shark. In between shark sessions we enjoyed top water mahi on light tackle. What a blast! We ended the day with a large mako @ the boat that really got our blood pumping. Awesome day that was followed up on day 2 with a trip to the Fingers for some action with the tiger & thresher sharks! Overall it was a great 2 day trip w/plenty of action all day long. A big thank you to the Capt. & crew!!
