Captain
Mark Malamphy

Member since March 2016 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.
Techniques
Trolling / chunking offshore canyons and structure. Day time and overnight trips available. Yellowfin tuna, Bigeye tuna, Bluefin tuna, White Marlin, Blue Marlin, Mahi, Wahoo, Mako Shark, Thresher Shark
