Background
Capt. Mark Byrnes is a Florida native fishing guide, born in Miami in 1953. He started fishing in the Florida Keys when he was a young child. As soon as he was old enough to drive he was spending weekends fishing day and night on the old rickety wooden catwalks attached to the Keys bridges. He was usually successful in bringing home snapper and grouper for his family to eat. For his own enjoyment he discovered jumping tarpon and the thrill of seeing these monsters explode out of the water. In the 70's and 80's his passion was Offshore Fishing in small center console boats...However, he always liked to explore the Keys flats and backcountry of Florida Bay and the Everglades every chance he got. Slowly but surely he became hooked on the shallow water inshore scene.
Techniques
Capt. Mark Byrnes specializes in Tarpon Fishing...but he also tailors trips to his client's desires and targets bonefish, permit, snook, redfish, trout, snapper and sharks. Captain Mark is very patient with beginners and kids of all ages but also has the skills & intensity to pole the flats & sight-fish with expert casters with spin or fly gear.
