Mark Beam

Member since January 2019 Big Pine Key, United States
Background
An avid angler since childhood, Captain Mark "Beamer" Beam can boast of over 50 years of fishing experience. Beamer got into the hunting / fishing business in 1985, going full-time in '89. Since 2011 he's been spending the winter months and most recently June, and parts of September & October in the Keys and started running charters again. Just two years ago he caught 8 Kings over 50 Lbs., and routinely catches Snappers, Mackerel, Cobia, Trout, Sharks, Etc... .
Techniques
I prefer light to medium spinning tackle tactics combined with finesse style bottom fishing & drifting with live and dead bait presentations...
