My son and I had a great time with Captain Mark.. He is definitely knowledgeable about where to catch fish. We were catching fish as soon as we dropped our line.. Can’t wait to go deep sea with him

Awesome experience! Mark is a great guy and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. We caught some fish, drank a beer, listened to good tunes, and my buddy reeled in a 5 foot shark! It was a very fun day!!!! Highly recommended!
