About Your Trip

Three full 8+ hour days chasing the world's largest Alligator Gar specimens with the guru himself Mark! The three days allows you the opportunity to try multiple different spots to really find the biggest possible Alligator Gar. The trip includes hotel lodging for 2 nights, along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the three days you'll be fishing. You will be in a different hotel from Mark, but his will be close by so you can easily meet up in the mornings to head out. Mark usually doesn't decide which location will be the best until weeks before his trip so arrangements for lodging will have to be ironed out further down the road. Mark says he likes to make the reservations well in advance but 8 months is a little too far out.

Our family went out with Mark last weekend for Father’s Day and had an absolute blast! It was our first time bowfishing and we couldn’t have asked for a better trip. We will definitely be going back
