Head out with Gar Master Mark for an awesome day of freshwater bowfishing! Alligator Gar are one of the most distinct fish you can find, and Mark is one of the best guides around to help you spear one. His success rate with these exciting monsters is as high as 90 percent!...Read More
These hunts give you opportunities for several TROPHY Alligator Gar as well as many other legal species such as Small and Large Mouth Buffalo, Common Carp, Grass Carp, Tilapia, Shad, and all the other Gar species to name a few. Plus your fish will be prepped for your travel home or to the taxidermist. If you’re just coming for the meat Mark will be happy to clean and bag your filets for you.
On these 6 to 7-hour trips, you and Mark will motor out on Lake Livingston where you'll be bowfishing for trophy-sized Alligator Gar. Learning how to aim can take some getting used to, as the water refracts the position of the fish (Mark will tell you all about it), but in general bowfishing is straightforward, even for beginners; Mark will get you to the prime spots to see some Gar!
All bowfishing packages include equipment (let Mark know if you are a lefty or righty) & fish cleaning. Hunts can be day, night or both. Marks boat holds 8 comfortably, so make sure to bring some good company!
Captain Mark is one of the most experienced Alligator Gar fishing guides in the world, with over 35 years under his belt and caught his first gar at just 11 years old while growing up in Houston, TX along Sims Bayou....Read More
A few years later, Captain Mark was introduced to bow fishing and discovered how exciting bow fishing could be, chasing Gar, Carp, Buffalo, Tilapia, Bullfrogs, and other species. The rest is history!
Mark also runs badass hog hunts with thermal scopes. Join him for a night of hunting that's extremely fun and benefits the local community by removing destructive hogs from the environment.
