A few years later, Captain Mark was introduced to bow fishing and discovered how exciting bow fishing could be chasing all types of gar, carp, buffalo, tilapia, bullfrogs and other species. And the rest is history!
Captain Mark fishes aboard 2 boats featuring large front decks and rear decks. One boat is 20 feet long and 8 feet wide, and the other is 21 feet long and 7 feet wide. One boat can handle 8 shooters and the other can handle up to 6 comfortably. When rod and reel fishing, Captain Mark prefers no more than 5 anglers per boat.
Captain Mark looks forward to sharing his passion with you for an unforgettable time on the water!
