About Your Guide

Captain Mark Malfa 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.

A few years later, 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! Mark looks forward to sharing his passion with you for an unforgettable time on the water.

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
