WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT CAPT MARK

Two fabulous days

Mark Shepard
★★★★★
Thoroughly enjoyed our two days with Captain Mark. We were both total novices with bass. We used artificial worm, fluke, poppers and live bait, under the guidance of a very knowledgeable and patient captain. Caught lots of very decent sized fish and had so much fun. The banter was great and the day went so quickly. Will definitely book again. Thank you so much!

Schedule a morning trip with Capt. Brett and Mark Shepherd filled in for Capt. Brett. I wanted to make sure I put a review on the sight Mark is on. We had an outstanding morning fishing with 3 fish over 5 lbs. I will be planning my next vacation around Captain Mark Shepherd's schedule. He is the real deal and put us on fish within minutes.12/09/2022.

Great Teacher and Guide

Mark Shepard
★★★★★
My son and I came down in late July (not prime time for large mouth) and Captain Mark still put us on some fish. He is an expert guide and captain and is a patient teacher. Captain Mark knows every inch of that lake and was an absolute pleasure to be with. We will be booking a January trip right away.
