WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT CAPT MARK

6 hours of great bass fishing!!!!!

Mark Shepard
★★★★★
Fishing with Mark Shepard was a truly satisfying experience. We had tough windy condition and still managed to boat 12 bass. Mark was willing to answer any question I threw at him. A true professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to catch some Largemouth Bass in Lake Okeechobee. My biggest was 6.75lbs. Sorry, pictures are on my phone.

What a great day fishing! Captain Mark started out the trip teaching us to use top water poppers; and we killed it! Then we fished using shiners and had good luck with those Overall we had a awesome day of fishing!

Second time out with Mark great guy! Very unusual January weather. Went in am we caught 7 bass 2-6# missed a few. Fish not biting for pretty much everyone that day. Was with Mark in January before caught over 30 with 1-10#. Will be going out again would definitely recommend.
