Captain knows his way around the bay. Puts you on fish and makes for a fun day. Recommend you keep your party to 3 as it makes it easier to fish. Captain will do all for you so be concerned if you haven't fished like this before.

I used to fish with Mark over 35years ago and we went to high school together (full disclosure), so it was a great joy to call and book a half day trip to match wits with the scaly creatures of the bay with Captain Mark. The fish had no chance. From a manatee greeting us as the sun rose to... More

We needed a fishing trip that would not result in motion sickness. The water was smooth and the fishing was great. We caught more than we could eat plus all three of us got to fight a big one. Cap Mark was outstanding....very friendly and helpful. He also had great bait and found lots of fish. You will learn something... More

What an absolute perfect day of fishing. Captain Mark can find and catch fish any day of the year. This particular day no one else was catching fish but Captain Mark found the fish. We caught over 50 fish and were done by 1. Everything was supplied, just show up and start reeling in the fish. Already booked our next... More

What a unforgettable experience this was. Captain Mark knew exactly where the fish were and provided the two of us an incredible four hours of nothing but reeling in the line. If the fish were not biting he quickly went to another spot. We went in June for Father's Day and he has not stopped talking about it or showing... More

What a great day of fishing for four guys trying to fowl thier lines together, capt mark didn't let that happen. We hit the trifecta, caught trout, redfish and snook, plenty of each. Every spot we went to we had hits or caught fish. We showed up at the dock with just the clothes on our backs and sandwiches, capt... More

We had a great day of fishing with Captain Mark Newton. He took us right to the fish, had an abundance of great, live fresh bait, and made sure that everyone on board was catching fish and having fun. We caught several snook, (largest was 33"), several large trout, redfish and jack cravelle. We highly recommend him for fishing Tampa... More

Went fishing today with Captain Mark and had an epic day on the water. I am local to tampa and fish the bay frequently. We fish similar areas all the time and never catch fish like we did today. Whether you are from out of town or just want to freshen up your skills, Captain Mark knows where the fish... More

I found Captain Mark (Newton) by Googling "fishing guides Tampa" and finding four excellent customer reviews on TripAdvisor. This is the fifth. I e-mailed Mark to inquire about rates and availability and he replied that evening and called me the next day. I compared his rate to those of some other guides and found they were similar, but I went... More
