Unbelievable fishing experience, Capt. Mark is native to Port Isabel and South Padre Island, he provided a awesome experience for the entire family. I would strongly recommend booking a fishing trip with Capt. Mark! Put us on the speckled trout, caught a shark, saw sea turtles, Dolphins, even had time for a swimming hole. And...Parrot Eyes restaurant cooked our fish-enchiladas,... More

We went out for an evening fishing trip with Captain Mark Guillot and caught 12 fish! He is a blast to go with. Very personable and helpful to everyone on board. Laguna Bay is so beautiful and watching the sunset while out on it is something will cherish always. Great memories. Don't miss an opportunity to experience this!!

We had a large group (4 adults and 9 kids ages 9 to 15) and Mark arranged for multiple boats. We had a great time and caught lots of fish! The fish was filleted and bagged and we ate about half of it that night back at the houses we were renting.

Have gone out with Captain Mark twice now. Never disappointed. This guy can not only read the waters but he can read the fish. This guy is amazing. A real hard worker who will not let you down. At first I thought this guy was BSing me while just looking at the water then moments later we were hit with... More

We booked our trip with Captain Mark and reported to the Parrot Eyes dock promptly at 7AM for half day charter. Our party of four had been deep sea fishing before but this was first time for bay fishing. We opted for bay fishing this time in hopes of limiting travel time. The first hour of deep sea fishing is... More

My father, husband and eight year old son had a great day fishing with Captain Mark. He kept them out a bit longer because the fish were not biting early on. They caught several fish that were keepers, which made a fabulous dinner. We were able to take the catch to a local restaurant to cook, and several restaurants on... More

My sons and I booked Captain Mark for December 30 but the flu bug hit and we postponed until January 2nd and by then the weather caught the flu, low 40's and windy. We finally left the dock at 11:30 for a morning trip and was back before 2PM with three limits of redfish. (30 minute boat ride each way).... More

We had a great late afternoon fishing trip with Captain Mark Guillot. I would not say this is typical but after 90 minutes we had pulled in 11 Redfish and had we not been cold we would have hit our limit in under 2 hours. Everyone on the boat reeled in at least one fish. I cannot say enough about... More
