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

Started planning a day fishing with Captain Mark Guillot a week or two before heading to South Padre Island. He was free for the week and offered to play the weather which was very kind. As it turned out, between days of 35+ mph winds and two of rain the conditions did not allow until the last day of our... More

We scheduled our trip and despite the very windy conditions, the captain assured us it would be ok to go out anyways. After 5 hours with virtually no bites (we caught a couple of catfish) and fighting the wind, it was over and we went in. We were told we would get a discount and it amounted to $75 off... More

My boys and I had a great day of fishing with Capt. Mark. From the original request to book the trip Capt. Mark was prepared to make our trip a success. He is a friendly and knowledgeable guide that will go out of his way to make sure your trip is fun for all. We started our trip fishing for... More
