“Seasoned angler, learning from the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

At some point in their lives every angler wants to land that fish that will become a story for the ages and Mark delivers. This man is a legend and from the time you step foot on Striker-1 you have that feeling that today is the day. I have been on Striker-1 several times and Mark and his crew share their passion and love for the sport not only in their knowledge but also in their personalities. Hands down if fishing is in your soul you will not be disappointed and if you have never fished before Mark and his crew will walk you through becoming a part of the monster fishing crew. This is a must do while you are in Miami! All the Best to Mark, Victor, and Ryan for helping me make great memories!

“We caught a shark! Need I say more?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This guy is a fishing expert through and through. We caught a 7' shark and he made it seem so easy. Worth every penny. Very gracious host.

Keep in mind that this guy is fishing ALL THE TIME. He runs a lot of his business from the boat and Internet is spotty at sea. I suggest finalizing your arrangements via a scheduled phone call rather than email.

“just a couple "master baiter's" from up north”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Should change the name from "mark the shark" to "mark the man." Showed us an absolutely wonderful time, and was a first rate event. Can't wait to get back to MIA, and catch my shark!

“Don't try any other fishing charter, this is the one you need a d want.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Oh my God!!! Talk about getting something you didn't expect to get. I thought I was just going out on another fishing charter. The energy and enthusiasm that Mark and his crew to the fishing experience is amazing. They make you feel at home the minute you walk on board. They handle literally everything for you. If you are ever anywhere near Miami this is the charter you want to hook up with. Trust me don't go anywhere else and don't let the hotel concierge 'steer' you elsewhere.
