This guy knows what he's doing. My dad was freshly recovered from a major surgery and wanted to go fishing when he visited me in Tampa. He found Fun Flats Fishing and booked it. My dad always drives the boat and worries about everyone but himself when we fish in our hometown. He didn't have to do anything lie that... More

Honestly, I do not know where to start with my review. I have so many things to compliment. We were on a business trip to Tampa and were lucky enough to get on the water. Our lunch meeting went longer than expected, and Captain Mark was very patient with us showing up late and he was ready to roll when... More

Captain Mark knows his fishing spots and he will put you on the best mix of Reds, Snook, Trout and more...He is an amazing, local flats fisherman and he knows all the spots in Upper Tampa Bay to help you reel in many large fish. Don't be disappointed when he tells you to throw back your catch. He's keeping our... More

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
