Staying in Southold/North Fork during this last week of a very COVID-challenged summer for all of us, I wanted to take our older boys (7 and 9.5) out fishing in the area, the first of such a bay or ocean trip for them. We’ve only done some beginner fishing from shores before. We could not have asked for a better and more enjoyable experience than with Captain Mark and Fish North Fork!! First, we were set for a 7 am start for a half-day fishing charter when the weather turned to rain in the hours before. We discussed with Mark early in the morning, and he kept in regular contact as he was watching the weather closely- he ended up accommodating us by starting hours later (1 pm), when the rain had cleared, certainly setting aside afternoon plans he had. On the comfortable boat, Captain Mark was patient, thoughtful, efficient, responsive to our many novice questions, and he enabled us to cast and reel in many, many catches!!! It was a fabulous afternoon in the beautiful Peconic Bay. He spent extra time explaining to us how to fish, showing us fun fishing adventure pictures and how to prepare filets, and trying hard to take us to many different spots to give us the most complete experience possible. We highly recommend Captain Mark M. and Fish North Fork if you are ever in the area!! Our boys are talking about coming back already.

We were looking for a boat to get out on the water here in late October and we are so glad to have found Captain Mark! Although we did not fish today, since that was not the plan, we had a glorious three hours on the water. Captain Mark told us all about the area, the waters, the fishing, the birding, and then some. While I am sure the really perfect weather helped to make our time together extraordinary, we will definitely look forward to our next opportunity to spend time with Captain Mark on his boat. We can highly recommend - we do this sort of thing a lot. He is laid back but knowledgeable, and very much wants his guests to enjoy their time. Thanks so much, Captain Mark, see you next time.

Captain Mark made my first fishing trip such a fun experience. Not only is he extremely patient, but he genuinely wants guests on his boat to have a successful trip out on the water. His sonar technology ensures the charter is where the fish are, so you'll definitely catch fish, and he explains how to do things based on the fish you're trying to catch. The boat itself was great as well, and we had such a great time out on the water. Super friendly, great boat, caught lots of fish - can't ask for anything better out of a charter out east!!

Capt Mark is the man! We had planned to fish on day that had some rain so Mark was so great about staying in touch and when the weather broke he took us out on the boat. His boat is docked at his house so it was an easy 5 minute drive in Southhold and within minutes of arriving we were on the boat and heading out in the Bay.
Mark pointed out cool spots and landmarks as we set off and throughout our trip. he drove the boat, baited the rods and had a fish detector so he knew wheer to go to find the fish!
there were 4 of us, no one had ever held a fishing pole and all of us ended up fishing and catching fish-porgeys, blue fish-and a lot of them!
It was just fun day! Mark knows the water and weather and all things about fishing and made it s easy . He takes time to get photos and then he filets the fish for you! He filets, packs ices and sent us off with what ended up being our fish feast later that night! (If you have a cooler bring in car to transport the fish!)
He even sent us recipes later in day! He is a great great guy and I will def. call on him next tie I am out there to do it again!

Captain Mark created an amazing 1/2 day charter for my dad, daughter and myself. He was recommended by a local tackle shop. Once called he was very responsive and ask me several questions to understand our needs. On the day of charter he got us right on the fish. More then that he worked all day to ensure we where at the right place with the right gear. We caught several species. At the end he filleted all our fish. It was a great experience with a very passionate captain. Mark is a true north fork gem. If you’re a novice or an experienced angler captain mark can created a great experience ..

Capt. Mark knows the North Fork waters well. (Both in the bays and in the sound).

The boat is very comfortable and easy to fish on. (Extremely seaworthy).

Capt. Mark is a very mellow guy, which makes the trip an extremely pleasurable experience.

Went out with Capt. Mark this past Sunday-very very foggy at 7 AM but not to worry. The boat is extremely well equipped with radar, etc. Perfectly calm waters so we ventured out to sea bass country. Caught our limit of LARGE sea bass during the slack tide. The 4 of us then moved to weak fish territory and also caught our limit-the smallest at 25". Wow, what a day. Mark knows his stuff. When he says drop your line now he means it because there will be fish down below. Thanks for a memorable trip Mark

My friends and I purchased the extended half day fishing trip and it was an amazing experience. Captain Mark helped us bait our rods, made sure we all caught something while he offered a lot of interesting facts about the area and fish along the way. His sense of humor and knowledge of the waters made the trip super enjoyable.
Captain Mark took us by Orient Point into the Long Island Sound and introduced us to a fish we had never heard of before, blackfish. He even suggested how to cook the fish while he filleted it for us. Now that is one of my favorite fish. So tasty!
I can't wait to go out again and do the Full Day Trip!

We used Fish North Fork for around Shelter Island NY. the captain and mate were great. We picked up another couple who were on Shelter Island and spent two hours on the boat. The captain served wine and cheese and we had a wonderful relaxing tip around Shelter island. We would definitely do it again!!!!
