We have fished with Captain Mark Guillot for several years during our annual beach vacation. We have a big group (3 adults and 9 kids) and he does as great a job helping and encouraging the kids as he does putting us on fish. This year the boats in our group split - some going out for Kingfish and some... More

Capt. Mark was awesome. My wife and our two kids (10 and 8) chartered Capt Mark for a five hour bay fishing trip. It was awesome. We left and had a great boat ride out to get bait. Our boys enjoyed riding behind Capt Mark watching him steer the boat. We got our bait and headed to our fishing spot.... More

This was my family's second time chartering Capt. Mark Guillot's boat for a bay fishing trip. We chose the morning time, which was great because it wasn't too hot in the day yet. We started off by going to a shrimp boat for bait. It was a nice ride out there and the fishermen let us on the boat and... More

6 of us went out for 5 hour charter w/ Mark Guillot. HIs boat was very comfortable and allowed us plenty of room. We had a mixed group in terms of fishing experience and Mark accommodated all of us very well. We caught about 18 sea trout which fed us nicely for two nights! Mark also took us to a... More

My wife and I had a great bay fishing experience, thanks to Captain Mark Guillot. We had never fished Laguna Madre bay off South Padre Island and were eager to get out on the water with an expert guide. We were fortunate we met Capt. Mark! We connected with him based on the many positive reviews we read about him.... More

Winter fishing with not the best weather Capt. Mark worked hard to get us on active fish. We had 4 people in the boat and he worked to keep us all in the water for as much time possible. We ended up with a dozen keepers. Strongly recommend the guide and a good check of the forecast

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.
