Mark & his boys on Striker 1 are the best around, My boys visiting from N.C & myself being a transplant from the northeast, couldn't have had a better time.
These guys take care of everything, just sit back & catch some MONSTERS!!!
Please do yourself a favor & book a trip!!!
Then tell your friends how amazing it was & have them book a trip!
Thanks boys & that crew from Striker 1 I had a great time & planning my next trip.

See u soon!!!

“Great shark fishing experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Mark and his crew did a great job of showing us what offshore fishing was all about. This was my first experience offshore fishing and I was fortunate enough to real in a 8 1/2 foot hammerhead shark. Great experience of a lifetime that will never be forgotten. I would recommend Mark to anyone wanting an offshore fishing adventure.

“Monster Fishing Extravaganza!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

My wife and I went out monster fishing last summer with Mark and his First Mate, Ryan. Both are great guys to talk to while heading out for some serious fishing. The Striker-1 is a great boat, and the monster fishing chair is definitely a thrill!
Unfortunately, the day we went out there were no monsters to be had, however, we did catch a king mackerel and a couple of smaller tuna. We had such a great time heading out with these guys we have planned a return visit to South Florida in the next few weeks specifically around going fishing again with them.

“Fishing Trip of Your Life”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I went out on the open seas with Mark over spring break with some fraternity brothers and it was definitely a highlight of the trip. He and his First Mate, Ryan, are classic Miami guys. They're there to show you a great time. Awesome dudes. We brought on as much food and beer as could fill up their coolers. The fishing was decent that day. A few hefty kingfish and some shark sightings. When there wasn't a bite, we were just chilling on a boat in Miami, having a blast. The Maverick crew are true professionals and really know what they're doing. It was like being on a competition fishing team. I absolutely recommend hitting them up. We will be again very soon!
