    We had an awesome day on the water with Captain Mark and First mate Nate. They took time to educate us about sharks, got the entire family involved with tagging, sampling, measuring the sharks to support their research efforts. If you want, they involve in all aspects of the trip. Fish Finder is top notch. Thanks guys.

    We had a group of 6 do an inshore shark fishing trip on 7/3/19. We went out a out a mile and caught around 14 3-4' sharks. Captain Mark and mate Nate did a great job.
