My wife and I booked a fishing trip for August 2nd and Mark emailed back and said he was full, but could do the 3rd. Contacted him directly and confirmed for the 3rd. We arrived in Port St. Joe all the way from Texas and when we didn't hear from him the day before the scheduled trip, we contacted him.... More

Im sorry you feel like you that you were blown off. I was on my way to Mississippi in fact to pick up my new puppy. I also said that I had others Captains to get you out with, but you were not interested. I always confirm new customers booking that far in advance by requesting a deposit. Checking my... More

Captian Mark was a great guide for this trip, honest and his people skills are second to none. We knew that we would have a somewhat slow day but it went really fast (like his boat). Fresh fish for the evening meal was great. Can't want to go scouting next month with him.

Our family had an amazing trip thanks to Captain Mark Howze as he without a doubt made our vacation great. We booked a morning trip, fishing the bay area, and being novices to large water fishing we were really excited. I talked to Mark the day before and he laid out the trip completely, so we new exactly what to... More

Our family booked a guided beach trip with Captain Mark and it was awesome!!! He was very professional, nice, and lots of fun. Captain Mark took us to the bay, a secluded part of the island and way out in the middle of the ocean. They also climbed sand dunes, went shelling and saw dolphins!!! The kids were nervous at...

Our Skipper Mark was the Best! I don't believe there is a better Captain to be found in this area! First day he took my husband and I out trolling for King and Spanish and as a surprise we caught a dolphin fish! We thoroughly enjoyed the company and music it was like fishing with family! The next day he... More

We had a blast fishing with Captain Mark! We booked a 5 hr. deep sea charter and caught our limit of kings. He creates a fun atmosphere with some good boat music and sets you up to catch some awesome fish. If you want to make some great memories, make sure to give him a call!

We had a great half day trip on June 01, 2015. We went 3 miles off shore and caught three kings, three amberjacks and a huge red snapper. We also had the pleasure of watching a 10 foot hammer head swim up to our boat. Mark is a great guy, entertaining and made our vacation. I highly recommend him!

Our adventure with Captain Mark was more then we could have asked for! We were four novice fisherman just looking for a great open water vacation experience, and we walked away 5 hours later with 16 fish: 6 Spanish Mackerel and the rest Sheephead. We highly recommend his services and if you are looking for some good ol' fishing fun,... More
