My fishing trips for novice or experienced anglers don't differ too much. After a brief safety orientation we'll head to the backwater, usually no more than a 10-15 minute run, sometimes even less. Normally I will pull up short of where we're going to fish and show you how we bait the hook or jig, and if you're a novice or a little rusty, give you a demonstration of casting then hand the rod over to you for some practice casts while I drop the trolling motor and ease up to the oyster beds or marsh grass.
Most guests elect to do the 1/2 day (four hour) trip. Morning trips usually start around 7-7:30am and we would fish to 11-11:30am. Depending on the tide and time of year, we'll start an afternoon trip around 1, 2 or 3pm.
If you have legal fish to take home when we get back to the dock I'll clean them for you, bag them in Ziplocks and add some ice. That should get you back to your condo or hotel. Bring a cooler if you're traveling.
Speaking of coolers, I have a large cooler on board with ice and waters. Feel free to bring other beverages and snacks. Best scenario is to bring them in bags and we'll transfer it to the cooler on board.
Although The Anglers Mark is a large, 22' Bay boat, there is no bathroom facility on board. However, where ever we're fishing we're only about 10-15 minutes from the nearest boat ramp and restroom. Contact me now to set up your fishing trip!
