What Our Clients Say


After years of never catching a legal striper, my daughter and I , along with two friends, chartered Captain Mark to guide us to the promised land. Boy, did he deliver! For last two years we have landed the big ones. Captain Mark is low key, lots of fun, and a great fisherman. For any New Englanders reading this, think Charlie Moore only funnier and better. See today’s thirty pounder caught by my lovely daughter with Captain Mark.  - Papa Bear 1947




Captain Mark is the best! ! I have been catching keepers with North Shore Charters for over 20 years ! The trips to the Bahamas are legendary !
