Fish the calm unspoiled waters of Boca Grande, Charlotte Harbor and the Florida Everglades known for the best tarpon and backcountry fishing in Florida.

Captain Mark Bennett, a Florida native, has a lifetime of experience fishing the west coast of Florida. 

A full time fishing guide since 1992.

Tarpon, snook and redfish are just a few of the species that roam the flats, backcountry and beaches off of Florida's southwest coast.






There is no substitute for experience.

For over 28 years I have made a full time living as a fishing guide.  Specializing in light tackle fishing along the west coast of Florida.  I am probably best known for my tarpon fishing charters around the Boca Grande area May through August.  During the spring and fall I fish for tarpon exclusively in the vast backcountry of the Florida Everglades and the Upper Keys .  In the winter months I fish the flats and backcountry of Charlotte Harbor for tarpon and snook.

I have two boats, a 24' custom center console and a 16' Silver King skiff to cover all of the bases.  I do private charters with 1-4 passengers.  All licenses and top notch tackle is provided.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
