Captain Mark - Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Trip Testimonials

Capt. Mark,

I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandmother's passing. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

I wanted to thank you again for the great time that my dad and I had while fishing with you back in October. I think about that trip often, and while the conditions weren't great that day and we caught only a few fish, my dad and I both had a blast because we learned so much from you. Thanks for being so open to sharing your knowledge and for answering all of our many questions. I hope that we can come down and fish with you again soon, but in the meantime, I enjoy living vicariously through your fishing reports :) Keep up the good work and save one for me to catch!

Hi Mark,

Just a note to let you know how well Susan enjoyed her birthday charter. We really appreciate your efforts today. The weather was perfect and the bite was spot on. A beautiful trout, one flounder and 8 great reds! What a day... Thanks again.

Captain Mark,

I wanted to thank you again for taking Matthew, Nicholas and me out on Monday morning. They are still talking about the fishing today with their friends back in Richmond, VA. In fact, so am I and like I told you on the boat, I would recommend you to anyone, especially those with kids. You were great and I truly appreciate your patience with Nick. We had a great time and look forward to seeing you again in the summer if I can convince my wife to go to the beach again. Thanks again for a great experience.

Thank you & have a great day!

Dear Captain Mark,

A belated thanks to you and Captain Greg for a wonderful fishing trip. We had a memorable time. It's obvious that you both are highly knowledgeable about the local fishing scene, love fishing, and know how to tailor the experience to suit younger children. Aaron is still talking about "the big one". We will definitely be calling you the next time we are in Myrtle Beach.

Thanks again!!!!

I would just like to let everyone know a little about Capt. Mark Dickson.  I first met him over 10 years ago fishing the SKA Tournament Circuit.  Even then he was especially attentive and soaked up any information that might make him a better fisherman and improve his catches.

Several years ago he moved back home to the North Myrtle Beach area and made the decision to concentrate on guiding the inshore and nearshore waters.  He quickly added to the knowledge he had gathered from years of fishing with his family and became the premiere inshore/nearshore guide in his area.  I featured him in an article on the area several years ago and we are currently scheduling another.

Capt. Dickson knows the fishing in his area better than anyone else and strives to provide every client a great time on the water.  Even better than that, he is a personable young man and is fun to fish with.  When someone calls me for a guide reference in the North Myrtle Beach area, he is the fisherman I suggest.

In addition to the information here, Capt. Dickson is featured monthly as he provides his area’s monthly Fishing Forecast for North Carolina Sportsman Magazine.  If you want to know what is happening in the area, check out the magazine, look here, or give him a call.

Taking a fishing trip with Capt. Dickson is something you will repeat once you do it the first time.  You will be in great company, catch fish, and have a good time.  What more could you ask for? 

Good Fishing,

Capt. Jerry Dilsaver

Captain Mark,

Just wanted to thank you again for the great time Scotty and I had on Tuesday, August 3. We had a great time! We will be talking about our adventure until we come down next year.

Look for us next July!

Happy Fishing!

Brenda and Scotty

Captain Mark,

I just want to tell you that we had a great time fishing with you on July 15. My son and nephew were really excited and it was worth every penny. We grilled the Spanish mackerel and flounder and they were great. The question we want to know is did you catch that cobia that got away? We are definitely going to book another trip next July. Have a great year and
I will keep checking the reports. I also attached some pictures that you can
feel free to use on your website.

Captain Dickson,
    Cheryl, Logan and I want to thank you once again for an awesome experience!  Your boat-handling skills, knowledge and patience are second to none and you made us feel relax and welcome, which made the experience all the more enjoyable.  We eagerly look forward to future charter adventures with you. Thanks!

Just wanted to drop you a note to tell what a great time Jackie and I had with you.  I know you normally aren't hunting for sharks, but we enjoyed it thoroughly.  We hope to make it a yearly trip, if so you will hear from us next March.  And your tip about the Bonefish Grill was awesome.  Great food and service!  Thanks again.

I thought I'd take another moment of your time to thank you once again for the experience you gave us last Tuesday. Dan, Mike and I have spent several hours talking about the trip and how much we enjoyed it. Catching seven different species, including red and black drum, bluefish, spade fish, ladyfish and of course Mike's cobia, far exceeded any expectations I had for this charter. Our family plans on a Myrtle Beach vacation again next year and I will look forward to fishing with you again. Thanks for a memorial trip.

Shallowminded-Capt.Mark Dickson is second to none when it comes to Myrtle Beach inshore fishing.Mark guided us to some huge tackle busting Redfish,not to mention Flounder in the 6 pound range.This personable guide not only has the uncanny ability to put you on the fish, but can turn this brackish water estuary into a virtual classroom of learning experiences.His
years spent plying these waters since boyhood translates into a wealth of "on-the-water"expertise.I highly recommend him to all of my clients that are thinking about visiting Myrtle Beach.

It is the total fishing experience with Capt. Mark that we keep coming back for.

Chip Newman

Thank you for the unforgetful experience that we had fishing with you for Redfish.It is not everyday that you come across someone with the knowledge you have about the backwaters in your area.Your patience with my son is to be commended, we both know he is a handfull. He speaks of you and our trip often and we will certainly be back to fish with you again soon.

Thanks for presenting a very informative seminar on Flounder fishing. Our club members really enjoyed it.I know I picked up several tricks, which I plan on using at our upcoming Flounder tournament.If you ever need anything from our club just let us know.

Mark, Thanks for a great day on the water today. I not only had a great time fishing with you, but learned a tremendous amount. I was very impressed with your knowledge of fishing technique and the local waters. I caught more Red Drum and Flounder today than I thought possible. I look forward to our next adventure.
