Four of us went out with Captn Marc March 9 2021. Caught about 10 species of fish. Kept black drum, sheepshead, gray snapper, whitting, and pompano. We had sooooo much fun catching and releasing many fish. Marc is a very knowledgeable fishing guide not to mention being a great teacher of fishing techniques. Did I mention that he is extremely patient with his clients. We will definitely be fishing with him again.
Winter 2021 - Sarasota, Florida
We have been fishing with Capt. Marc for 4 years and have never had a bad trip. Marc is very passionate about fishing and will do whatever it takes to fill the cooler with fish. Marc is also very patient and helpful with children. My 6 year old son had an absolute blast and caught a ton of fish. I would recommend Fish on Fire to anyone looking for a relaxing, successful and personable day of fishing!

We had a great day with Captain Marc. It was a great experience, he's a nice guy, we caught a lot of fish, saw a couple of dolphins and even went out to a reef in the Golf. Marc also told us where we could take our fish and have them cooked for lunch, it was fantastic. We look forwarding to being with Marc again next year....if not sooner.

Fall 2020 - Sarasota, FL
We had an outstanding day with captain Marc catching King Mackerel, sharks, and Bonita. So good that we booked him again the same week! The second time out we had another stellar day adding several species to our species list. Captain Marc has a new, clean boat with outstanding equipment. The captain, his experience, the vessel, and equipment commands a 5 star rating any day!
Spring 2019 - Stoney Creek, Ontario
This was my second time fishing with Marc and just like the first time, he put us on fish, treated us well, and couldn't have been more accommodating. We asked for something different as we travel down once a year from the Toronto area to escape the cold. HE DELIVERED. We will be heading down once again next spring and I will absolutely be calling Marc and I hope he's available! Thanks again, Marc, always a blast fishing with you.
March 2019 - Sarasota, Fl
2nd trip 1/2 day trip with Capt Marc, went last March, loved it so much we were back for more this March. Had a great time, landed some nice fish and Capt Marc went out of his way to make sure we were on them. We wanted Snook and Mackeral, and we landed about 7 of each between the two of us. Some of the pics are attached. Capt Marc was helpful as usual, on time and with his great boat. He offered to clean our fish for us if we wanted the mackerel, but we were catch and release only because we were on vacation. If you're looking for a great guide that will take care of your group, Capt Marc is for you. We're even hoping to catch him for a Fly fishing trip up in NC this summer.
Well…they say it happens to the very best of them. We had a perfect-storm kind of a fishing day, the odds were clearly stacked against us: a persistent cold front, strong winds, and the general Siesta Key area still at the tail end of its recovery from the red tide. Captain Marc went out of his way to try to find fish for us. I have no idea how many gallons of gas he went through, but we switched spots several times i.e., switched areas that were a good mile or two -at least- apart. We got some limited action to keep it entertaining, a sheepshead and several ladyfish, but we can surely attest to the fact that the limited action that we had wasn’t for a lack of effort on Captain Marc’s side.
It is a lot easier to write a good review when everything goes your way but, as a fisherman who has done his fair share of salt water/deep-sea fishing, I know how it goes sometimes. Captain Marc was very polite and dedicated, and we kept some great conversation going to prove, once again, that a subpar fishing day always beats a good day in the office. Thanks, Captain Marc! We’ll book our fishing with you the next time we swing by Siesta Key!
February 2019 - Sarasota, FL
Fish bite was a bit slow, but Captain Marc kept us on the fish and gave us a great trip. Boat was top notch and the conversation was enjoyable. Will definitely book again when back in the Sarasota ares.

Had a great time fishing with Marc! He had the four of us on fish. Got to see a dolphin and some sting rays too . We would definitely go with him again!
Spring 2018 - Sarasota, Florida
My two boys and I booked a charter with Captain Mark in Sarasota Bay! We had a fantastic time! Captain Mark was amazing! He knew the area so well, and put us on a lot of fish in not so favorable weather conditions. He taught my boys how to fish for the different species that we were targeting, and he made sure that we had a great experience! Truly, memories that will last a life time! We can’t wait to fish with Captain Mark again!
March 2018 - Longboat Key, Florida
My girl and I did a half day trip with Capt Marc. Started out by meeting up in Siesta Key instead of Downtown Sarasota and saved us both some time. He was on time, and the boat looked great. A strong cold front came through a few days earlier and threw off the bite, so we adjusted the plan from original. Started out on some stripped convicts to start the day, and it was perfect to get my girl comfortable with the boat and gear, and we scored about 10-15 along with a nice dolphin encounter which made her even happier. After about an hour, we moved on to find some trout. We had to do some searching, but eventually got into some non stop action. We even managed to get some early Spanish Mack action going scoring a couple of those. In the end, we did catch and release all day as we were on vaca and no intention of bringing them home with us, but we probably added about 25-30 trout to the Sheepies and Macks. Great day overall, I had fun fishing all day and Capt Marc did a great job of keeping my girl happy, fishin and catching all day. Capt Marc even kept us out a bit longer to make up for the longer ride we took to find them. Look forward to booking a snook trip with you soon. Thanks again.
Spring 2018 - Cleveland, Ohio
My six year old son and I took a charter in March of 2018. We are inexperienced anglers but Capt. Marc assured us we would catch fish. The conditions proved difficult, (very windy) but Marc took us to one of his spots where within minutes we were hooking and landing fish. Marc was great with kids and helps us as much or as little as we wanted. His boat and equipment are top notch and he was very professional and responsive during the booking process. I looks like fishing with Capt. Mac will part of our annual Sarasota vacation. Thanks for a great experience!
March 2018 - Hamilton, Ontario
Fantastic experience fishing with Capt. Marc. Had never fished Sarasota area before and Marc put us on fish and couldn't have been more accommodating. I'm back every March and I will definitely be giving him a ring to go catch more fish.
Winter 2018 - Sarasota, FL
Fishing with Captain Marc was great. He put us on many different fish (Trout, sheepshead, perch, etc). Communication was easy and responsive. I mentioned that I flyfish in Connecticut and he brought a fly rod along so I can catch my fist saltwater trout. His boat is new and clean. Overall a great experience with a great guy/guide. I plan to fish with Marc again.
Winter 2017 - Sarasota, Florida
Our experience with Captain Marc was wonderful! We had a great day (6 hours) on his boat fishing all over the bay. We caught 25 total fish, most of which went back but that didn't matter to us as much as the fun we were having. Marc took us all over to his favorite spots and gave us a lot of good conversation. We would definitely use him again the next time we go to Sarasota!
Winter 2017 - Sarasota, Florida
Charted this fishing trip to take my Dad fishing. We had a very good time! Captain Marc was very knowledgeable and experienced. He knew exactly where to take us to catch fish. We will definitely use Captain Marc again!
Fall 2016 - Charlotte Harbor & Cashiers NC
First met Marc in Cashiers NC. Had a great day of fly fishing the trout streams. Found out that Marc spends his winters in Southwest Florida (where I was born & raised) My family is currently living in Ormond Beach on Florida's east coast. I really wanted to take my 14 year old son to the Boca Grande area for some great snook fishing, but it had been years since I'd fished the area. So we hooked up with Marc and had a fantastic day! That's my son in a few of the Charlotte Harbor pictures holding the slob snook! Can't say enough good things about Marc. Looking forward to our next trip in May to look for Tarpon off the beaches.
