Meet Captain Mark Elliott and Gone Fishin’ Sport Fishing Charters

Captain Mark Elliott, with over 50 years of experience in the charter industry, embodies a true angler's spirit. He began his journey as a first mate in 1969, eventually taking the helm as captain in 1979. Throughout his remarkable career, one thing has remained constant – Capt. Mark's unwavering passion and commitment to all those who step aboard his vessel.

He specializes in various fishing techniques, such as deep sea/bottom fishing, bait casting, trolling fishing, jigging, drift boat fishing, heavy tackle, and light tackle.

Together, this father-son duo boasts an impressive 70 years of collective experience navigating the waters of Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. With their combined expertise and unwavering commitment, you can be confident that Capt. Mark and Capt. Mark Jr. will go above and beyond to ensure your fishing adventure is nothing short of unforgettable.
