Capt. Mark Fishing Testimonials
Hey Capt Mark,
Thanks for an awesome Red fishing day. Capt Mark provided some great fishing instruction and the boat and gear are top notch! It was nice getting to know you and knowing that you are a local North Myrtle Beach native. I am booking with Capt Mark again next year for another great red fishing adventure. Your knowledge of the area and fishing expertise are greatly appreciated. Thanks again for sharing a great day of fishing!
Captain Mark sir,
I just wanted to send a email and thank you for another great fishing trip. Timothy had a blast. He had to tell his grandmother all about driving the boat, and the big redfish he caught. As I send this email he is in bed and snoring; to say the least, he had a awesome day, as did I my dad and my wife, Ann. We got back home and he wanted to fish more so we fished in the surf till 4 this evening. Again sir thanks for another great day of memories and fun fishing.
Your friend. Patrick Sheridan
Debbie and I wanted to thank you for a great day on the water and some awesome fishing. I've never seen that many flounder pulled in at one time. We can't wait to hit the water with you again.
We just got back home to Harrisburg,Pa. and wanted to let you know that I had a GREAT day fishing with you on Wed.I'll be sure to tell friends about you and your type of shallow water fishing.
Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the awesome fishing experience. We went out for the afternoon "grass fishing" the rising tide for redfish, and we fished the backwater creeks the following morning on a falling tide, and both were experiences I'll never forget. Fishing the grass in the flats boat is like hunting, and the quality of the the redfish on both trips was amazing. I have fished saltwater, mostly surf-fishing, for years, and had never caught a redfish. After two trips with Shallowminded Capt. Mark Dickson, I'm hooked on redfishing. My first catch was a beautiful 28" red, and he was right where Mark thought he would be. We caught several BIG redfish, a flounder, and black drum. We were very impressed by Mark's knowledge of the waters, tides, fish, etc. He knew where the fish would be, and how to catch them. He truly is an expert in the field, and a great teacher. He made it a great time for everyone. The education we gained during these few hours of fishing will produce fish for years to come. We will certainly be back, and we will fish with Capt Mark again.
Thanks again, and good fishing!
The fishing charter on Sunday morning was the perfect ending to our Spring Break. Alex, Jakob and I were impressed with your knowledge of boats, the local waters ways, wildlife and of course fishing. We were lucky to have such a beautiful day and a patient tour guide. You have a true gift and your willingness to share it with others puts you ahead of the rest.
We give Shallow-Minded Inshore Guide Service 3 thumbs up. :)

About ten years ago, I decided to do some salt water fishing while on our annual vacation at Myrtle Beach. I knew that I wanted to book an inshore fishing charter and was lucky enough to have found Capt Mark's Website, fishmyrtlebeach.com. I've been a repeat customer ever since and have my 2011 trip already on the books. Having fished with Capt Mark every summer over these past ten years, I can assure you that Mark will work hard to put you on the fish. Until I started fishing with Mark, I did not realize the diversity of the fishing in the Myrtle Beach area. Although the redfish are normally the focus of our trips, we have caught Bluefish, Ladyfish, Black Drum, Sheephead , Barracuda, and Flounder as well.
Book a trip with Capt Mark, you'll spend a day on the water with a fun and friendly guide who will do his best to put you on the fish and maybe just create a memory of a lifetime for you.
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!
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.

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.

Dear Mark---Thankyou so much for a great day of fishing and relaxing!!! You really are a true professional--taking our rookie bunch out and making us feel right at home---We all had a wonderful time and I promise to use you 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?

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!
Brenda and Scotty
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.
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.
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.
