Anglers Mark

Come experience the peaceful backcountry waters of Amelia Island with Captain Lawrence Piper as your fishing guide on the Anglers Mark, a comfortable bay boat that has plenty of room and is safe for all ages.

We’ll troll the oyster beds and marsh grass while casting for Redfish, Seatrout, Flounder, Drum, Shark and Sheepshead. Captain Piper is easygoing and has the patience of a rock so you and your family are sure to enjoy the day out on the water and take home memories that will last a life time. He’ll provide the bait, tackle, rods, reels, life vests, fishing licenses and a cooler of ice waters – all you really need is a hat and sunglasses! There’s a good chance you will see porpoise, manatees, sea otters and osprey while fishing or sightseeing. Captain Piper will provide professional service to make your visit a memorable experience.

Captain Piper is also a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor and he’s just the guy to help you sharpen your fly casting techniques. You’ll always hear folks say that they’d like to try fly fishing so here’s an easy way for you to introduce your spouse to the sport! For the last couple of years he’s taught in the Life Long Learning program for the local community college and has helped anglers take that step to learning how to fly cast. If you want to take it further, schedule a “tailing Redfish” flooded grass fly fishing expedition in our salt marshes or venture into the Florida swamps off island and fly fish for panfish and bass. Capt. Lawrence Piper and the Anglers Mark is a top-rated guide service on Trip Advisor for Amelia Island.

As a local this is the Captain I want to go fishing with.

This was my 5th time fishing with Captain Lawrence. I have brought both experienced and inexperienced fishermen with me and every time we had a fantastic time. He put us on the fish, was a patient teacher with people new to fishing and genuinely cared about the experience everyone on board was having. Can’t wait for my next trip.

Braggin’ rights!

We had a fun and successful day fishing with Captain Lawrence. Landed a 33.5 inch redfish and a few sea trout and smaller redfish. He’s a thoughtful, knowledgeable, friendly guide. We will definitely book another charter with him in the future!

Awesome thanksgiving fishing trip

This was our second time fishing with our 2kids (age 3). Captain Lawrence made the experience relaxing for us, fun, and educational for all. He was knowledgeable about the area, the types of fish, and he made the kids feel safe and comfortable. He took us to several different spots, we caught a quite a few fish and even a crab!

The Best!

We have been fishing with Capt Piper for many years and it’s always enjoyable. He’s our first choice when we want to fish. He’s the best. Always a great experience and we know we’re in good hands when we’re fishing with him. We have fun plus he’s so knowledgeable and really wants us to be successful.

Great day of backwater fishing!

A great day of fishing for all. Capt Piper came prepared and put us on the fish. We caught our limit of redfish and it was dinner for the rest of the week. I would recommend Capt Piper to anyone - avid fisherman, or even a family with kids. My daughter out fished everyone and was just hoping for a neat boat ride and to see some nature. I have been fishing for 50 years and still had plenty to learn from the Captain.

Book your charter now and look forward to tight lines! Cheers
