Photo of Mark Youngbloood with his labradior retriever My name is Mark Youngblood and I have been fishing the rivers and coast of Washington for more than 20 years. I caught my first steelhead in 1994 and at that point I knew I was hooked forever! Operating a full time fishing charter service is my dream come true. I pride myself in operating a safe boat and providing quality gear to ensure a fun fishing experience for you. Whether we are chasing steelhead in the local rivers, sturgeon on the lower Columbia or offshore for tuna, I’ll provide you with a memorable experience that you’ll want to share with family and friends. Join me for a day of fishing and fun. I look forward to being your Captain!

"I fish more than 50 days per year aboard other skippers’ recreational boats. My preferred time on the water is with Mark Youngblood. Mark is by far the most safety minded in my pool of skippers. Mark chooses safe, comfortable and well maintained vessels and his gear is kept in pristine condition. I can honestly say Mark finds fish. And when he does, he keeps them biting. Fishing with Mark, I have experienced the most mind-blowing albacore live-bait stops nearly every trip. When I go fishing with Mark, I come home with full coolers and sore arms."

During the past few years I have frequently fished with Mark Youngblood. From Neah Bay, to Ilwaco, Wa and the Columbia River, we have targeted and successfully landed many species that migrate or reside in the Pacific Northwest. On Marks boat, safety and crew comfort is always a priority. I am a 72 year old with chronic lower back pain. It is almost embarrassing to often hear Mark inquire: “You OK." However, I do appreciate his concern about my well being. Preparation is one of Marks many strong points. Depending on the species targeted, ocean temperature breaks, chlorophyll areas, weather forecasts, wave height, tides, currents, etc are usually analyzed to develop a strategy. Terminal equipment and gear are of the highest quality and well maintained. (love those electric reels when fishing for Halibut) I can not say enough about his special attention to detail and providing top of the line equipment. Mark works very hard to put his crew on fish. Having a platinum experience on the water is what Mark strives to provide. I keep coming back. Be safe, have fun, catch fish.

Mark Youngblood's sport fishing is the best 6 pack boat in Ilwaco, WA. I am lucky enough to fish with him several times a year and every time it has been an unforgettable experience. His passion, diligence, and experience show in every aspect of his operation. His knowledge of the ocean and where to find fish are unmatched. This is not a boat ride, this is world class fishing with limits being the norm.…be prepared to wrestle with some fish.
