Captain Mark Wright

Captain Mark Wright is a lifelong resident of the beautiful and hospitable Mississippi Gulf Coast. He grew up hunting waterfowl and fishing the brackish marsh and bayous of Mississippi and Louisiana and could often be found most summer mornings wade fishing or in pursuit of many species of fish.

The captain previously served 25 years in the Mississippi Army National Guard as a full time technician. After serving two overseas deployments (Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom) in support of the Global War on Terror, Captain Mark retired as a sergeant first class E-7.

Today, he has more than 40 years of fishing and hunting experience. Captain Mark is the weighmaster for the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, "Billed as the largest fishing rodeo in the world," which is held annually on or around the 4th of July weekend. He also competes in numerous local and out-of-state tournaments; including competitive Professional Redfish Tournaments such as the Louisiana Saltwater Series and the IFA Redfish Tour, with multiple top 20 finishes, top 10 finishes, top 5 finishes and two 1st place wins to his credit throughout his tournament career.

Many local coast fisherman and waterfowl hunters rely on his knowledge, and he is always willing to provide helpful tips to anglers and hunters so that they may have successful and fun-filled days outdoors.

Captain Mark is a dedicated husband and father, who cherishes the time he spends with his family more than anything in the world. The pursuit of redfish, speckled trout, and flounder is his lifelong passion, but his true obsession is waterfowl hunting. During the winter months, he and his trusty, old Labrador retriever can be found pursuing various species of ducks and geese that are encountered in the Mississippi flyway. He also loves spending time in the yard playing fetch or hunting in the field with his chocolate Labrador retriever.
