A New Jersey native, Mark has spent most of his life fishing the state from the Delaware Water Gap to Cape May. His affinity for angling began on the piers of Atlantic Highlands, but quickly turned to the lakes and ponds of northern New Jersey in his early teens. Since then, Mark has spent time honing his skills around the country, from the Connecticut River in Vermont to Alabama’s Lake Guntersville. You will occasionally find him standing in the suds on the Jersey Shore or striper fishing on the Hudson, but he’s more likely to be found on Lake Hopatcong.
Mark was first published in the September 2009 issue of the The New Jersey Angler Magazine, which featured his writing on a monthly basis until it closed. He was serving as Associate Products Editor when it ceased publication. Mark is currently the South Jersey Field Editor for The Fisherman magazine and his writing/experience has been used in online and print publications including The Knee Deep Club Monthly Newsletter, Roundvalleyfishing.com, LH Weekly and the Reading Eagle. Mark is currently a member of Lake Hopatcong’s Knee Deep Club.
