About your Captain and Deckhand


Captain Greg Markson

Meet Captain Greg Markson, a life-long Alaskan who  loves to share his passion for fishing.   Greg has been fishing the  Kenai Peninsula all his life along with other remote spots in Alaska.   He bought his first boat at 15 and has been fishing the Cook Inlet ever  since.  


Kyle Smude - Deckhand

Kyle our deckhand lives in both Anchor Point and Kodiak, depending on where the fishing is!   He will make sure you are ready to hook a fish and give you tips how best to bring your catch in.  Kyle is looking forward to his 6th year of deck handing with PoleBenders. 



That's what makes PoleBenders stand out - Greg and Kyle work as a team, making your experience that much more enjoyable.  They will do what they can to get you on the fish, help guide you as you bring it into the boat and make the day as fun as possible.
