About the Captain

Chris Garner
Orange Beach, Alabama, United States
Member since January 2015
Captain Chris Garner is a Montgomery, Alabama native. He started working on a fuel dock in 1985 when he moved to Orange Beach. John Stewart, one of the local captains introduced Chris to the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico and let him go on commercial trips. His first job as a captain was aboard the Miss Mary IV. And when a few years later Chris met Paul Kell and started working for him as the captain of the High Cotton, they built a great working relationship. In 2012, Chris acquired the High Cotton from the Kell family.

We caught nice King Mackerel in the way out. Captain Chris had us in Red Snapper in no time. We had 16 people fishing and all caught our limit of Red Snapper in no time at all. The biggest weighed around 20 lbs. We also caught around 30 lb Cobia and several Bonita’s on the ride back that had the water boiling with them feeding. Great time for all deck hands professional and always helping. Recommend High Cotton Charters.

Booked full day, captain did eventually put us on fish, but I was looking for all large and he stopped at some not great sites to fill the day and caugh half smaller fish.  Boat was fine, equipment was getting tired and not always easy to reel.
