Captain Chris has been fishing since he was 4 years old, when his dad started taking him fishing. He has been a licensed captain since he was 22 years old. He was born and raised in the area, and knows all the best fishing grounds. He started doing family fishing trips first and then started doing commercial fishing on the family boat. After all that, he started doing charter fishing trips. The best part of his job is being able to fish every day and share the knowledge with other people. "My dad bought a boat when I was 4. He and my grandfather introduced me to the lifestyle, and it’s a big part of who I am."
