Feelin' Fishy Charters Capt. Chris

Captain Chris specializes in sight fishing with fly rods or spin. Join the captain on a Lower Florida Keys adventure of a lifetime in the pristine waters of the Keys. Whether if you want to fish, snorkel, sandbar trips, lobster (when in season) or tiki hop. Chris is an excited, knowledgeable and easy going guide who is going to put in full effort to make your trip the best experience possible.

You will be fishing from a 2019 18’ Beavertail Mosquito powered by a 60hp Suzuki. The boat is very well maintained, has the latest gps electronics, all the necessary USCG safety equipment, has an icebox and a live-well. This boat will get you into spots other boats can’t reach and is sneaky silent while looking for fish. 

While fishing in the backcountry you will be sight casting at fish which is one of the most exciting types of fishing on the planet. There is nothing quite like chasing Permit, bonefish, tarpon or any other fish you may come across on flats and Chris will do his best to set you up with best possible shots. You will be fishing with high quality gear with fly rods from Scott and reels from Hatch Outdoors. For light tackle gear you’ll be equipment with Penn rods and reels.

Don’t worry about having to buy fishing license as all that will be covered. The boat also holds a lobster license for customers if they are wanting to go lobster. Water will be provided by the Captain as well. Please bring food and other drinks you may want on the boat. A good pair of polarized sunglasses is highly recommended as well as rain gear. Sunscreen will be available but the captain suggests you bring your own. Chris holds a USCG Captains license. Also, Feelin’ Fishy Charters is insured and licensed to do charters in the State of Florida.

About the Captain

Chris Wilson
Big Pine Key, Florida, United States
I was born in California and grew up in Colorado. I went to the University of Colorado at Denver and did the desk job life which I quickly found out was not for me. I decided to move to the Keys to pursue my passion of fly fishing and guiding on the flats. I have been an avid fisherman my entire life there is nothing quite like being on the water with friends and family. I love the connection it brings!
