Fish Whisperer Charters LLC

4870 Ocean St
Jacksonville FL, United States

Fish Whisperer Charters LLC provide fishing adventures with novice anglers and family quality time in mind, while also catering to experienced anglers. Their mission is simple: “Ensure a memorable and safe experience for all on board, and pay forward what we learn securing the future of the sport and our environment”. Based out of Jacksonville, Florida, the company is owned and operated by Captain Kris Kell, who is a USCG Licensed, fully insured, and seasoned mariner with 24 years experience as a U.S. Navy officer and 15 years of fishing regional waters.

Captain Kris’s boat is a 2016 Pathfinder 2400TRS with a 300HP Yamaha motor. It’s very versatile in that it allows you to get into areas with a couple of feet of water for inshore species, troll with downriggers offshore/nearshore, or fish reefs and wrecks for a variety of species depending on the season. The Minn Kota i-pilot trolling motor enables you to get to places that would otherwise be extremely difficult using an anchor and the mobility is priceless. There are 2 coolers onboard with ice, all required safety equipment including EPIRB, and new tackle consisting mostly of Penn® reels, Uglystick® rods, and Spiderwire®.

Fish Whisperer Charters offers 4, 6 and 8 hour trips that will take you hunting for inshore species, as well as to offshore wrecks. Target species include Redfish, Sea Trout, Flounder, Snapper, Tarpon, Grouper, Sheepshead, Cobia, Kingfish and many more, depending on the season. Trips include the use of all fishing gear, lures and live bait, fishing licenses, catch cleaning and filleting. Capt Kris will also supply you with photos and videos of your day’s catch!

Years of honing his entertainment skills during middle of night watches will ensure a day filled with enjoyment! The idea of these fishing charters reaches further than landing fish, because it is an avenue through which camaraderie is built and memories created. Join Capt Kris, and let him take you on an experience like no other!

About the Captain

Kristopher Kell
Jacksonville, Florida, United States
Member since May 2016
I'm a retired Navy Officer with 24 years of experience on the water and love to pass that experience on to others. For me, fishing was a chance as a child to bond with my father, grandfather, and family friends. Competition, the excitement of pulling up a fish not knowing what it may be sometimes, and spending time with my own family on the water has given me nothing but positive memories. As time went on, I began to feel more gratified by putting other people on fish and teaching them something that would help them create their own memories. Let me be the person that does that for you and you won't be disappointed!

I had SO much fun with you and your family, Ruth! I would gladly fish with anyone in this crew, any day and anytime. My ribs hurt from laughing with you so much…

Fair winds & following seas.

Thanksgiving is always a time when family and friends have a chance to get together and establish incredible memories. It is a passion of mine to ensure that, if you choose to trust me to facilitate those memories, I do just that!
