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.

Our NEW boat, is a 2016 Pathfinder 2400TRS with a 300HP Yamaha motor. It’s very versatile in that it allows us to get into areas with a couple of feet of water for redfish, seatrout, and flounder, troll w/downriggers offshore/nearshore, or fish reefs/wrecks for a variety of species depending on the season. The Minn Kota i-pilot 36vdc/112lbs thrust trolling motor enables us 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 new required safety equipment, and new tackle consisting mostly of Penn® reels, Uglystick® rods, and Spiderwire® Invisibraid.

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 more, depending on the season. Trips include the use of all fishing gear, lures and live bait, fishing licenses, catch cleaning and filleting, as well as snacks. 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 entertainment! 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!

Captain Kris was awesome! He was a wealth of knowledge and loves what he does. I’ve fished the Midwest often but never saltwater. It was a great experience and I plan to hire him again in the future.  My wife got this for me as a Christmas gift and it was yet another reminder that I married-up.

We had a great trip with Captain Kris!  His boat was clean and new, he had a great variety of live bait, and he was very knowledgeable about fishing.  We caught a bunch of sheepshead and trout.  Compared to other charters I have done out of Mayport, this was the best!  We even caught a big red we released due to it’s size.  Great trip!

Superb day on the water with you and your son, Randy! Couldn’t have asked for a better crew and I want to thank you for fishing with me. Great job learning the techniques and I hope you enjoy your fillets.
