Fish Whisperer Charters was created with the novice angler and family quality time in mind while also catering to experienced anglers. Our mission is simple: "Ensure a memorable & safe experience for all onboard & pay forward what we learn, securing the future of the sport & our environment."
You will be fishing with the owner and operator, Captain Kris Kell, a USCG licensed, fully insured, and seasoned mariner with 24 years of experience as a U.S. Navy officer. He has fished the Mayport Jetties since 1990 and the Jacksonville regional waters for 18 years. Decades of honing his entertainment skills during middle of night watches/duties in the Navy will certainly make for a fun day on the water! He has more than 20 years of direct experience regarding safety on the water, navigation, and seamanship, so you can rest assured you’ll be in good hands.
The boat you will fish from is a 2020 Sheaffer 240v 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 in creeks, troll offshore/nearshore, or bottom-fish reefs/wrecks for a variety of species depending on the season. The 112lbs thrust trolling motor enables you to get to places that would otherwise be extremely difficult using an anchor and the mobility is priceless. There is a large cooler onboard with ice, all required safety equipment, including a satellite phone and EPIRB, and premium tackle consisting mostly of Penn® and Avet® reels, St. Croix®, Crowder®, and Shakespeare® rods, and Powerpro SS8V2® line.
Trips include the use of all fishing gear, bait, fishing licenses, and fish cleaning with fillets bagged for you. The Captain will also supply you with photos of your day’s adventures. The idea of this fishing charter reaches further than landing fish, though, because it is an avenue through which camaraderie is built and memories are created.
Join Capt. Kris at Fish Whisperer Charters and let him take you on an experience like no other!
