Controlled Chaos Fishing Charters focuses on putting their clients on the best fishing and strives to make every charter a fun, memorable event for every guest. Captain James Fenn and 1st mate Scott D. have been fishing the waters off South Florida for over 40 years combined and will put you on the fish. They offer everything from family fishing trips to corporate team building events.

The Controlled Chaos is a 35 ft Contender center console boat that can comfortably take up to six guests fishing. This boat is fully rigged for tournament fishing, and you will be able to make use of its outriggers, downriggers, large livewell, and top of the range electronics to see what it feels like to go sportfishing like a pro. Powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki engines, the boat can reach speeds of up to forty knots, taking you to the best fishing spots in no time at all - not that you will need to head out far, with big game pelagics found within a few short miles of the coast!

Captain James Fenn and his crew are experts in a wide variety of fishing techniques, ranging from kite fishing with light tackle and live bait for Sailfish to trolling for Mahi Mahi, Billfish, and Kingfish, as well as wrestling mighty sharks with heavy tackle and bottom fishing for delicious table fare. Captain James takes pride on tailoring every trip to make sure it is what his clients are after, talking through what you want to catch and how you want to catch it, and recommending how much bait and time you will need - although he is happy to head 20 miles out if that is what you want to do.

All Controlled Chaos Fishing Charters trips come inclusive of tackle, gas, ice, water, sodas, and snacks. Just bring yourself, suitable clothing, and a healthy appetite for a great day of fishing!

Captain and mate very professional and knowledgeable. Water was very stirred up but still caught some fish. Ate some great Cobia and Kingfish for three days after the trip. Would definitely book with Captain Fenn in the future. Mate, Scott was great as well.

Overall fishing was slow, buts that’s why its called fishing not catching.  When fishing for the intended species was slow, they changed gears to keep it interesting and put us on a big bull shark.  Good time!
