About the Captain

Chris Moody
Ennis, Texas, United States
Member since April 2017
My name is Chris Moody and I'm the owner and operator of Gar Fishing Addiction Guide Service. I'm 45 years old and I have a son that's 19 and a daughter that's 18 years old. I grew up hunting and fishing from an early age. I always had a knack for fishing and hunting. I learned to fish at an early age and it's always been my passion. I have been fishing for Alligator Gar on rod and reel for about 25 years. I've been professionally guiding for around 14 years now. I know where to find big Alligator Gar and catch them. There's only a tiny percentage of Alligator Gar guides in the world with the experience and knowledge of the Alligator Gar that I have. I don't claim to be the best in the world. But I am one of the best in the world. I will put my experience and knowledge to work to put you on a trophy fish. Thanks for reading this and have a blessed day.
