Background
Captain Chris has fished his entire life heck it's what he does on his days off! He loves to catch fish but more than that he loves to see other people catch fish especially newbies and children. Captain Chris likes to impart his love of saltwater to others in every way possible he is an avid fisherman, diver, boater and just an all out salt water enthusiast. He holds a U.S. Coast Guard 100 ton master license with multiple endorsements and has fished in central America including Honduras, the Bahamas, Haiti, Mexico,and extensively on the Gulf of Mexico as well as the east coast of Florida. Having been a captain in the oil field he has operated in all kinds of weather from hurricanes and tropical storms to northeasters and even been run over by a few water spouts and struck by lightning. His experience makes him a very versatile captain and fisherman, truth is there ain't much out there he hasn't seen or been through. He was even published in the Florida Sportsman magazine at age 6.
Techniques
I am a highly versatile fisherman, I am proficient in many styles of live bait and artificial techniques. My passion is Fishing and I am constantly reading and experimenting with new technology and techniques so That I can be a complete Angler.
