Captain
Chris Barnett

Member since September 2015

Hatteras, United States

Background
Captain Chris was born and raised in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As a third generation waterman, Captain Chris has mated on some of the top boats in the Hatteras fleet for over eight years. Having earned his Captain’s license several years ago, Captain Chris has also operated a commercial boat out of Wanchese, NC during the off seasons. Captain Chris has a huge passion for fishing. His words of encouragement from the bridge will keep the angler going when the battle with a large fish is starting to wear on him/her. Captain Chris loves to fly billfish flags on the way home and throw fish on the dock after a great day on the water. When Captain Chris is not fishing, he is spending time with his wife Kerri and his two children, Sylas and Colbi.
Techniques
We are typically trolling skirted ballyhoo or pulling lures. A typical spread of lures will be 8-10 lines. This spread works great for tuna, dolphin, wahoo, marlin and sailfish. When we run across a school of dolphin, we will quickly pull the lines in and use light tackle drifting with lots of angler participation which gets fast and furious! Occasionally we will stop over some wrecks and other "secret" spots for some high speed vertical jigging or deep dropping for grouper and tile fish.
