Captain Chris will put you on fish and work hard all day to keep you maximizing the fishing experience.  Very knowledgeable about the area and what will work and won’t work.  Will definitely be referring him to friends and will be back on the Fish Stalker II as soon as we can.

We had a great time on the Fin Stalker. The weather wasn’t ideal, but Capt. Chris kept our lines baited and made sure we went home with some fish.

Captain Chris was clearly a professional. From catching all our baitfish with a single cast net throw to nonstop hit after hit from huge sportfish and eaters too—he would be an easy pick for a great time offshore fishing. He also does flyfishing and inshore, which I am sure he excells at as well. You know you are with the right captain when he fishes on his days off! Chris knows fishing and he will put you on fish after fish until you say uncle or your time runs out. Highly recommend, will call him next time in town!
