About The Captain
Cortez FL, United States • Member since March 2015
I am originally from Maine, but moved to the Suncoast at an early age. I grew up fishing Sarasota Bay both from shore and in a small john boat my family owned. I owe my determination and love for fishing to my dad who would spend hours silently standing in shallow water casting for whiting and trout. I also employ another phenomenal angler, Capt Eric Chaignet. Captain Eric started out as a deckhand on a local charter, working for years under several outstanding local Captains before taking the step to getting his own Captains license. His knowledge of local waters, and down to earth personality makes a day out on the water with him enjoyable. A fixture on the local tournament circuit, Capt Chris and Capt Eric consistently place on the leader board, most recently winning the 2015 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge. Our understanding of what is under the water, makes our time above the water that much more productive.
