Captain Chris started fishing at about 8 years old with his Father in the world-famous Mosquito Lagoon. Since a young age, he became very passionate about the sport and the ecosystem that evolves around it. Growing up right on the edge of the Mosquito Lagoon, each day on the water was an opportunity to experience new patterns and trends in the fishery.
With many years of tournament angling and first-mate experience on multiple charter boats, Captain Chris decided to transform his life long passion into a profession by completing schooling to receive his O.U.P.V N.C. 6 Pack Captains License which enables him to share his passion with avid anglers and outdoorsmen from all over the world who come to experience his hometown fishery. He is also representing Temple Fork Outfitters as a Pro-Team member.
He operates all his trips out of an 18' Panga Marine skiff which is versatile enough to run the coastlines for Cobia and Tarpon during the summertime, and to catch tailing redfish on the flats. This skiff handles chop excellently and makes for a comfortable ride for up to 3 clients.
Hadn't checked the fishing schedule and ended up booking on red snapper weekend. Was a super busy weekend for fishing but captain Brad got us set up and out on fish right away. Had great time out on the water and ended up limiting out. Would definitely recommend/go back.
Caught 15 fish, and he was great with my 11 year old son. Everyone had a blast! Captain Chris was the best.
We enjoyed every moment and would definitely go again.
Great guy and he cares about you just as much as fishing. Will definitely be back! Overall good and wholesome guy!
Fun experience catching several fish—about 10-12 inches. Sheepshead, redfish, mangrove snapper. Dolphins were accompanying us for awhile. Chris gave us extra time, helping us look for “the big one.” Captain Chris is very attentive and knowledgeable—always kept us actively fishing. No down time. Beautiful morning. 😊 …
Christian was great! We were having a bit of a difficult time getting on the fish and he took extra time with my son to help him and make sure he caught some fish and had a memorable experience. He made sure we had a great trip!
I had a trip with Chris recently, needless to say he knows where the fish are and how to catch them! If you are looking for a guide service around the NSB area he’s your guy!
Captain Chris is fantastic, he provides high quality tackle and world class fish! He doesn’t waste any time, from the moment I stepped on the boat we searched for fish before actually fishing. The only thing I wish I did differently was give Chris a bigger tip! Will be booking again in the future as he’s the best captain I’ve fished with. …
Capt. Chris very knowledgeable of the water. Capt took us first time fishers out and we caught several large fish.Had great time would do again
