    Bad weather plagued our trip. A big fog bank rolled in on us. Caught a few but it could have been better. I saw no other boats catching fish either. Chris knows his stuff and I'm booking a Tarpon trip with him next month.

    Christopher was an excellent captain and fishing guide who gave me and my buddy a memorable trip across tampa bay! We caught many shark, and other fish at our stops. If you’re anywhere near the Tampa area it’s worth the drive and Captain Christopher will make the experience a life long memory!

    What a great experience! I booked this trip for my husband, my son (12), and myself. Captin Chris was very knowledgeable, had some great spots for us to fish and my son had a shark on in the first 5 minutes of our fishing trip. We all had a great time, caught shark, snook, catfish, and a stingray. Cap. Chris told us about “The Friendly Fisherman” restaurant that wasn’t too far, we took our fish there and had a feast. We will book with Captain Chris on our next visit to Tampa

    This was our 3rd trip with Chris that week. While all were memorable, this one ranks with a lifetime best. You can't control the fish, and as always, Chris put in maximum effort. However, on this day, the fish cooperated. My son landed a 45 pound Cobia, we had a couple large Mutton Snappers, a pair of King Mackerels, and a bonus Amberjack. Simply amazing day! I can't wait until our next trip! Already making plans...

    Chris was awesome we did an inshore fishing trip and caught a bunch of hammer head sharks and catfish!! Lots of fun, definitely recommend, really nice guy.

    This is my 2nd of 3 booked charters with Chris. This one was special. 3 generations on a fishing/swimming/snorkeling fun trip. This man was so patient and enthusiastic with my grandchildren. As I am tucking them in to bed tonight, they want to know when we can do that again! He got special mention in their bedtime prayers... I have no idea how Chris can manage this level of energy day in and day out. Hands down, the best guide I have ever booked.

    We just got back prior to me writing this. Captain Chris, hands down is the best guide I have booked with. He is professional, positive, and driven. He worked incredibly hard to put us on fish, and stayed later than he would have been required. He is very knowledgeable. I am thrilled we have two more days booked this week.

    Captain Chris was great. He showed up on time answered any questions my wife and I had before the trip. I caught my first shark and snook with him as our captain. He shared good stories and we had a great time.

    Peng Y. with Christopher T. of Tampa, Florida

    Simply outstanding. We went out in challenging weather conditions (25+ MPH wind) - Chris put in the effort to make the trip a success. Highly recommended.
