Captain Chris Holleman is a native of Jacksonville Florida and a graduate of the University of North Florida. Chris has been guiding in Jacksonville for the last 20+ years. He grew up here fishing with his father and knows every nook and cranny of the many creeks and waterways of the United States largest city. He is an experienced boat operator and licensed U.S. Coast Guard Captain. 

Blue Cyclone Inland Charters offers family-friendly inshore trips in the St. Johns River, Intracoastal Waterway, tidal creeks and tributaries around Jacksonville. Captain Chris enjoys fishing with beginners and seasoned anglers alike, and kids are always welcome. Capt. Chris will help you experience the many methods and tactics of lite tackle inshore fishing.

You can target Spotted Sea trout, Redfish, Flounder, Tarpon, Striped Bass, Black Bass, and more using artificial lures and live bait on light tackle. Some days, fishing is so good you can catch 10 or more different species.

You'll fish aboard the "Blue Cyclone", a sleek 20' Champion Pro Guide flats boat with a 200hp Mercury ProXS engine that provides a smooth, safe, fast, and dry ride. The boat is equipped with wireless trolling motor, an ice-box to store your fish and drinks, a fishfinder, and a livewell.

Captain Chris will meet you at the agreed upon pickup point ready to go fishing. All rods, reels, tackle, and fishing licenses are provided. Water and a large cooler for your lunch and drinks are provided.
