This trip is for (1) person that just needs to get out on the water, and get away for a while! While I’m out pre fishing, you can tag along, and just go fish, or talk, and get things off your chest. Sometimes it’s just good to get away, and de stress! No guarantee of catching fish, or cleaning fish. When booking, just select the time you want. I’ll contact you after you book, and we can discuss what you need as far as time and place later.

Captain Chris was fantastic!! From booking to boating, nothing short of amazing. First time tubing and knee boarding for most of us, we couldn’t have done it without captain Chris! We had the best girls day and cannot wait to book again! Thanks so much!

I got the opportunity to spend a day on the water with Chris this past weekend. We fished a tournament together on Cumberland lake me as his Co-angler. It was a wonderful experience and he put me on fish so I was able to place in the tournament. Aside from the fishing, he was a pleasure to be around and learn from. I hope to get the chance to fish with him again. Thanks Capt, Chris, and good luck this weekend.

We sailed with Chris as Captain onboard. Trips with Captain Chris are nothing short of brilliant. To this day, there's no experience like a trip with Caption Chris . I highly recommend him when it comes to fishing and searching for the loveliest beaches.
