Captain Chris was very knowledgable about the area. Even though it was very windy and not the time to be out in the ocean, he managed to find a good place to fish in the gulf. We found a sweet spot and kept pulling in the fish.

My buddy and I are bay fishermen from Texas, and we really were looking forward to reef fishing in the Florida Keys. After being on Marathon Key for three days of blustery windy weather, it looked like it would clear just in time for the half day charter we had booked with Capt. Chris Morrison. BUT, when I called Chris... More

After 5 straight days of rain we finally had a good day of weather. Chris took us on the bay side because the ocean side was still stirred up. He showed us the pump and reel tactic and we started catching fish almost non stop for the next 3 hours. Most were the Mackerel but we also got enough snapper... More

We went out on a half day trip with Chris and had a great time. Caught a bunch of snapper and spanish mackerel, a couple of sharks and a ramora. Chris was patient and despite our inexperience made us feel comfortable. He cleaned our fish at the end and we had a couple of fantastic meals off our catch.

Capt. Chris made a bad day fantastic! The rain never came and the Bay was calm. The ultimate professional with all details covered. Even our teen guest with no fishing experience caught a nice size fish after instruction from Chris. Thanks Chris for an enjoyable half day. We will definitely be back soon.

Chris is a real professional fisherman. He has been in the business almost all his life and his experience shows when you want to catch fish. We chartered his boat for 2 days and we were very happy with all the fish we caught. He is highly energetic and the fishing most of the time was non-stop. Large variety of... More

If you want the best who knows where the fish are, definitely go with Chris Morrison! Just went out today, and caught a trophy dolphin (4 1/2 feet), a triple tail, and a few more large dolphin! Chris showed us some large sea turtles while we were out because I told him I wanted to see one. An overall amazing... More

My wife and I had a great time on the 3/4 day fishing trip that we booked with Captain Chris. It was my wife's first time fishing and with the help of Eric (the first mate) and Chris, she felt very comfortable. Chris is very professional and constantly moved until we found the fish. We caught so many mahi and... More
