We spent a great morning fishing with Capt. Kris, owner of Tailing Tales. He’s the ‘real deal’, fishes all year supplying local markets and knows where to find your catch. Kris started us in a good practice spot. Our hope was to catch enough for a six-person evening feast and we caught most of it during practice: Trout, Flounder, Mackerel,... More

We took our 7 yr old son out for his first fishing charter. We all ended up catching some fish to bring home to enjoy...mackerel and trout. Captain Kris was great with our son too. We saw a manatee, dolphin, shark, tarpon and sting rays. Captain Kris showed us Egmont Island where there were fort ruins from Spanish American War... More

What an amazing day of fishing with Captain Chris. My boys (18 & 21) enjoyed a great day of fishing. We had no time to eat as the action was non stop. Captain Chris took us to four different locations and the fish just kept hitting. We even caught a few sharks one being 2 1/2 long and probably 40... More

We were referred to Captain Kris and boy am I glad he called. he took us out for my son's 13th birthday and he put us on Snook, Redfish and Mackeral. The boys were pulling in fish all day! In the words of my son, "Best Birthday ever dad!" Thanks Captain Kris, that's all this dad could ask for.

Had a great day with Captain Kris he is super fast getting poles ready. Took some awesome wildlife pics. He knows the area well and many different spots to go. We caught quite a few fish and went all over the place. Oh and I never had to bait my pole that was way cool. Thanks for all the fun... More

In addition to being an expert guide in the waters around Anna Maria Island, Sarasota and other fishing grounds, Captain Kris Winkel is an all around hospitable gentleman who makes an outing enjoyable...and he puts you on fish, He's fished these waters since he was a kids and knows all of the coves, channels, and holes. We hooked up on... More

What a wonderful day it was today! First cast was a fish. Not a keeper but still a great start to a great day. Kris is great company. He listens well and is informative when needed. Not to mention always ready with a new pole and bait when a cast goes bad. Spotted trout, redfish, black drum, grouper and tons... More

Hired Capt. Kris for a charter out near Tampa Bay, and I must say his knowledge and expertise is second to none!!! From spot to spot was nearly non stop all day long everything from BIG redfish and Snook, Flounder, Trout and Jacks. We stopped counting fish at 50 and kept going! He was very accommodating to our schedule which... More
