Thanks Kris for the great early morning out and for showing us fish at a hard part of the year! My 12 year old son really enjoyed it, and I can't wait to return. Kris is not 'in your face' which is great, and he really knows the area. Highly recommended vs a party boat!

Captain Kris Winkel took us on an outstanding 4 hour charter. First line in the water produced a 35 inch snook! Caught many more snook and even sea trout and he knew all the spots. Highly recommend Tailing Tales. Next time we are in the area we will be booking another trip with Kris. He keeps the lines moving and... More

On May 22, 2014, three of us went out at 7:30am with Captain Kris and caught more fish than we knew what to do with. Everything from a 20lb King fish, Flounder, snapper, White fish, Spanish Mackerel and a Barracuda. We didn't go 10 minutes without having some great battles. Kris knows how to catch the fish that other boats... More

14th May 2014... Went out with Captain Kris Winkel, not knowing quite what to expect. Had been given Kris's number by another skipper who could not accommodate me, as I wanted to pair up with another individual to spread the cost. I had a morning session with him, and we started at 06:30. Catching baitfish on this particular morning was... More

Captain Kris took us out early to catch the bait fish around the sunshine skyway before exploring the shoreline for an array of BIG fish!! We caught some huge trout, snook and flounder. Kris knew exactly where the fish were and how to catch them. He was great with us all day considering we had limited experience. Would 100% recommend... More

Captain Kris is a real pleasure to fish with. First Kris is very professional with great equipment. His 1972 222 Aquasport is well kept, clean, and a dream to fish from. His skill and talent at this sport is the real beauty of the experience. Attention to detail from your first call, to winds, weather, tide, and where and what... More

I've used quite a few fishing guides in Florida over the years but Kris Winkel stands out as one of the very best. I usually take my boys (aged 10 and 14) with me so its important that we se a lot of action with a range of fishing methods and targeting a few types of fish. Captain Kris understood... More

Tailing Tales Charters is the way to go! A lot of one on one instruction and assistance from a very knowledgeable Capt. Kris. Small group and fun fishing! The boat was clean and well maintained. Capt. Kris was very patient and had a great sense of humor, not to mention a very good conservationist! I will definitely recommend Tailing Tales... More
