Captain Kris took us out on a difficult, hot summer day in July and put us on the fish once again. He got us hooked up with Snook, Mutton Snapper and Flounder. He was paitent and helpful with my kids, teaching as much as chasing fish. We've learned so much on our two trips, we'll be booking a third for... More

My girlfriend and I went fishing with captain Kris and could not have been more impressed. Kris was very welcoming and professional. We went out early and got bait, after Kris put us on the fish immediately. By the end of the day we had caught Grouper, Snook, Trout, Snapper, mackerel, and Jack. The biggest fish of the day was...

Vacationed on Anna Maria Island in late February. Looked at many different fishing charters and decided to use Capt. Kris. We were not disappointed. My wife and I booked a 1/2 day, inshore trip, and had a wonderful time. Conditions were less than favorable, but Capt. Kris was still able to put us on the fish. He was very knowledgeable... More

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.
