Captain Chris is an extremely professional, humble and knowledgeable guide. I have fished with him several times a year for the past 5 seasons. He has a great sense of humor and makes being on the water a pleasurable experience no matter the conditions. I started as a novice and with his guidance, I became keen on flyfishing. His patience to teach proper fly/spin angling techniques allows clients an advantage when targeting the big 3. This guide has extensive and thorough knowledge of the flats fisheries throughout the FL. Keys, be it backcountry or oceanside. Days spent fishing with Chris make for the most memorable experiences, and trust that he will put you on fish. There are many guides in the keys, but I choose Chris for his demeanor and all-around good person. Book a trip with MudPuppy Charters to experience the best sight fishing in a world-class fishery.

My teen son and I spent a great deal of time researching to get the best guide for a flats fishing trip. We don't have a great deal of experience catching Bonefish, Tarpon or Permit and wanted exposure to all of it. I wanted a guide that could teach, not just show. Flats boats are small/close quarters so it's also important to pick someone who is personable. Chris exceeded my expectations on all accounts, delivered an experience on the flats we will never forget. He's the right choice for any group, most strongly recommended.

You will not find a Captain who works harder to put you on fish or who is more knowledgeable than Chris. If u are looking to sight fish with fly or spinning rods for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, redfish, etc. you won't be happier. Both a serious angler and someone looking to experience flats fishing for the first time will be impressed with the professionalism and enjoyment from a trip with Chris. He is on the water every day that conditions allow and that pays huge dividends for anyone fishing with him. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly...and I have had the opportunity to fish with all skill levels and ages with him. It's a great trip everytime.

My husband and I just finished two 3-day fishing trips with Capt Chris Jones of MudPuppy Charters. It wasn't our first trip and it certainly won't be our last. We have been fishing 1-3 days trips, as well as tournments with Capt Chris for 9 years now and he NEVER DISAPPOINTS us. As a fishing guide he's almost too good to be true. He wants you to catch fish every bit as much as you do. Mind you, if you don't catch any fish, I can almost guarantee it's because of the angler, since Capt Chris always seems to do his job by finding the fish for you.... the rest is up to you; but don't worry, he will walk you through every step towards success if you need it. Aside from knowing the waters and the keys fish like the back of his hand, he has a wonderful personality that will make your trip one you won't forget and will want to repeat as often as possible. Can it get any better? - the answer is yes. he understands the need to protect the environment and conserve the fish population. Check out mudpuppycharters on Instagram and see for yourself. He brings his GoPro with him and you could find yourself and your big catch on his site.
