Captain Chris was awesome we had an excellent time fishing on his boat. Our morning trip got cancelled due to some engine issues from another captain and Captain Chris was kind enough to book us for an afternoon trip last minute. As it turned out this worked out for the better! He had us on a snapper within the first... More

Went out for a half day fishing charter with Captain Chris. We picked him randomly and hit the jackpot!! He's a professional, class-act Captain who put us on the fish right away! He kept the action going the whole time and never disappointed. Truly a pleasure and exceeded our bucket list expectations. Highly recommend time on the water with Captain... More

Capt Chris is an awesome fishing guide, he works really hard to make your time on the water enjoyable and fun for all aboard. I brought my wife and 11 year old daughter along for there first fishing charter. They were both nervous but Capt Chris immediately put them at ease and had my 11 year old daughter catching fish...

I booked a trip with Captain Chris based on a recommendation from JR Waits, the best fishing guide in Charleston, SC. He was willing to work with me even though I was alone, and the weather was terrible. We were scheduled for ocean fishing for a full day trip, but the wind was 35-45 mph and the waves 4-6 ft....

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

Thanks a bunch for the kind words John, I remember that day well, I figured when you guys wanted to use your bait casters it would be a tangle fest but y'all were catching 2 at a time for hours! Was a fun day, nice to meet you and thanks for the business and the review it definitely helps! 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.
