Kris is friendly and knowledgeable. He worked hard work getting us fresh bait, finding secluded locations away from the crowds and positioning us out of the wind. We fished 5 locations and put us on fish in each. In all we caught excess of 60 fish (Snook, Red Fish, Flounder & Speckled Trout). We kept 10 for dinner, paying attention... More

I went fishing yesterday with Captain Kris along with two business associates that had also gone with Capt. Kris last year as well. Like our previous trip, we had a few slower times, but they were followed by periods of multiple hook-ups at the same time, Capt. Kris always gets to the fish due to his many years of experience...

Excellent trip, Captain Kris did an amazing job handling a family of 5 including my 7 year old daughter. We all caught multiple fish and had a overall great outing. We will be back for sure! Highly recommended.

Great day. Started off as fishing ending with just catching :). Good capt. Made sure you always had a pole in your hand that he baited. Your only job was to catch and have fun. Would recommend to anyone

My son, brother, and me thoroughly enjoyed the fishing trip with Capt. Kris. We caught dozens of drum, snapper, and other fish not far from the pick-up location. We had fish on all morning and he made the whole trip enjoyable. Kris even cleaned some of the 'keepers', which we grilled that evening. Awesome trip. We are planning on going... More

We had a great day, made possible by Capt Kris and Tailing Tales Charter. Not only did we catch fish the whole morning, we caught some huge ones! A 35 lb Black Drum and a 7lb Sheepshead were starts of the day, with many many more. And the icing on the cake was that Capt Kris baited every one of... More

Captain Chris was ready to roll when we arrived, it was on and out. He had us in fish in 15 minutes. We absolutely abused some Sheephead to the point we were throwing them back as it was all we wanted to keep within the hour. Then he moved us for a little "fun" and we were into Redfish, Grouper...
