I’m from the Pacific Northwest and love Salmon fishing, so naturally I wanted to try out another fish that could take line and run with it. We found Captain Chris on Tripadvisor as the highest rated guide on the island. Knowing Tarpon fishing to be hit or miss, we wanted somebody who could really get us on the fish. In a half-day, we hooked into 11 fish, landing 5 (2 were over 100 lb threshold). As we fished, boats would start to congregate around us. We were fighting 2 fish at once, and all day we only saw one other boat with a fish hooked. That’s 11 hooked for our group of 3, and well over a… Read more
My wife and I went tarpon fishing with Captain Chris for the second time and were not disappointed. I managed to land my largest fish ever, an approximately 180 lb tarpon. As a very avid fisherman, I realize that in many cases the difference between hooking these very particular fish and just watching them roll is very subtle and not luck. Chris is outstanding at dissecting these tiny details such as how deep the fish are feeding, making sure the crabs don’t drag and putting super accurate casts right where they need to be (which isn’t always obvious). We were in a very crowded area with close… Read more
I finally after many years of hearing about the tarpon fishing in Boca Grande went there. I found Captain Chris online and I must say he was a excellent guide. He clearly knows his business of locating fish. I also really liked how he communicated once the fish was hooked letting you know how to fight these fish effectively. When I return he will be my guide . He’s the man !!
Captain Chris was awesome. He knows how to put you on some big fish. We caught over 25 fish. It was a great day!
We had an absolute blast reeling in snook after snook and a monster red the 1st day of the charter, we booked one for the next day too. Caught a monster triple tail plus much more! Definitely a good choice booking this guy, he knows where the fish are and how to get em in the boat!
First I will apologize for the long review but I already left out so much. Took my 16 year old son down to Boca and had 3 days chartered with Capt. Chris. Went out 6/27/2017 and started with Tarpon. Got in a group just near the beach but they were being shadowed by a Hammerhead. Capt. Chris made a move to another area and we hooked up. My sons first Tarpon! Just seeing his face light up made the trip. Another boat in the area even took a picture and texted it to Capt. Chris. We could have stopped there and I would have been happy. Next was giant Snook. Capt. Chris worked hard to net Mull… Read more
We were visiting Fla from Nh and called Chris to book a trip with my son and wife last minute. He was booked but was able to fit us in. He put us on fish the whole time. Plenty of bait new tackle and really catered to us to make it a fantastic charter. If your in that area I certainly would recommend using Reel Intense charters. Captain Chris knows where the fish are and knows how to fish.
Definitely the best fishing charter I have ever been on! Chris is the definitely the man you need to get in contact with if you want to have a great day on the water along with catching some big fish! Caught a bunch of snapper along with a Goliath Grouper. Whether you fish a lot or have never been fishing before, Chris will make sure you have a great trip. If you’re skeptical about deciding on a certain trip to pick, I highly recommend calling up Chris and booking a charter, I know I will be next time I am down in the area!
What a great family experience that will last a lifetime. We started out the day with Captain Chris taking us just offshore of Boca and finding a couple of pods of Tarpon. My son hit the first one of the day. After a few hours the storms came in around us but Captain Chris encouraged us to stay out and I’m glad he did. We went into the bay and ended up being one of only three boats out there. We had multiple pods of Tarpon all around the boat. Captain Chris helped us cast right into the pod and we started raking them in. It was fun seeing the adrenaline flow as we each caught Tarpon. We have s… Read more
Caught a great 140 pound Tarpon! Captain Chris was very knowledgeable and helpful when it came time to reel in… 6 hours was long but the fish were worth it.
