Booked a half day with Captain Kris with my son and father in-law. Captain Kris did a great job accommodating our varied fishing abilities and finding fish for us this late in the season. I would definitely use Captain Kris again.

We Just finished up our third charter with Capt. Kris, and it was another amazing one for the books. Capt. Kris works his butt off to put you on the fish and is extremely accommodating. I've been on many other fishing charters and Capt. Kris...More

The day of fishing with Capt. Kris was great. We caught sheepshead, sailors choice, jack, redfish, snook, and some snapper. Kris was very knowledgeable and made it a great experience. I would recommend Tailing Tales to anyone!
