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!

We had a great time fishing with Captain Kris! He put us on the fish right away and helped everyone on the boat catch a ton of fish. The snook fishing was amazing! He is patient with beginners and very informative to those who have more fishing experience. Great experience and would recommend highly!

Excellent Fishing Action! My 17 year old son and I booked a half day with Captain Kris and it was worth every penny. Within 10 minutes of arriving on the flats we were catching fish and crushed it for the next 4 hours-If you want to catch fish go with Captain Kris and Tailing Tales Charter...

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...

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
