What a GREAT family fishing trip!!! Capt Chris AKA Bubba is probably one of the friendliest and accommodating captains we've experienced. We booked a trip for 2 adults and 2 kids (boy-13 & girl-6) for an inshore "catch anything" kind of trip. We told him we were bringing our 6 year old daughter and he brought along his daughter and the two of them had a blast. The kids decided on shark fishing and we were NOT disappointed. We hooked up on some HUGE ones including one that he pulled anchor and chased down with the boat to keep the fish on.
Capt Chris is VERY knowledgeable about the local waters and the fishing and based on the radio chatter, very popular with other charter captains. He provides all bait and equipment, just bring your won drinks, snacks and sunscreen.
Not a boring moment on the trip. Lots of laughs even during slow times between bites. Can't wait to go back. Booked a trip for all of us during our kids spring break April 2016.

Thank Jimmy B

Had an unforgettable cobia fishing trip with Captain Chris. Early morning with a beautiful sunrise to watch as we ran off to a near by reef. We locked up with our first cobia (ruffly forty pounds) before we even secured anchor. Chris not only found the fish but kept us on them all day. at one point we had three hooked up at once with three other forty to fifty pounders swimming around the boat which we were able to hook up with as well. We filled the fish box with quality fish and spent the rest of the day releasing one thirty pounder after another. We actually lost count of how many cobia we hooked up with! Twenty plus was a safe assumption. By far the best cobia fishing experience i have ever had thanks to Chris's knowledge, vessel, and expertise.

We fished on June 6th and had to start late due to bad weather. We left the dock at 8:30 and the menhaden were plentiful. Chris filled both live wells and off we went. The water was a little rough but laid down as the weather moved through. It didn't take long for the first cobia bite after anchoring. we caught 12 cobias and a number of sharks. We all had a great time especially my two grandsons Preston 12 and Carter 8. Another great trip with Captain Chris.

What a great experience. Captain Chris is by far one of the best captains on this island. We were constantly on big Cobia all day (25+)! Not only is Captain Chris experienced in what he does you can tell he has a true passion for fishing. I would highly recommend fishing with him if your looking to have nonstop monster fish action and excitement. We were the envy of every charter boat at the Ross that day. Can't wait to go on another trip. Hopefully before the Cobia run is over!

We had a great cobia fishing trip with capt Chris! After catching some menhaden in the morning we headed off to a reef just off of hilton head. On the way out we stopped by a buoy marker and saw a cobia there, but couldn't get it to bite. But, that didn't last long. Once we got to the reef, We hadn't even finished anchoring up, and there were 3 cobia behind the boat. Over the next hour and a half the bite was on! We all limited out with some awesome cobia. All between 35-45 lbs. thanks capt. This was probably the best charter I've ever had! Capt Chris know where and how to fish.
