We are happy to introduce you to our hard working 1st mate Chris Kingsley. He grew up fishing in his home waters of Stuart, FL and has been working full-time on charter boats here in the Keys for the last 3 years. He’s patient with all skill levels and is a pretty funny character. When the bite is on he’s pretty intense. If there is a pack of 30 Mahi’s around the boat you can bet he’s trying to put a hook in every single one of them. If you don’t believe me check out some of the videos on the website with 5 fish hooked up at once and him sending out another bait to get the 6th one on.
If it’s summertime and we are running around offshore looking for schools of Mahi Mahi you will often see Captain Rich up in the tower so he can get a birds eye view of where the fish are hiding. This is when having Chris down in the “pit” really makes the day so much more successful. Chris is never just sitting around doing nothing. He’s always busy. Throwing the cast net, rigging ballyhoo, re-tying hooks, catering to the live baits, washing down the boat, these are just a few of the things he’s doing to make the trip better for the customers. Bottom line, he’s organizing the chaos.
When you get on the boat please don’t be afraid to ask questions. We want all of our customers to be hands on in the fishing process. Chris will be glad to teach you anything you want to know. He really wants you to join in on the action and become a better fisherman. At the end of the trip we guarantee you will want to come back again and again.
Please don’t forget to tip your mate.
