Pensacola Fishing Charters

Chris with his families dinner for the night. It was a slow day on the pond but we still managed to catch and keep a few for dinner.

Hunter Group

Brittany and Chris have been trying to fish with me at Fish Happens Charters for a few years now but have not been able to link up our schedules. Thankfully they scheduled far enough in advance and made it happen. We were scheduled to have the whole Hunter family fishing with me but due to someone not wanting to get up early because…well because teenager happened… it ended up just being Chris. The fishing was a little slow due to the neap tide, lack of tidal flow, but we managed to catch quite an array of fish and only kept enough for him and his family for dinner. We only managed one good photo from the day but it was the only one that counts.

Captain Chris
Born in Pensacola, Florida in 1983, Captain Chris cut his fishing teeth on the bays and backwaters of Pensacola Bay as well as the Alabama and Tensaw River System in south Alabama. When he wasn’t on the baseball diamond he was at home casting rubber plugs into buckets in his parents back yard. Little did he know that all this practice and preparation would undoubtedly prepare him for the career as a Professional Angler. Captain Chris graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University Of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida in 2007. Which he spent much of his early 20′s as a computer programmer while spending all his time and vacation chasing a dream of a Professional Tournament Angler and starting the ultra popular fishing guide service Fish Happens Outdoors based in his hometown of Pensacola, Florida. After much success in local and regional tournaments throughout the early 2000’s, he decided to jump into the world of professional tournament fishing and made a name for himself on the IFA Redfish Tour and the Louisiana Saltwater Series from 2007 to 2010. Finally in 2010 he saw his chance to change careers and pursue a dream. Captain Chris was invited to join the ultra exclusive invitation only tour, the become a full time pro and joined the Academy Sports & Outdoors Professional Redfish Series which was filmed specifically for air on the Sportsman’s Channel. Having success with several top 15 and a top 10 appearances in his rookie year.
