March 2015 Update

 In Blog, News

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a splendid winter like Janell and I did. The weather here in Pensacola wasn’t as bad as it could be, or even as bad as some of you had it. We did have some seriously cold times. Basically, the entire month of January and half the month of February were crazy cold to us Floridians but we got over it quick. The temps now are up to the 70’s and rising every day making the fishing better and better every day.

Janell and I have been saving for quite some time to finally take a honeymoon and as of December, 2014 we booked it! We are super excited since we have been married for almost two years now. Anyway, we decided to go to Alaska. We are going to spend some time in Seattle, WA, then Vancouver, BC, then hop a giant boat (a cruise ship) that I will inevitably try to drive and sail north to Alaska for seven days. Then end our cruise in Seward to do some Halibut fishing for a few days and enjoy the 4th of July there in Alaska only to fly home two days later. Did I mention we are excited?

Lately, we have been working our butts off and trying to save up to buy a new house. Hopefully we can do that next year. I’m in desperate need for a home office and a fishing/hunting room. I seem to accumulate things and my wife thinks I don’t need them but I beg to differ. Oh, we did just get back from Disney that was a hoot. I could do without Hollywood Studios but everything else was a blast. Anyway, I can’t wait to see everyone this year when you come down to fish. I think you will like my new boat and the weather is splendid.

Tight Lines,

Chris

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.

Captain Chris is always evolving as an angler and business owner, looking to improve his knowledge and hone his angling skills. You can always find him stalking the flats in his hometown of Pensacola, Florida or burning up the interstates on the tournament trail.
