Booked a half day with Captain Kris with my son and father in-law. Captain Kris did a great job accommodating our varied fishing abilities and finding fish for us this late in the season. I would definitely use Captain Kris again.

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!
