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!

Excellent trip, Captain Kris did an amazing job handling a family of 5 including my 7 year old daughter. We all caught multiple fish and had a overall great outing. We will be back for sure! Highly recommended.

Great day. Started off as fishing ending with just catching :). Good capt. Made sure you always had a pole in your hand that he baited. Your only job was to catch and have fun. Would recommend to anyone
