Reef Wreck Tarpon Backcountry Offshore
Capt Chris accepts Lifetime Achievement Award from IGFA president Rob Kramer March 2011 for guiding anglers to more than 100 IGFA World Records!
Captain Chris Morrison has been a Florida Keys Charter guide since 1995. He originally came from McClellanville SC, which is very near Charleston. He has operated a boat and fished commercialy and for sport for over 30 years and always on saltwater. After ending up in Marathon in the Florida Keys while serving as crew on a 78ft private boat via the Bahamas, he decided to stay and enjoy the incredible fishery here.
Morrison has a vast knowledge of the Florida Keys waters both in the Backcountry and on the reef and blue waters out on the Atlantic side.
He enjoys showing first time anglers and children the joys of catching fish and is always up to the challenge of pursuing trophy fish!
Consistent great catches are largely attributed to consecutive days on the water and an intimate knowledge of where fish and the live bait they prefer hide out.
