"Light Tackle & Fly-fishing Specialist"

NO FISH NO PAY's that simple!


Captain Chris Holleman was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He graduated from the University of North Florida with a BA in Management and Marketing.


He's been fishing the inland waters of Jacksonville since he was old enough to hold a cane pole.  Captain Chris has won numerous fishing tournaments on the Local Inshore Fishing Circuit, to include the 2000 North Florida Triple Challenge and the 1999 Florida Governor's Cup Flats Fishing State Championship.  His wealth of local knowledge and skill is vast, and  Captain Chris is ready to share with you all that he knows, so you can  experience the incredible light tackle fishing the Jacksonville area is most famous for.


Coverage Area:  Northeast Florida from Fernandina south to Jacksonville and St. Augustine.


Species Targeted:    While Captain Chris can consistently target any of the fish that patrol the waters of Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island, his specialty lies with Bull Redfish, Sea Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Striped Bass and Black Bass.

Boat:  Captain Chris runs a late model 20' Back Country Pro-guide with a 200 Horse Power engine.  The B.C. is one of the largest, fastest, and driest flats boats on the water.  She is extremely stable at rest, and with her unique hull design, Capt. Chris can carry three to four anglers in extreme comfort through a Jacksonville chop.


Charter includes:  Rod, reels, fly gear, live, dead & artificial bait, tackle, fishing licenses, sodas & water, ice, fish cleaning & bagging and no fish no pay guarantee.  Our professional and friendly attitude is free of charge.
