Born in Bradenton, Captain Kris Winkel was boating and fishing before he could even swim and has been a professional fishing guide for over 18 years. He intimately knows the waters surrounding Bradenton, specifically Tampa Bay, Terra Ceia Bay, and Sarasota Bay. Capt Kris has spent countless days and nights fishing these waters, pursuing his passion.
Captain Kris fishes all through the year. When he is not charter fishing or just fishing for himself, he fishes commercially for Ladyfish, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, and Mullet during the Fall run. Fishing for Mullet is a passion for Kris, and he loves catching them on the flats, chasing them to the passes and even out into the gulf!
More than a Charter Captain. Captain Kris is a Teacher.
Captain Kris enjoys fishing with people from all walks of life, from children to seniors, and takes great pleasure in teaching people that have never picked up a pole to love fishing. He likes to share his knowledge and experience with people and takes great pleasure in sharing his knowledge with his clients, helping them become better at inshore fishing.
From the time people get on the boat to the end of the charter, Capt Kris works hard to generate lasting memories and enjoys the sense of accomplishment he gets from seeing the smiles on his clients’ faces.
