Best part of our trip 

"Every trip we take we always ask, "what was the best part of the trip?" Once again, it was fishing with Capt. Chris Hanson, Scales 2 Tales, next to Sundowners restaurant. Great times, great fishing and no better charter captain!"


Amazing Trip!

"Our only regret is we didn't fish another day with Capt. Chris on our vacay to Florida!! His guided trip was the absolute BEST I've ever been on (and I've been on quite a few)!! He knows where the fish are and his knowledge of how to catch them was amazing! We will come back to Florida just to go fishing with him again!!! Thank you Captain Chris!!"


Great captain 

"Three of us went fishing with Captain Chris. We have been out with many captains over the years and all agree Chris came through big time. His expertise is obvious and his knowledge unsurpassed. Lost count on the number and types of fish we caught, but had enough to eat for three days and am sure we caught at least a dozen different species and brought at least 50 fish to the boat. Great day. Highly recommended"


Limited out!

Took our 3 teenaged daughters. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and patient but quick to take fish off, bait hooks, and offer advice on how to catch:) He held up fish so that we could all take pictures with them. We started out the day learning how he catches bait. We had questions and he had answers! Fun trip out to his honey hole and about 5 seconds after casting, we started catching! We didn't even have to switch spots. We limited out on our snapper and caught and released a lot of other fish too. Our goal was to CATCH fish and Capt Chris succeeded! He was very professional as he measured fish to make sure we were legal. He did not fudge AT ALL (if a fish was 1/2" too short, we threw it back). Easy to talk to, fun to joke with, and made it an awesome experience for all of us. Great guy, great captain, and great music on the boat:)


Chris knows where/how to find the fish

"Captain Chris took us on a bayside tour. We had 2 guys who always get seasick and had no problem (as Chris told us they wouldn't). He found us a spot where you could literally see tons of tasty mangrove snapper fighting over our bait. We caught at least 10 large snook, but sadly had to throw them back because out of season. We caught and released many jacks, sharks and tarpon - all very fun fighting fish. He kept everyone fishing the whole time by fixing the hooks that we threw into the mangroves, baiting the lines and rotating multiple extra rods. I recommend the whole day so you can get to the best spots that are a bit further away from the typical local fishing holes. Overall a fantastic experience." PVB


Another great Day with Capt Chris

"This is my 5th trip with Capt Chris and I will certainly be back. I have my choice of guides in Florida because I live in Florida and have access to some fantastic fishing. I keep returning to Key Largo because I know he will put me on the fish. I found Chris by speaking to the locals at the marina, and tackle stores in Key Largo. Capt Chris' name came up over and over. The thing I love most about Chris is he works his tail off to find the fish. We have never been out when we didn't catch fish. Our last trip, we caught 5 fine snook, and ton of other fish. (Jacks, trout, etc). I also had friends with me on the trip and they were impressed with his backcountry knowledge and guiding skills. Chris is always accommodating and great with customers when I bring them along. Well Done!!! Thanks again and I look forward to Tarpon fishing in a few weeks."
