Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Chris spent most of his childhood fishing the Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay. As a kid he spent the weekend and summers fishing for redfish with his dad, brother and uncles and by the time he was a teenager he was running a boat of his own.

As Chris got older, he continued to use exclusively lures and evolved from Kelly Wiggler shrimp tails under a Mansfield Mauler to a full arsenal of plastics, plugs, and everything in between. In high school he started to shift his focus from chasing redfish to targeting big, speckled trout.
Chris earned his Captains license in 2018 and started offering charters on the Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay areas. He now specializes in wading with artificial lures as well as sight fishing for redfish in the ultra shallow water.
