What drives Heavy? 

Big game fishing, and fowl hunting.

Chris earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science, and has spent the majority of his career on the water rather than at a desk. He says one of his career highlights was spending several months on a private yacht in Costa Rica where he bill fished and even navigated the Panama Canal.

His passion for adventure and the sport he loves have taken him all over the world in search of many species of fish. “There is nothing more sacred than time in the wild,” says Chris.

His customers tell tales of action packed days on the water, and they often return to the dock with big smiles, and plenty of swordfish, marlin, big eye, yellowfin, golden tile, snapper and dorado. 

Fees include the guided trip plus all fishing tackle, bait, ice for the fish box on the boat, and fish cleaning back at the dock

His boat is a 42-ft Freeman Boatworks catamaran.

Captain Heavy says:

  • respect mother nature and relish your time on the water
  • enjoy fishing and all it brings; each trip is new and invigorating
