USCG Captain Chris Miller: I was born in Georgia and my love for fishing started catching Large Mouth Bass with my dad at 5 years old, and I was obsessed immediately. We would fish every chance we got and he even called in sick a few times if I wanted to go.
My love for fishing followed me and got even stronger when we moved to Florida and found this amazing saltwater world. Growing up in Florida allowed me to pursue my obsession with being out on the water. From fishing, paddle boarding, scuba diving, and spearfishing, I spend almost all my time on or near the water.
I have a deep love for fishing and more importantly a passion for making memories on the water. Nothing makes me happier than to see a child’s face light up when they catch their first fish or an adult who has been chasing “the big one” and finally land it.
I have several PADI SCUBA certifications from Open Water to Rescue Diver and spent several years on the Sheriff’s Office Dive Team. I have over 30 years of experience fishing, diving, and spearfishing the waters of Florida’s Nature Coast of Tampa Bay, and will do my best to make it a safe and memorable trip for you and your loved ones.
I am very proud to say, in addition to being a deputy, I am also a USCG Captain and Ambassador for Clenzoil and IRockerSUP. Pro Staff for Salt Life, Engel Coolers, Power-Pole, Costa, and the Coastal Conservation Association of Florida.
