Meet Captain Chris Davy and Southern Fried Charters - Rodman Reservoir

Get ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure with Captain Chris Davy, the man behind Southern Fried Charters on the picturesque Rodman Reservoir in Florida.

Captain Chris Davy's passion for fishing has deep roots, originating in his childhood in Nashville, TN, where he explored every pond and creek within a 20-mile radius, often on horseback. His early encounters with Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Rainbow and Brown Trout, and Catfish ignited a lifelong love for the pursuit of fish. During his teenage years, he fished on the Honey Chile boat in Sarasota/Longboat Key, FL, where he honed his skills in targeting "big fish." This experience solidified his dream of moving to Florida to live and fish, eventually leading him to become a professional fisherman in the mid-90s, specializing in Kingfish tournaments. In 2012, Captain Chris expanded his passion by hosting the Southern Sportsman Radio Show in Flagler County for eight years. However, his true calling remains guiding and sharing the joy of fishing, driven by the desire to create lasting memories for others with their family and friends.

Captain Chris' fishing expertise is as diverse as the waters he navigates. With a comprehensive approach to angling, he caters to various preferences and skill levels, acknowledging that there's no one-size-fits-all technique. Whether engaging with artificial purists or accommodating families with young children, Captain Chris tailors his methods to optimize success and enjoyment. He will even welcome the family pet. His keen understanding of the intricacies of fishing allows him to adapt, ensuring each excursion is uniquely tailored. The essence of his role is not just about catching fish; it's about creating an experience where clients, regardless of their skill level, can revel in a memorable day on the water filled with excitement and joy.
