#BoatOfTheMonth Finn-Addict Charter Fishing Captain Chris Endicott 386-547-4053


For this Boat of the Month we step aboard Finn Addict Charter Fishing, one of the area's longest running captains & charters. Captain Chris Endicott is as multifaceted as they come and his long & seasoned history in the fishing industry has taken him all over the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, acquiring a wealth of knowledge along the way. Originally a charter Captain turned commercial fisherman, he returned to his first love of charter fishing and has been living his dream ever since.


You'll certainly enjoy your day on this 36 FT Yellowfin Center Console that was completely refitted in 2020, powered by twin 350 HP Yamahas. She comes complete with a wide T-top for the much needed breaks in the shade, a toilet for your convenience, and plenty of cushioned seating to go around. Cruising along at 35 knots she'll get you there in no time and her down & center riggers will ensure you land the areas most sought after catches.


Chris Endicott has spent over 30 years as a Captain, fishing from the Carolina's all the way to South America. His experience in both commercial and charter fishing means he is not only well versed in putting meat on the deck but experienced in a wide range of big game fishing as well. Returning to charter fishing was an easy choice for him- he enjoys all aspects of being a charter Captain and he never tires of the reactions. From watching a newbie catch their first saltwater fish to the die hard 'old salts' that board his vessel with set species in mind, he's always ready to have a great time!


Captain Chris says his favorite time of year to fish is most definitely Spring- when pelagics are on the move here. Being situated 30 miles west of the Gulf Stream always has its perks & the area is well known for its Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo & Blue Marlin fishing. You are sure to have an epic day with his dedication to providing each and every angler with the fishing adventure of a lifetime!

Trips aboard Finn Addict Charter Fishing include: 5 HR / 6 HR / 8 HR Offshore trips and an 11 HR Deep Water, Big Game Trip.




Fishing is fluid, that's part of the magic behind sport, commercial & charter fishing. Here you have a group of people all working together to carefully manage & adapt to a whole bunch of environmental & circumstantial factors that are forever changing, all playing their roles as integral parts in a working and proven machine.


Seeing it live and in action is truly awe inspiring if you take the time to step back and watch it in all of its glory, I've always felt it was far more compelling watching than just landing a fish on your own. When you step back you start to see it all- from the Captains analyzing all the data and reports, carefully balancing speed versus proper anchorage, knowing which bait or rig to use to the mates who's job is to act as a bridge between angler and Captain, all with the set goal of filling every void that presents itself along the way.. down to the angler, no matter the experience level. While every persons role plays a key part, the most important is the angler- regardless of experience level the angler is the fastest changing gear in this system, a role which the Captain and crew must constantly adapt to as the day progresses to get the job done.


The simple act of returning to the dock with a box of fish is under appreciated and overlooked occurrence, all the mechanisms behind it that not only have to line up but also work in unison to allow that to occur are nothing short of magic with a hint of luck. The next time you are out on the water with one of our Captains, I truly suggest absorbing all that is around you. The heart and soul of professional fishing lies in its team effort and its ability to adapt to any situation, no matter the factors. The end result will forever stay the same, it's the journey here that truly sets the stage.
