Tide Creek Charters Is located in Panacea, Florida an historic fishing and tourist waterfront village located along Dickerson Bay, bordered by the Ochlockonee River in Wakulla County between the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and the Apalachicola National Forest southwest of the state capital Tallahassee, Florida.
Capt. Chris Gouras, 66 years young, calls Panacea, Florida, “Heaven On Earth”. He spends most of his time inshore fishing THE FORGOTTEN COAST, east from the Aucilla River, Mandalay Bay, St. Marks, Spring Creek, Ochlockonee Bay, west to the areas of Mud Cove, Alligator Harbor, Turkey Point Reef, Lanark, and Apalachicola Bay.
Chris is a die hard fishing veteran and targets redfish and speckled trout in backcountry marshes, shallow flats, reefs or oyster bars. Chris can stake you out in a tarpon lane or look for active feeding tarpon in bays or open Gulf migration routes. Tripletail fishing, THE TURKEY HUNTING OF FISHING, is his passion and specialty. Chris uses bait casting and spin casting techniques with live or artificial bait and has tackle to accommodate your choice of fishing. Should you have any special request, let Chris know and he will do his best to accommodate your needs.
Chris is passionate about introducing children to the outdoors. He cherishes sharing ideas, teaching his customers and their children angling techniques, bait presentation and has special tackle to accommodate children. Chris considers every trip to be an adventure and looks forward to the opportunity of making your fishing trip a lifetime memory.
Capt. Chris is a United States Coast Guard licensed and insured Charter Captain.
