Captain Chris Wright
Born and raised in Kaneohe on the island of Oahu, with over 17 years of guiding experience, and 30 years fishing experience, I've have been fishing and exploring the Hawaiian waters my whole life and still learning and finding new spots. I know where the fish are for every tide and weather condition. We practice 100% catch and release on all Bonefish and Trevally, so our future generation of kids can catch some big fish one day.
Guiding is my passion and I love fishing and talking with people from all over the world. If I'm not out guiding, I'm out fishing for fun. I've learned so much being able to fish with so many different skilled fishermen. I have dedicated my life to becoming the best fishing guide for my client. Putting fishermen on big bonefish or any fish for the first time is one of the most rewarding accomplishments as a guide. Catching a trophy bonefish on the flats is a rewarding and amazing feeling that I love sharing with other fishermen.
My father, Stan Wright, is well-known for being the fishing host for 11 years on our local fishing TV show "Let's Go Fishing. " That's where I got my love for fishing and traveling. I've been on numerous fishing TV shows, showing my love and passion for fishing. The most famous show I got to be a contestant on was "Top Hooker" which aired on Animal Planet and Discovery Channel around the world for 2 months, 8 episodes with millions of viewers. Myself and 9 other contestants battled for $30,000 and a brand new Chevy Silverado. Other shows I filmed with are American Fly Guide, Kettlebottom Fishing, Larysa Unleashed, Beat Charlie Moore, Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Hooke, Fishing Tails with Mike Sakamoto, Hawaii Goes Fishing and Let's Go Fishing. Fishing has been in my blood for generations.
I've spent four years working on the TV show "Survivor" as a boat captain for the contestant boat and production crew boats. Being a boat captain for Survivor has taken me all over the world to drive boats. Been lucky enough to captain boats in Cambodia, Mozambique and Fiji. Fun job and lots of standby time to bust out my secret 4 piece fishing rod for a few cast.
I love walking and sight fishing the flats with my fly rod, hunting for big bonefish. I also enjoy fishing with light tackle spinning gear with topwater swimmy lures and poppers for action packed blow up attacks. Jigging and GT popping fishing are both some of my favorite types of fishing also. I spent many days on the open ocean catching yellowfin tuna(ahi), marlin(a'u), wahoo(ono) and mahi mahi. Whether its sight fishing the flats, deep sea, freshwater, saltwater, inshore, offshore,: I love it all.
I've been fishing all over the world from the small islands of Indonesia, jungles of Malaysia, Thailand for monster Toman, beaches of Cambodia, Lakes in South Africa, shorelines of Ponto Do Ouro, Namibia's Zambezi river for tiger fish, flats of Kiribati, atolls of Fiji, Mexico's lakes and oceans, sandbars of Nicaragua, waterways of the mainland USA and I know what it takes be be the best fishing guide for my client. I want to put you on that fish of a lifetime. Call me and let's get out on the water for a day of fishing. Aloha!
