Your Captain and Crew

Captain Chris and his crew of dedicated professionals deliver first class service. The Fishtale’s mates are friendly, efficient and ready to lend a hand or give some helpful advice to anyone who asks. If you’re a novice, you can rest assured that we love nothing better than helping someone new to discover how much fun a fishing trip can be.

Captain Chris Altbacker began his nautical career as a fifteen year old deck hand and rising to the rank of captain. He is a 10-year veteran of the U.S. Merchant Marine and is now the owner/operator of the Fishtale.

Fishtale has an unparalleled crew. “Quick with a joke, or a light if you smoke….” Ben, Kevin, Jesse, Dylan, Trevor and the rest bring over 25 years of experience to the Fishtale. From fishing lessons to cleaning the catch (and all things in between), the crew is there to show you a good time. Many of our repeat customers ask for them by name.
