Captain Chris Gergely, Double Trouble Sport Fishing
My passion, and enthusiasm for sport fishing drives me to share the thrill of the hunt with others who are beginners or seasoned veterans in the sport fishing arena. I have fished the waters around Watch Hill and Block Island for over 15 years and have learned what techniques and gear are necessary to catch our target species throughout the fishing season. I like to put an emphasis on using lighter tackle so our customers can enjoy fighting the fish and not the gear. My goal is to ensure you have a fun and memorable time while fishing the waters around Watch Hill, Block Island, and Montauk, aboard our boat the Double Down. We are a family friendly charter boat and we welcome family’s with children!
