** Please note, there is a potential fuel surcharge with your scheduled trip due to the escalating cost of fuel.** The Fin Planner is a 58 foot custom Carolina Sportfisher. We take pride in keeping the boat in pristine condition. In 2019, she received an entire new paint job and new twin MAN 1000 hp motors each, which allows her to cruise at 30 knots. Fin Planner is equipped with the most up to date safety equipment including a life raft. The boat has the finest tackle and electronics along with a TV and stereo with bluetooth that allows you to play your own music, plus three fighting chairs and a mezzanine. The Fin Planner also has 3 air conditioners to keep you cool on sunny days. Captain Chris Gornell and mate, Danny Prettyman have together been a tournament winning fishing team for the last 8 years. Both have been mating and running boats their entire lives. They make every effort to pit you on the fish as well as making your trip fun and safe. You can contact us through Captain Chris at (252)216-7787 or Oregon Inlet Fishing Center (800)272-5199, as well as following us on, Facebook and Instagram.

The Captain
Chris has been fishing for a living for 23 years and has held a Captain position for 12 years. He has his 100-ton Master's License. Before taking on a Captain's role, Chris mated for Brynner Parks on the Smoker and for Ronnie Fields on the D.A. Sea. Chris was named Captain of the Year out of Nags Head, NC in 2018. On the Fin Planner, Chris has recently placed and won in a number of tournaments such as Pirates Cove, Virginia Beach, Billfish Classic and Ocean City. In addition, he has placed and won in a number of tournaments around the world. In the winter months, Chris can be found running a charter boat in Costa Rica. Some of Chris's best days fishing include releasing 36 white marlin while fishing out of Ocean City, and 74 sailfish releases while fishing out of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Fishing has taken Chris all over, from the Outer Banks to Ocean City to Florida, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and throughout the Caribbean. When Chris isn't on the water, he spends his time with his wife, Lauren and their daughter, Omie, who is named after Lauren's grandfather, Omie Tillett, the legendary Outer Banks fisherman Omie Tillett.
