DEEP SEA FISHING
A FAMILY TRADITION AND WAY OF LIFE
Captain Cole Hazellief
Brothers Cole and Zach Hazellief have fished the waters off Ft. Pierce for over 15 years. Together they continue the long-standing tradition of deep sea charter-fishing along the Treasure Coast on their boat the Lady Chris.
With a walk around configuration and seating for 40 anglers the Lady Chris offers action filled day trips to the best fishing grounds on the eastern seaboard. No matter what time of year Captains Zach and Cole know what is biting, and know where to find the fish, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Yeah, even on Christmas..
Bring your family, friends, and a cooler full of the right attitude for the best day of deep sea fishing.
