My First memories of fishing were with my Grandpa. I used to spend every summer at my grandparents’ house fishing off their dock, and it was here that I caught my first redfish. Ever since that day, my “hobby” of fishing has turned into an addiction.

Originally booked a full day nearshore but due to high winds needed to change to inshore. Captain Eric called the day before explaining the situation and offered to switch. Very professional local captain who worked very hard to put us on the fish. A good day overall with some quality Black Drum. Thanks Captain Eric for turning a dud into dinner!

Let us say that we didn’t had the chance to catch a fish, despite we were 4 hopers on te water.
What I didn’t understand was what we’re doing in a small creek of twenty yards large, where other fishers were fishing on the wall
We, my son and I who had fishing before several times in Tampa, were very disappointed, sorry to say that , but what would you say if even you didn’t cath a fish? And the management wouldn’t do an effort for my second fishing trip?
Kindly,
Luc

Luc,
I’m not quite sure what to make of this review. You booked a 4 hour trip with
me for inshore fishing. I explained at the start of the trip what we were going to catch and what we would be doing every step of the way. I even asked what you guys wanted to try and catch and you told me “anything.” I understand that the language barrier made it a little more challenging to explain things, but none the less, I kept trying to work and explain things
to you guys, as well as demonstrating how and what you needed to do. To say that you guys did not catch any fish is flat out untrue. Your son caught 3 sea trout and a black drum, and you caught a sheepshead. That’s 5 fish that we got to the boat and we had many more bites that you did not catch. I apologize that we did not catch any keeper sized fish, but every day is different and I can’t always control all the factors involved.

We tried fishing artificial lures for sea trout because that’s what they have been biting best. In order to get a bite on a lure, it really makes a big difference in how far you can cast a rod and how you work the lure.  I did my best to work with you on casting and how to work the bait, but I could tell it was somewhat difficult for you. So instead, I tried taking you guys to a spot we could fish with bait, in an effort to try and make things a bit easier. I’m sorry that you did not catch more fish, I can only put you where they were and hope that they will eat for you and you will be able to reel them in. I’m sorry that you were disappointed with the trip overall because it seemed like you guys were having fun. I even asked you if you had a good time after the trip to which you said “yes.”

I really wish you would have addressed this with me at the end of the trip instead of just telling me everything was good after I asked you if you had a good time. Furthermore, I gave you guys an extra half hour because the fishing was slower than normal. I would have loved to stay out longer and given you more time, but as I told you, I had another trip right after yours. What I cannot figure out is what you meant by saying that I “wouldn’t do an effort for my second fishing trip.” You did not have a second trip booked with me, nor did you ever mention a second trip. Again, I apologize and would really like to get you out there again on a better day. If you would be interested, please contact me. I would really like the chance to show you better fishing and discuss what times of year would be best.

Kind regards,
, Capt. Eric Myers

Had a great day of fishing this past Thursday out on the Atlantic. The seas were calm and the fish were biting! John and Mike couldn't get their baits in the water fast enough, and we also could not… Read Full Report →
