The Sunshine State is blessed with amazing inshore fishing, thanks to two highly-productive areas, the Banana Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon. Slightly Obsessed Fishing Charters takes full advantage of that fact and puts you on the hottest bite in the waters of these natural wonders!

Captain Eric Myers invites you to join him on board his 22’ Pathfinder. She’s quite roomy, thanks to her center console design, allowing for up to 4 anglers to fish in comfort, without tangling lines. Thanks to her wireless trolling you can sneak up on the spookiest of fish living in the lagoons. Her shallow draft allows you to easily navigate the inlets and tiny islands that make these waters so productive. Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, and the gorgeous Snook, all of the inshore A-listers are on the catch menu.

If you’re a fan of blue waters, nearshore trips are also available! Anglers looking to test their mettle will be glad to hear they can hook up Cobia, one of the best fighters pound-for-pound. Trophy fishermen can go after the Silver King, and finally tick that off their bucket list. Kingfish and Tripletail, as well as other fish, can be targeted in these waters. Nearshore trips are run out of Port Canaveral.

Remember to bring sunscreen and polarized sunglasses, the captain will take care of everything else. Equipment, fishing licenses, lures, a cooler, bait, it’s all covered for and included in the price. Remember to bring some bags, so you can bring your tasty catch home with you after the captain cleans and fillets it.

Whether you’re looking for some Bull Redfish, trophy Tarpon, or just want to spend the day blowing off steam, Slightly Obsessed Fishing Charters has a trip perfect for you!

Captain Eric Myers got his slight obsession with fishing thanks to his grandpa. He practically grew up at his grandparent's house where he'd fish from their dock, finally catching his very first Redfish. He got his boat when he was 12 and immediately began exploring the Indian River. One thing led to another and soon he was taking his friends out on fishing trips while he was in college. This led him to his true calling, being a charter captain and putting his guests on the best bite!

My 12 year old son and I are keen anglers and on making our first trip to Florida we knew fishing would be on the agenda. We booked a half day charter from Port Canaveral with Capt Eric Myers and when I got a call in Scotland from him to confirm the booking I knew we wouldn’t be disappointed! The target of tarpon was scuppered by the colder waters that moved in quickly just before our trip, but with a backup of ‘anything that swims’, Capt Eric was confident he could put us on fish. After a bit of a slog to find some baitfish we headed out with enough to last the session and we were very quickly into kingfish and sharks. Some mystery larger fish were occasionally grabbing the baits and trashing us on lighter gear, and we eventually figured it was mainly snappers (one accidental capture safely returned). It was a pity that some of the bigger fish didn’t come out to play, but we both had an excellent trip all the same- bucket list stuff!
Capt Eric worked hard to keep us on the fish and had his hands full unhooking and re-rigging. His communication before the trip was excellent and he made us feel very welcome aboard. Highly recommended. Cheers!

We had a wonderful time catching and letting some get away. We even learned a bit or two so maybe next time we won’t let as many get away.
