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!
