Sea N Red Charters

Hello, my name is Erik Johnson. I am a guide here in the lovely southwest Florida.

I offer fishing trips aboard a 22ft. Skeeter Bay boat that can accommodate up to four people.With the 4th being alittle extra. I offer back Bay fishing from Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon and many other species.

My goal as a Guide is to make fishing trips as memorable as possible for everyone on board and to make everyone leave with a smile. I also aim to make lasting impressions and give people fish stories they can tell their grand kids!

I have been tournament fishing for Redfish around southwest Florida for over 15 years, and decided to share my passion by becoming a guide and giving back to the fishing community with my knowledge of fishing! There is no better feeling in the world than seeing someone catch a fish of a lifetime!

The best way to experience the Fort Myers-Sanibel area is to hire a fishing guide. Ready to fish with one of the best guides in the area? All you have to bring is drinks, food and snacks. Everything that is included in the trip: water,license, equipment, bait, ice and Captain Erik. Additionally, you will see an abundance of wildlife, such as Ospreys, Ibis, Herons, Egrets, Pelicans, Eagles, Dolphins, Manatees and more.

Enjoy your photo click moment with Captain Erik and step aboard the Sea n Red Charter Fishing Excursion!

I grew up in Erie Pennsylvania, fishing Lake Erie for Walleye, Bass, and Perch!! That's where my passion for fishing began. It started at the age of 3 with my father mentoring me, and spending countless hours on the bay front fishing. Then we resided in Ft. Myers, Florida at the age of 9. I continued my passion chasing Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon and other species throughout Southwest Florida!! Fishing around these waters for over 20 years I decided to take the next step in my fishing career and help make memories for others!!
