Member since October 2015
Captain Erik Johnson’s passion for fishing started at a young age. Growing up in Pennsylvania, he spent his time fishing for Walleye, Bass, and Perch on Lake Erie. He and his dad, who he considers his mentor, spent countless hours on the bayfront. When he was 9 years old, the family relocated to Fort Myers, Florida, which he still calls home today. After 15 years on the tournament circuit, Capt. Erik decided to share his passion by becoming a guide and giving back to the community by sharing his fishing knowledge. There’s nothing Captain Erik loves more than seeing someone catch their first fish! Head down to Fort Meyers and check out Red N Sea Charters for the memories of a lifetime!
