Captain Erik has been fishing the Gulf of Mexico for over 30 years. He is very experienced in all types of fishing, from fishing with live bait to deep dropping. Guiding fishing charters is not his full-time​ occupation, which makes him enjoy every second he is on the water even more than those around him.

Memorable experience.  Captain and crew took good care of us.  Well planned and executed.  Made sure we caught plenty of fish, while experiencing several modes of fishing (casting, trolling, fly fishing).  Knew where the fish were and how to use the time for best experience.  Worth every penny; we got what we paid for.
