I was visiting my two boys for the weekend.  We only had one day that we could get out and go fishing.  Unfortunately, the weather was awful that day with rain showers and winds but, Captain Eric agreed to give it a shot and we had a wonderful trip.  He put us one some big snook and a real treat was the Tarpon.  We had some great battles!  We are definitely going to book more trips with Captain Eric!

Thank you for the kind words Brad. It was a pleasure meeting you and your boys and I’m glad you talked me into going even in the bad conditions. I hope we can set up another trip next time you’re in town with some nice weather! Those tarpon will be here waiting for you!

Captain Eric put us on the fish! in 1 day we caught 22 Snook with 8 being over slot Monsters. after we slayed the Snook we went out in search of Some Reds and Trout and again Captain Eric put us on the fish. at the end of the day we all got our Slam and had a day that will not be forgotten. If you want to catch monster Snook, Trout, and Redfish this is the guy to book.

I’ve done several trips with Capt Eric in the past year and each one has been awesome! I’ve done personal charters with him and business charters taking out clients. He’s a very experienced and knowledgeable captain, and one of the best I’ve ever been out with! We crushed the snook, trout and monster redfish every single time we’ve been out! Highly recommended
