Great experience with Eric.  First time back country fishing but extensive experience with guided charters.  My 10 year old son and I had an amazing time.  We chose Eric because of his experience and it certainly showed. Would use him again definately.

Backcountry fishing is in full swing. We caught some nice Snook this day and a variety of other species. Weather is not a factor when you’re fishing the Backcountry because you have the islands to block the wind and your in very shallow water!! .


Went fishing on Friday, October 14, 2016

Caught variety of fish at multiple locations. Snook, redfish, snapper along with jacks. Captain had good locations and very familiar with backwater country. Would recommend booking charter with Capt. Eric. Only reason boat not rated higher is due to captain’s boat under repair and needed to borrow friend’s boat for charter. The fish didn’t seem to notice the difference.

  Sorry Jim that we could not use my boat but it’s in the shop getting a brand-new motor put on.  Also getting a new paint job!  This is the time of year when we get everything in order for the upcoming season. But you still had a stellar fishing day!

Went fishing on Thursday, May 19, 2016

Captain Eric is a Pro. First time hiring a private charter, and my son and I were not disappointed. The weather did not agree, yet Captain Eric skirted around the edges of the storms most the day, keeping us hot on the fish, dry, and safe from the lightning. He knows what to use for bait and equipment, and where to use it. Flexible with our schedule as well, willing to “get out there” as early as we wanted to.  Looking forward to visiting with him again. Thank you again Eric.

My wife, five year old son and I snuck down to Key Largo for an extended weekend and decided to get in a half day of fishing. We chose Eric based on prior reviews and we are really glad we did. I actually booked a trip on the flats because I usually create chum for the fish when offshore, but Eric’s flats boat was in the shop. Instead, we took his 25 footer out on the ocean to fish reefs and it turned out to be a great day on the water. Eric was the perfect captain, taking us right over fish, supplying us with solid tackle and bait and cleaning up our catch when we returned. I did get queasy at one point and Captain Eric quickly moved us closer to shore where we continued fishing. All in all, a great experience for the family. I highly recommend Captain Eric and will definitely be booking with him again when I return to the Keys.

Captain Eric was great. He picked us up at our hotel dock at Pelican Cove, and we headed up to the backcountry. The day started out with a hint of rain, but turned out absolutely beautiful. The water was smooth as glass. We caught a variety of fish, with the highlights being two sharks my son caught. I wanted my son Eric to hook up with a big tarpon, but unfortunately it wasn’t the right time of year. I’m told April, May and June are the preferred times. Captain Eric was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend him and backcountry charters. We plan to go back in the spring.
Thanks, James Lowe

We had an awesome day with Capt. Eric. We saw some real big fish and had 2 hook ups. The first was within 3 minutes of getting to our fishing spot. Then it was a tease of a day. Tarpon were rolling all around us, just not by our baits. We were getting close to quitting time and I still hadn’t got a hook up. With the marina in sight and me disappointed, Capt Eric was determined to get me a fish. We were past our due time, but he stayed at it. I finally hooked up to a 100 lb Tarpon that I was able to fight for about an hour. It was a great day. I appreciated the tenacious determination of Capt Eric to get me hooked up.
I would book with him in a heartbeat.
