We had a great time fishing with Captain Matt! I wanted to surprise my husband for our 20th anniversary, and we also had our 10 yr old grand daughter with us. My husband said it was more than what he expected. Our grand daughter had a fantastic time catching lots of Snook, enjoying the beauty of the flats, and learning... More

Captain Matt took a group of 3 of us out for a quick (3 hour) guided fishing trip. Within 10 minutes of leaving the dock we were chasing a big Cobia. After not being able to entice the fish to hit our bait we headed off to catch some snook. The instant we anchored we were on fish. We caught... More

If you're looking for one of the best fishing guides in the Tampa Bay / Longboat Key area, look no further. My daughter and I spent two days with Capt. Matt, fishing primarily for snook & reds. We caught 75+ snook, redfish, spotted trout & even a flounder or two! One of the best Florida fishing experiences I've had! Matt's... More

We did a 6 hour trip with captain Matt last week on March 12. It was two couples and my dad (5 of us). We went out into shallow area with mangroves not too far from his house where we met him in the morning. Though I had to get used to not setting the hook with circular hooks, others... More

Capt. Matt Ercoli provided an outstanding experience inshore fishing in Tampa/Bradenton. First class treatment, highly proficient and, above all, he found lots of fish (snook, redfish, jacks and a couple flounder comprised our haul for the day)! If you are looking for a day trip fishing in the Tampa area, definitely try to book Capt. Matt. He accommodates all levels... More

We took our second trip with Captain Matt a couple of weeks ago. This year we fished inshore for snook and trout. All four of us had a great time -- probably the highlight of our trip to Florida this year. Matt does a great job creating a very enjoyable fishing experience, even for fishing novices like us.

We have fished with Captain Matt for almost 10 years now. Each and every charter is a great time with lots of action! Captain Matt’s experience in the Tampa area waters is second to none and he always finds the fish. We have made it an annual tradition and look forward to this trip every summer!

We caught red fish,sea trout and snook. So many even my son had to had to rest his arms. Capt Matt worked hard... More

You don't go fishing with Capt. Matt, you go catching! He knows where they are, and when they are going to be there! You don't need to do anything besides show up ready to have fun, bring a lunch, drinks, sun screen, etc., and hold on! He provides the bait and has quality tackle on board his comfortable boat. I've... More

Captin Matt provided my family a fishing trip that continues to be talked about. We all cought quality fish and a lot of them. We cooked the fish Captain Matt fileted and not one of the fish had a bone in it. I will continue to fish with Captin Matt every time I am in Holmes Beach.
