Friends and I fished with Matt May 19th 2015. We hooked and fought. Jumped, as they say, nine tarpon. Leader touched two. I have lived and fished Tampa bay for almost 10 years. I have seen Matt continually out fish other boats numerous times. As a tarpon guide for Ana Maria area there is none better. Matt's boat is extremely... More

Beautiful morning of fishing with Captain Matt. Snook and Sea Trout. Captain Matt is the consummate professional had the bait loaded and ready and we were on the fish in no time. Highly recommended.

I had the chance to fish a half day with Capt Matt at the start of tarpon season this year and highly recommend him. His scheduling and communication are great and he went out of his way to be sure I knew where to meet him. Matt put us on fish right away and after breaking off a fish on... More

Myself and a couple of friends just enjoyed one of the greatest fishing trips of our lives.We fished with Captain Matt 3 days for Tarpon. We hooked up somewhere around 25 fish and boated 6 of them. The fish had just started moving into the area and there were almost no other boats. We couldn't have had a better time.... More

We did a 3/4 day offshore. I knew Matt was a good choice once we started getting bait. Not being able to see exactly what the other boats were getting, it seemed he was able to snag far more bait each cast than the other boats out there. He put us on fish immediately. Once the action slowed from every... More

We (4 adults and 2 girls 8 and10) asked to catch lots of fish, then catch fish for dinner. Captain Matt did exactly that, patiently enduring millions of questions from the two girls and keeping us on fish all day. His boat is spacious and has a solid hull that takes the waves well. We caught snook, sea trout, and... More

Captain Matt did a fantastic job. He took us out to a spot he said" we would catch fish" sure enough we caught reds, kings, grouper and had a shark on. If you want a great charter with a captain that can get you on fish this is your guy, he knows his stuff. Thanks Captain Matt Thanks again Craig... More

What a day! Caught so many massive kingfish, grouper, snapper, Spanish mackerel and several others. Action was non stop. Headed to another spot and worked a massive school of permit - all on light tackle spinning rods. The boat was solid, dry, stable and versatile - very impressive. Captain Matt runs a great business. He's out there every day (literally,... More

I have been fishing with Matt Ercoli for about 15 years... two or three times a year. I have never had a bad trip in all that time. He is very experienced and knowledgeable, fun to be with, and he can go from coaching beginners to giving tips to guys who have been fishing a lifetime. I always learn something... More
