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

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.
