“Great Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

My husband and I had some plans to take our 4 year old daughter and 7 year old son fishing that fell through... Not wanting dissapointed kids we called trying to find someone to take us out. We struck gold when captain Eric agreed to have Captain Brandon take us out last minute and we couldn't have been happier!! He was great with the kids and even helped get our daughter distracted when some of the waves scared her a bit!! If you are looking for someone to take you out and you have small children they are the ones to use!! I have nothing bad to say! Oh yeah, and we caught a ton of fish!

“Second year just as great as the first”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is the second year in a row that we went fishing with Joe from Captain Eric's team. We had a great time fishing the intercoastal waterway. Joe works so hard to ensure we have fun and also made sure the fish kept coming. He knows many locations where we experienced not just great fishing, but scenic and quiet water. Any time we come to south Florida and want to do some fishing, we will always head to Captain Eric's.

“Glass-punching mantis shrimp & lots of fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Because the waters were choppy the day we went (March 21), Captain Brandon took 5 of us fishing in the back bay. When there were no bites in one spot, he'd take us to others where the fish were biting. At one point we'd have 3 or 4 lines tightening at once--very exciting! Even our 80-year grandma got in on the action. Caught & released mostly lady fish and catfish, but also caught some jacks & trout & lizard fish and most notably a weird creature that at first no one knew what it was, but our middle-school daughter identified as a mantis shrimp. She also said they can punch through glass, at which point we all scattered and Captain Brandon quickly threw it back in the water. Fun all around!

“Great Fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Captain Eric's fishing charter was fantastic. We booked a time with them about six days in advance, just looking for something fun to do. While on the water, the first mate, Joe, put us on many fish. We caught well over 60 fish this trip. Also, when we wanted to fish for bigger fish, he put us on a spot where we caught 5 big ones. They were very fun to catch. On the charter, we also saw dolphins and sea turtles. This fishing trip was fantastic, the views were great, and the people were very helpful and kind. They are definitely our go-to men from now on. This fishing is great for families, friends, or just solo.

“Best Fishing Around!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

My husband and I went out on a full day fishing with Captain Brandon and First Mate Joe January 12. What a great day! 85 and sunny and never without fish on the line. We caught Grouper and Amber Jack (or apple jacks if you can't remember the name) Everyone we talked to around Naples said "Brandon can put fish in the boat!" and boy, were they right. He worked hard at it, with the current going one way and the tide going another. A cooler full of fish on the way back. Nothing better than that. What a great experience. Brandon, you're the best. We'll see you next year. Can't wait. Tight Lines!!!
