Captain Neil Eisner knows his fishing. My son and husband have been twice now and each time they have enjoyed themselves and have caught lots of fish in their 4 hours. Captain Neil prides himself on you catching the fish! We will only fish with Captain Neil!

I am a snowbird but while in Fort Myers Beach I fish the back bays 4 to 5 times a week. The fishing is constantly changing and at times I need a tuneup and Capt. Neil is my guy. He knows how I like to fish and tailors the trip to show me new areas to fish. Here he instructs me on the best baits to use depending on what's biting, what parts of the shoreline to target and corrects my casting techniques. On 3/24/20 we went to a new spot and caught several snook, redfish and mangrove snapper. I went out by myself to the same area the next and had my best day ever. Six large reds, a PB 14" mangrove snapper plus many more snapper. Capt. Neil even encourages me to fish the area where he has taken me and doesn't attempt to 'protect' his spots. He's the best.

My mom and I had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Neil Eisner at the beginning of March 2020. We caught many types of different fish, learned the techniques of fishing in Florida, and had a wonderful time learning about the area. I didn't know how to cast, but Neil was very patient in teaching me and didn't get upset when I accidentally caught a tree... My mother and I highly recommend Fishing the Flat Charters with Captain Neil Eisner!
