Captain Eric provided a great fishing experience for my wife and me. I've wanted to fish for tuna for quite some time and finally had the opportunity on our recent visit to Cape Cod. Eric was constantly in contact with other charter captains and was able to put us in the right spot for a catch. He was very friendly, professional and answered all our questions about the equipment and the fishing process. Highly recommended

Great day at sea with captain Eric. His new boat was pristine and he diligently wiped down the rails before we set off. Quick and fast ride to an area where he jigged for live mackerel and caught 12 within 5 minutes. Then on to real fishing. We caught our 4 keeper bass within an hour (30 inches) and then went on to catch a few blues to bring home too. There was a great white shark in the area but we did not see it. All in all a great day at sea. The only way it could be improved would be if Eric let us hold our own fishing poles to jig for mackerel and catch bass but I guess he was worried we would drop them if the fish was too big. We will return again for sure!

My dad turned 80 on 10/23 and I turned 46 on 10/25. We thought it would be great to take a trip to the Cape to do some Striper fishing. Knowing it was close to the end of the season, Captain Eric set a realistic expectation of what he thought, given the timing. Other Captains trying to sell a day might’ve done the opposite just to make money. We were surprised to have caught 24 stripers before 11AM! Must have been charms for his honesty. His boat was immaculate. All the rods were rigged up and ready to go. He was a pleasure to be around. What a great choice to book with Schooney Charters and Capt. Eric.

Captain Eric seems to always know where to find the fish. His boat and high quality equipment are immaculate. Eric has an extraordinary knowledge of the waters and the fish that swim in it which help to make him very successful in catching fish. He is a great guy to spend the day with, very congenial and works hard to make the trip enjoyable and successful. I have fished with Schooney Charters for over five years and have always brought home multiple coolers of fish. On our most recent two day trip we caught our quota of tuna and striped bass before 11 o’clock. He goes the extra mile to filet and gives you plenty of ice for your coolers. He makes every effort to preserve the quality of the fish by having plenty of ice on the boat along with preparing it properly. The way he navigates the boat and the design of his boat makes rough waters much more comfortable than other boats I’ve been on. His boat also has a very clean head.

We had the best day with Captain Eric. He knew our family was interested in seeing whales so he took us to an area where we were right in the middle of dozens of whales who were feeding, diving, and breaching. After that we fished and caught lots of striped bass, bluefish, and bonito. He helped my 12 year old and 8 year old every step of the way. He was calm, fun, and kind, and helped them (and us patents) have a memorable and fantastic day.
