I scheduled a trip about 1 month in advance. Captain Eric was quick to respond and book our trip. We have 2 girls 14 and 12. They had so much fun. Joe and Capt Brandon were very attentive and made sure that we had bait on the hooks and within seconds we had a fish on the line and help to reel in the big ones. We caught lots of Grouper and Snapper and they were incredibly tasty. I recommend Capt Eric to anyone looking for a fun, attentive, and a helpful, experience.

My Dad and I did a 6-hour offshore trip in April 2013 with Capt. Brandon and had a blast. We set up on a wreck and caught a few king mackerel (one jumped 6 ft out of water), got the first permit of the season on a swimmer crab, which was super fun and a tough battler. We also got into a big shark and some goliath grouper action (both broke the lines) as well as catching tons of snapper and red grouper. This was our 3rd trip and fishing with Brandon is a great experience. He is always very helpful and a good teacher. It was easy to see that Brandon has a great passion for fishing and enjoys being out on the water. I recommend this charter to anyone looking for offshore and backcountry fishing.

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!

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.

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!
