Captain Matt is first class and a great fisherman. He put us on snook and redfish right away and kept us on them all day. Couldn't have asked for a better trip. Would recommend him to anyone.

We went out in the middle of a significant cold spell and Captain Matt still put us on big fish. He clearly knows the area and where to go under any weather condition to find fish. It was cold and windy and we caught fish every spot we fished. When he said we were going to catch fish in a spot we did. His boat and equipment were clean, well kept and in good working order. Captain Matt takes care of everything for you and offers some helpful tips when you're on the water. He was very easy to work with - open to our input, flexible and always returned our calls. We had a great experience and caught a wide variety of big fish!

My friend and I came down from New York to fish for tarpon. We read the reviews and decided to go with Captain Matt Ercoli. We had an outstanding day of fishing for Tarpon in Tampa Bay! It was the first time tarpon fishing for both of us and we quickly learned why Captain Matt has such a great reputation, he knows where the fish are! He put us on tarpon all day long and we had several hook ups and got one monster to the boat. It took us 90 minutes to get this tarpon to the boat. What a battle! Captain Matt was very patient and instructive with us and by the end of the day we actually felt like we knew what we were doing. He made the entire day a blast and we are already planning to come back down to Fla and go out with him again. He is a true pro and we had a fantastic day with him. I highly recommend him for both beginners and experienced fishermen. Greg Howard, Rochester, NY

Great day on the water with Capt Matt. Made it easy on us! We managed to hook up 4 times while boats who followed us all day had no "luck". It's not luck Capt Matt knows the waters and what the fish will react to. Thx Capt Matt!
