We caught a ton of blackfin tuna and even went near a ship wreck to catch sharks!! The guy knows what he's doing and won't give up. He's easy going and... More

We were so happy with Eric that we went out two days in a row. We asked him to put us on sharks and within 15 minutes of arrival at the first spot we were on a 6 foot Bull shark followed by a 10 foot Hammerhead. Eric will get you fishing the way you want to fish. He knows... More

Captain Eric and Mate Ryan are excellent all around fisherman. I have been fishing many times before. So going to Key West fishing with my friends I was in charge of booking the fishing trip. I called five different charters. All of which recommended 6 hours or more. Captain Eric recommended 4 hours saying the fish were running closer to... More

This was our first vacation in 5 years. Our 3 kids are now teenagers, so the pressure was on for everyone to have a great time. The best part of our trip by far was fishing with Captain Eric and Ryan. Ryan had us fishing as soon as the anchor was dropped. We kept them quite busy baiting hooks and... More

We fished with Captain Eric this week and had a great time! Hooked a few Tarpon, caught enough fish to have a wonderful lunch the next day and enjoyed the sunset from the water! We will definitely be back and fish with FISHY BUSINESS again! Thanks Eric and Ryan!

Refered by key west bait and what a great captain. Although we could not afford it, I appreciated his honesty, the fact that there are no hidden fees and he even referred us to a party boat that worked for the kids. What a great job and based on his honesty and information, would want to. Go fishing when down... More
