Half Day Trip With Hurricane Charters

My experience with Hurricane Charters was great! Captain Eric was a very good and patient guide. When the fish didn't cooperate Captain Eric was ready to try new strategies to make sure we had the best chance possible at catching fish. We were able to catch several good sized fish of multiple species. I would recommend this charter for anyone wanting to try a fun and unique fishing experience!

Fishing With Eric

This was a very good fishing trip, Eric is very professional and really knows what bait to cast. We did not use any live bait and caught over 50 fish. I would highly recommend fishing with Eric and we plan on fishing with him again when we come back to Panama City. Eric is very safety minded and takes excellent care of his crew.

Fishing with Eric is one of those experiences that you will always remember and you can’t wait to get back on the water to fish. Eric is a class act on how to run a guide service.

Eric is a Great Captain

Eric put us on the Tarpon, but he can’t make the fish bite.  But, great trip.  Will do it again.

Beautiful evening in the Bay

Thank you Captain Nelson for a wonderful evening on the water. Great boat, great organization, and your knowledge of fish species, special comments you made about water currents, tides and specific characteristics of fishing related to them was something I had not received from other Captains on previous outing. It was enjoyable, thank you for that. I look forward to another trip. Oh yeah, catching fish was great fun as well.

4 hour in shore trip with Captain Eric

Great experience. Even on a day he said fishing was likely not going to be very good he put us on a ton of fish. Great conversation and I will definitely use again.

Fish with Hurricane Charters!

We had an excellent evening trip with Captain Eric May 24th. It was a bit windy but Capt. Eric knew where to go to find a suitable fishing area and as we rounded the last corner we knew we were in for a great time. Started out catching speckled trout with a few ladyfish thrown in for fun. Capt. Eric kept us moving to find the fish and he certainly did. A good trout bite, ladyfish, a flounder, and finally a 30 lbs. bull redfish. The redfish on light tackle was a real thrill and after a twenty minute fight he came to the net for some great pictures and a return to the water to fight again. Captain Eric is very professional and was more than happy to help when we needed a little guidance with our technique.  Boat and fishing equipment were top notch. We would highly recommend Captain Eric and Hurricane Charters to anyone looking for a great trip!

One on one with Captain Eric

Eric Nelson wants you to catch fish. The knowledge and skill passes on to novices to this type of fishing is fantastic. I caught fish, thanks to his guidance. Fish on! With this guide. Highly recommend.

Captain Eric recommended that we go out at a later time because of a cold front moving in and a NE wind blowing the water out of the bay.  We went later in the day and he still put us on the fish.  Didn’t catch a whole lot of fish, but we caught enough to make us happy.  It’s called Fishing, not Catching.  Captain Eric’s knowledge of the area showed and he gave me some pointers for fishing in Panama City.  Wife caught a really nice Redfish on a popping cork that she had never used before and I caught several Speckled Trout and missed a couple of Redfish.  Overall, it was a great time and he spent extra time with us.

Morning Fishing in the Flats

Captain Eric was amazing to work with in setting up the fishing trip.  It was a graduation gift for my son and his best friend.  The trip we originally booked wouldn’t work because of weather, and he went out of his way to make sure that they had the best trip possible before the end of our vacation.  They had an amazing time and look forward to booking with Captain Eric when we are at the beach again next year!  I am so grateful in a year when so many of their end of year plans were cancelled that he made this happen for them!!   Jill R. recommends Hurricane Charters

James S.    Enterprise, Alabama    Went fishing on August 8, 2020

great time

first time booking a charter. and first time for my son to fish from a boat. He had a great time and now won’t stop talking about it…is looking for boats for US to buy!! We showed up, chatted for about 5 minutes with Capt. Eric, then boarded the boat and set out. Left the channel and caught the first fish in about 10 minutes! All in All, during our “short” charter my son caught about 13 fish. and he was and is sooo happy about that experience.   James S. recommends Hurricane Charters

Great fishing trip with my 9 year old

Captain Eric could not have been better for our fishing trip. It felt like we were fishing with my uncle or something. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the fishing. He is good at explaining what is going on and pointing things out. We caught plenty of fish, had dolphins right next to the boat, and he was more than patient with my nine year old son. We had an absolute blast and will be back next year! If you want a fun fishing trip for your kids, this is it!!    Will B. recommends Hurricane Charters

AM Inshore Trip

Great morning of fishing with Capt Eric.  This was a super convenient trip.  We left out from Capt Eric’s house, instead of having to wait forever at a marina.  Caught several reds and a lot of trout.  We fished different types of water; catching fish in each location.  We were catching so many toward the end of the trip that we lost track of time a little.  Capt Eric is a great guy and a great guide.  We highly recommend him!    Kasey H. recommends Hurricane Charters
