Capt Eric on the right. Pic taken may 16 2015

Captain Eric was born and raised in Titusville, Florida.  Ever since he was little, the water has been one of his greatest passions.  Being that his dad was an inshore fisherman, Eric grew up push poling around the flats on the Indian river and Mosquito lagoon in search redfish.  After fishing offshore with family friends 8 years ago, Eric has been hooked on it ever since and always looking forward to the adventure of the ocean, he has jumped at every opportunity to be on it ever since. 

Whether it is bowfishing tilapia, gigging black drum/frogs, or building custom fishing rods Eric literally lives and breathes fishing, boating and water.  He is always trying to develop more efficient ways to do things or some sort of contraption he can use to catch more fish and do it better.  Captain Eric grew up as the oldest of five kids, which has made him a very well rounded person.  Eric is very easy to get along with and always loves to see people have fun out on the water.  He is currently a senior at the University of Central Florida and has almost completed his degree in business management.  Working out on the water has been a dream of his since he was young and now he could not be happier to get up and go to work every day. We are happy to have Eric on board with us and part of the Fired Up Family. he has been nothing but positive and awesome with all our customers. Please welcome him.
