Captain Eric

On Rooster, we live to fish. We get excited about every fish we catch and strive for every customer who steps onboard from seasoned veterans to our youngest angler to share in that excitement. - Capt. Eric
Captain Eric resides year-round on Block Island. He has a 100 ton US Coast Guard Master Captain's License and graduated from The International Yacht Restoration Marine Systems School (IYRS).  He has been featured on several sport-fishing TV shows and magazines including On the Water magazine and Salt Water Sportsman.

Captain Eric has been chartering Block Island's waters since 2002. He is the owner and operator of Rooster, one of Block Island's largest charter boats. He began charter fishing with the original Rooster in 2002, a vessel he restored from top to bottom while attending IYRS in 2009. In 2016, he upgraded to a new vessel, a 37' Topaz Express. This provides more comfort and speed.
Captain Eric and crew specialize in providing action packed trips to everyone from the beginner to the seasoned expert. They fish for everything from Striped Bass to Bluefish to the delicious Black Sea Bass to Fluke and more. Captain Eric supplies all of the bait and tackle, you and your group are welcome to bring snacks and drinks for the trip.
