Guaranteed to Catch Fish!!! My job is to put you on fish, and I’m really good at it!! Just take a look at what my satisfied customers are saying about “Drag-on Charters” on my testimonial page. Come along with me, Captain Eric Paquin, for a fun and adventurous time catching big game fish, whether it’s inshore for Snook and Reds or offshore for Grouper and Snapper. I can assure you that I will get you on the fish safely and effectively. We have been fishing the waters in the Sarasota area for over 15 year. Drag-On Charters is one of the best Sarasota Fishing Charter companies and we service the surrounding areas, including Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Lido Key, Anna Maria Island and Bradenton.


Safety takes precedence when I am on the water, and great fishing is sure to follow! I operate a 26 foot Pathfinder designed to get you into the shallows for tarpon or snook, and even offshore on calmer days for king mackerel or grouper. I have installed many safety devices onboard, including an E.P.I.R.B. beacon which can alert emergency personal as to our location, quickly and effectively in the event of an emergency.

I provide just about everything you will need to enjoy a day on the water, including high quality tackle, ice, bottled water, and sun screen. Photos will be taken to document your memorable outing. Bring a hat and polarized sunglasses to enhance your fishing experience. If you like, bring food and/or drink and feel free to use one of my coolers. I will also clean and fillet your catch if requested.

Call Me directly and book a fishing charter now for an upcoming birthday, anniversary or any other special occasion!

Thank you.
