Captain Matt Ercoli has been running Tamp Bay fishing charters fulltime for 15 years and is U.S. Coastguard licensed and commercially insured Florida charter boat captain. Matt dreamed that some day he would be a professional fisherman. At age 20 he had already laid solid ground work and had made charter fishing his first and only job to this day. As a premier Florida fishing guide Matt lives, eats and breaths Florida fishing. Five years into his career Matt had already won the Saltwater National Championships on top of racking up 5 world records. Now this Tampa Bay fishing captain's skills are sharper than ever.

24' Sheaffer Center Console
Captain Matt's Tampa Bay charter boat is a 24ft. custom Sheaffer with a new 225 Suzuki four stoke powering it. It is equipped with a powerful Raymarine fish finder and GPS. Make no mistake this is the best fishing boat in the mid 20 ft class in the world. Ask any naval Architect that is familiar with Sheaffer boats, and they will say the same.

Captain Matt’s Sheaffer is a full 8.6 feet wide, with a large casting platform on the bow. The boat is built like a tank. It weighs 6800 pounds and is full foam injected so it is truly completely unsinkable. It is equipped with a formula one portabracket so it can run in less than 12 inches of water.

The bait tank is 50 gallons plus with 2700 gallons per hour of raw fresh sea water running into it, as well as 1100 gallons per hour of chopped aerated water. This makes it possible for Captain Matt to keep hundreds of bait lively and fresh for a full day of Tampa Bay charter fishing.

The boat is equipped with a full 7 foot to the floor Tuna tower. That puts the Captain’s eyes at about 13 ft off the water. This makes it possible for Matt to see schools of fish under the water sometimes hundreds of yards away. The tower has a large shade to take a break from the sun and 10 rod holders to keep the rods up and out of the way when not being used.

The boat is equipped with 8 hp trolling motors, 6 large agm batteries so he can chase a school of tarpon with quiet power all day long without running out of juice. He also has two very powerful onboard chargers so his boat is fully charged and ready to go day after day. Captain Matt keeps a full spare set of trolling motors, batteries, and chargers at home so it can be changed out quickly if something goes down.

Captain Matt keeps his Tampa Bay fishing boat on a boat lift out of the water at his private dock. This makes it easy for him to keep his boat properly maintained and in tip top shape so that it’s ready to perform.
