Matt Eckert, Owner & Guide
Matt was born and raised in Buffalo, NY and did most of his fishing on Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. In 2008 Matt moved to South Florida and wasted no time transitioning into the world of Saltwater Fishing! What Matt is most known for is his epic adventure in April 2014 during the EKFT “Battle in Bahamas” where he hooked an estimated 400-500 pound Blue Marlin on spinning tackle. He was pulled over 30 miles during the 11 hour battle! I don’t know of to many guides that can say they have done that! Matt is a member of the Hobie Fishing Team and his experience fishing along the Southeast coast of Florida makes him one of the most verse kayak anglers around.
