Capt. Eric White is no stranger to the sport of fishing. His passion runs deep as a 5th generation Floridian born in Tampa, Florida. His family moved to Sarasota County when he was a toddler and he began fishing the surrounding waters as soon as he was old enough to hold a rod. His enthusiasm to learn and share his knowledge of the sport only escalated throughout his childhood. His entire family shares the passion of fishing every summer family vacations always included fishing trips in the Florida Keys. Eric’s dad holds an Unlimited Masters License and has traveled the world. Eric’s mom, a Florida native, was raised fishing the Gulfstream off the East Coast of Florida and still continues to share the passion. Eric's sister lives in the Florida Keys and also enjoys backcountry and offshore fishing. Capt. Eric’s grandfather was the Director of WCIND and Eric spent many a day fishing with him learning about West Coast Inland Navigation.

When Capt. Eric is not on charter you will most always find him offshore perfecting his knowledge and skill. His family and friends will say, “Eric has a little salt water mixed in his veins, that boy can smell fish.”

As you step on board the Legacy you will be ready for more than just a fishing trip. You will be treated with the utmost respect and offered a fun friendly environment for all ages, but also a learning experience of the sights, sounds and beauty of the Gulf Coast not soon to be forgotten. Eric is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and skill and most importantly; the thrill of a screaming drag of that fighting fish with all of his clients!

Our fishing captains have been bottom fishing fishing the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico for many years and know where and how to catch these grouper and snapper as well as the many other species of fish.
