Fishing with Eddie Burger......


Has anyone here fished with him? I could have sworn I've seen a couple reports mentioning his name. I'm thinking about booking a trip with him and wanted to know some folks experiences before doing so.

He knows his shite. I haven't been with him, but my friend works for him. They are both very good at what they do.

Eddie is a class act, damn good guy, and makes his trips very enjoyable for his customers. I highly recommend a trip with him any chance you can get.

I've never used him, but I've always heard good things about him.

Tried booking a trip, but Eddie is unavailable the day were looking at. Anyone know anything about his other captains? Trying to decide if I want to go that route or see if I can book with hunter cabellero.

Been on 3 trips with him. I always go in his 2nd boat. Michael Pittman is his name. Young guy from Covington. Really good. Caught a 152 and 92 YFT with him.

Pittman was the deck hand once I went with Eddie. He's a disgusting young man, but damn fine fisherman. Sloppy is good friends with Pittman. He can out you in contact with him.

Typical disgusting behavior from mid 20's males......
He told stories of dirty whores, ate raw tuna with blood/ bait in his hands, Eddie picked on him the whole time calling him a disgusting mother fricker and said he hadn't showered all week (trip was on a Friday), etc.

Two of the guys with us grew up with Pittman. I think it was all a show to get them comfortable and poke fun at the deckhand. I will always associate Pittman with disgusting after that trip.

Well that's not too bad. Sounds like he would get along well with our red cheeked pal from Oak Grove.

Yes! One could say they were separated at birth.

Pittman is a real good friend if mine, one if the funniest guys I know, a ridiculous human, and a damn fine fisherman. Have a trip booked with him later this summer.

Eta: he can keep it under control if you're bringing a family. He runs a 29' twin vee. You won't be disappointed.

You will be happy fishing with either Eddie or Pittman, IMO.
