Eric Harrison


Eric Harrison has been fishing from Hobie kayaks for ten years and he has been an avid kayak fisherman for the last fifteen years. Growing up in Southern California, he fished almost every day, year round.

Living in the Boston area he doesn’t get out as much, but still gets his kayak on the water every month of the year. These days most of Eric’s fishing is in the Boston area, but he regularly travels throughout the Northeast fishing everywhere he can, both salt and fresh.

Harrison notes that, “with tides often over ten feet, Boston has quite a bit of moving water, but being able to pedal around makes me feel like I’m walking in water. In my kayak I can hang in Boston’s fishiest spots while boats go drifting past!”

Eric primarily targets striped bass from his Hobie Revolution 16, and he focuses his fishing on big bass during the summer months. Eric has finished in first place in the New England Kayak Fishing Striper Shootout 5 times; he qualified for the Hobie Worlds with a winning slam in the Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Classic.
