About Weekly Fisherman

We own a radio show called The Weekly Fisherman. Hosted by long-time Radio DJ Eric Brandon and Joe Hector, this 2-hour show runs every Saturday morning on South Florida Sports Station 940 WINZ, an iHeart Radio network. The show’s format consists of live call-ins by celebrity captains who share their local fishing knowledge with listeners. Between captains, listeners call in to quiz the hosts on up-to-the-minute tips, techniques, and hot fishing spots. More importantly, the name Nautical Ventures remains top-of-mind with this boating audience and has a nationwide reach thru iHeart’s podcasts & streaming audio.

15 Years of Experience

The Weekly Fisherman is in its 15th year of production and has a loyal audience of about 20,000 live listeners in our Tri-County area.  Our hosts, Eric Brandon & Joe Hector, are akin to rock stars in our local fishing community, and they attract very hi-profile fishing gurus to appear on the show.  They are only one phone call away from people like Jimmy Johnson, George Povaromo, Bouncer Smith, and many others. The show is also cross promoted on other popular iHeart programs such as the Paul Castronovo Show, Jeff DeForrest Sports Trivia Show, etc.  They often have our hosts in the studio for interviews or as call-ins, further spreading the gospel of our sport to a passionate fishing & boating audience.
