The Passing of Eric Brictson

Fellow fisherman, 

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Eric Lee Brictson, owner and operator of Gordo Banks Pangas. Over the last 38 years not only has Eric Brictson been a pioneer of fishing in La Playita, but he has been an integral part of this community. From always lending a helping hand, to putting La Playita fishing on the map, Eric did it best.

He fished many years, wrote many fish reports that reached world wide, and taught many of our fellow Captains how to fish since they were children. He always cared about protecting endangered fish species and made it a point to release young ones in order to continue procreating, hence keeping the fishing community in business. He cared very deeply for all of his clients, friends, captains and family. In his spare time he enjoyed spending quality time with his family and friends, watching baseball, writing, eating good food, spending time with his animals, and telling his infamous stories to anyone who would listen!

He will always be remembered for his vast knowledge of fishing, and his legacy of running a successful business these last 38 years. Eric’s Sunday fish reports will be missed, but never forgotten. We ask for privacy during this time while we grieve and get our affairs in order. We thank you for your understanding and will update all of our wonderful clients as soon as we have more information regarding the future of Gordo Banks Pangas.

Tight lines and calm seas. 

Good fishing, The Brictson Family
