We booked a boat charter with Capt Kyle to check out the sights of the Crystal River area, and to do some snorkeling with the manatees. Although this was out of the "norm" for his fishing charter business, Kyle hit it out of the park for quality and service!! He took care of everything - we didn't have to lift... More

Great fishing trip with Capt. Kyle. Took great care if us. He took us back in the mangroves for Redfish. Caught a keeper the first cast. I don't know how he got back there or how he found this place. Storm came up for about 20 minutes and he took us to safety. No worries at all. Limited out on... More

Great guide, Kyle, made the fishing really easy, even baiting the hook. He knew just where to go. Even the manatees visited our anchored boat to be petted. It was the season for pampano and trout. We caught fish for about 10 meals. He even filleted them for us.

Fished today with Kyle. I fish on my own and have chartered over 10 times in different areas and nobody can compete with his knowledge of the local area. Every hole he put us on had fish. He was early (important to me), patient and very friendly. We can't wait to come back. Thank you Kyle you made our trip... More

This was our 4th year in a row fishing with Kyle and we've never been let down. It's hard to decide which trips are the best. We have a group who is definitely not fishing savvy and we always end up with a cooler full of fish and some fun catch and releases. This year included black drum, mackerel, redfish,... More

Captain Kyle Messier was outstanding for our scallop diving adventure. As an experienced scalloper we had high expectations and we also had two novice divers with us. Clearly, Kyle is professional, experienced and accommodating to our requests. Prompt and prepared for the catch also! I would highly recommend his services.

Thank you Capt. Kyle! We have just had 3 fantastic days of fishing and scalloping. We caught loads of fish including big redfish, snappers, shark, cobia and lots of others. We also hooked a massive Goliath Grouper on light gear and almost landed it, it smoked us on a last ditch run! We saw hundreds of turtles, dolphins herding mullet... More

I cannot recommend this guide(Captain Kyle Messier.) more highly. He was pleasant, patient, and most importantly knew where to find the fish!! My family had an excellent time, catching 10 different varieties of fish,(I actually lost count of the total numbers of fish caught .)

Couldn't have had a better time out with captain Kyle! This guy knows where his honey holes are, and when to target them! Fishing isn't luck, it's a science and this man is the master of it! Not to mention the ride through the flats is nascar on the water if you're into a thrilling ride! Landed some beautiful reds,... More
