Went out for a half day of inshore fishing with Captain Kyle. Kyle was great- helped with fishing and casting tips, discussed the environment and fish info , put us on fish in an absolutely beautiful area, and was generally just a nice guy. You will have a fun time with Native Sportfishing !

Wow! Way more fun than a big boat charter. Owner/Operator Ben has top notch equipment and knows where the fish are. My son (13) and I hammered ~50 big snook and reds until our arms fell off. Best 4 hours of fishing we've ever had.

Every time I visit the Tampa-St.Petersburg area I book a trip with NativeSportsFishing's Captain Ben Boyle. He always knows where the big fish are and what they want for dinner! Great time with great fishing every time. His new boat makes it all the more fun.

Captain Ben is a really nice guy that put us on a ton of snook in the 20-26 inch range, along with a couple of stray trout. Man are those fish fun to catch, jumping out of the water and darting all over the place. He also took the time to answer all of our questions. His boat was nice and his price is reasonable. Would definitely go with him again.

We were told by a friend about Native Sport-fishing and we are so happy we called!! It was so last minute and they accommodated us on a really comfy tour boat. More comfy than a fishing boat.

Anyway, we had a fantastic morning with Captain Aaron & mate Joey. They made sure we hit all the fishing spots we could and made sure we caught fish. We managed to catch a bunch of Snooks which are so fun! They have fight in them and my partner caught a big one so that was exciting! We are only here for a few days and we did catch and release.

Aaron knew a lot about the area, the fish and how to catch them. They had sunscreen, water, beer and great conversation to share. Highly recommend this experience! Easy to get to too!!

On Wednesday, a friend and I spent 6 hours inshore fishing with Capt. Kyle. Kyle is a very knowledgeable, competent guide. He put us on fish almost immediately and we caught some very nice snook and jack crevasse. I would not hesitate to go out with him again.

Searched out Capt Ben online and hooked up for 2 days of inshore fishing.First day we were on snook and grouper mostly with some good sized fish. I always wanted to tangle with a good Jack and tangle I did-with 2 and they both got off,one after a 10-12 min battle. lots of fun in shallow water. Day 2 I was out with Capt Kyle and he is also great to fish with. Young,energetic,and he brought me to different areas on day 2. Not all places were highly productive but some were.Again we were mostly into snook.We ended the day on a very shallow flat in a very pretty area and pounded on snook and redfish for over 2 hrs nonstop.We even had a shot at a snook that would have gone over 10-but those big ones dont get big by being stupid. I was hoping for some tarpon action but it was still too early in the season,not the fault of the guides.Overall I was quite happy with my trip and wouldnt hesitate to recommend Capt Ben and Kyle for their services.

I have been out with Capt. Ben three time in the last year and every time, no matter what the weather, we get lots of fish. Today was over the top. We caught Snook and most were over 30 inches. Awesome day of HUGE fish....This Captain works hard to always find you fish. Top Notch and worth every penny!

We had a great time. Caught lots of snook and Jack. Ben knew the area well. Nothing at first and then we hit the jackpot.
