About Native Sportfishing

My roots in the Tampa Bay area run deep. I was born right here in Saint Petersburg, Florida and my passion for fishing the waters surrounding Tampa Bay was cultivated at an early age. Along with my father and brother, I spent much of my youth fishing everywhere for everything that could be caught in saltwater. As one of the few true “Natives” I took full advantage of every chance to observe and dissect the habits of the gamefish that call Tampa Bay home.

The only thing more enjoyable than fishing in my “backyard” is to introduce folks like YOU to the diverse surroundings that make Tampa Bay such a unique fishery and home to beautiful wildlife. I take great pleasure in watching my clients get immersed in this awe-inspiring place.

Come join me aboard my 25 C-Hawk “Native 1” as we pursue legendary saltwater species such as Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Black Drum, Mackerels, Kingfish, Snappers, Groupers and various Shark species. You’ll never forget the experience of stalking these species in a multitude of habitats aboard the most comfortable and best-equipped inshore vessel on Tampa Bay.

have now been 3 times with my son and some college friends and we have caught lots of snook on every trip including one of the biggest trophy snook I have seen. On two of the three trips, we caught over 30 snook!

Capt. Kyle is a great guy and guide and very patient with kids. We will be back.”

Captain Kyle will give YOU the experience you want.. for the first timers he will bait and cast for you and all you have to do is reel those babies in to the boat and smile with them squiggling in front of you… to the pros who are looking for some sport/trophy photos… this is the charter captain for you! His equipment & boat are top notch.. really comfortable and zippy. Snook, red fish.. and even a 60 pound ray … In fact my husband had to go out and buy the rig that he supplied to us on the boat we liked it so much. The captain has lived his life on the bays and coves of St. Pete.. he will sniff the fish out for you. It’s always an exciting day on the water with Kyle. Two years in a row we have booked with him and we can’t wait to do it again… Hey tell him Mo says Hi… maybe he’ll give us a deal next year;)”
