Tarpon Fishing Charters
Countless people have visited the West Coast of Florida to mine their share of precious Silver – as in the “Silver King”: Tarpon.
Tarpon combine the traits of many elite gamefish into one bruising yet acrobatic package: the speed of a bonefish; the aerobatics of a sailfish; the grueling runs of a marlin and the ferocious bites of a tuna. Nothing makes you as “weak in the knees” quite like witnessing a triple-digit Tarpon inhaling your bait a few feet from the boat to be followed by breathtaking jumps and bicep-testing runs. What’s more is that Tarpon have no table value, which means that the Tarpon fishery is strictly Catch and Release.
Captain Kyle has grown up in the Tampa Bay area and specializes in the pursuit of Tarpon all year long. His unbridled passion for Tarpon fishing has led Captain Kyle to meticulously tracking their behaviors and eating habits to ensure his clients have the best chance at hooking a trophy fish. He works hard to not only put his clients on these amazing fish, but also to sustain the species through tagging and research.
Certain times of the year are better than others, but Captain Kyle can arrange an intimate meeting with the Silver King all year long. The size and availability of Tarpon vary with the seasons and certain conditions such as tides and moon phase. Captain Kyle tailors the tackle and approach to ensure that you enjoy an exciting fight. If you’re up to the task, Captain Kyle enjoys targeting bigger fish on lighter tackle as well as fly rods.
Nobody lives and breathes Tarpon fishing like Captain Kyle and nobody has mapped out the Tampa Bay region quite like him. His passion and dedication will deliver the fishing experience of a lifetime!

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;)”
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.”
