Guided by Kyle Harmon
Hello, I am Captain Kyle and will be your guide and mate on the trips you book. I like to deal with customers personally, so I choose not to have a mate or second captain unless requested. When I moved to Pine Island many years ago, I worked on a commercial Grouper boat out of Fort Myers beach. I fished with Capt Jack, one of the pioneers in the area of commercial fishing. We would load up on his 40ft trawler with ice, bait, gear, and head out. We would sometimes be gone for several days at a time. When we would head out, our goal was thousands of pounds of fish to sell to the market. Commercial fishing was fun and a lot of hard work, I have many memories during those times. Now I have a family and days on the water is not an option anymore. I have always loved watching others enjoy the sport of fishing so becoming a guide was an easy transition. With the experience and knowledge of commercial fishing, I gathered years of information about the area and secret locations out in the gulf. I also spend my personal time time chasing fish with extensive time in the Bahamas, Key West, Venice Lousiana, east coast of Florida, and the Dominican Republic. I have caught about every fish on anyones bucket list. At this point its about getting bigger and better for my personal goals. I am asked a lot why I became a charter guide, my answer is, I honestly enjoy sharing my knowledge about Fishing. The number one reason for why I guide is the enjoyment I receive when I watch someone land a trophy. Its a moment you will hold onto for a lifetime!!
The bottom fishing off of SW Florida can be described as nothing short of excellent. The only downside to the fishing on this coast is you need to make longer runs to get to the fishy waters. It is my opinion that the quality of fish increases dramatically the further you go out. With this said, a good quantity of fish can be caught on all trips, but the quality is the variable. For your best chance at landing a trophy, read through the blurbs to set the right expectations and select the right trip for your goals. This is a nice trip to catch some fish and bring a few home to eat. We will catch keeper sized grouper on this trip. This is a nice moderate trip if you want to catch keeper fish but not be out all day. We usually catch enough fish for a good fish fry. Primary targets include Red Grouper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper & Vermillion Snapper. Read More
