With over twenty different species of fish inhabiting our local waters annually, it’s no wonder why anglers travel from all over the “World” to try their luck at a fishing experience of a lifetime. All anglers no matter their experience or skill level are welcome and encouraged to share a day out on the water with Reel Florida Fishing Charters.
The Nature Coast’s Scallop Season has been a fan favorite for decades. This under water Easter egg hunt is a family friendly activity that provides children and adults with hours of exciting fun. For a true Nature Coast experience checkout our VIP scallop trip that includes a day of scalloping and a manatee swim.
Crystal River is home to the “WORLDS” largest population of the endangered West Indian Manatee. It’s also the only destination in the United States that permits swimming with these gentle giants. Consider exploring the pristine waters of Florida’s Nature Coast with a Manatee snorkel tour.

My wife and I have been fishing with Kyle out of Crystal River and Homosassa for several years. Besides always putting us on the fish, his outgoing personality and patience make fishing with Capt. Kyle a real pleasure. We would highly recommend him to anybody interested in fishing the Nature Coast.

If you want to learn the joys of fly fishing or you are already converted, Kyle’s experience and knowledge will still impress even the most skillful. The variety and number of fish in the area is quite surprising. If you want numbers then 20 to 30 fish a day is reasonable. If trophy fish is your goal Kyle can put you on them.

I have hunted and fished from Alaska to New Zealand and places in between, Captain Kyle is without a doubt the best fishing guide I have ever been with. We had an exceptional day on the water and this is due to Captain Kyles, knowledge of the waters, fishing tactics and willingness to teach the skills necessary to catch the fish.

Another Great day on the water with Captain Kyle. We spent the morning fishing as Kyle does not disappoint. He had us on fish all morning and we managed to landed numerous Redfish and Trout all before our afternoon of scalloping. Our afternoon of snorkeling for scallops was equally as successful and we all had a blast. We highly recommend him and will return to fish and scallop with him again in the near future.
– Peter Hough, Charlotte, NC
I cannot recommend Captain Kyle Messier enough. He is extremely pleasant and patient but most importantly he knows where to find the fish!! My family and I had an excellent time fishing with him, and catching 10 different varieties of fish (I actually lost count of the total numbers of fish caught) was a blast. If you want to fish in the Crystal River area, Captain Kyle is the guide for you.
