Reel Water Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in St. Petersburg. Captain Kyle Nifong owns and operates Reel Water Charters, offering daily inshore and near-shore fishing trips in the prolific Tampa Bay area. With his 23’ center console vessel with a maximum passenger capacity of 4, Kyle covers the West central section including Ft. Desoto, St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island Beach as well as the surrounding areas. The boat features a power pole anchoring system and is rigged with a conventional choice of navigational electronics and fishing technology, such as GPS, Fishfinder as well as radio.
Born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Captain Nifong had the fortune of having both his father and his grandfather excited and passionate about the sport of fishing, which he quickly picked up on. Being a professional fishing guide has allowed him to make a career out of doing what he loves, with his obsession for fishing still showing every time he’s on the water. The endless hours Kyle spent exploring the local waterways will help make sure his clients not only enjoy a memorable adventure, but also get a good shot at landing that fish of a lifetime.
Captain Kyle specializes in light tackle and bottom fishing for a variety of inshore and near-shore game fish abundant in the Tampa Bay area. These include Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, Tarpon, Hogfish, Grouper and many other species, depending on the season. Specialty half and full day Tarpon charters are also available if you’re specifically interested in targeting the Silver King.
Captain Nifong prefers live baiting and chumming on his trips, which include all the necessary fishing equipment you’ll need for tackling these waters. Florida fishing licenses are mandatory for all fishermen on board and will be provided by Kyle at no additional charge. After your trip, if you decide to keep the fish you caught, Captain Kyle will be happy to clean and bag the fish for you to take home or to a local restaurant.

Let’s start with “what a great trip!” Capt. Kyle was on time, had an excellent boat, knew his way around on the water, knew how to find fish on what I would consider tough conditions. he had plenty of bait, solid tackle, good conversation, great music and put us on some awesome fish. my buddy Chet and I both had an in shore Grand Slam! Plus we took some fish home filleted by the Captain himself. And Kyle sent us some nice pictures later that evening. I would recommend Kyle Nilfong to anyone looking to spend a fun day on the water and plan to use him again in the future. Reel Water Fishing Charter is the Reel Deal.

We had a wonderful time on our fishing charter with Capt. Kyle. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He took us to several locations to try to find the best fish. His boat is excellent and flew over the water. We would go with him again,

The three of us had a great time on the water with Captain Kyle! He didn’t spend to much time at any one spot, and kept us moving around until we caught some great fish. I would book with him again!
