Loaded Down Sport Fishing

Head out on some of the most productive grounds off the coast of Madeira Beach, and explore the Gulf of Mexico with Loaded Down Sport Fishing! Captain Kyle Applefield is a third-generation Florida fisherman, so he’ll take you to all the secret honey holes.

Just hop aboard his 35’ custom center console boat and get ready for the action. The twin 250 HP Yamaha engines will power you to the hottest grounds. There is also an ice-box to keep your catch fresh during the day and the boat’s live well is loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible.

Capt. Kyle will prepare all the fishing equipment you’ll need – rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait! If you want to take your catch home and have a delicious meal upon your return, he’ll be more than happy to clean and fillet your fish.

You’ll go fishing nearshore and far out. Just as you step aboard, the first mate will hook your bait and then it’s fish on! Your main target will be Tarpon, Snapper, Wahoo, Mackerel, Cobia, Grouper, Barracuda, Amberjack… and the list just keeps going!

The crew offers premier nearshore and offshore fishing in Madeira Beach for you, your family and friends. Whether you are a beginner who wants to catch their first saltwater fish, or a serious angler looking for trophy fish, you have found the right place.
