Fishing With Matt – Lake Tarpon

Come visit Tarpon Springs and join Fishing With Matt for a memorable angling experience on the water. Your guide is Captain Matt Kyle, a friendly and skilled angler who’ll guide you along the waters of Lake Tarpon and nearby rivers as you search for lovely freshwater species. Join him and experience the beauties of this part of Florida.

Your journey starts on a restored 19’ Triton bass boat that can accommodate 2 guests. The boat’s powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine and will quickly take you to the fish. Its navigation gear includes modern GPS and touch screen fishfinders. The onboard equipment comprises shallow water anchors, a fighting chair, wireless trolling motor, livewell, and an ice-box. There’s even a portable Bluetooth speaker you can use.

Lake Tarpon and the rivers offer a fine choice of fish to catch. You can target Largemouth Bass, Tarpon, and Snook. You’ll catch them by bottom fishing using light and heavy tackle. Captain Matt loves having a family atmosphere on his boat, so feel free to bring your kids along and have a wonderful day in nature together. The fish you catch is yours to keep, but you can release it if you wish.

The captain will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, and water. Just pack your licenses and some food before you depart and you’ll be set to go.

Visit Lake Tarpon and have a wonderful fishing experience of the waters of Florida!

Captain Matt started just simply pond fishing for Largemouth Bass. The love for pond fishing grew into buying his first boat which led to him being out on the water almost every weekend and some weekdays. He then started to take people out and teach them the ropes of fishing. He loves to teach the younger generation the sport of bass fishing.
