KA Guide Service Santee (Bass)

Do you want to enjoy a fun and super relaxing day fishing on the Santee Cooper Lakes? KA Guide Service is ready to make that happen!

Capt. Kyle is a full-time Tournament Bass angler that travels all over the country chasing Largemouth Bass on the Bassmaster trail. There is no better lake he knows than Santee Cooper and its surrounding waters. Santee Cooper is ranked in the top 5 bass lakes in the country almost every year for the past decade for prime reasons. It takes over 25 lb of Bass (5 fish) to win any tournament on the lake. The state record largemouth of 16lb 2oz was caught on Santee. 8 hours on the boat with Capt. Kyle will be a guaranteed fun adventure. From tons of different techniques and up-to-date equipment, you will have everything you need to catch a trophy, Bass.

Capt. Kyle’s biggest goal on each trip is to have a great time, learn something new, and become a better angler at the end of the trip. Of course the chance of catching that 6+ lb fish will be a memory that lasts a lifetime. From young children to adults KA Guide Service will do everything it can to put you on bass.

These rivers are at their peak in the summertime. 20+ fish days are very common with still the chance to catch that giant everyone dreams about. Come beat the heat and lets go catch some river fish this summer!

USCG certified Captain Kyle is a native of Ridgeville, SC. He might be young but has spent his entire life fishing out on Santee Cooper, chasing multiple species. As a full time professional fisherman, he fishes all 9 of the Bassmaster Opens across the country, looking to qualify for the elite series and Bassmaster Classic. When he is home from the Tournament circuit, he loves to chase big Catfish that live in Santee Cooper lakes. Since graduating college, he knew that taking customers out fishing is what he wanted to do for a living.
