fishingRed Hot Fishing Charters with Capt. Kyle Messier is a full-time, year-round flats fishing guide service located in heart of Florida's Nature Coast. Citrus County otherwise known as the Nature Coast is home to the Homosassa, Crystal River, Withlacoochee and Salt Rivers - all of which provide a number of World Class fishing opportunities for over 20+ different fish species year round. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Shark, Grouper, Tarpon, Tripletail, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and Bonita are just a few of the inshore species of fish that we target daily during a Crystal River fishing charter. Each fish species offers anglers unique fishing opportunities both in fighting styles as well as in the areas in which we pursue these highly sought after game fish.

A
Crystal River Florida fishing charter is a remarkable fishing experience mostly because of the areas fished, the scenery provided and the different types of fish targeted on any giving day. The Gin clear flats and mazes of creeks, cuts and coves are home to many of the local species, making sight casting to fish an easy and exciting test of an anglers ability. Spin Casting, Tossing Lures and Throwing Flies are just a few of our specialties. And it's not uncommon to try all of them during a day out on the water.

Stalking Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon are my specialties, and opportunities to catch all three can occur on any giving day. Each month brings a variety of angling opportunities for the skilled as well as the novice angler but NO mater what your skill level, a trip can be customized to fit your specific angling adventure. The best part about booking a fishing charter with Red Hot Fishing Charters is the fact that we don't fish spots, we fish areas which means that your lines will spend a majority of their day in the water instead of in the boat. Areas of unspoiled rocky coves, gin clear flats, and nearshore rocks, wrecks and reefs can all be fished within a day. Thus, allowing the angler many opportunities for catching a variety of species.

Novice anglers, experienced anglers, women and children are all welcome and encouraged. So, if long drag screaming runs are what you've been craving, call Red Hot Fishing Charters today. We are in the fishing memories business.

About the Captain


fishingHi I am Captain Kyle Messier. As a native to the area I have been extremely blessed to have the beautiful waters of the Crystal River, Ozello, and Homosassa all in my back yard. Living and growing up on the water over the years has provided me with many great memories and experiences which I enjoy sharing with my clients on a daily basis. My interesting experiences and vast knowledge of the area, local wildlife and the in's and outâ's of many of the areas secret creeks, coves and bayou's make me one of the more dynamic fishing guides along the Nature Coast.

I love showing off the Nature coast, teaching men, women and children new fishing techniques and more or less making sure my clients enjoy their day on the River. And that is what you get every time you step foot in my customized Sundance Skiff or Maverick HPX-T (Shallow Water Machine) a passionate captain whose love is the water and whose job is to cater to his clients.

Because of my vast experiences and knowledge of different areas, fish and their patterns I myself and all of my charters fish for over 20 different species of fish day in and day out. My specialties include (but are not limited to) Sight fishing for Redfish, Tarpon, and Tripletail, Fly Fishing for World Class Tarpon, Plugging for Grouper and Cobia, and just CATCHING!!! I am also an ORVIS endorsed fly fishing guide and I extremely enjoy teaching the art and skill of fly fishing to new and experienced fly fishermen/women.

Crystal River and Homosassa Fishing Rates

fishingAll fishing charters are customized based upon the types of fishing opportunities available and the type of fishing requested by the client. The Crystal River, Ozello and Homosassa areas offer a variety of different angling opportunities, mainly due to the vast amounts of unspoiled back county islands and crystal clear flats. Many species can be targeted during a day of fishing with Red Hot Fishing Charters. The calm cool mornings could be spend casting for hefty gator Trout around grass flats and deep pot holes or even casting spoons to tailing Redfish in a foot of gin clear water. And our afternoons could be just as exciting as we pursue Cobia and Sharks on some of the many local structures sprinkled through out the Gulf. What ever fish we encounter, I can assure you that every customer leaves with a fishing memory that will be etched in their minds forever.
