Captain Mike Kyp


For our next feature boat we head back to into the intracoastal to Adventure Yacht Harbor, where Fire Line Charters helmed by Captain Mike Kyp is docked. Growing Up at Kyp’s Fish Camp Captain Mike Kyp and his twin brother John (Captain - Reel - Axing Fishing Charters LLC), spent their childhood immersed in the Florida water life. Formerly located on Lake Beresford, the camp provided them with a unique upbringing, allowing them to operate boats from a very young age. Captain Mike recalls launching and captaining boats long before he was old enough to drive the truck needed to tow them to the water. This early exposure instilled in him a profound love for the water, shaping his life around various water activities such as fishing, surfing, scuba diving, and spearfishing. His bond with the water has been lifelong, and he is seldom found on dry land.

Fire Line Charters vessel is a 2015 26’ Century, powered by twin Yamaha 200 outboards. She is equipped with state of the art Garmin electronics, outriggers for trolling, and the added bonus of a restroom for comfort during long trips. This well-equipped boat ensures clients have everything they need for an enjoyable day on the water. Captain Mike's commitment to providing the best service, combined with his passion and expertise, makes every charter a memorable adventure for those lucky enough to join him. His dockage at Adventure Yacht Harbor is a perfect one, as the location features an on site restaurant, Boondocks Restaurant, which offers the highly sought after 'cook your catch', allowing you to return to dry land and eat the days haul- effortlessly!

Captain Mike Kyp's experience spans both fresh and saltwater environments, and despite having only being a charter captain for about 5 years, his lifetime of boating experience has made him apt in navigating & fishing the diverse waters of Florida. In addition to his role as a U.S. Coast Guard-Certified Captain, Captain Mike serves as a Battalion Chief for the Orange City Fire Department. The unpredictable nature of firefighting mirrors the ever-changing conditions at sea, where adaptability and quick thinking are a crucial part of the job. This dual career underscores his ability to handle high-pressure situations both on land and at sea.

One of Captain Mike's greatest joys is sharing his love of the water with others, particularly children. Witnessing the excitement of a child catching their first big fish, their smiles stretching from ear to ear, are priceless moments that reinforce his passion for being a charter Captain. He takes pride in creating memorable experiences for his clients, forming lasting friendships, and his dedication to making every trip special is evident in the feedback from his clients. Here you will leave with not just a cooler full of fish but also memories that will surely last a lifetime.

Captain Mike specializes in bottom fishing, which he finds particularly exhilarating due to the element of surprise it brings. There is nothing more exciting than wondering what's on the other end of the line, our packed reefs are known for their dense variety. Will it be a snapper, triggerfish, grouper, or cobia? You'll have to reel to see! This type of fishing allows him to utilize his extensive knowledge of the local waters & marine life, and keeps him passionate about his work. Note that he also offers trolling trips for the wide variety of pelagic species the Ponce Inlet area features such as; kingfish, mahi-mahi, barracuda, tuna, wahoo, sailfish, etc! Captain Mike reminds his prospective anglers that their chances for pelagics dramatically increases with the length of their trip.

Captain Mike Kyp's unique upbringing has laid the foundation for a life spent on (and under) the water, ensuring that every trip he leads is filled with excitement, learning, and unforgettable memories. You are sure to have a blast no matter what trip you choose!
