Chaotic Guide Services

Whether it’s your first or hundredth time on the water, you can’t go wrong with Chaotic Guide Services. Capt. Cyler is a native fisherman who is more than familiar with the best spots in Placida, Boca Grande, and the surrounding waters. Book a trip and check it out yourself!

Capt. Cyler offers incredible summertime live bait inshore fishing for Redfish, Soon, Trout, and Tarpon. These trips run from Placida and are great for anglers of all skill levels and expertise. During the winter months, you can stalk amazing tailing Redfish on the beautiful waters of Boca Grande. The opportunities abound!

Your trip will take place aboard a 23’ Dorado bay boat, fresh on the water in 2007. This spacious vessel can take up to 4 anglers to fish in comfort and style. Cruising at a top speed of 34 knots thanks to its 300 HP Yamaha engine, the boat can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

There is a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio to build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding. A wireless trolling motor is fitted on board for a quiet ride and an ice-box is there to keep your catch fresh during the day. Plus, there is a livewell to make sure nothing resists your hooks.

The trips with Chaotic Guide Services are all-inclusive; you will only need to bring your own food and drinks.

Captain Cyler McVay is the owner and operator of Chaotic Guide Service. Blessed with an innate sense and passion for fishing, Cyler has been exploring the Gasparilla Sound area since he was 3 years old. He was introduced to fishing by his dad and granddad; every time they went out without him, Cyler could be found fussing the canals on LGI all day long. He spent every minute learning the patterns and techniques and when most teenagers were asking for a car when they turned 16, Cyler asked for a boat.
