Captain Kody Michaels
Captain Kody Michaels...say that name on any fishing dock in Key West and heads will turn. Captain Kody is recognized as one of the most productive light tackle offshore guides on the island today.
Captain Kody was born into a fishing family in southern Florida spending his early childhood in Miami. With time spent fishing professionally in the Bahamas before landing on the island of Key West, Captain Kody's knowledge and experience is nearly limitless of offshore & deep water techniques. Combining this with a vast knowledge and love of free diving and spear fishing in blue water is a potent concoction for a professional sport fishing guide elevating him to the highest levels.
Today Captain Kody is at the helm of a "state of the art" 6 passenger licensed 30' Contender loaded with leading edge technology and the absolute finest fishing and marine equipment on the market. Captain Kody is a hard charging guide with success for his anglers as his number one priority always!
Few guides in Key West today can match his consistent ability to produce quantity and quality fish. Captain Kody has a contagious enthusiasm for sport fishing whether well offshore pursuing behemoth trophy sport fish while trolling or working the bottom on the reef like a mine sweeper...his reputation precedes him as the next generation of legendary guides on the Key West Pro Guides team.

Best fishing w/ Captain Kody we've ever done.
Captain Kody was incredible, can't say enough good things about him. Even before the day of the trip, speaking with Captain Roc (and planning the trip) was great - gave so much info and really a pleasure to talk to. The boat (Reel Contender) was also great and fit the four of us (5 including him) perfectly. Plenty of room, coolers, etc. Captain Kody asked us what we were in the mood to go for and then we cruised out to the reef. He explained everything he was doing and before we knew it we were crushing it out there. We had to take a break at one point because it was just non-stop action. Followed it up after with tons of fresh fish cooked up at the Marina, extra to give away and extra to bring back to our house to grill up later in the week. Perfect Captain, perfect boat, perfect day fishing, doesn't get better than that.
The only negative? Kody set the bar so high with this epic day that unfortunately I think it's only downhill from here going forward for us...
Whole lot of catching.......
I had an incredible day on the water with Captain Kody. My excellent experience started with getting the right trip planned with Captain Roc. He was very patient with my questions and we narrowed my trip down to 3/4 day off-shore. I got paired with Captain Kody. He worked tirelessly all day to make sure we were on fish. I joked several times with him that we weren't fishing, we were catching. He adjusted our plan a couple times and we boated 8 different species. I had very few moments to catch my breath, it was almost constant reeling. At one point, we had more fish hooked than we had bodies to reel. Kody, thank you for a day I will never forget!! I would highly recommend Key West Pro Guides and if you want to go off-shore, Kody is the man to get it done.
We went down to Key West mainly to go to the Dry Tortugas however the trip got cancelled last minute. A huge thank you to captain Roc who set us up with Kody for a full day trip! The weather was beautiful and fishing was awesome. Immediately got on some tuna and within an hour had more that we needed. Also caught a couple nice jack crevalle, Amber jack, and barracuda which were a blast to get to the boat. Moved in a bit and caught some nice mutton snapper as well. Captain Kody was wonderful, very knowledgeable and helpful. Would 100% recommend KWPG and captain Kody if you want some fast paced fishing and a great day on the water.
Annual family trip to Key West with Pro Guide's fishing excursion
OMG I didn't think that pro guides could top our last fishing trip with them last year... but WOW... our trip today was amazing, again.. Captain Kody Micheal's was fantastic. We caught a ton of Mahi, a red snapper, an amberjack, we saw a couple of huge turtles, saw a sun fish and saw some dolphins! Captain Kody was so helpful and patient with all of us. This was a family vacation with my best friend, my 34 year old son and his wife and my 28 year old daughter and her girlfriend. I am so blessed to have been able to share this wonderful adventure with my favorite people! Thank you so much Captain Roc and Captain Kody for making this a very memorable trip!
Day of Wreck and Reef fun
Captain Kody started our day out quickly with a fast hit on a school of Mahi-Mahi. The catch was fantastic. We were successful in catching Mahi-Mahi, Black Fin Tuna, Albacore and Bonita. We had the perfect day with the perfect Captain who knew his way around the area. We would go back to Key West Pro Guides again.
Awesome Fishing Trip
We booked a 1/2 day trip to get out on the water and get in some fishing for a bachelor party. The four of us that went had very little experience deep sea fishing, but Captain Kody seemed to know where to head right off the bat. We began catching amberjacks and red snappers immediately. We were helped as much as we needed. Kody got our lines hooked up and we had at least 2 in the water at all times, more so, he walked us through the best technique to get our fish in without breaking our line or wearing ourselves out. At the end of our trip, we had caught several red snapper, amberjacks, and mutton snapper.. Captain Kody cleaned them up for us, filleted them, and took them to the restaurant next door where we waited with a couple buckets of beer. Fish never tasted so good.
