Salty Veins Charters
Captain Austin Nikkola of Salty Veins Charters is a Jacksonville, Florida native now living and operating out of Key West. He has a profound appreciation of the area’s beauty, with the Atlantic and the Gulf in his backyard. The captain has been fishing these plentiful waters for more than 30 years and manufacturing fishing lures for over 20.
Captain Austin started Salty Veins because he didn’t want to put up with the low quality of most of the bucktail jigs – he decided to start producing handmade lures that are reliable and durable. His main goal is to provide his customers with a premier fishing experience and only the best equipment. There’s nothing better for him than seeing a customer catching a fish with the help of his lures.
Your fishing adventure will take place aboard a 26’ SeaVee center console, powered by twin 250 HP Mercury engines. It can cater to up to 6 anglers. The vessel was fully overhauled in 2018 so you can expect to see only the latest in marine electronics and safety gear. You’ll also find outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, and an ice-box on board.
On shorter trips, you’ll be focusing on catching Yellowtail, Grouper, Amberjack, Mutton Snapper, and more. In addition to the best inshore and offshore fisheries, the captain will also show you the hottest spots at reefs and wrecks.
The charter will cover all the gear, including Shimano and custom Esky rods, live bait, and lures. Fishing licenses, drinks, and even catch cleaning are also available free of charge. Please note that 15-20% tips are greatly appreciated.
Salty Veins Charters will make sure your time on the water is safe, and most importantly, unforgettably fun!
