Salty Gillz Fishing Charters

North Side SR 60
Tampa FL, United States

If you are looking for a relaxing day out on the water with your family and friends or want to land that trophy fish, Salty Gillz Fishing Charters will get you where you need to be.

This is a family-friendly company that offers bay and flats fishing trips in the Tampa Bay Area. Explore the shallow waters and get your hands on Redfish, Trout, and Snook. The list of your potential catches will depend on the season. You may also encounter Tarpon, Cobia, Shark, Snapper, Grouper, and Flounder among other species in the bay.

Whether you are a local resident or a visitor from out of town, there is a trip for you. All you have to do is hop onboard a 22’ Action Craft center console, a clean, seaworthy fishing vessel. This boat comes powered by a 200 HP Mercury engine and has plenty of room for up to 4 anglers.

The vessel is outfitted with modern navigational and fishfinding electronics, as well as a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride and a livewell filled with bait to make sure no fish can resist your hooks.

Your trip will include all the necessary gear, tackle, bait, lures, and fishing licenses. A complimentary fish cleaning service will also be available at the end of the trip.

Matt knows where to find the fish! My two teen sons and I enjoyed a morning catching snook and reds with Matt. He related very well with my sons and was patient with a pathetic old fart like me(lol). My children commented his tackle was better than the charter we did with a different captain. He he put plenty of bait and knew where to find the big ones. I also enjoyed matts excitment when we hooked a big one. Professional, and a cool dude.  We will be back.
