Welcome to the town of Steinhatchee and discover the fishing potential of their local flats and general area. When you swing by be sure to check with the Salt Obsession Fishing Co. and they will hook you up with a fishing trip. You’ll be under the guidance of Captain Isaac Leon and he’ll show you around and point you to the best fishing spots.

You’ll be cruising the local waters on board the Pathfinder, bay boat model from 2008. It is 20’ and it can easily navigate shallow flats as well as the nearshore spots. The boat is fitted with a single Yamaha engine that can go up to 51 kn. You’ll be going from one fishing spot to another in no time. For a more tactful approach, a wireless trolling motor is also available.

This charter covers flats locations along with the inshore and nearshore area. The fish bites all year round, and you can encounter Cobia, Redfish, and the delicious Flounder. From July till the end of September you can even go scalloping. When it comes to fishing techniques, you can test your skills in light tackle, bottom fishing, and spinning.

Families will be glad to know children are welcome. Your trip includes the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and bait. What’s more, the charter covers your Florida fishing license. For your greater experience, the crew offers refreshments, and snorkeling equipment is available. If you manage to catch some fish you can keep it and the crew will help you out with cleaning and bagging.

Explore the local area of Steinhatchee town and get yourself the chance to stock up your fridge with some delicious fish. Don’t miss out and contact Salt Obsession Fishing Co.

I was born and raised In South East Florida. From a young age I was quick to learn and be successful in the amazing offshore fishing there. In high school I routinely completed and placed in large offshore tournaments. I was blessed to receive the opportunity to play football for the University of Alabama for several years. In 2015 after becoming injured I transferred to the University of Florida where I finished my degree. This is when I was introduced to the excellent fisheries that the big bend of Florida offers. I carry that same drive that I had when playing sports at such a high level to be the best I can be. I work hard to make sure my clients have an unforgettable time on the water.
