Wasn’t sure what to expect as I had three “novices” and my experience was all fresh water stream and lake fishing. What we got was a full day and an immense amount of knowledge. Capt. Z. was an excellent teacher and very attentive to all as they began to learn how to first operate the equipment and then understand the strategy around fishing this part of the world. And to our surprise he cleaned all the fish at the end of the day. Just an amazing day and an experience all who are interested in fishing need to have. To those who see this and are considering a trip…..if you are fortunate enough to have Salt Face Charters…you will not be disappointed…:)

Mike had the boat at the dock at 8 am sharp ready to go. He supplied ice, license, rods and reels and well over a hundred fresh shrimp. We stated at the Gulf end of the river and then went out to the rocks and ended the day up in the Mangrove islands.  We killed the fish. Mike’s knowledge and of where the fish were going to be paid off in over 14 slot fish and dozens of more caught and released. We ended up the day in well over 6o fish caught and released. We caught mackerel, grouper, sea trout, blow fish, lady fish and lost a massive Snook. My son had so much fun he is already planning a fishing trip with his two brothers. It was well worth the charter.
