Salty Jig Charters invites anglers, families, and friends to hop onboard and get the lines wet. Join Captain Sloan on a quest for some hefty fish that live in the waters of Tampa Bay. Florida boasts some of the most lush waters just teeming with fish all year round. Tampa Bay is no exception - a variety of fish to satiate any palate.
Salty Jig Charters is run by Captain Sloan Smith who’s been out on the water since his childhood days. Now behind the wheel of his 20’ Cape Horn center console, he takes people of different skillsets out on the endless flats and backwaters for the most exciting inshore action you can imagine. He can accommodate groups of up to four people, be it families with youngsters or friends who want to try out fishing.
His boat is equipped with top-of-the-line gadgets that make steering atop waters smooth. The navigational gear is there to help track down the fish, and a flybridge to better scout the area. It also has a VHF radio, an ice box and a live bait tank filled with shrimp, pinfish and menhaden.
Once you step onboard, you’ll be supplied with rods, reels and tackle, lures and live bait. From then on, it’s up to you to choose the technique you want to try, and can jig, pop, spin and troll as much as you like. Light tackle is also an option, especially if you want to test your grip against the big ones that swim nearby.
Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tripletail, Tarpon, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Sheepshead, Shark and Snapper are just some of the fish that bite, but target fish depend on the season. The charter runs year round, but do check the calendar before you head out. Still, Captain Sloan will put his best efforts in finding you fish to catch.
Grab snacks, drinks, light clothes, shade and sunscreen. The fishing license is already taken care of, so you can get down to business. Bring a camera - you will want to capture the excitement when the drag starts screaming!
