Salty Jig Charters

105 Hogtown Bayou Lane
Santa Rosa Beach FL, United States

Salty Jig Charters invites anglers, fishers, families, and friends to hop on! Join Captain Sloan on a quest for some hefty fish that live in the waters of Hogtown Bayou. Florida boasts some of the most lush waters just teeming with fish all year round. This bayou is no exception - a variety of fish to satiate any palate.

Salty Jig Charters is run by Captain Sloan 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 on a fun day out. He can accommodate groups of up to five 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.

Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Cobia, Jacks and Snapper are just some of the fish that bite. 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, and shades. The licence 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!

About the Captain

Sloan Smith
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, United States
Member since June 2016
Simply put, Captain Sloan has been preparing for what he does ever since he was a kid. His father started taking him out on the water when he was three, and from then on, passion for fishing just grew stronger. Behind the wheel of his boat he takes people on fishing trips, and puts all his passion into helping them land nice fish and have fun while doing it.

Thank you Marty, cant wait to take your family out again.  A lot of our guests enjoy the bait catching experience as it usually doesn’t take very long and the skill required if such fun to watch. (we also add a little time to the trip if bait isn’t found before boarding)  When you come back we will make sure the live well will be full and ready to slay them when you board :)

We had a great time! Capt. Sloan is very informative, friendly, and patient. We had 2 adults and 3 children 11-13 yrs old and everyone caught good sized fish; redfish, sailcat, alligator gar. We were looking for bigger redfish keepers and Capt. Sloan took us to all the right spots but they just weren’t biting for us. Even so, it was a good day and we look forward to doing it again!
