Salty Jig Charters

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!

    Kids want to fish and you want to make some memories but are unsure if they can last the whole 4 hour trip? This is the trip you need. Two hours isn't enough time to catch a lot of fish for dinner but its plenty of time to get lines wet catching fish for the kiddos to reel in. Loads of fun for the family!

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.
