Salt Addiction Charters

1110 Riverside Drive
Steinhatchee FL, United States

Salt Addiction Charters is based in Steinhatchee, Florida. The company is run and operated by Captain Mike, a courteous guide, who knows the area like the back of his hand. He works hard to provide the most exciting, eventful, and memorable experience to all his guests. A day out on the pristine grass flats of the Deadman’s Bay area with the Captain and his Salt Addiction Charters is a dream come true for adventurous anglers.

Enjoy a ride with Captain Mike aboard a spacious 24-foot Proline “Old Pro” boat, which comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha 4 stroke engine. Built specifically for the vast grass flats areas in 1970, the vessel was restored in 2015 and is ideal for a smooth ride to the skinny waters. It is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio to aid your search for the fish. The boat is kept in a private reserved slip at River Haven Marina.

Salt Addiction Charters offers fishing trips for up to four anglers and scalloping trips for up to six. During your adventure, most fishing will be done casting artificial lures, although, at certain times of the year, live or natural baits will be added to the arsenal as well.

Trout and Redfish are the two main species that will be targeted, but depending on the season, your catch may also include Flounder, Cobia, Black Seabass, Blacktip Shark, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and many others. It isn’t uncommon to catch 10 or more different species of fish in one day, and a lot of them can put a great fight. The catch will depend on your experience and what is biting.

Your trip with Salt Addiction Charters will include your fishing licenses, rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. You can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks with you. For the scalloping trip, you will need to bring your personal snorkeling gear.

Captain Mike treated us like we were on a college level fishing expedition.  He answered all of our questions and discussed topics from gulf fishing and environmental threats to life habits of all of the fish.  Very enjoyable trip for me and my two college aged sons.  He even stopped at a sand bar to go swimming and find “sand dollars”.
