Enjoy your fishing trip with Saltshaker Charters aboard a 27-ft Albin boat, which comes powered by a quiet and dependable 210 HP Volvo Turbo Diesel.

It is fully equipped with navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a radar, and a fish finder. This spacious boat is fitted with a flybridge to aid your search for the fish, a fighting chair for those who are up to a challenge, a live bait tank, and outriggers for a professional fishing experience. The boat provides comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers (or up to 1100 lbs combined weight) and inside, there is a toilet, a shower, a kitchen, and a bed. What else is needed when spending your day on the water?

On your day out with Saltshaker Charters, you will always have a pole ready to land the big ones. The trips are four to twelve hours, so any angler could find a suitable package. Whether you want to spend your day trolling and bottom fishing nearshore or head further offshore, fish the wrecks and reefs – the Captain will accommodate your every need.

Your targeted species will include Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, and many more depending on the season and what is biting.

A trip with Saltshaker Charters comes inclusive with lures, gear, tackle, and live bait when available. You won’t have to worry about purchasing the fishing licenses – the Captain will do it for you. As well as that, feel free to bring your own food and drinks on board if you wish.

Member since March 2017
Captain Bryan Clackler was born a fisherman. He grew up in Alabama, where he used to fish and hunt almost every day: there were always ponds, rivers, and creeks to explore. For Bryan, catching fish and finding new places was never boring. But it wasn’t until he felt the taste of saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico – Captain Bryan was hooked and, when he was 20, he moved to Panama City Beach and started a successful charter business. With an excellent reputation and vast knowledge, Bryan has been guiding his friends and clients for over a decade.
