Salty Jig Charters invites new anglers, fishing fanatics, families, and friends to come aboard! Join Captain Sloan Smith on a quest for some of the hefty fish that inhabit the waters of Hogtown Bayou. This part of Florida boasts some lush waters, which are teeming with world-famous species all year round. The bayou is no exception, and you’ll find a variety of fish to satiate any palate!

Salty Jig Charters is run by Capt. Sloan, who’s been out on the water since his childhood days. Now, he loves stepping behind the wheel of his 20’ Cape Horn center console to take guests of different skill levels on a fun day out. He can accommodate groups of up to 4 people, be it families with youngsters or friends who want to try out fishing for the first time.

His boat is equipped with top-of-the-line gadgets that make for a smooth journey. There’s a whole host of top-quality navigational gear to help track down the fish, and a flybridge to better scout the area. The vessel is also decked out with a VHF radio, an icebox and a live bait tank filled with shrimp, pinfish, and menhaden.

These waters are famous for being home to some Floridian favorites: Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Cobia, Jacks, and Snapper are just some of the fish that you’ll find biting here. This fishery is year-round and your captain reflects this in the trips he offers, but some species are seasonal. Still, Captain Sloan will put his best efforts into finding you fish to catch!

You’ll be supplied with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. It’s up to you to choose the technique you want to try, and you 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 some of the huge fish that swim nearby.

Your fishing license is already taken care of, so grab some snacks and drinks, and don’t forget to bring a camera. You’ll want to capture the excitement when the drag starts screaming aboard Salty Jig Charters!

Simply put, Captain Sloan has been preparing for life as a charter captain ever since he was a kid. His father started taking him out on the water when he was 3 years old, and from then on, his passion for fishing just grew stronger. He loves nothing more than being behind the wheel of his boat, guiding people on fishing trips, and puts all his passion into helping them land some prized fish and having fun while doing it!
