Cpt Matt has the perfect demeanor for a charter fishing guide - he was very patient with me and my son, extremely knowledgeable of local game species, and able to anticipate his fishing clients' needs. He was quite alert and put us onto tarpon and sharks early on our trip. While moving to another spot that afternoon - Matt spotted a school of fish and he quickly decided to put us onto them as well. My son boated a handsome jack crevalle that put up a stubborn fight. Many skippers would have passed right by them without even thinking twice. Things slowed down and Matt kept an eagle eye open for big game fish. We had hooked and lost several large sharks - finally, he got my son hooked up on a 80 lb blacktip that gave my boy a great workout. It was a beautiful fish! My son is still thumping his chest.
I spoke with Capt. Russ Shirley several times on the phone prior to booking a fly fishing trip with Salty Fly Charters. Capt. Russ was very accommodating in making arrangements to spend a day on the water in St. Petersburg in September 2011. He supplied all of the fishing gear so I did not have to which made things easier with air travel. I have been fishing/fly fishing all my life, but this was my first time saltwater fly fishing. He was extremely helpful in providing instructions/tips with casting, selection of flies, searching for fish, and saltwater fishing. Capt. Russ was as much a teacher of the sport of saltwater fly fishing as he was a guide. I had a great time and I am planning on another trip with Salty Fly Charters.
Capt Eric has never disappointed! He is very patient, especially with my 6 year old! She loves to fish but doesn't always stay focused, he makes it fun and challenges her! She's reeled in bigger fish on his boat than a lot of grown men! You will be happy you spent the day with capt Eric! He's worth every penny!
Great guide for inshore fishing. We caught snook,redfish,and flounder.You will have a good fishing experience with captain Chris,and all the gear is furnished.
My family and I had a great time fishing with Tom! He told us upfront when we arrived that the fishing had been tough the past few days but he would do his best to get us on some fish. That is just what he did, we caught snook, trout, red fish and some jacks. If you are looking for a professional guide who knows the bay area and will put you on some fish, Tom and Renegade charters is the way to go. I plan to fish with him again and pursue some Tarpon!
Very professional!!! Captain William Burbach showed us the beautiful backcountry of the Florida flats fisheries. Captured Beautiful memories and fish with my family for a lifetimes of story’s to share time and time again. I’d definitely come back and choose captain William Burbach again to be my fishing guide!
I wanted to go out fishing but had no knowledge of fishing in this area. I called Captain Tim and he took me out and we had a great day! We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about fishing in the gulf. I highly recommend calling Tim!

Join Dave Loger, the only exclusive paddle-fly fishing guide on West Coast Florida. Dave will guide you every step of the way on some of the most pristine waters of South West Florida in Boca Grande, Placida, Englewood and Punta Gorda. As our name implies, your fly fishing adventure is propelled using only paddle or push pole power and its silent attributes. A fight with an inshore brawler like a redfish usually begins with an exciting hook-up in skinny water, then the "canoe sleigh ride". Snook blasting flies on the beach or underneath the dock lights at night are also an experience we specialize in. At the end of the fight, you have both hands full of fish and a picture to prove it!
Placing a smile on peoples faces when they are catching fish!
