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.
I am a fishing guide, working to catch fish in the Tampa Bay Area. I mainly use artificial lures to catch fish. You might see many types of wildlife, birds, sharks, manatees, dolphins and fish.
