About Salty Gillz Fishing Charters

Salty Gillz Fishing Charters is owned and ran by Captain Matthew Salgado whom is a Full time fishing Guide. He runs flats and bay fishing trips in the Tampa Bay and the surrounding parts such as Clearwater, St Petersburg, Saftey Harbor, and Oldsmar areas. Usually, flats fishing catches consist of redfish, trout, and snook. Many species are more prevalent depending on the weather and season. Some of the other species we see most frequently while bay fishing in the area includes Tarpon, Cobia, Shark, Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, Pompano, Sheepshead, Triple Tail, and Flounder. Tampa Bay has some of the best flats fishing to offer because of its clear water in which it receives from off the Gulf of Mexico. This makes Tampa and its surrounding areas, such as St. Petersburg, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Ruskin, and Clearwater, Florida a wonder place to fish with its numerous estuaries and endless mangrove lines. No matter which Charter you pick, Salty Gillz is sure to provide you with a fun fishing adventure you’ll never forget!

Loved It

Captain Matt gave us an amazing experience of what the backcountry has to offer, as well as the flats. Right off the bat, he put us on a ton of snook and redfish which lasted through the entire trip. Great captain, a very down to earth guy. Can’t wait to book another trip!

What an amazing day on the water. Many people will fish all their lives and still not experince a day of redfish action like this on Tampa Bay.

Awesome Day

Captain Matthew Salgado will put you on the fish and is a class act. Our Snook and Reds probably totaled 25 between 3 people. Thank you Salty Gillz!

Fun for Everyone

Salty Gillz Charters was FABULOUS! I knew nothing about fishing beforehand. I learned so much, caught a lot of fish, and had lots of fun with the family!
