About Captain Matt

Captain Matthew Salgado is a licensed and insured fisherman who charters out of Tampa. He is a fourth generation angler. He grew up fishing with his family and knows the scene like it’s his own backyard. Although he enjoys many different styles of fishing, you can usually find him using a wide array of artificials in the backcountry and flats areas. Redfish, snook, and trout are his specialties.

Captain Matt has competed in numerous redfish tournaments over the past eight years, both live bait and artificial series.  He can be your guide to the fish if you’re just new to the area. He can also be your teacher if you are new to fishing altogether.

Salty Gillz Charters are run out of a 2110 Action Craft Coastal Bay. The boat is fully equipped for up to four anglers to fish comfortably as Captain Matt uses the tower to scope out the fish.
