Welcome to Salted Flats Fly Fishing your #1 inshore fly fishing guide service based out of Apalachicola, FL and New Orleans, LA.
Salted Flats Fly Fishing spends the fall and winter months of September through mid March fishing the famed Biloxi Marsh just 45 minutes from Bourbon St. and downtown New Orleans targeting monster Redfish and Black Drum up to 50 pounds. The Louisiana Marsh is a very special and rare fishery in that you can sight fish to huge Bull Redfish and Black Drum year round where most shallow water fisheries become too cold in the winter months to hold fish. During these months the Marsh clears to a Gin clear color over dark soft bottom as well as light sandy bottom making it ideal for targeting these giants. Come join Salted Flats Fly Fishing for unforgettable days in this magical vast place where you will get away from it all and rarely see another skiff all day. Then retire to New Orleans for some culture and as everybody knows some of the best food on the planet.
From May 1st to early August Salted Flats Fly Fishing relocates to the Panhandle of Florida’s Forgotten Coast to target giant 100 + pound Tarpon. These prehistoric monsters have been making a migration around the Gulf of Mexico for millions of years and I have found a quiet little place where the big mature Tarpon flow through in the summer months. If you have never experienced first hand to the sighting, making the cast, then feeding, and jumping one these beasts then this is an experience worth looking into. Tarpon are widely considered the apex of inshore sport fishing, especially on the fly. If you have experienced the aerobatics and sheer power of the Silver King then you know how exciting these beautiful fish are and I can promise where we fish is second to none for big fish, and lot’s of them.
Salted Flats Fly Fishing caters to the beginner fly fisherman all the way to the most experienced anglers. Our mission is to provide our clients of any skill level with a day on the water stocked full of lasting memories and lifetime friendships leaving them craving more bow time.
