About the salty knots fishing charters team 

My name is Captain Avery Hughes I am a professional hardworking charter captain born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I have been fishing the waters of Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, and the Gulf of Mexico for 15+ years. At a young age I was brought into offshore and inshore fishing right here in St. Petersburg Florida. I quickly developed a true love and passion for the countless hours and determination it takes to catch a giant trophy fish! We value our clients here at salty knots fishing charters, I promise you, you will receive the highest level of service and a once in a lifetime experience on all of our adventures.
