Here Is The Official Salt Strong Music Video:”Fishing In Our Soul”

Published on October 14, 2015 under Fishing FUN, Inshore Fishing, Salt Strong

fishing in our soul salt strong

Are you Salt Strong?

I guess I should start off by telling you what makes a person Salt Strong…

But let me first warn you, just because you take a trip to the beach once a year doesn’t mean you are Salt Strong…

So what is Salt Strong?

  • Salt Strong stands for Family, Freedom, & Fishing…
  • Where the love and passion for being on or near the water with a fishing rod in your hand is enough to make you forget about everything else going on in your life…
  • When you feel more at home on a boat, kayak, paddleboard than you do a car…
  • When you still get goosebumps going over a bridge and seeing saltwater on either side of you…
  • When your ears perk up every time you hear someone telling a fishing story…
  • When you dream about leaving your job to go fishing…
  • And when you know that you have “Fishing in your Soul…”

That’s when you know you are Salt Strong.

And if you believe this describes you, then please do the following 2 things (watch the video and get 2 FREE Salt Strong decals):

And we hope you enjoyed the “Fishing In Our Soul” music video.

The lyrics to this amazing fishing song were originally written by Capt. John Gunter of Off the Hook Charters (see his fishing charter website here), and the amazing videography was done by Patrick Rhea of LivitFilms and Nick Shirghio of Nick Shirghio Photography.

The entire video was filmed in and around the Boca Grande and Little Gasparilla Island area in record time (a day and a half to film an entire music video).

Note: 100% of the fish shown in the video were caught on artificial lures using the strategies/techniques that are taught in our private Inshore Slammer course.

We hope you enjoyed watching the video as much as we did filming it.

Big thanks to Sara Michaels at 97 Country for helping put all of this together. You rock girl!

P.S. – If you think your friends would like this, please Tag them or Share this with them. It would mean a lot to me. Pa-POW! Fish On!

First off, I read the entire open letter to PETA !!!!
Reminds me of the movie Rocy when he fought Apollo creed, first and second fight. Apollo was confident and had a big mouth and opinion of himself. Yet who won ? That’s right Rocky because he went the distance. Your fishermen’s ROCKY !!
Second; I fully enjoyed the video and song and will download it or buy it. I have a question Salt Strong , is that only about fishing salt water? You mention red fish, snook , flounder , and if i remember trout.
We don’t get to travel . we fish fresh water in Illinois, Wisconsin, possible Minnesota. We LOVE fishing , it’s in our blood. But we fish for fresh water fish and LARGE MOUTH BASS being number 1. Oh in short , my wife join me up with north american fisherman club ( LIFETIME Membership) i received one season of fishing magazine’s then they just Dumped all their thousands of members without a word. Phone number would not work. It was all over the internet! And i wanted so seriously to believe. The organization BASS wants us to join but after our experience with north american fishing club we stop believing.
Your truly

Wish my grandad was still here to hear that song, bought me my first rod when I was four, took me fishing that afternoon and caught my first trout, which, although over the legal limit was “too small to kill”, I’m now in Australia taking my grandkids fishing and making them put fish back. Fishing really does teach you values. How do I post a picture, I’m technologically challenged!

I enjoyed the song very much, I grew up on Gasparilla Island, town Boca Grande, back in the 30’s to 50’s, fished the phosphate docks, in my Dads boat and on the beach, still love to fish whenever I get the chance,, the old trussel that you filmed some of the song on, I walked a few times when we missed the ferry or the taxi boat, I still go to Boca as often as I can.

Wonderful site and song! I’d rather fish than eat and def have fishing in my soul. All that’s needed to keep this little old lady happy is my skinny water boat, ultra light rod and bait. Pine Island Sound is where I catch ’em.

Just found you guys , great video. It makes me hope my 2 kids remember what I teach them fiishing. A lot of life lessons have been on the water, from releasing a snook that is just a little to small to avoiding some of the disrespectful ones at the ramp. We fish wabasso florida, which is just south of sebastian inlet. Love those mangrove shore lines. Keep up the great sook, and remember to take a kid fishing. You never know, you just might change someones life. Worked for me, almost 25 years ago, someone took me on a day trip from the orphanage I grew up in, hooked me from the first 10 minutes on the water. Made me turn away from the road I was headed down. Love ya Mr. Dave, rest easy my friend.

It does seem like you would have not included in your video the shots of prop trails damaging our fragile grass beds.

Luke Simonds

Reply to  Captain Mike

Hey Capt. Mike, thanks for highlighting such an important issue. Prop scars are unfortunately all too common so we don’t believe we should try to hide the fact that the problem persists because it’s so easy to fix… if only more boaters knew how fragile our grass beds truly are.

We can only hope that the overhead shots of these public fishing grounds in this video serves as a reminder to us all about the continued need of educating others about the importance of keeping props away from shallow grass beds.

You clearly are veryy aware of the problem, and we sincerely thank you for educating your clients and other boaters about the importance of staying in the marked channels whenever possible and for wearing good polarized glasses while driving a boat to be able to see the bottom contours more clearly.

Ya’ll did an Awesome Job Guys!! We Love It…There’s not many fishing song/ videos. That take myself or any of us back.. To our childhood days of being down in Boca and Little G.. Way back in the day. We use to camp out on Boca. As soon as you went across the bridge. My dad and I spent so much time in those waters fishing.. I remember the first shark we caught.. I was so stoked and excited.. He’s not here anymore. We lost him back in 2003.. I’ve been going down there now for 30+ yrs. And I will never stop. Everytime my toes hit the sand. It takes me back to those days!! Those old train tussles.. Will always play a major part in all our childhood memories.. And will forever be imprinted in our souls!!!! Thank ya’ll for adding to my memories… And to all of our time spent there!!! Keep up the good work..

This song could be about my son Joe. We live in Englewood and he has fished these same waters since he was old enough to hold a pole. His life was fishing. He had a heart attack June 20 at the age of 44. My husband lost his fishing buddy and his young infant son lost one of the best future fishing partners ever. This is Joe’s song. Wonderful, touching song.
