Join Captain Billy out of Panama City Beach, FL for an epic trip focused on catching one of the biggest, baddest, heaviest fish in the Gulf! On this trip, you'll be dropping lines on heavy tackle to attract Goliath Grouper, an absolutely monste species that lurks in nearshore waters all around Florida. The largest Goliath Grouper can grow up to eight feet long and nearly 800 pounds! Although there are record fish out there, you're more likely to see Goliaths in the 100-200 pound range—still nothing to scoff at!...Read More
To attract bites, you'll be fishing a bunch of different lures and bait, jigging and bottomfishing where the big lunkers like to hang out. Captain Billy has tons of tips and tricks to help you hook a monster, and there's no better opportunity for a personal best than this trip!
You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Billy's 22' Cape Horn center console, which is equipped with a 200-HP Yamaha outboard for a smooth, fast ride. She's also fully kitted out with a GPS, Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Wireless Trolling Motor, and an Ice Box for your catches!
Captain Billy will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Don’t forget to bring food and drinks for the day, sunscreen, a hat, and a cooler with ice to take home your day’s catch. Come on down to Panama City Beach and make some lifelong memories!
Captain Billy's main goal is to always achieve a high level of customer satisfaction with the service and experience that he provides.

We had such a great time fishing! Originally we planned for an adult trip. However, we had some changes last minute and had to bring our 4 year old and 9 year old. Billy was accommodating and had no problems with our change. The kids had a blast, and he ...Read More had no problems answering all 1,000 questions they had! They felt a little sick in the choppy water, so he moved us to a calmer spot and things were great. He was so knowledgeable and we all learned a ton! We walked away with 26lbs of shark meat! 10/10 would do this again if we ever come back! Thanks Billy for the great time!
