About Your Guide

Profile photo of Captain Experiences guide Greg

Captain Greg is a 4th generation Panama City native who has been fishing the local waters since a very young age. He is driven to provide exceptional service to his clients and give them the fishing trip of a lifetime!

Redfish are Captain Greg's bread and butter; He spends the majority of his time stalking redfish in shallow waters. He also has plenty of experience with other Gulf species, and will occasionally fish the nearshore Gulf reefs for red snapper or cruise the beach looking for migrating tarpon. Whatever species you're going after, Captain Greg is sure to have some great tips!

On his 22’ bay boat, Captain Greg can carry up to 4 passengers while targeting any of the above named species. For more experienced fishermen he offers a fly or light tackle sight fishing trip on his 14’ flats skiff, which will carry 1-2 passengers.

Capt. Greg Gladden did an outstanding job from start to finish. He was a total pro & texted ahead of time to give us a quick heads up for what to expect. Boat was super clean & in really great shape with plenty of comfortable seating. We were on Redfish from the jump!! Also caught a few beautiful grouper & other species. Greg was really patient with our 9yo, 13 yo, and 15 yo. Awesome trip for kids or experienced fishermen. We will definitely take another charter trip w Greg next time we are in PCB.

We had an amazing time with Greg, he was so patient and great with the kids. No only did the boys get to fish they seen dolphins and at the end they even fed the pelican. Definitely a 5 ⭐️ experience!

Just finished a 3 hour trip this morning with Captain Greg which included my youngest son and father. My hope was that my son would have the opportunity to land a big Redfish. Five minutes into the trip and that hope/wish was granted with my son landing a beautiful 32-1/2” Red. Captain Greg was great with my son and a pleasure to spend time with for all of us. He is a true professional and just plain fun to fish with. I would not hesitate to recommend Captain Greg to anyone looking for an enjoyable and memorable inshore experience. We definitely plan to book a trip with Captain Greg in the future.

We were looking for some Redfish action and captain Greg didn’t disappoint. The only trouble we had was keeping the dolphins off our catch. Action was so good, I needed a couple breaks. My son-in-law had a great first time experience. Hope we can get back here with captain Greg on our next trip.

Greg is an amazing captain. He is very knowledgeable about the fish and spots to fish. Doesn’t get aggravated when your family loses too many hooks we swear the fish ate them. We will definitely be back when we are down. If you are looking for a great boat ride and good fishing you have found the right place

The only fishing charter my wife has ever gone on, and liked :) Nice boat, Captain Greg is a friendly, knowledgeable and patient guy. He put us right on fish, and was great with our 4 year old son. We will ABSOLUTELY be going back out with him the next time we’re here!

Greg was amazing. He knew all the good spots that only a local would know. He was very proficient with setting up all the rods and getting us started. Within 15 minutes of casting we were reeling them in. I have never caught so many BIG fish. There was 4 of us and we EACH caught at least 6 MONSTER Redfins. I can’t recommend him enough. Great time.

This was our second year in a row fishing with Captain Greg. Our boys were so excited to come back to Panama City Beach and go fishing again. Captain Greg is very knowledgeable, personable, and great with the kids. We had a great time as usual and would absolutely recommend him!

Greg was a great captain. He kept us entertained during the slower times of fishing and egged each of us on when the bite was on! He wanted us to catch fish and have a great time on the water. The experience was worth it itself. Inshore fishing is pretty hit or miss, and Greg did all he could to avoid missing. Look forward to contacting Capt. Greg next time in PCB. Smashed it!
