About Your Guide

12 Years of Experience

Aftergrowing up right here in Panama City Beach, learning from a young age all about fishing on these beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters, Captain Alicia started the business back in 2011. She has enjoyed taking people out, introducing them to the local fisheries and what she has loved her entire life. Beginning with the 2022 season, Capt. Alicia transitioned to the new boat of the fleet, the Big Shot, and Capt. Joe took over the helm of the Long Shot. Capt. Joe has been Capt. Alicia's first mate since the beginning and knows both the boat and industry like the back of his hand. Capt. Joe was born in Panama City and moved away as a kid but the Gulf of Mexico and his passion for fishing drew him back in his teens. Once you go fishing with Capt. Alicia aboard the Big Shot or Capt. Joe aboard the Long Shot you’ll want to return to Panama City Beach for another excursion.

My brother and I had a great time with Captain Joe and his first mate, Dusty. They were a lot of fun, knowledgeable, and it was a great experience. Thanks for the good time; oh, and we caught so many fish, around 20 Bonita, 4 Spanish, and even one mahi! We took the Spanish and Mahi to J Michael’s after and that was also delicious; thanks for the recommendation Joe and Dusty!

Had an amazing trip. AJ was the man and kept everyone baited and entertained. Captain Joe also did an amazing job keeping us on fish. Did the 6 hr morning bottom trip and caught bonito, red snapper, vermillion. Even added a bonus spanish from the bottom. Caught 7 different species, overall great trip and definitely recommend.

We had a great time fishing with captain Alicia. I’m glad I talked to her the day prior and be left two hrs earlier than the schedule time bc it was a hot day. We ended up catching a lot of fish for a 6 hrs trip. It was the first time fishing for our family of 5 and everybody loved it. The boat was nice and the first mate was great showing us how to fish and loading our bait. Sad that we were not able to keep any of the red snapper bc they were not in season. Will definitely come back next year.

The captain became injured a couple of days before our trip. But, she recruited a friend, Ted, whom did a great job. Joe the deck hand was also very helpful and made it very enjoyable. We have a 9 year old and an 11 year old boy and they both had a great time. We actually had only caught 1 fish up until the last 30 minutes or so. Ted kept moving and kept trying different spots until he got us on the fish. Thanks for the great trip guys!



Started at 6am sharp! Had a bumpy ride hour and a half out to sea trolling behind. Got to first stop and caught red snapper right out the hole. A rain storm hit us so we moved spots. Next spot produced more undersized red snapper mixed with trigger fish which are not in season (bummer), as we caught quite a few. Changed spots a couple more times which both produced fish but again undersized. None the less we, a group of 5, limited out on red snapper in 2 hours. Decided to do a little trolling for the remainder of our trip and landed a dorado(lost 2) and a few bonita. Very good time on a little choppy boat. Highly recommend this guide service

Captain Alicia puts you on the fish and the mate takes care of all your fishing needs on the back of the boat. Her boat is organized and comfortable to fish from. I would recommend this Charter to anyone who wants to have a good time and catch fish!
