Reel Fun Charters Trips

On this kid-oriented fishing trip, you'll venture into the calm waters off Panama City Beach, staying close to maximize your fishing time. While on the boat, your captain will take his time to explain different types of fish and gear to the kiddos. Captain Terry loves showing kids the ropes, and his goal is to get the kids on any species of fish that will keep them entertained and having fun! With the limited amount of time on kids charters, these trips are primarily catch and release. You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Terry's 24' SeaPro center console, which is equipped with a 250-HP Yamaha outboard to give you a smooth, fast ride. She's also fully kitted out with a GPS, Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Wireless Trolling Motor, Ice Box, and Life Jackets for all passengers. Captain Terry 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! Read More

We went out on Reel Fun today and had a blast. Our 3 boys caught fish the entire 2 hour trip and came wait to come back!

Amazing experience. Captain went above and beyond to help those who weren’t experienced fishers. Wonderful view and scenery. Would definitely do again.

Captain quickly put us on the fish, and did a great job keeping my 2 little ones engaged the whole time. Will certainly be booking with you again next time we’re in PCB!

It was a great day. Went with the short trip to see if we would like it and had a wonderful time. Thank you. Caught plenty of fish.

We took a four hour trip, leaving at 6:30 am. John, our capital was awesome. He was funny and kind and patient, especially since he had three ladies to deal with. We caught a good number of fish, and would have caught a ton more if it weren’t for those pesky dolphins, eating our catch. We would highly recommend Captain Terry or John. And we will definitely be calling them again next time we are in town.

We had an amazing time for my dad’s birthday! He hadn’t gone fishing for at least 5 years prior to this trip and it was mine, my sister and my fiance’s first time so it was extra special! We didn’t have Captain Terry lead our trip but Justin was so great and made a good judgement call on giving us the option to reschedule our trip due to a heavy rain storm. We were able to reschedule the very next day and it was absolutely perfect! We caught plenty of fish and my dad caught some big groupers so he was quite happy! We immediately went back to our condo and ate some fresh red snappers - which were so perfectly meaty!! Thank you, Terry and Justin!!! We highly recommend and will definitely return for another trip!

My friend and I were supposed to go with captain Terry who ended up having a minor boat issue and couldn’t find a part. He did everything he could to get us on a boat to get out and fish (unlike the person who canceled on me the week we were to be at the beach) and we ended up going with his son. Had a great time! Mahi mahi and mackerel were not wanting to bite (tide had changed) but he did what he could to get us on some fish. Highly recommend had a great time. Will definitely be back next time We’re in PCB
