Panama City Beach Fishing Charter Overview

Panama City, FL is a year-round resort town that offers a variety of watersports activities, including fishing. The town is surrounded by water, with North Bay, Saint Andrew Bay, and Grand Lagoon providing inshore fishing opportunities. Anglers can target Floridian favorites such as Redfish and Spotted Seatrout year-round, as well as Flounder and Sheepshead. In the summer, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, and Bonito are also prevalent.

For those seeking offshore fishing, charters are readily available to take anglers out into the Gulf, where productive reefs are swarming with prized fish such as Amberjacks, Kingfish, Snappers, Groupers, and Cobia. Deep water enthusiasts can also find charters that cater to them, with opportunities to catch monster Snappers, Groupers, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Billfish.

Panama City offers fishing opportunities for all levels of experience, with trips ranging from two hours inshore for beginners to full-day offshore adventures for angling fiends. Fishing licenses and regulations are covered by the professional captains, allowing anglers to focus on the fishing experience.

Panama City Beach Inshore Fishing

If you're an inshore angler, taking a look at a map of Panama City and the surrounding bays, sounds, and backwaters will get your adrenaline pumping. The inshore waters around Panama City provide anglers a unique opportunity to fish pristine, untouched mangrove shorelines just minutes away from a big city. Panama City has redfish, flounder, speckled trout, and sheepshead that can all be caught year-round. A diverse catch is expected in these productive inshore waters unless you want to target that one trophy that's been keeping you up at night.

In the heat of summer, the Silver King, or Tarpon invade the bays in search of their favorite baitfish. These fickle eaters can be difficult to fool at times, but all you need is one bite and they will go on a leaping run. Fishing for tarpon in Panama City Beach is incredible. Even more incredible is the opportunity to catch a tarpon on a fly and if you like a challenge this is the trip for you!

If you love catching speckled trout then Panama City in May and June is your opportunity to catch a trophy. To target big bull redfish head out in late summer to early fall during their annual migration. Fishing for specks and reds is productive outside of these seasonal windows as well. If you want to mix it up a bit then book a fly fishing guide and see if you can fool these inshore icons.

Panama City Beach Nearshore Fishing

Much like the inshore waters, the nearshore fishing grounds off of PCB are full of a variety of fish that can be caught year-round. The warm weather and location on the Northern Gulf Coast mean something is always biting. With plenty of manmade and natural reefs, wrecks, and other bottom structures, you'll be hard pressed to find better fishing for snapper, groupers, cobia, and amberjack.

If you want to fill up the freezer with tasty red snapper and kingfish, Panama City Beach is where you want to be. While snapper are best targeted by dropping bait near deep structure, king mackerel are aggressive predators that feed near the surface and are commonly caught while trolling. Both fish put up a big fight and are sure to spice up your trip.

Panama City Beach Deep Sea Fishing

Not to be outdone by the inshore or nearshore fishing, offshore fishing in Panama City is second to none. With marlin, tuna, wahoo, and more, deep sea fishing this is an exciting place to troll for giants. Marlin and tuna patrol the deep waters of the gulf and grow to incredible sizes. It seems that the wahoo caught out of Panama City Beach are always exceptionally large. Hook up to one of these fierce fish and it’s sure to be an unforgettable trip.

Popular Types of Fishing In Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach fishing charters offer a variety of options for anglers of all levels. The most common types of fishing charters include inshore, offshore, and deep-sea fishing. Inshore fishing is perfect for beginners and families, as it takes place in calm waters close to shore. Offshore fishing is for more experienced anglers and takes place in deeper waters, where you can catch larger fish like tuna and mahi-mahi. Deep-sea fishing is the ultimate adventure, taking you miles offshore to catch big game fish like marlin and sailfish.

The types of fish you can catch in Panama City Beach depend on the type of fishing you choose. Inshore fishing is great for catching redfish, trout, and flounder. Offshore fishing can yield grouper, snapper, and amberjack. Deep-sea fishing is where you'll find the big game fish like marlin, sailfish, and wahoo.

When booking a Panama City Beach fishing charter, be sure to ask about visiting landmarks like Shell Island and St. Andrews State Park. These areas are known for their abundant fish populations and beautiful scenery. So, whether you're a seasoned angler or a first-timer, there's a Panama City Beach fishing charter that's perfect for you.

    Russell is an awesome captain. Every spot we stopped, we caught fish.

    Joe S. with Russell F. of Panama City, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great time! Most of us had never been fishing offshore before, but we were all able to snag a few Red Snapper and Beeliner. We got our quota of Snapper in the 6 hours that we were out there. For future excursions, the one lesson I'd take away is to try to buy live bait in the morning if you have an afternoon trip. We didn't have any live bait to fish with, but still had a great time and plenty of success!

    Brian O. with Brian G. of Panama City, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Great experience, the guides were amazing and patient with the whole group. They get 15 thumbs up from us all. I highly recommend them, especially for beginners. We will be back and hopefully we get the same guides again. Please tip them, they deserve that and more.
