About Your Trip

"Surf fishing off of Panama City Beach is what Max has done most of his 34 years of life. He takes pride in it and this shows by the fish he‘s been able to produce over the years. He provides his customers with top notch gear, the best tackle, an iced down fish cooler with bottled water, beach chairs & everything else needed for a successful day of fishing. For bait, we will be using live sand fleas, fresh cut mullet and shrimp. We will set out four surf rods and have a spinning rod on standby to site fish big fish that swim bye. I will personally clean your fish right there on the beach and have gallon Ziploc bags to put the fillets in. Surf fishing is fun for all ages so bring the kiddos with you.

Everything Else to Know

If you do not have a Florida fishing license and you plan on being one of the people to reel in the fish, you will need to have a one day Florida fishing license. If you are under the age of 16, you will not need one. A fishing license can be easily purchased using your phone and I can help you once you get down to the beach. If you plan on bringing drinks, please make sure they are cans and not glass.
You're all set! You don't need to buy a license for this trip.
We use a cashless autopay system. We'll send you a boarding pass, and on the day of the trip, your guide will scan your boarding pass to automatically transfer the remaining balance. The only cash needed is to tip your guide (we recommend 20%).
Cancel for free up to 14 days before the trip and receive credit back to your account.
If the weather doesn’t cooperate you’ll be covered by our 100% weather guarantee and you won’t lose your deposit.

We were looking for a different kind of fishing trip and found it - we loved the surf fishing experience with Capt Max!

We were looking for a different kind of fishing trip and found it - we loved the surf fishing experience with Capt Max! He is a professional in every sense - he reached out to ensure we knew what to expect and where to meet. The beach location was easy to find & park and he had chairs & water waiting for us. Capt Max is very personable - loved hearing his story! The surf was very rough so we didn’t have high expectations, but Capt Max worked hard to find fish! We caught three nice pompano which he cleaned for us on the beach (they were delicious by the way!). Plus, we were treated to a beautiful sunset! What’s not to love?! No early morning, no bouncing around on a boat, spending time on the beach, great sunset, and a tasty dinner - perfect start to a beach vacay! Can’t wait to do it again and a big thank you to Capt Max!

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
