Panama City Beach Charter Fishing Guides

The Boats

For shallow water fishing in Panama City Beach and the surrounding area, we use Poling Skiffs powered by Yamaha outboards.  These boats allow us to quietly stalk fish in as little as 6" of water.  For fishing the coastal nearshore waters in the panhandle, we use larger Bay Boats.  Some additional gear includes Stiffy Graphite push poles, Power Poles, Minn-Kota trolling motors, and casting platforms with cages to provide the angler as much visibility as possible when sightfishing. Our boats also include livewells for live bait fishing, dry storage for personal items, rod holders, and rod tubes for safe storage of fly rods and spinning gear.

The Tackle

Whichever method the customer prefers, we have the tackle needed to provide for a successful fishing expedition.  Our rods and reels include some of the best fly and spinning tackle on the market. Our fly tackle includes Temple Fork Outfitters Rods and Galvin reels. Our spinning tackle includes Shimano and Penn Reels with Temple Fork Outfitters rods.  We tie all our own custom flies that have evolved over years of experience.  Any artificial or live baits needed will be provided.
