Captain Hank's Charters

North Lagoon Drive
Panama City FL, United States

Captain Hank’s Fishing Charters invites you down to Panama City for a fun day out with your family and friends. Whether you are up to some bottom fishing or looking for a trolling adventure, there is a trip for you.

The ‘Captain Hank’ is a 44’ Henrique’s Offshore sport fishing boat, built back in 1985. Its twin 300 HP Detroit engines can power up to 15 anglers to the finest fishing grounds in the area and its modern electronics can save your time while searching for fish. The Captain Hank features an air-conditioned cabin, a toilet, and plenty of fishing space.

Check the bite close to shore and get your hands on Redfish, King Mackerel, Vermilion Snapper, and Spanish Mackerel. Venture up to 40 miles out and go for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Triggerfish, Amberjack, Red Snapper, and many other species.

Whichever fishing adventure you are hoping to get, rest assured that the crew will assist you throughout the trip. They will provide you with top-notch rods, reels, and tackle to make a great catch possible. All trips come with fishing licenses, so you won’t have to worry about getting one.

Just bring your own food and drinks with you and hop on board. Sit back, relax, sip your favorite drink, and enjoy the view. As soon as you arrive at the fishing grounds, be it nearshore, 20 or 40 miles out, you will hear ‘Fish On’ and the action will begin. Happy fishing!
