Fishing has been a Kelley family tradition for decades, and Captain Mark Kelley has inherited his ancestor’s passion for angling – he’s been exploring the waters of Panama City for over 35 years now. He uses tips, tricks, and knowledge that’s been passed down for generations to run a whole host of angling adventures on board the “Lady Kelley”!
Capt. Mark specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, and Shark fishing – so whether you’re looking to explore the depths of these waters, hook tasty Mackerel, or come face-to-gills with notorious sea beasts, he has just the trip for you. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to join him on board his vessel, and he’ll happily show you the ropes when it comes to reeling in your dream catch.
You’ll be traveling on board “Lady Kelley,” a 55’ Defender offshore sportfishing vessel. She’s ready and waiting to take up to 20 guests out to the hottest nearshore and offshore spots! Her size makes her the perfect option for a family vacation, or anglers looking to battle their best buddies. She’s decked out with GPS, fishfinder, a full toilet, air-conditioning, and plenty of room to take in the local scenery. When it comes to angling, 4 guests can troll at the same time, and 14 can bottom fish together.
No matter which trip you opt for, you’ll be hooking a huge variety of world-famous saltwater fish. Ready to troll to your heart’s content? Expect Spanish and King Mackerel, and Bonito. If you want to test your bottom fishing skills, you’ll be reeling in huge Red Snapper, as well as a variety of Grouper. For the truly brave anglers out there, get ready to meet a variety of Shark – Mako, Hammerhead, and Sand, to name a few! Head further offshore and you’ll even have the chance to battle Mahi Mahi and Sailfish.
Your captain will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, and a fishing license. Live bait is a small extra cost. All that’s left is to come aboard “Lady Kelley” and tangle lines with some first-class Floridian fish!
