With local and experienced guides by your side, Long Shot Charters will lead you to some of the most productive fishing grounds in the world! Captain Alicia and Kelia will make sure you have a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable ride from the moment you step on board to when it’s time to go home.

You’ll set off from the coast of Panama City Beach in the captain’s 41’ Infiniti saltwater sportfisher. You’ll reach some of the best fisheries in no time with its twin 325 HP Caterpillar engines and top-of-the-line navigational equipment. She also comes with a flybridge so you can spot your target even quicker, giving you a greater advantage over the fish. You’ll also have AC, bunk beds for napping, a clean restroom, and lots of space, providing maximum comfort.

You’ll be provided with top-quality Penn and Shimano gear, as well as live bait and lures. You’ll be doing a lot of fishing though, so Capt. Alicia recommends buying extra live bait before each trip so you don’t run out.

You’ll target a range of amazing species while you bottom fish over incredible reefs and underwater structures. Drop your bait and attract large Snapper and Grouper species and get ready for an epic battle! You can also troll the deep blue waters for offshore pelagics like Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and more.

Invite 5 other friends or family members and come experience the adventure of a lifetime! Your fishing license will already be taken care of prior to your trip, so you can just relax and enjoy the ride! Book your next fishing trip with Long Shot Charters and create lasting memories in the Gulf of Mexico!
