Reel Therapy Charters

Come and spend an exciting and productive day on the water with Reel Therapy Charters! With Captain John Morin at the helm, this company offers a variety of fishing trips out of Panama City, Florida for all ages and skill levels.

Whether you’re looking to get a taste of the inshore action on offer, or you’re chasing your next personal best, booking a trip with Reel Therapy Charters is the right move. You’ll be going after a variety of Floridian favorites, including Red Snapper, Amberjack, Gag Grouper, and more.

If trolling better suits your fishing appetite, then you can hook anything from King and Spanish Mackerel to Mahi Mahi and Little Tunny. Your guide will provide all the necessary equipment but you’re free to bring your lucky rod with you.

Your ride and fishing platform for the day is a 22’ Pioneer bay boat, outfitted with a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Up to 4 anglers can fish at the same time, and there are quality navigational electronics on board to keep you on the bite.

If fishing is a family affair for you, you’re welcome to bring your little ones, as long as they’re age 3 and older. Just remember to pack life jackets for them. After that, you’ll only need drinks, food, and plenty of sunscreen to protect you from the sun on the open water.

Reel Therapy Charters promises great fun, an impressive catch, and a wonderful fishing experience that you’ll cherish forever!
