Panhandle Fishing Charters

104 Miracle Strip Parkway Sout…
Fort Walton Beach FL, United States

Panhandle Fishing Charters invites you to experience the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Test the bite close to shore or in the bay. The crew can accommodate your specific needs and desires no matter whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned pro.

Introduce your kids to fishing on a short ride to the local ‘honey holes’. Target Speckled Trout, Redfish, Bluefish, and many other exciting species within the Choctawhatchee Bay and the surrounding waters. These charters start at a minimum of 3 hours and are great for kids who are fishing for the first time!

If you are traveling with your fishing buddies,  get your hands on Speckled Trout, Bull Redfish, Slot Redfish, Bluefin, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, and Sheepshead to name a new. Head a bit further out to the Gulf and focus on Red Snapper (when in season), Black Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Flounder, and who knows what else.

And if you’re after something different on your next Floridian holiday, book a bowfishing adventure and go for a hunt of a lifetime. Target Sheepshead and Stingray, which you can release back or keep for dinner later.

Captain Joey, the owner of Panhandle Fishing Charters, has over 10 years experience fishing the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding areas. Joey runs a 24’ Skeeter center console. The boat comes powered by a single 300 HP Yamaha engine and can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers. It is outfitted with latest navigational and fish finding electronics to save your time while searching for fish, as well as other professional accessories.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment, gear, and tackle, as well as licenses, bait, and lures. At the end of the trip, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan.

Did not catch any Redfish, did not target anything other than Bluefish.  It seemed that he tried but once his plan didn’t pan out the day went south.  And he claimed that there was a miss communication about us booking a 5 hour trip vs him thinking it was a 4 hour trip.  He did not charge us the extra hour but I was disappointed that no other fish were actually targeted.  He did not have any other bait available to target anything but Redfish, when that plan went south we drove around a lot.  Overall it was a waste of money and time I wish I would have went another direction.  Two fish hence two stars, and that is generous.

Overall was a good trip. Captain Joey tried his best to get us on the fish but it was a busy evening on the water in the Bay.
