B Ray Charters

Join B Ray Charters for a relaxing day in the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll be in hands of a very experienced guide, Captain Bobby, who’s been fishing these waters for over 40 years. He loves that he gets to start each day from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, from Panama City and that he gets to share all of it with other people. There’s always something new in the Gulf and each day brings a new opportunity.

Capt. Bobby welcomes you onto his 25’ Twin V boat. This catamaran is very steady and ensures a safe and comfortable ride to your fishing spot. To secure fast transfer, the boat is powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki engines. She also features a wireless trolling motor, a variety of navigational electronics, and a portable toilet.

The rich waters of Panama Bay offer lots of different species and you never know what’s going to bite. You’re most likely to target Mackerel, Cobia, Yellowtail Amberjack, and all kinds of Snapper and Grouper. What you catch depends on which technique you’re using, so you can always ask the captain to adjust the strategy, so you can catch the fish of your choice.

The catch is yours to keep and you can have it cleaned at the marina for a small fee. The captain will cover your fishing license, equipment, lures, and bait. You only need to bring a small cooler for your snacks and drinks, as well as a cooler to take fish home that you can leave in your car.

B Ray Charters is at your service year round. Choose your trip and go fishing!
