Hurricane Charters is a light tackle and fly fishing professional guide service operating exclusively in the Panama City Beach area. Come explore the pristine and beautiful bays, bayous and backwaters of the area with Captain Eric Nelson as your guide – an extremely passionate (his wife says rabid) angler with over 40 years of experience, both offshore and inshore.
Your fishing platform will be a 2018 19’ Hewes Redfisher powered with a Yamaha 150 HP outboard. This rig strikes a good balance between speed, seaworthiness, and the ability to fish skinny water. All equipment is top notch and includes custom casting platforms to accommodate both spinning and fly fishing. The boat comfortably accommodates up to 2 adult anglers.
Trips can be geared towards the expert and novice alike, and the primary objective is to create a fun and relaxing angling adventure. You’ll primarily be using artificial lures, as they make the chase more challenging and the catch more rewarding!
The primary targeted species will be Redfish and Speckled Trout in the bays and marshes. You can go sight fishing here, which really enhances the experience. Want some shots at one of the most exciting and challenging game fish around? Tarpon trips along our beautiful beaches will be offered during the peak migration (June, July and possibly early August).
High quality rods and reels will be provided, a well as tackle, fishing licenses, ice and bottled water. Captain Eric encourages catch and release to keep our fisheries healthy, however customers are certainly welcome to keep their catch if they so desire. Captain Eric will even clean your catch.
This slice of the Emerald Coast is a beautiful place and there is an abundance of wildlife both above and below the waterline to marvel at. Don’t miss this opportunity for a truly rewarding and enriching outdoors experience and join Hurricane Charters!
