Based in Panama City Beach, Florida, Bloodline Charters offers you a wide range of possibilities for fishing. You and Captain Billy Van Wie can travel inshore, nearshore, and offshore, explore reefs and wrecks, and fish flats and the backcountry. Choose one of their trips and embark on a sea adventure.

Your boat is a restored 22’ Cape Horn center console that runs on a 200 HP Yamaha four stroke engine with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. The boat holds enough space for up to 4 anglers. Its navigation gear includes GPS, fishinder, and radio systems. It’s also rigged with a livewell. The boat’s wireless trolling motor will help you reach fish without scaring it.

Among many interesting and elusive species that you’ll chase are Kingfish, Great Barracuda, Bonito, Blacktip Shark, Red Snapper, and many more. You’ll have the chance to bottom fish, troll and spin, all by using light tackle. If you want, you can keep the fish you catch so you can prepare delicious meals at home. If you’d rather release it back to the water, you’re free to do so.

Captain Billy will cover you for all the fishing gear. This means rods, reels, terminal tackle, and lures. He’s also got fishing licenses, so no need to worry about that either. Before you leave, you should only pack your favorite food and drinks.

Come and have a fishing trip of a lifetime. Bloodline Charters is waiting for you!
