Reel Twisted Charters is located in Panama City and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Dalton will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 3 to 12-hour trips, mainly fishing for Snapper, King Mackerel, Dolphin, Amberjack, Grouper, and Cobia, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, drift fishing, and jigging.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 36’ Hatteras boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. This boat comes with a toilet, ac, an ice-box, and a fighting chair.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day.
