Blue Water Connection offers a wide range of fishing trips, starting from a four hour nearshore trolling trip and extending all the way up to a 24 hour bluewater adventure offshore.

You may also like to try an offshore bottom fishing trip, targeting tasty Snappers and Groupers and the rod-bending Amberjack (in season).

First trip with my sons and it was great.  Caught several Mackerel which aren’t the best for eating but had a great time doing it.  Justin and Brandon were ready to go at 6am sharp, the boat was plenty large enough/well kept with a nice cabin/bathroom (A/C) to take a break.  We took the a 4 hour trolling - would do longer the next time.  Brandon kept the lines baited and clear.  Could not have asked for a better effort.  We will return for some bottom fishing next time.

Fantastic fishing trip. Captain Justin Steele had us on the fish right away. Brandon did an awesome job keeping the bait in the water, the deck clean, and us happy catching fish. We caught our limit of King Mackerel.  The boat is immaculate. This crew’s goal is for you to have a great fishing trip and experience, which is obvious from the moment you come aboard. Will definitely look to book this charter again in the future.

Captain Steele put us on the fish and first mate Brandon was very knowledgable and did a great job keeping the deck clean and the hooks baited. As for the Billistic it is a very nice boat and can definitely accommodate any needs you may have. I definitely recommend the Billistic to anyone looking for a fishing charter in Panama City.
