Got'em Fishing Charters

Got’em Fishing Charters is located in Panama City Beach and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. Capt. Jeremy Vanderveen invites all skill levels and kids. His no. 1 goal is to make your trip fun. The captain assures you he’ll work as hard as it takes to get that bite. In any case,  the captain guarantees you’ll have a good time and enjoy your time on his boat.

Capt. Jeremy will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves up to 10-hour trips, mainly fishing for Snapper, King Mackerel, Amberjack, Dolphin, Grouper, Cobia, Triggerfish, sharks, as well as many other species 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, drift fishing, jigging, and spinning.

Weather also plays a role in fishing. If the captain has to cancel your trip due to bad weather, you’ll discuss options to either move time, move to another day, or possibly bay fish.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 25’ Sea Hunt Bx 25 Br boat that can safely take up to 4 anglers. This boat comes with an ice-box and a wireless trolling motor.

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. Capt. Jeremy will be cleaning your catch unless he has a trip directly after yours. Should this be the case, the other options are dropping your catch off at the fish market at a marina to be cleaned for a fee, you taking it to the cleaning station, and you leaving it with the captain and picking it up that evening.

Capt. Jeremy looks forward to taking you fishing and hopefully every year after that.

    An evening trip to target big Shark. The plan is to anchor on a bridge span in the Gulf unless it's too rough out there. In that case, you'll set up around the pass. Note: sharks that are caught won't be boated as they can often be pretty large which can make it dangerous for folks on the boat. You'll harvest very few species (Blacktip and Mako) which will be at the captain's discretion. If catching Shark is on your bucket list, he can all but guarantee you to be able to check that of when you get back.

Capt. Jeremy was born and raised in Panama City and he grew up fishing every chance he got. When he was 16, he started getting the opportunity to learn and fish on charters through a family friend. The captain did this on and off through high school until he joined the Air Force. He served 4 years and when he came back home is when he started fishing full-time for a living. He first started decking on a few local charter boats during the season. Soon after, he began commercially fishing during the winter and spring months, which would put him in the gulf for a good 250+ days a year. In 2006, he got his 100-Ton license. He now thinks the thing that gets me excited about fishing is when someone catches a nice fish and the look on their face after it's landed, especially the kids. Captain Jeremy feels blessed that gets to do this for a living. He likes catching all kinds but would have to say he love Grouper fishing and live baiting Kingfish.
