I have fished since I was a child. My parents both loved to fish so it came natural to me. Absolutely love saltwater action because you never know what the next fish might be. I have fished here in Panama City Beach for 20 years now. Please look me up on Facebook also under Capt Salty Charters for pics and news.

I would tell you this trip was not worth the money. I did tip them but overall I would not suggest them to your customers. He did not want to take credit card at first. Saying he usually deals in cash. I did not have the money in cash to pay him. Then when we did fish they made us feel like crap because we did not know what to do. They kept saying how much there fishing gear cost and how expensive fuel was for the boat. I had to finally shop fishing because I hated to mess his expensive real up. Overall riding out and back in was better than fishing. If you want nice folks just driving around great trip. If you want help fishing don’t go because they are to proud of there equipment. This trip was recommended but please don’t go if you want to have fun and not wanting to have to worry about stuff. When leaving captain did not tell us bye even after tipping him.
