Their experience doesn’t stop on the water though, but continues to the swamps of Northwest Florida for a wide variety of ducks and hogs.

You will head out on the ‘Panhandler’, a 24’ Trophy Bayliner boat that is powered by a 225HP Mercury Verado engine, and is equipped with GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, and sonar.

It comes equipped with a wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, quality Shimano and Penn fishing equipment, and a cooler for storing your drinks and food.

Depending on which exciting trip you choose, Panhandle Charters and Guide Service can show you many different techniques to target a range of species, including Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Red and Mangrove Snapper, King Mackerel, Amberjack, Sharks (Hammerhead, Tiger, Blacktip, Bull), Stingrays, Mullet, Black Drum, and Catfish.

About the Captain

Kenny Lewis
Pensacola, Florida, United States
Member since March 2016
Born and raised in the Panhandle of Florida, as a young child I ran the river banks in pursuit of anything I could get to sink a cork (bobber), fishing with only a good old cane pole. It wasn't until I was around 12 that I first started to fish for saltwater species. The first time I used a fish the size of my hand for bait and had something eat it, well, I knew it was a type of fishing that I was gonna love. Since that first experience I have cut my teeth on many types of fishing techniques. I have commercial fished for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, Mullet and have spent a many nights offshore fishing for Snappers and Groupers. When I am not fishing, I like to spend as much time in the woods. I have two boys that I spend as much time as possible with, and teach them as much as I can about the great outdoors!!

Captain Kenny was an enthusiastic and fun guide. He was very knowledgeable and worked hard to find the fish. We will come back to charter with such a great guy again!

Had an absolutely fantastic experience ! Caught loads of fish of several varieties. The Black Drum and Sheephead put up some really great fighting . The Captain was a really great guy and my 16 year old son and I consider that this was the highlight of our 10 day trip to Florida. Lots of laughs and would go with this charter again next time we are down in a heartbeat .
