Captain Black’s Fishing

Panama City Beach FL, United States

Captain Black offers one of the best ranges of trips anywhere out there, in one of the best fishing areas in the world - the amazing waters around and offshore of Panama City, FL. Captain Black’s trips range from a quick 3 hours inshore trolling before work, to a 16 hour blue water odyssey targeting big game monsters such as Blue Marlin, Sailfish and Mahi Mahi, with an awesome selection of trips in between including the 10-hour “prospector” trip where you go scouring uncharted fishing waters for great new spots and the opportunity to name them yourself!

Captain Black’s 31 ft Luhrs saltwater fishing boat is the perfect vessel for the range of trips he offers. Powered by twin 330HP Mercruiser engines to a top cruising speed of 20 knots, she comes with everything you will need on your fishing adventure. From state of the art electronics like Raymarine GPS and fishfinder, to excellent fishing equipment including outriggers, a live bait tank, a wide selection of lures, and top quality tackle for a huge variety of techniques including light and heavy tackle, trolling, spinning and drift fishing to name just a few.

Captain Black has spent his whole life in the Panama City area and has been fishing the waters there for almost 50 years. He runs a family-oriented business and welcomes anyone - young or old, novice or master - for some great fishing and fun times. Captain Black aims to impress with his amazing trips and vast wealth of local knowledge and experience.

All Captain Black’s trips include ice, bait, and licences for everyone on board. His boat is also wheelchair accessible and very child friendly. Captain Black operates a strict catch and release policy on all Billfish.

Captain Black"s Fishing
Panama City Beach, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
I began fishing at age 4. My parents were avid fisherman and took me everyday during the summer months. My older sister also took me fishing as I was a total addict. I have always had an appreciation for the experience of fishing and being there either alone or with people I wish to share my passion with. Having fished this area for 48 years has been pure joy because you never know what is going to swim up to you. I would love to share my experience and help you make some memories with your family and friends. I always strive to treat each trip as though I were taking my friends and family fishing.

I would say that captain Black knows the fishing spots of Panama City Beach vincity pretty well.  We started our trip with catching two Kingfishes right off the bat and went on to have a beautiful fishing day.  His cumulative fishing skill on various species of fish from years of experiences were very obvious based on what he demonstrated to my friends.  Captain Black is courteous and attends to small details of everyone.  For an example, he made sure everyone gets fair chance of catching decent fish aboard by paying attention to their fishing skills and habits to provide effective coaching on hooking and reeling in a fish.  We all had great time with Captain Black and we would definitely come back for more!
