Captain Black’s Fishing offers one of the best ranges of trips out there, in one of the best fishing areas in the world – the amazing waters around Panama City, FL. Captain John Black has been fishing since the age of 4, so you can rest assured that he’ll show you all of his secret spots and honey holes in the area.
Captain Black’s 40’ Buskens saltwater fishing boat is the perfect vessel for the range of trips he offers. Powered by a 320 HP Caterpillar engine, it comes with everything you will need on your fishing adventure. There are outriggers, a live bait tank, lures, and top quality tackle for a variety of techniques including light and heavy tackle, trolling, spinning and drift fishing.
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. There’s 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!
Capt. John runs a family-oriented business and welcomes anyone – young or old, novice or master – for some great fishing and fun times. He aims to impress with his amazing trips and vast wealth of local knowledge and experience.
All trips include ice, bait, and licenses for everyone on board. His boat is also wheelchair accessible and very child-friendly. The captain operates a strict catch and release policy on all Billfish. Please give the Captain a call or text the day before to verify your trip, and receive any last-minute instructions.
