5550 North Lagoon Drive
Panama City Beach FL, United States

Captain Bob Zales offers a great range of trips near and offshore from Panama City, FL targeting Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, and a range of pelagics including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, and King Mackerel.

Captain Bob’s boat, the “Leo Too”, is a 48 ft Marine Management hull with plenty of room for up to 25 anglers. She comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and a fighting chair. Bait is provided and live bait is available on the boat, as well as a selection of lures, and all the rods and reels you will need for a wide variety of fishing techniques is supplied. She also boasts a fully air-conditioned interior with a galley, head, and plenty of room to relax either below deck or up on the bow until the rods start bending.

Captain Bob Zales has been fishing since he was a kid, and still feels the same passion and excitement whenever he is out on the water. He loves working with anglers new or experienced, and thinks there’s no greater joy than watching children land their first fish.

All Captain Bob’s charters come with fishing licenses for everyone on board.

Bob and his mate, Jimmy knew what they were doing to efficiently get us on the fish for a short trip. Jimmy was also awesome with my boys. The trip was all about them as this was their first deep sea fishing trip. It was a great time!

The Captain lacked personality and was rude but definitely knew where to fish.  The First Mate Jimmy was very friendly and helpful.  The experience overall was memorable!
