Fifth Generation Charters

Join the family-owned Fifth Generation Charters out of Panama City, Florida. They are both state-licensed and coast guard certified to take you on exciting nearshore and offshore fishing trips on the Gulf waters. As their boat is state-licensed for Snapper season, you will be able to fish for Snapper longer than other boats in the marina.

Captain Clarence Raffield was born and raised in the area. He first started fishing as a kid, and he and his wife Hannah are avid anglers who now run this charter together. They will make sure to show you all the best fishing spots, so get ready to have some serious fun!

Climb aboard their truly impressive 55’ saltwater fishing boat, made by Gillman. It’s a fantastic vessel, able to comfortably hold 20 anglers at the same time. It comes equipped with a full set of navigational equipment, live bait tank, and an icebox. Comfort wasn’t overlooked as you have beds, a kitchen, a shower, fully enclosed toilets, and an air-conditioned cabin.

Capt. Clarence uses high-quality Shimano, Penn and various other brands of fishing equipment. The crew specializes in fishing with light and heavy tackle, as well as bottom fishing and trolling. They offer a variety of trips you can choose from and they offer flexible departure times.

They will get you targeting exciting species such as Snapper, Marlin, Tuna, Grouper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, and Shark, depending on the season. Trips include the use of rods, reels, tackle and lures, as well as ice and fishing licenses. Fish cleaning and filleting is available at the marina fish house.
