Blackwater Charters

99 Rock Landing Street
Panacea FL, United States

Blackwater Charters specializes in offering inshore fishing trips in the area of Panacea in North Florida. This family-friendly charter service invites you to join them in fishing the local bays and rivers.

You will be fishing aboard a 22 ft Oyster Bay flats boat that is powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine to get you to the best fishing spots quickly and efficiently. The boat is equipped with a fishfinder and a GPS to get you to the captain’s tried and tested fishing spots, and it has a poling platform for the stealthiest of approaches. Featuring a trolling motor and anchoring system to keep you on the fish, the boat is perfectly appointed for an enjoyable inshore fishing trip.

During your trip you will mainly be targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, using either live bait or artificials, depending on your preference and the conditions. Blackwater Charters also offers scalloping trips, which are a great opportunity for family groups to cool down in the hot summer months.

Blackwater Charters provides all the equipment you will need for an enjoyable trip, and they also supply some snacks and drinks for their guests. They will even clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip.
