Southern Hooker Fishing Charters

(4) Selling out fast!
3605 Thomas Drive
Panama City Beach FL, United States

Operating out of the bountiful fishing port of Panama City Beach, Southern Hooker Fishing Charters provides bottom fishing, trolling, and shark fishing charters in any combination you like. Headed by the solid team of Captains Nick Eyles and Robert Markham, the company combines expertise with a large, comfortable boat to create memorable fishing experiences in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Southern Hooker is a 41 ft Hatteras, a classic sportfishing boat that is ideally designed for offshore fishing charters. With a restroom on board and a very large deck, the boat will be a comfortable base for everyone on board. It is equipped with all the marine electronics you could ask for, including a GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, and a radar, to make sure you find the best places to fish and are in contact with the shore at all times.

Southern Hooker Fishing Charters runs a wide variety of trips, ranging from short four hour nearshore trolling charters to full 12 hour trolling and bottom fishing marathons. Logically, the longer the trip you take, the further offshore you go, and the bigger and more plentiful are the fish you are likely to catch.

Shark fishing charters are also a fun possibility: these trips can either be booked on their own or added as an extension to any other trip.

The team was very prompt; we left the slew right at 6:00. Nick put us right on a bunch of fish and we almost filled the boat’s box/cooler. We wore the fish out and they wore us out! We will be back soon, for sure.
Nick and Ethan were AWESOME, friendly, professional, fish luring. We highly recommend Nick and Ethan’s Southern Hookers Charter! We will definitely be back on Nick and Ethan’s charter!!!

Captain and deck hand were super.  Talked and engaged with everyone.  You could tell both actually wanted to be on the water fishing.

Had a great time on the Southern Hooker. Captain Nick knew exactly where the fish were, 1st mate knew what he was doing which made the trip very enjoyable. Can’t say enough about the quality of service and professionalism. from booking our trip, to catching fish, to recomending where to have them cleaned and best way to prepare the meal. I would highly recommend the Southern Hooker to anyone planning trip. Thanks again for a memorable experience
