Southern Hooker Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in Panama City Beach. 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.

Southern Hooker was perfect. It’s a family run business that is very personal, friendly, and professional. I had my 13 and 8 year old sons aboard and they had an experience they will remember a life time. The crew was great with the fishing instruction but also took the time to teach a magic trick that I am sure will win some points back on the playground. The fishing was steady and Captain Nick carefully navigated some small storm cells to keep everyone safe yet boat some fish as well. I have fished many places with many crews and these guys are the real deal for a great family fishing experience. That being said I am going to bring back my 17 year old son and do some serious sport fishing with Southrrn Hooker as soon as I can. Their boat was very comfortable and adequate for more choppy seas. A 41 foot Boat helps calm the swells a great deal as opposed to the other Captains running 32s or less. So if you are concerned in any way about possible sea sickness and want catch some great fish, look no further and book these guys… if they have an opening.

I sent my husband out for his 30th birthday with some guy friends and they had a great time. They went on one of the shark fishing charters and unfortunately sharks weren’t biting, but they caught plenty of snapper. The guys all had a great time. Thank you Southern Hooker!
