TailHunter Fishing Charter

TailHunter Fishing Charter invites you to join Captain Scott Nguyen for a fun fishing trip out of Panama City, Florida!

A 3rd generation local himself, Capt. Scott has fished the beautiful Emerald waters of the Gulf all his life. Over the years he has gained knowledge and acquired many different techniques to help you catch fish. Whether you’re looking to catch that dream trophy fish, fill the ice chest, or just enjoy the sport, he’s got you covered!

His 35’ SeaHunter center console is a real fishing machine. Powered by triple Suzuki 300 HP four-stroke outboards it cruises at 35 knots, getting you out to the fishing grounds in no time! Rigged with state-of-the-art Garmin and Furuno navigation, the boat also has livewells for bait storage and ice boxes to keep your food, drinks, and catch cold!

Depending on whether you’re looking for trolling action or bottom fishing, you have the option of customizing a trip to fit your needs. Trolling trips are focused on targeting Wahoo, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna, while bottom fishing is all about Triggerfish, Snapper, and Grouper.

Capt. Scott will provide you with all the necessary gear for the trip, including rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Just put on your favorite pair of sunglasses and get ready to make some memories!
