About the Captain

Bryan Clackler
Panama City Beach, Florida, United States
Member since March 2017
Captain Bryan Clackler was born a fisherman. He grew up in Alabama, where he used to fish and hunt almost every day: there were always ponds, rivers, and creeks to explore. For Bryan, catching fish and finding new places was never boring. But it wasn’t until he felt the taste of saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico – Captain Bryan was hooked and, when he was 20, he moved to Panama City Beach and started a successful charter business. With an excellent reputation and vast knowledge, Bryan has been guiding his friends and clients for over a decade.

Captain did a great job putting us on the fish. We are bass fisherman so we lost more than we caught but that is our bad lol
Overall experience was great, we ended up with plenty of fish and we will do this charter again next year! Highly recommend Salt Shakers!

The captain was great we all had a great experience on the water but when we got in things weren’t as great. We were unaware we had to pay to have our fish cleaned we have have been out of the Destin harbor several times and the boat captain and his crew cleaned fish for no extra cost. Out captain was great but his crew hand became a jerk after the captain left. I spent 1100 dollars for the trip gave each of my children 20 to tip one crew guy while we were waiting for over three hours to get our fish cleaned the crew guy pulled on of my four children aside and said go tell your dad he’s the worst tipper he’s ever seen. I hadn’t even made it back over to where the guys was at need less to say he got no money after that and if it wasn’t for my three boys preventing me from saying something to I would of gave him a piece of my mind. Because of my end experience with him I will never go out of Panama City again. Not to mention the guy not only said stuff to my kids he tried to hustle me saying how our fish weighed a certain amount and he got it cut down by 59 lbs to just give him that money. It was 6 cents a lb to clean the fish which cost me 130 then this clown wanted to hustle me for thirty more and then talk shit to my children. Great fishing trip horrible shore experience will never go again at least with that guy on deck.

Captain and Crew very knowledgeable and more than helpful with a party not familiar with deep sea fishing.  More than a lot of snapper and. Trophy Kingfish.  Great day
