About the Captain

Bryan Clackler
Panama City Beach, Florida, United States
Member since March 2017
21
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.
