The boat provides comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers and inside, there is a toilet, a shower, a kitchen, and a bed. What else is needed when spending your day on the water?

On your day out with Saltshaker Charters, you will always have a pole ready to land the big ones. The trips are four to twelve hours, so any angler could find a suitable package. Whether you want to spend your day trolling and bottom fishing nearshore or head further offshore, fish the wrecks and reefs – the Captain will accommodate your every need.

Your targeted species will include Red Snapper, Redfish, Sheepshead, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, and many more depending on the season and what is biting.

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.
