Panama City fishing with Tail Raiser is an exciting opportunity to get your hands full of Snapper, Grouper, Shark, Amberjack, Triggerfish, and many other species. If bottom fishing is not your kind of thing, you can enjoy some trolling action for Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, and King Mackerel.

Those who don’t want to go fishing Florida-style will enjoy an afternoon out swimming at Shell Island.

All fishing trips come inclusive with gear, tackle, bait, lures, and licenses. You only need to bring your favorite food, drinks, and the desire to catch fish!

I was born and bred in Panama City, and have spent my life on the water fishing and hunting. I love the outdoors and enjoy taking people fishing. I use a range of techniques depending on which fish we are targeting, and look forward to showing you the ropes - "I will put you on the fish!"

Captain put us on the fish limited out on Red Snapper in 30 minutes. Then put us in the Mackerel for the grandson creating a fisherman for life of an 8 year old first timer. First mate Mike was great nonstop action and making sure the grandson had the day of his life.

The crew and fishing was great. It was super hot, and the water very choppy, which is something no one can plan for. I do have some suggestions though from our experience. Dramamine! And if you are thinking of bringing kids under 12, stick to shorter trips or not at all. They simply can’t hang in the heat and tend to tire out quickly which leads to the dreaded whining.  This would be a great adult only trip (which is what we hope to do next time). Captain and crew were phenomenal and worked hard to make sure we had a great time despite Mother Nature making it a little more difficult than normal. Highly recommend!
