Tail Raiser Charters

Tail Raiser Charters offers trolling and bottom fishing trips to the hottest spots out of Panama City, Florida. Offering flexible tours and packages that can be customized, the company is well-prepared for the current bite.

Step aboard a beautiful and spacious 35-foot Cabo, which comes fully rigged for a fun day of fishing. It is powered by twin 435 HP Caterpillar motors and is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics. Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the vessel features a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface. If you are up to a challenge, there is a fighting chair on board, along with outriggers and downriggers for a professional fishing experience. Inside, there is everything you need for a comfortable day out, including toilet and shower facilities. Relax in between the bites, enjoy your lunch in the kitchen. Take in the beauty of Florida while listening to your favorite tune.

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!"
