Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Panama City Beach

According to customer reviews, Big Fin Saltwater Charters, Got'em Fishing Charters, and Florida Panhandle Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Panama City Beach, Florida. Full list of top fishing charters in Panama City Beach.

The average price for a private 4 hour Panama City Beach fishing trip is $724, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,664 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Big Fin Saltwater Charters, Got'em Fishing Charters, and Florida Panhandle Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Panama City Beach.

The most popular fish species you can target are King Mackerel (Kingfish), Red Snapper, and Amberjack. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Light Tackle, and Trolling. Nearshore fishing, wreck fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

There are plenty of reasons why thousands of tourists return to PCB every year, and angling is one of the biggest. The sandy beaches may set this town apart from its larger neighbor across the bay, but Panama City Beach fishing charters are sure to blow you away, too. From the shallow bays to the deep water offshore, there’s something for everyone here. 
 
The St. Andrews Bay system offers up the largest seagrass bed in the Florida Panhandle, meaning there’s plenty for some hungry fish to feast on. Get ready to come into contact with Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Sheepshead, along with Pompano, Mackerel, and even Tarpon depending on the time of year. 
 
Head out beyond the bays and the Gulf of Mexico offers up endless rewards. The nearshore reefs are overflowing with delicious Snappers, Groupers, Cobia, and Amberjack, while Mackerel can be found in the open waters. Head out to the deep and you could be trolling for big game creatures such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Billfish, on what promises to be a trip to remember.
 
If you’ve just got a couple of hours to spare, you can hit the inshore waters for as little or as long as you want. Nearshore adventures will usually last around the 6-hour mark, while you’ll need 10 hours to make the most of the waters offshore. You’ll even find charters taking you out for a couple of days at a time, so come along and realize your fishing fantasies!
 

Rules & Regulations

Panama City Beach fishing charters come with licenses included for everyone on board, so that’s one less thing to worry about. Your professional guide will also be up-to-date with all the latest seasons and bag and size limits, so you can sit back and enjoy the fishing.

January

Even though it’s winter, there are plenty of productive fishing spots to be found. Target Vermilion Snapper and White Snapper on the reefs and get your dinner for the week sorted out.

February

February is the coldest month of the year, but fishing in Panama City Beach can be really hot. Hit the bay for Speckled Trout and Redfish, or go a bit further out for winter Bonito.

March

Spring has finally sprung and it’s time for some Spanish Mackerel and Vermillion Snapper action near the inlet. Bonito can also be found, while the first Cobia of the year are also making their way past.

April

With bait fish moving onto the beaches and into the bays, things are coming together nicely. Amberjacks join Snappers and Cobia nearshore, with Spanish Mackerel adding to the bay action.

May

The State Water Red Snapper season is open on the weekends, so book early to get out on the water. During the week, there's plenty of Vermilion and White Snapper, Triggerfish, Kingfish, and Mahi-Mahi.

June

The King Mackerel bite is hot and strong in Panama City Beach, so you're in for a treat. Don't miss out on the Red Snapper bite, as the season comes alive in style to fulfill your fishing dreams.

July

High season is here and everything is biting. Whatever you want, you've got it, with some monster inshore creatures making their way to the bay, plenty of delicious creatures on the reefs, and big game beasts offshore.

August

School's out and there's no better place to come. Offshore fishing entices pros, while reef fishing will also yield great rewards. If you're looking to entertain the little ones, then the calm inshore waters also offer up plenty! 

September

There's no end in sight to the fishing season, as the warm weather and range of fish entices anglers of all sorts to PCB. Red Snapper can be caught on weekends, so don’t miss your final chance to get a few for the grill. 

October

It’s hard to resist the last bite of Red Snapper on weekends, but there's much more to fishing. Make the most of the last of the offshore season to land Mahi and Grouper, while Flounder is the flavor of the month inshore.  

November

Attention shifts inshore come November, but that doesn't mean there's a shortage of action. Look for Redfish on a late fall day, but don’t forget about Sheepshead, Flounder, and Pompano that are calling your name.

December

Who needs turkey when you can have fresh grilled fish for Christmas dinner? This time of year is great to take your kids out on the water, as you fish the bay, go bottom fishing for Grouper, or catch Redfish around the jetties.

Amazing time to get out and enjoy fishing on the gulf coast. One thing I would say is that you should talk to your guide and ask what the best thing to go for is. They'll be able to give you more insight on what will give you the best luck!

We have older children 10 and 13, I wouldn't recommend an offshore trip for younger kids it does take awhile to get to the fishing locations and if they aren't good swimmers I would stay more inshore. Bring plenty of water to drink, it gets hot and you need to stay hydrated. Wear shoes with good traction, as the boat can be slippery and be ready to get splashed if the water is choppy.

My son and I Got onboard it was a brisk 42 degrees and breezy. Warmed up quickly as Captain Justin knew all the right spots. Had a great time. Caught a cooler full of Spanish Mackerel minus the three an uninvited Dolphin stole off our lines. We will definitely be back to fish with Captain Justin. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful, highly recommend.

CPT Calin and his buddy CPT Chris took 8 of us out for 5 hours. One boat had the old guys and one boat had the kids. Yes, the old guys won! These guys are awesome, they had both boats on fish within 15 minutes of leaving the dock. As you can see from the picture, these guys know how to target all species that are hitting. As an added bonus we got to see what happens when a dolphin decides it wants your fish more than you do, (twice). Highly recommend CPT Calin, it is worth every penny.

Really enjoyed the trip with Captain Bryan and Terry. Reeled in a nice bonita trolling on the way to the first drop. One more later between bottom fishing spots. Captain Bryan found us good drop spots resulting in steady fishing all afternoon. Nice variety of catch. Great boat setup with lots of room, fishing chair, wheelhouse with a/c, and comfortable seating. Nice conversation on the way back. Great day!
