Top Inshore Fishing Charters in Panama City

Inshore Fishing in Panama City

Looking for an unforgettable angling adventure along the Florida Panhandle’s Emerald Coast? Inshore fishing in Panama City offers visitors the chance to hook a treasure trove of species. From the back bays of Panama City Beach to the St. Andrew Pass, this area is home to a winning combination of grassy flats and winding water channels. 
This means that these inshore fishing grounds are constantly regenerating themselves, staying fresh for prized species such as Speckled Seatrout, Redfish, and the mighty “Silver King.” Florida and Tarpon-fishing go hand-in-hand, and this is true of Panama City, too. If you’ve always wanted to battle this favorite, head to the Gulf’s shoreline waters near St. Andrew Bay and get ready to bow to the king!
Tarpon is only available during the summer months, but inshore anglers visiting at another time of the year won’t be disappointed. Panama City is home to a year-round population of huge Redfish and Speckled Trout. If you want to hook yourself a Bull Red, head to Panama City Beach. The grassy flats and pods here are often considered to be the Panhandle’s premier Redfish hotspots!
As is the case throughout Florida, charter captains in this area will make sure you’re decked out with everything you need for a productive adventure, including a fishing license. Keen fly fisherman? Bring along your favorite rods and reels. Conventional fishing gear will usually be provided for you. Then it’s just a case of choosing what you want to hook, and heading out for a Panama Beach inshore fishing adventure you’ll treasure for years to come!

What People Are Saying About Inshore Fishing in Panama City

"Full day on 9/25"

Leif Large fished with Heritage Excursions on November 16, 2019

Captain Josh Sauls was great and put us on some nice gag and red grouper.

"Half day fishing trip"

David Gay fished with Too Hot 2 Handle Charters on November 11, 2019

This was a great trip. The weather was unpredictable so we opted to fish inland. These guys have experience in all types of fishing so the change was easy but still rewarding. We caught several fish and were able to combine the trip with a porpoise site seeing tour.

"BANGER!! of a Trip"

Calvin Hargaray fished with Heritage Excursions on November 11, 2019

Heritage Excursions gave me and my family a trip of a life time! Captain Sauls and his mates Know where the fish live! We were constantly hooked up every time our lines hit the bottom. By the end of the day we were wore out. The service was top notch and we took home some really great memories, cant wait till our trip next fall with these guys.

"Fishing with Capt. Josh"

Nick Dale fished with Heritage Excursions on November 8, 2019

I've grown up in Panama City, FL so fishing isn't new to me but Josh takes the it to the next level. He does everything he can to put you in the best position possible to land that beautiful snapper or if you are lucky enough, that huge fire truck (red grouper). I've also been to Shell Island with him, and it's really a great time for all to be had. Will definitely book with him in the future!

"Half day trip with Capt Josh"

"Full Day Trip "

Chris Lee fished with Heritage Excursions on November 7, 2019

This full day trip with Captain Josh met and exceeded my expectations. Extremely nice comfortable boat with a nice transom and an even more experienced crew. I will be using this charter every time I come to Florida!
