Background
My father wanted to charter fish out of Panama City, FL when I was 12 years old. We started our charter fishing business in 1965. We have continued in the charter fishing business for over 50 years as Capt Bob Zales Zodiac Charter Fleet as we once owned and operated 5 vessels. We now own and operate 1 vessel, LEO TOO, and are located behind Capt Anderson's restaurant at Capt Anderson's Marina on Panama City Beach.
Techniques
We offer fishing trips from 4 hours to 12 hours. Our vessel LEO TOO can carry up to 25 people. We offer trolling and bottom fishing and sight seeing and sunset trips, bachelor and bachelorette trips, and burials of ashes. We have fished off Panama City Beach over 52 years and have the local knowledge and experience to provide one of the best fishing experiences any where. We troll for king mackerel and bottom fish for all reef fish. We are experienced in all types of fishing and are proven tournament winners in a variety of fishing tournaments since 1972. Capt Bob is fully licensed by the USCG and the LEO TOO is USCG certificated to carry 25 passengers. Capt Bob is a recognized industry leader across the country as he has been actively involved in fishery issues on all government levels, including testifying before Congress on many important issues.

We all share our serious concerns for everyone affected by the covid-19 virus issue, those who may have symptoms as well as those whose lives are being disrupted and negatively affected. On the LEO TOO we have always worked to provide a safe, comfortable, and clean environment for our customers. During this stressed period we have initiated increased efforts to provide a clean and safe vessel for you to feel secure and be able to enjoy your fishing experience. We are now using more disinfectant cleaners to clean the vessel after each trip, providing disinfectant soaps for you personal cleaning, hand sanitizers, and sanitizer wipes. After each trip and between back to back trips we are disinfecting the areas on the vessel where people gather and each rod and reel used. We are taking every precaution possible to ensure your safety and health. In addition to these efforts and for the next few months we will only be providing full party trips, meaning only your party will be on your fishing trip. While we will lose some fishing trips due to not offering joined trips, we feel your safety and health are more important. You, your family, and/or others in your party that you know will be the only people on your trip. This will help alleviate any concerns about having someone you do not know on your trip. On our web site we keep current information on conditions in our area of Panama City Beach and Bay County, FL. This info is updated on a regular basis so you can plan your trip. Currently there are no known cases of suspected or actual infections to anyone in Bay County. The closest infected person is in Okaloosa County, 50 miles away. Our beaches, the hotels and restaurants, and tourist sites are clean and active. The fishing is great and the weather is warmer every day. We have a great outlook for our fishing season and look forward to your trip with us. Book your vacation and fishing trip today. We are ready to accommodate you, your family, and friends. Capt Bob Zales, II
