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.
