Went fishing on Saturday, October 15, 2016

First trip with my sons and it was great.  Caught several Mackerel which aren’t the best for eating but had a great time doing it.  Justin and Brandon were ready to go at 6am sharp, the boat was plenty large enough/well kept with a nice cabin/bathroom (A/C) to take a break.  We took the a 4 hour trolling - would do longer the next time.  Brandon kept the lines baited and clear.  Could not have asked for a better effort.  We will return for some bottom fishing next time.

Fantastic fishing trip. Captain Justin Steele had us on the fish right away. Brandon did an awesome job keeping the bait in the water, the deck clean, and us happy catching fish. We caught our limit of King Mackerel.  The boat is immaculate. This crew’s goal is for you to have a great fishing trip and experience, which is obvious from the moment you come aboard. Will definitely look to book this charter again in the future.

Captain Steele put us on the fish and first mate Brandon was very knowledgable and did a great job keeping the deck clean and the hooks baited. As for the Billistic it is a very nice boat and can definitely accommodate any needs you may have. I definitely recommend the Billistic to anyone looking for a fishing charter in Panama City.

We had so much fun trolling for king mackerel caught about 100lb worth and Brandon was super nice and helpful made sure there was always bait on the hooks. He explained everything well and was very informative. After wards he showed us where we can get our fish cleaned for a reasonable price and Walking distance from the dock . Will defiantly fish with them again if we ever come back to pcb.

We were supposed to go out Tuesday but bad weather moved in . The captain said his boat and crew was very capable of handling the conditions, but said if we were able to go another day the water would be much calmer for us. So we did 3 days later and it was amazing. So many vermilion and white snapper, plus we pulled in 3 huge sharks biggest was 8’ 200lbs +. Great trip thanks Justin and Brandon

First and for most, the boat is emaculant. The captain put us on fish from the start. We maxed out on Vermilion snapper caught a ton of white snapper along with 3 huge bullsharks 2 of which we brought on the boat. The overall experience was excellent. I would recommend this Charter to anyone and everyone.

Captain Steele kept us on the fish and Brandon worked his ass off for us. We had an amazing time and I can guarantee you that we will use them again!!!!!  We caught our 16 fish limit in the first 1.5 hours but we stayed out the full 4 hours and continued to catch other fish.

Short 4 hour trip for my son’s first experience.  It was an awesome trip.  Captain put us on the King Mackerel and we limited out.  My son also landed, with the help of great deck hand, an 80 inch Sail fish.  We also caught several Bonita, a few nice Spanish mackerel and one small Mahi.  Awesome experience on a very nice boat with an awesome crew.  Could not have asked for a better time.

Four-hour trawling trip perfect length for 11yo’s attention span.  He loved it and is already planning a charter for next summer!  Awesome Deckhand Brandon.  He worked fast to make sure we always had hooks in the water.  The one person in our party who had been charter fishing “lots of times” told me it was the nicest charter he’d ever been on.  We’ll be back.  Will do one of the longer excursions when my son is older.

Sunday June 19, 2016 we went on a 4 hr fishing charter aboard the Billistic. WHAT A FATHER’S DAY!!!!
Can’t say enough good things about the boat, Justin the skipper, & Brandon the deck hand. Our party consisted of myself, Ryan my son-in-law, & his 12 yr old son Gavin. First deep sea charter for Gavin & myself. I had done a salmon charter on Lake Michigan & Ryan had done a big group deep sea charter previously. This was the best by far! My only regret was that we didn’t do the 6 hr trip. Our target fish were King & Spanish Mackerel, but if we had done the 6 hr trip, we would have gone after Red Snappers also. Next time. The day was a little windy & the water choppy but the Billistic is a big enough boat that it gave us a smooth ride. This wasn’t the best fishing conditions either but Justin found them for us & HOW! We caught 16 fish total but the biggest thrill was when Gavin landed a 48” Barracuda! Brandon did a great job baiting & rigging our poles but his greatest feat was keeping us & himself safe when landing that monster. I have nicknamed Gavin, “CUDA”. LOL He will remember this fishing charter the rest of his life & that makes it all worth it !!!!
Highly recommend this charter.

We had an 8 hour trip this afternoon from 12-8. Justin and Brandon were great! We caught our limit of red snapper shortly after reaching the fishing grounds. We caught two sharks and a cooler full of whites and other fish. The boat was great as well and had all the features required for a comfortable trip.

The Anderson fish market will clean your catch for about $.50 per pound and is assisting us with shipping our catch back to us.

We had a great experience with friends and family!

Our first stop we caught our limit of Red snapper, a really nice Cobia, and a large grouper! Second stop we fished for vermillion snapper and caught twenty or more! Third stop we caught a lot more red snapper although we were already limited out. THEN towards the end of that third stop, one of my boys reeled up HALF of a red snapper! (The bottom half had been eaten by a shark. Our mate Brandon then went and got a different rod/reel and fished for about ten mins and the shark hooked up! We fought him for about an hour and it was an 8 foot long 200 pound BULL SHARK!!!! Wore my ass out!!!! We could have kept him but I don’t care for shark meat so we released him! Stopped one more time after that and I hooked onto another shark but his teeth cut my line before I could get him in.
This was an AMAZING 8 hour TRIP!!!! My four boys were in awe and SO EXCITED about the shark and the 100 pounds of fish we caught. We had about 50 pounds of fish filleted at the dock and then had the Dockside restaurant cook them for us! SO FRESH and SO GOOD! I’ve been on over a dozen fishing trips and this was the best I have ever been on!!!!!
I HIGHLY recommend this captain and mate!

Captain Justin Steele will put you on fish no matter what.  We had a storm coming later that evening with some early swells 5-6 feet. Justin called us 5 am to give us the option to call of the trip. We decided to go anyway. And we sure are glad we did. We had the time of our lives. Justin can find the fish for sure. So don’t hesitate to book your trip on Balistic!!

This was a trip for my sons and son in laws. For three of them it was there first deep sea fishing trip. I choose a 4 hour trolling trip to take them on because I have been on a lot of trips, and first timers need a good experience without getting sea sick.
We were fishing within 30 minutes of leaving the dock and catching fish fast.
The captain kept us on fish and we caught our limit in about three hours. Our deck hand (only 22years old) was awesome. He lived and breathed fishing, was very knowledgeable and professional. The boat was very clean and the cabin air was extra cool.
I am going back out on a bottom fishing trip with them.
This trip was perfect and we could not have asked for a better time.
Thanks for making this wonderful fishing experience for us.
I’ll be back.
