Background
I have fished since I was a child. My parents both loved to fish so it came natural to me. Absolutely love saltwater action because you never know what the next fish might be. I have fished here in Panama City Beach for 20 years now. Please look me up on Facebook also under Capt Salty Charters for pics and news.
Techniques
I like to bottom fish offshore for grouper, red snapper, amberjack, just to name a few. I also like trolling for king mackerel and mahi-mahi. Inshore I like redfish and spotted sea trout.

Inshore When the water temps are in the upper fifties in the open bay like we have now, seek out warmer waters. Explore the canals, creeks and bayous to find it and you will likely find trout and reds.… Read Full Report →

I would tell you this trip was not worth the money. I did tip them but overall I would not suggest them to your customers. He did not want to take credit card at first. Saying he usually deals in cash. I did not have the money in cash to pay him. Then when we did fish they made us feel like crap because we did not know what to do. They kept saying how much there fishing gear cost and how expensive fuel was for the boat. I had to finally shop fishing because I hated to mess his expensive real up. Overall riding out and back in was better than fishing. If you want nice folks just driving around great trip. If you want help fishing don’t go because they are to proud of there equipment. This trip was recommended but please don’t go if you want to have fun and not wanting to have to worry about stuff. When leaving captain did not tell us bye even after tipping him.

The boat was ready when we arrived at 7:00AM.  Welcomed on board, safety briefing, plan for the trip all discussed and agreed on.  The boat was comfortable and fully equipped - seating, refrigerator, head, etc….Everything was handled for us - lines rigged and baited, good directions on how deep to fish, tips for setting the hook; even help when we caught a big fish.  We hit Groupers, Trigger fish, Red Snappers and even some Mackerels as we were headed in.  We had a wonderful experience!  My thanks to Butch (our Captain) and Kyle for a very memorable day.  I would recommend them to anyone interested in fishing the Gulf.  Those guys are GREAT!

A nice experience on a beautiful day in the Gulf
Caption Salty did his best to get us some fish and we brought in a nice King.  It would have been nice to catch a few more but that’s how fishing goes.
Knowledgable and fun the caption showed us a good time and we would recommend him
Thanks Caption Salty for a fun morning

Captain Butch and his crew were very friendly and knowledge.  They new exactly where to go to find the fish and we had great results.  Also, gave us a wonderful tour of shell island where we saw several Dolphins, including baby ones.  Would highly recommend!
