Captain
Brian Sullivan

Member since June 2017 Panama City, United States
Background
I grew up in Panama City and have lived here for almost 40 years. As a young boy, I loved to fish and as I got older I knew I wanted to be on the water every day. I started out as a deckhand and worked to obtain a USCG Captain's license. I have fished the local waters as well as down in the FL Keys. Fishing is my passion and I wouldn't want it any other way. One of the best parts about being on the water is the people I take out – if they are having a great time, I am having a great time.
Techniques
Our boat is a 22' Cape Horn, which has an extended T-top for extra shade. On our offshore trips (up to 9 miles) we could catch a wide variety of fish – Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, and Grouper. On our inshore trips, we could catch a whole other variety of fish – Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. We provide a fishing license for up to 6 people, gear/tackle, bait, and a cooler with ice for your beverages. We also offer dolphin tours, where you can see dolphins in their natural habitat as well as snorkel around them. We can also customize your trip any way you want it – a little bit of sightseeing, snorkeling, exploring Shell Island?!
