Background
I was born and bred in Panama City, and have spent my life on the water fishing and hunting. I love the outdoors and enjoy taking people fishing. I use a range of techniques depending on which fish we are targeting, and look forward to showing you the ropes - "I will put you on the fish!"
Techniques
I do multiple styles of fishing because all fish are different and if somethings not working I will change it up. "I will put you on the fish"

Selected Tail Raisers based on good ratings.  Booked an 8 hour trip.  Weather was dicey that day.  Capt. Craig worked around the weather, getting us a limit on snapper and some nice kings.  Ended up coming in early to beat the weather.  He only charged us gor the 6 hours.  Great trip.  Mate Mike kept us fishing the whole time.  The two were an excellent combination.  Everyone had a great time.  We will be back with Tail Raisers again.

We had an excellent experience with Craig and Mike. Caught our limit quickly and moved on to trying to catch some bigger fish. Will definitely be using these guys again next year.

Originally a 3 hour PM shark fishing trip. Captain did not think we would have good results at that time. He rescheduled us for Sunday morning. He put us on the fish. Caught plenty and had a great trip. Would recommend him anytime.

We booked a bottom fishing trip for my extended family to get out of Panama City and experience the Gulf waters. It was all we could hope for, with the 4 of us catching fish almost non-stop we we’re able to see quite a few different species and reached our limit in no time. Captain Craig gave extra attention to my younger nephew, to make sure he got the technique that landed more fish—which helped a lot.

We had an awesome time fishing. The crew worked very hard to put us on fish! They also took the time to explain to us what they are looking for when they take you out. Weather you want to learn more about deep sea fishing or you just want to get out for a few hours and fish Tail Raiser Charters should be your number one choice!

We booked last minute after another booking cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.  And what a blessing in disguise!  Captain Craig and Eric were professional, knowledgeable, and absolutely awesome. We caught a fair number of in season snapper, mackerel, and Bonita.  Overall, will absolutely book with these guys again.

We had a great morning on the Tailraiser!! They warned us that it was pretty rough in the gulf and gave us the option of attempting it, trolling in the bay, or cancelling. We were warned that the fishing in the bay may not yield much. We opted to give it a try but it was way to rough so stuck to the bay. We caught some fish and had a great time. Craig and Andy were awesome!! We now have some great memories that will last a lifetime! We will definitely go out with these guys again next time we’re here.

There was a group of four of us. Craig was very flexible with us and even called the day before our scheduled trip to let us know the winds would be high and offered to take us out the next day when the weather forecast was better. We went ahead a rescheduled. Craig and Kyle were great! They are very knowledgable and super great guys! We had a great time, caught a lot of fish and they even cleaned them for us! I’d definitely recommend a charter trip with Tail Raiser!!!

I feel the captain should have been more direct in his recommendation. He asked what we wanted to do then simply told us not to expect too much then went on. Since we have a lake house we all really wanted to enjoy the day and catch some big fish but if he has been more direct we would probably have gone bottom fishing instead of trolling. Just as in any profession it is up to experts to recommend and if clients go against his recommendation it is their fault. As a result trip disappointing not because we didn’t catch as many fish as expected but because we weren’t advised appropriately especially since he knew it was not going to be a good a day

Hauw Han does not recommend Tail Raiser Charters

A very good experience dealing with this captain.  We did not get to go out because of the weather, but there was great communication and prompt answers from the Captain.  He le us know in plenty of time that it would be best to cancel the trip because of the weather.  Also a quick refund of our deposit.  I would use both this service and boat again.

We were originally booked for a Monday afternoon and the captain called me the day before warning of weather.  We kept in constant contact and scheduled the trip for the best possible outcome - the captain didn’t just “check the box”.  He Was focused on us catching fish fro the start.  After I paid the balance due and was on the way back to the resort - he called my cell to say that I gave him too much money (it was actually intentional as a tip).  How many people would actually call to say you have them too much money??  Highly recommend - good integrity.  My 14 year old son caught a great King

Our original tripbwas scheduled for sunday but we were inly a few hours in and a storm came rolling in. Ee had to cut the trip short but were able to reschedule it for tuesday. It ended up being a beautiful day even though we didnt catch what we hoped for we caught many others that were equally as exciting. Craig and Kyle were so helpful and just as excited as we were. It was a great time and will definitely find them next time we are in PCB! Thanks Craig and Kyle!!

Definitely a trip to remember! It was my first time out and my first fish was a GIANT red snapper! Captain Craig and Kyle were great teachers as well as “cheerleaders”! Didn’t limit out but it sure wasn’t due to lack of effort! We had several good bites that we just couldn’t get on board. I think had we not been a little late getting to the boat and had scheduled a few more hours we would’ve caught more than we could’ve​ kept! Had a great time and can’t wait to go out again! I think I just might be hooked on this whole fishing thing! Thanks once again for a great time guys!

Photos don’t do justice to the wonders that you see and feel when you’re surrounded by God’s creations. The captain was was extremely helpful in all regards before and after the trip and his first mate Gilligan I mean Kyle was/is his equal. We caught plenty…. had a great time and arrived alive.We’re going out with them again and there’s not a thing I’d change in hindsight.I’d say wuth confidence that they are all they portray to be with ethics above reproach.
