Went fishing on Saturday, April 22, 2017

We went on a 12 hour trip and had a great time.  I’ve been out on a few different charters in Panama City and this was by far the best one I’ve been on.  Craig had us on fish the entire trip and Kyle made sure we always had bait on our hooks.  Great experience.  Would definitely recommend Tail Raiser charters and will be looking to book another fishing trip with them the next time I’m in Panama City.

To start out it was 3-5ft swells all day, not perfect fishing conditions. The boat captain kept us set up the wrecks were we all was catching fish. The captain and deck hand explained exactly what We needed to do for a better hook up ratio. We caught a lot of fish with very little down time. The captain kept us set up even with rough water conditions. The deck hand kept our hooks baited and fish on ice along with some tangles taken of. We brought home a 30lb king mackerel alone with 50 other keeper fish. I wouldn’t be afraid to say between the 6 of us we caught around 200 fish. We will be using the tail raiser charters on our next trip.

Enjoyed having yall and the company was great.  Come back and see us during snapper season.  Thanks for the review!

I could not have been happier fishing with Craig and Kyle.  Craig kept us over the fish all day and Kyle made sure to clear our catch as well as keeping bait on our hooks all day.  Craig even asked if we had plans after our charter because he was not busy after us and kept us our for an additional hr at no extra charge.  Kyle even had a couple of suggestions for restaurants that would cook our fish.  We opted for C-Level and we were not disappointed. $8/person and they fried, blackened and grilled our catch. Thanks for a great Day on the Gulf Tail Raiser Crew!

Just wanted to say thank you again to Captain Craig and Kyle for the MOST EXCELLENT fishing trip! All of us enjoyed ourselves immensely, both the boat ride (beautiful boat!) and the fishing, and caught loads of fish. The majority of us have never experienced ocean (gulf) fishing before, so we were all happy with the action (let’s just say there were some sore arms and shoulders for a few days after).  We were provided with fishing tips and encouragement throughout, and we were never want for bait—always quick to load us back up. We also took the local advice and had a fish fry the following day (so awesome!), with plans for a few more here at home during the snow season. And I can’t wait to see how the stories get embellished this summer as we sit around the campfire at our cabin :), as well as watch the video once it’s edited. Good times! All I have to say, next year, we OWN the Thanksgiving grouper! HA HA HA! Thanks again for the great memories! Beth, Don, Roger, Tom and Kenny

This was second time to charter this boat for us. The captain and the crew are very friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable. We were 6 people party. Three of us were beginners. But we all were able to catch fishes and had fun!!!
I will choose this boat again!!

The only thing to make our trip better would be to have fish that wanted to be caught!  Nothing to hang on the wall, but still had a good day.

Great boat to start with. Add in the fact that Captain Craig put us on fish all day, we caught our limit of King Mackerel by trolling. Kyle the first mate worked his butt off keeping our rods loaded with bait. It was an awesome experience. We will be back to do it again for sure. HIGHLY recommend these guys, you won’t be disappointed.

Fishing trip was great as was the Captain and 1st mate, couldn’t have asked for a better crew.  We not only caught fish but the Captain and 1st mate went out of their way to help us land a 68 lb Cobia. Everyone had a fantastic time.
