Recent cold fronts and lots of rain have kept the charter fleet dockside lately but, on the days when we can get out, the fishing has been really good. Around the pass, there has been a lot of action from Spanish mackerel and bluefish as well as a few redfish here and there.  Fishing deep and close to the rocks is likely to entice some of...

With Hurricane Michael still fresh on our minds, it's important to be aware of the storm’s effect on our bay system.  Debris is seemingly everywhere and that includes the waterways.  Sunken boats, downed trees, broken docks, new sand bars and other hazards are just under the water's surface.  If you find a hazard, make...

Fall means football and county fairs to a lot of people but, for me and many other area anglers, summer’s end means incredible fishing.  Cooling temperatures and lots of bait have the fish looking to fatten up for winter. Inshore on the flats, trout and redfish have gone into “all out eat mode” and can be caught on a variety...

It’s a fantastic time to be fishing the waters in and around Panama City Beach, regardless of what you’re trying to catch.   The huge quantity of baitfish in our bays is nearing the point of absurdity and there seems to be no shortage of predators taking advantage of seemingly endless feeding opportunities. In the shallows, the...

We’ve experienced quite a few thunderstorms over the past couple of weeks, but the bite around the bay has been really good. Speckled trout are stacked up in areas that transition quickly from shallow grass to deeper sand. The presence of bait and current are definite giveaways when looking for feeding fish. On falling tides, I target the...

Red minnows are piling up in the bay and lots of fish have been following them (and feasting on them) at every opportunity.  Now is a great time to go fishing in Panama City Beach! When the bait balls are in open water, it’s common to find bonita, mackerel, ladyfish, jacks, blue runners and blue fish voraciously feeding on them. ...

Although the weather has been less than ideal over the past couple of weeks, the fishing continues to be excellent! Mangrove snapper have piled up on shallow water structures throughout the bay and have been quick to bite for the most part.  Anchoring up current and dropping back a flat lined live glass minnow, shrimp, pilchard or similar...

  What a fantastic time of the year!  Air temperatures have finally broken into the 80's, water temperatures are in the low-to-mid 70's and the fish are cruising for easy meals. Along the beaches, the pompano bite has been absolutely on fire in the surf.  Whether you target them by boat, at one of the piers or from the beach,...

If you haven’t already retrieved your fishing gear from the closet and oiled up the reels, then now is a great time to do so.  With water temperatures hovering around 70 degrees, many species of fish have been making their presence known in local waters. Just off the beaches, schools of Spanish mackerel, bonita, jacks and redfish have...
