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...

If you’re an angler looking for some fun, productive time on the water, then fall is definitely the time of year to be in Panama City Beach. As the water temperature cools, predator fish begin to gorge on the massive schools of baitfish preparing to migrate to warmer waters — the so-called “mullet run” — and that...

With the late summer heat bearing down on us during the day, the benefits of fishing the flats early are numerous – especially if you want to catch trout and redfish on artificial lures. For starters, it’s much cooler in the early hours of the morning and that makes fish a little more inclined to chase a lure.  Because the light...

The inshore bite throughout the numerous bay systems and along Panama City Beach is on fire right now! If you get out on the flats early, then expect to get into a very productive topwater bite for speckled trout and redfish. I have found the bigger trout to be holding in areas with sandy bottoms and big patchy grass beds with a water depth of one...
