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...

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. ...

  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,...

Recent changes in air and water temperatures have prompted many species to stack up in schools and gorge themselves while the food is still plentiful.  In many places, the pinfish are in big schools floating on the surface and, if you look closely, there are lots of speckled trout and redfish hanging out underneath them.  This is when...

Action and variety have been the trend for the past few weeks, with numerous species of predatory fish targeting the many “bait balls” scattered throughout the bays and along the beaches. Starting way up in the bay, trout and redfish have been pounding schools of finger mullet and menhaden.  We have been doing very well with...

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...
