Want To Get Fresh?


Panama City Beach fishing is rife with potential, regardless of your preferences. The St. Andrews Bay System holds the largest seagrass beds along the Emerald Coast and is home to over 3,000 different species of wildlife! With average water temperatures of 70 degrees with warm and tropical breezes to freshen up the air year-round, there’s nothing stopping you from casting a line. Panama City Beach’s shallow flats, grass pods, and deep channels are known as the Florida Panhandle’s best redfish habitats. From fly fishing to light tackle, local fishing guides around the area will help you master the art of angling.

Or Are You Feeling Salty?


Panama City Beach’s picturesque shoreline is bursting at the seams with mackerel, flounder, and speckled trout that all deserve to be made into a trophy and placed above the mantle. Out on the bay and deeper out, you’ll find tarpon, redfish, and false albacore as well as pompanos, cobias, and snapper. There’s always something in season here at Panama City Beach! Try deep sea fishing and battle ferocious sharks and majestic sailfish, or fill up your cooler with Spanish mackerel for some delicious meals.

Grab Yourself A Charter Or Fly Solo


Alongside the 3,000 species of native wildlife, this little slice of tropical paradise is also home to the finest charter companies this side of the Gulf.
