The fishing here in Panama City is about as good as it can get. The bay is full of bait and is fairly easy to catch. We have been continuing with what's been working. Catch a couple hundred pilchards and head out to the near shore wrecks. Ounce there we chum the jacks, snapper and kings to the surface. The water erupts with action the minute the first hand full of bait hits the water. There is nothing like sight fishing big amber jacks and snapper. Here are a few pictures from the last few days.
When we get the fish up it is nonstop catching for as long as you can handle it.
The water is very clear right now so if you are going out on your own remember to scale down your hooks and leader to insure more hook ups. I have been using a 4/0 Gamakatsu circle hook and 40# fluorocarbon.
Panama City Fishing Forecast:
Snapper season opens soon and Tarpon are here.
Good luck on the water,
