Light Tackle Offshore Fishing In Panama City, FL

Report Date: May 21, 2017

The fishing has been fantastic the last couple weeks. All the key players have made their way to this part of the Gulf. The bait is all along the beaches, nearshore wrecks, and reefs. Thankfully the Bait Barges are loaded with all the bait you could possible need. This itself makes life a lot easier for all of us.
Now on to the important part the FISH. For those that are looking more for a light tackle sport fishing adventure, look no farther than the mighty Jacks we have prowling the beaches and wrecks. Giant schools of Jack Crevalle are on the beaches and the notorious Reef Donkeys(Amberjack) are patrolling just about every wreck within 3 miles of the beach.


  For those that want to both catch great fighting fish and have a few to eat the King Mackerel are a great choice. I like to do late afternoon trips for the Kings, they always seem to bite better in the late afternoon and evening. We hooked a couple Sailfish and caught several gaffer Mahi while doing this the last few trips.


  For a longer combo trip, we can do all the above, plus add in some reef fishing for a variety of snapper and other tasty reef fish. While doing this we have also been catching lots of Mahi the last few weeks.
