Panama City, FL Light Tackle Big Game Fishing

Report Date: April 27, 2013

This last week has been great for catching BIG FISH! Cobia are showing up in much larger groups traveling with huge schools of rays. These fish seem to be very hungry and eating everything you throw at them. Along with the Cobia, Jack Crevalle have arrived in giant schools along the beach. They are not good table fair, but are a great sport fish (especially on light tackle) they are a powerful fish and make long drag burning runs. We sight fish for them just like the Cobia. They will eat the same jigs and live bait so when we come up on the schools everything is ready. We have landed several nice Cobia this week as well as a dozen or so Jacks.

There is plenty of Spanish mackerel, Blue fish, and Lady Fish along the beach to keep steady action while looking for Cobia.

Sorry no pictures this report my SD card got wet and I am having problems getting the pictures off.

Panama City Fishing Forecast:

Kings are starting to show up. Hopefully we will get a couple more weeks of the Cobia run.

Target Species:

Cobia is the main focus right now. But we will fish for anything you want to.

Good luck on the water,
Capt. Todd Jones
