We had another epic day on the water today. The seas were perfect, the weather was perfect and the fishing, well pictures do help. This young man put this Cobia to the rail in record time.
We ended up with a limit of Red Snapper, two King Mackerel and a mess of Mahi Mahi to complete the box.

We had a really good day today. The weather was perfect and the sea state was flat as I have ever seen it with big a slow ground swell. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week being about the same. We fished in 110 feet of water way down to the west on some natural bottom for big red snapper. The bite was slow in the beginning but picked up around 9 o’clock when the big boys started chewing. We managed to put a pretty good box of fish together. The total was 52 pounds for six fish. That’s not bad. We hooked a couple of Grouper but could not seal the deal, that’s fishing.
Fishing was awesome as usual, We started out on some of those elusive Trigger Fish which by the way we could not get away from. Every drop was game on. Then we moved on to Almaco Jack’s, AJ’s and a nice Grouper. Weather this time of year is fantastic, not to hot. So it makes for a very enjoyable day on the water. We caught fish for everybody.
Another great day on the water. The elusive Triggerfish opened for us and we managed to catch a few.
We were fortunate that weather cooperated as we had to dodge a few minor rain showers. The Day turned out beautiful as do most days here in the Panhandle. The fishing was awesome and my Motly crew were certainly up to the challenge.
Summer is not over so give us a call and lets get you out on the water. The fishing is great as the big Kings are here in force and ready to give you a run for your money.
Wow! What a couple of days on the water. The fishing was fantastic the day before, during and after Fathers Day. We were wearing them out! Fish are biting on just about any bait we put in front of them. So, if you are thinking about going fishing here in Panama City Florida, come now cause it’s on fire.
The last couple of days were beautiful on the water. It was flat, and the fish were hungry. We started out by picking up some hard tails and cigar minnows at the buoys. We then headed offshore and anchored up on a well known spot. We started catching AJ’s on the surface. It was all you could do to get a live bait away from the boat, as the AJ’s were on it almost immediately. They hit artificial’s just as well.
That big king was a nice bonus! Catch and release is fun when the fish cooperate like today. It was more than we had expected and very enjoyable.
After we tired of the AJ’s, we headed inshore and found some floating debris that was loaded with small Mahi-Mahi. Fishing Frenzy is all I can say to describe a hungry school of Mahi. We bottom fished a bit and landed a few White and Vermillion snapper for dinner.
All in all it was a stellar day on the water.
Good Luck and Tight lines
