We are blessed here in Panama City Beach to have so many different areas to fish. The gulf, bay, the waters around Shell Island and numerous bayous and creeks provide a wide variety of species and areas to fish. With Fighting Fins Charters you are sure to enjoy the best fishing experience – no matter what water you fish!

The inshore waters of the gulf are Captain Branham’s favorite areas for fishing. These gulf waters are teaming with many species of fish: red snapper, grouper, amber jack, king mackerel, spanish mackerel, cobia, and mahi mahi just to name a few. We even get the occasional sail fish and wahoo.

Saltwater fishing in the St. Andrews Bay offers protected waters and great fishing. We target speckled trout, redfish, flounder, grouper, black drum and sheepshead. If the wind is blowing or someone is worried about getting seasick this is the place to go.

Charter includes: bottled water, ice, bait, tackle and fishing license. Trip prices below are for 2 persons. Add $50 for a third and fourth person. I do NOT clean your fish, sorry but I am now at a “clean marina” that does not allow fish cleaning.
