Our most popular trip! 

Forget the bad experience you may have had on an old party boat. Put aside the memories of roaring diesels, the stench of bait buckets and the heaving of rough seas. On the “Last Local”, all you will sense is the sweet smell of the Gulf air and the faint sounds of a clean burning Yamaha. The seas will be nice and calm for the trip, with land well in sight. Pure enjoyment!

On the open waters of the Gulf, we will pursue the “heavyweights” of the reef. Grouper, snapper, amberjack and king mackerel are the common target species that live over the many natural and artificial reefs just off the coast.

These trips are family friendly and are customized for all experience levels.

From the calm bays of St. Andrews to the beaches of the Gulf, we will target the hottest bite on the water! Speckled trout, redfish, flounder, gray snapper, sheepshead and spanish mackerel are the top targets.  

These trips are recommended for anglers with good spin casting skills.

Tarpon Fishing

Full day - 6 hours
$ 850 1-2 Anglers
  • Booking June to July Only
  • 2 Anglers Max
  • Add fishing time at $100 per hour

Pursue the ultimate game fish, the Silver King! Capt. Vann has been chasing tarpon on local waters for over twenty years and will bring that experience with him to help put you on fish. Panama City Beach is home to some of the best tarpon fishing in the state. The peak of the tarpon migration heats up in June and continues through July. Nothing beats casting in front of schools of massive tarpon as they cruise down our emerald beaches!  

These trips are recommended for the experienced adult angler with good casting and fish fighting skills. Extreme patience and the ability to deal with summer heat are required.

Sea Sickness Policy

Nothing will ruin a day on the water like sea sickness. No one is fully immune from it. Some people are simply more susceptible to its symptoms. Roughly one third of the population are highly susceptible to motion sickness. The captain is responsible for the overall safety and well-being of the crew. In the unfortunate event any crew member becomes ill from sea sickness, the captain has full discretion to cancel the remainder of the trip and return to port. Under this circumstance the trip is considered final. There are no refunds of charter time lost or money due. Please understand the captain want’s nothing more than a truly enjoyable experience on the water for every client but cannot be held liable for the illness of crew members.

Safety first!

The captain is responsible for the overall safety of the crew. Per United States Coast Guard regulations, all persons on-board are under the captain’s authority and are his ultimate responsibility to keep safe while underway. Please respect the requests of the captain to help keep your trip a safe and enjoyable experience.
