Do we need fishing licenses?

No. Your charter fee includes fishing licenses for your entire group. We take care of everything.

Do we need our own fishing equipment?

Absolutely not. We supply all of the specialized gear you’ll need to catch a boatload of fish. We also provide all the knowledge and hands-on assistance when needed to help ensure you know what you’re doing, so all you have to concentrate on is having fun.

What DO we need for fishing?

Nothing for fishing, but you’ll want to bring along a well-stocked cooler of your favorite food and beverages to enjoy while you’re out on the water. You may wish to reserve a cooler back on the docks to load your fish into when we get back. Other helpful items to bring on the boat include polarized sunglasses, a cap, and sunscreen. Depending on the weather, you may want a backpack that contains some rain gear or a light jacket. Of course, don’t forget the camera. You’ll want plenty of photos during your trip!

Is there an age limit for the charter boat?

There is no age limit. Kids love our boat and the excitement of seeing all of the fish. It’s a great experience the entire family will enjoy during your stay in the area and one you’ll want to take again. Everyone is welcome on our Panama City fishing trips!

How far will we be going on our Panama City fishing trip?

Our inshore charters stay within sight of land for the entire trip. Our deep-sea adventures can bring us from 10 to 60 miles offshore. We go where the fish are.

What kind of fish will we catch?

Depending on the season and what’s biting, we can troll for king mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and Blues. When venturing out to the deep, we like to target Black Grouper, Red Grouper, Red Snapper, Triggerfish, and Amberjack by bottom fishing around the abundant wrecks and reefs. Part of the fun of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is the wide variety of marine life that is eager to bite. Cobia, Flounder, Pompano, and Mahi-Mahi may also decide your hook looks good, and there’s always the possibility of a wayward Shark!

How long can we be on the water?

You can choose four, six, eight, ten, or twelve-hour trips, which offer several options to choose from for your convenience. Please see above to see what types of fish we will be catching for the trip you select.

Are the deposits refundable if the weather prevents a trip?

Yes. We will refund the deposit if the weather is too bad to go fishing. The captain will always make this call in the interest of safety.

Is it safe?

Absolutely! Capt. Harris is one of the most respected operators on the Emerald Coast. Team Aquatic Charters are fully equipped with Coast Guard certified safety equipment and communications. Relax and enjoy the ride. You’re in good hands.

What’s the best time to go fishing?

In Panama City Beach, it’s always time to go fishing. Some of the most productive waters surround us in the Gulf, and there is always fish biting somewhere.
