About Specialty Charters
Castaway with a customized deep-sea fishing excursion out of Panama City Beach! For serious anglers looking for that big catch, let us plan up to 36 hours of the best fishing for you. Yes, you read that correctly, 36 hours! You tell us what you want to catch, and we’ll run wherever we need to go to target that species. Whether you are on the chase for Blue Marlin or Mahi-Mahi, be it 50 miles or 90 miles, we will go to where the conditions are favorable for that target fish. This customized deep-sea fishing excursion has become quite popular for the serious fisherman.
Our specialty trips include deep dropping, daytime swordfishing, and blue water trolling. On a deep drop trip, you can expect to catch Snowy Grouper, Yellow Edge Grouper, Blue Tile Fish, Golden Tile Fish, and an assortment of deepwater Snappers and Porgies. This trip is at a depth of water ranging from 400′ out to 950′. On our daytime swordfishing trips, we run 75 miles to the Desoto Canyon. Here the water is anywhere from 1200′ to 1800′. We are targeting a Swordfish that will weigh anywhere from 40 pounds to 200 pounds. These big game fish are known for their great table fair and back-breaking fight. This trip will reel in one fish, maybe two if we are lucky. Although, we usually also find some Mahi Mahi and Blackfin Tuna while in the Canyon. On our blue water trolling trips, we run to the Desoto Canyon and troll a five-rod spread for Pelagic Fish. These fish include Blue Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi-Mahi. Live bait included in any specialty charters.
For these specialty trips, we go much farther out, so plan to depart by 5 a.m. Travel time is usually a 2-3 hour ride out to the fishing grounds and subject to change to due inclement weather.
Gulf waters are famous for producing trophy-sized big game fish, and our crew provides years of fishing experience that is invaluable for making each fishing excursion successful. It is customary to give a gratuity of 10%-20% to the charter crew. Be prepared for a big catch and memories to last a lifetime!
