Panama City Fishing Charter With Captain Ben
Enjoy fun Shark, Trolling and Bottom Fishing & Dolphin Tours onboard "Miss Emily" boat or off of the Panhandle Beaches & Bow Fishing or Flounder Gigging on-board our Jet Boat! All boat trips are $120 an hour, but trips over 11 hours are $100 an hour. For trips on our boats, no fishing license is required for up to 4 people. Rates: Shark Adventure on beach • $650** (most locations - depending upon weather conditions) • $750 for Cape San Blas or Indian Pass! All Day Trolling and/or Bottom Fishing Trips • 8 hours: $960 Dolphin Tours • $120 an hour. The boat will be all yours (up to 6 people). All night (before sunset until around 3-4am) shark adventure on beach • $900**, I recommend these because you usually get to fish both tides! 2-day shark adventure on beach • $1500**, all variables considered - these trips have the most success! All night shark adventure on boat • All night: $900 • Half day/night: $480 (but I recommend at least 5 hours for shark trips - the baits need to saok sometimes)! Bow fishing trip • $200-$400 (depending upon where we go and for how long). These trips are limited to 1-2 people. Perhaps 3 if one is a child. I dont supply gear anymore, so bring your own bows. Flounder gigging trip • $200-$400 (depending upon where we go and for how long)! also limited to 1-2 people. Perhaps 3 if one is a child. Flounder gigging trips start in Summer months and end around Christmas (depending upon climate). Afternoon trolling, then half-night shark fishing Trips • $900 Half-day or evening Trolling Trips • $480 * I do not recommend an all night sharkin' trip the night before you have to drive home (unless you live with-in a few hours). Schedule it a couple days before you have to leave, or get a half-day trip! You will feel rough after fightin' sharks all night! **For beach sharking trips I recommend buying a fishing license, as there is no license I can buy to cover other people when not on a boat! Three day licenses are available online at ************* or any tackle store, Walmart or tax office! Fishing, dolphin or eco-tours or boating lessons on your boat also available - if my schedule allows........ rates varies. Type of Experiences: • Shark Fishing • Trolling • Bottom Fishing & Dolphin Tours • Flounder Gigging What You Can Expect: I offer several different types of fully-guided trips. On some trips I will meet you in Gulf or Bay county and we will fish from a secluded, shark-infested beach where I run baits out with a jet-powered boat, cook hot dogs for everyone and tell wild stories around the fire while we wait for the big eaters (sharks) to bite. On other trips, I will pick you up in our diesel-powered charter boat at a local boat launch off of Thomas Drive in Panama City (Dolphin Drive Boat Launch). From there we will venture into St Andrew's Bay or the Gulf of Mexico for a dolphin tour, to troll for Mackerel, dolphin (mahi), tuna, etc. and/or bottom fish, or we can go shark fishing and or night fishing under the lights. Times of departure and arrival vary due to time of year, weather conditions, and duration of trip, and I have a 4-hour minimum for fishing and 3-hour for dolphin tour/fishing combos. One of my unique fishing trips is night fishing with bright lights and chum! There are often squid and baitfish all around the boat and we catch them on the spot, Then we fish right below and get into some really awesome action. This is how I used to commercial fish and I am the only charter boat that does it! After you do it once, you won't ever want to fish another way - it is many of my repeat customers' favorite type of trip! You avoid the heat, and we are always the only boat on any of the spots, or as far as you can see for that matter - unless you count shrimp boats! What To Expect Onboard: Emily is a 27ft long Sportfish (Cuddy cabin) originally built in 1975. Powered by a 120HP Perkins engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 9 knots. This boat takes 4 to 6 people. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
