Panama City FL Kayak Fishing

Kayak Fishing in Panama City Beach

Kayak Fishing in Panama City Beach is 2nd to none, like seriously it’s as good as it gets.

Our inshore fishing for trout and redfish will rival any flats in the country. Our bay waters are so pristine and clear you can see the gator trout laying in the shallows sunning and watching a upper slot redfish eat will give anyone chills time after time. If you are feeling a little more adventuresome then you can slide out in the Gulf of Mexico and catch Spanish and King Mackerel just right off the beach behind the Sandpiper Beacon on the 2nd sand bar.

Kayak Fishing Panama City FL Style

You simply troll a fresh frozen cigar minnow (from an awesome local business, likeĀ Sunjammers) on a live bait rig and hang on tight, they hit like a mac truck and pull like a freight train. The fastest growing craze in the local kayak fishing community is kayak bottom fishing.

Panama City Beach offers a unique gulf fishery with plenty of Red Snapper, Grouper, Trigger fish and Bull Reds within a few miles of our sugar white sands. Hobie Mirage fishing kayaks have a distinct advantage for gulf fishing because it allows you to keep your hands free and when the seas kick up the power the Mirage Drive offers makes any kayak angler feel like an old salt in no time.

There is no doubt in anyones mind that kayak fishing is here to stay, it isn’t a fad and everyone is doing it.

    This is a great post! I can personally attest that fishing in PCB is as simple as it’s stated above. I like to troll a frozen cigar minnow on a stinger rig and a trolling lure on the other rod while peddling my way across the water.
