Going fast!

NW Florida Fishing Tours invites you to explore the beautiful Gulf Coast out of Panama City. Come see Florida exactly how it is meant to be seen. Join an experienced professional and travel to places that no other boats can go to!

No matter what fishing experience you’re hoping to have, you can trust that Captain Russell will help you get the most out of it. Check the bite in the amazing game-rich environment close to shore or venture out to the Gulf for some nearshore action.

NW Florida Fishing Tours are great for the whole family. If you want to introduce your kids to fishing, Capt. Russell is your best choice. He is a great teacher who loves putting a smile on a child’s face.

Go for Amberjack, tasty Snapper (when in season), King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Bonito, Amberjack, Cobia, or even occasional Sailfish. When fishing with Captain Russell, you are in for a treat! Target Gag and Red Grouper, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper or Black Seabass. Test your angling skills and go for Blackfin Tuna if the conditions allow. Just let the captain know which fishing technique you want to use - from light tackle to spearfishing, he can do it all.

You will have your fishing adventure aboard a 25’ Carolina DLV center console. This boat was built in 2015 with comfort and space in mind. It can comfortably take up to six anglers and is outfitted with all the necessary navigational and fish finding electronics. As well as that, there are many other professional tools and accessories to save your time while searching for fish.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You only need to bring your own food, drinks, and appropriate clothes. If you want to catch your fish with a fly, let your captain know in advance and he will provide you with the needed equipment.
