Keith Burch

Member since April 2017 Panama City, United States
Background
Keith Burch is retired from the US Navy and is a native that grew up fishing Panama City. He has fished around the world and to his credit have landed 13 Blue Marlin and other pelagic fish over 100 lbs. Keith is known as one of the best anglers and captains in the area. He is very enthusiastic about fishing and showing his guest a wonderful time on the water. If you are looking to chase and catch fish Inshore or Nearshore than Captain Keith can provide some reel-breaking water action. Old Town Charters is kid-friendly and is very patient with the guests onboard. If you are looking for a friendly captain with the skill set and the knowledge to put you on the fish in Panama City , let's go fishing and make some memories.
Techniques
You can practice a variety of different fishing styles with Capt. Keith, who offers calm backwater fishing for anglers of all ages, as well as reef and wreck when seas permits. Most fishing takes place in the back country on the flats. The preferred method is using spinning gear with live bait such as mullet and shrimp. Fly fisherman are welcome onboard and the boat has a large flat casting deck and we will try to locate some tailing redfish. You will be fishing on a new 2110 Tidewater Baymax (Lady Gray) with a 4 stroke outboard, riptide trolling motor with the latest technology. Penn reels on shimano rods. No dated equipment on my vessel. Lady gray has a 10 inch draft and is perfect to get shallow, but will handle some big water. She will cruise above 40 mph to get you to the fishing spots quickly and smoothly. You will not spend very much travel time on my vessel. You will be fishing:)
