Same Old Service – New Fishing Locations. We are pleased to be able to assure you that it is still the same Capt. Mark and Capt. August and Capt. Garrison with the same great service you have come to expect. However due to Hurricane Michael moving things around a little we have found some great new fishing locations so you can be sure to have a fantastic day out on the water and bring home some great catches.
We will get you on the Big Ones at all our favorite spots!
Here at Kelley Girl Charters we are looking forward to the coming season and so we have made some big changes not only with our website but also some great new fishing spots. During the off-season we have been working very hard to find and secure the best deep sea fishing locations in this region of the Gulf of Mexico. Our number one priority is getting you, our clients, out onto the water and onto the best fish. When you are having a good time, we are having a great time.
Hurricane Michael had a devastating effect on the Panama City and Panama City Beach fishing fleets and we were very fortunate to still be here to serve the locals and visitors alike. Yes, we did suffer substantial damage to our 2 fishing vessels but we were so very lucky compared to many others who lost everything. Our two charter vessels are back better than ever with all new gear and are ready to go.
We are ready for an action packed season in 2019 so ‘You Better Book Early’ to secure your reservation.
Be sure to get your group together as soon as you can to secure the best dates for the season. If you want to fish for Red Snapper then you will want to book between June 11th through July 12th. If you want to fish for Amberjack then you will want to go in May or wait until Aug. Sep. Oct. …. If you are after Snook, you will want to go in April or May or wait until Sep. Oct or Nov for your trip. Other fish species and season open dates can be found here: saltwater-seasons-chart-gulf.pdf
We are sure that if you book your fishing adventure with Kelley Girl Charters you will not be disappointed. Just see some of our recent catches in the Gallery.
Some folks want to wait for peak season but we can assure you the off-season fishing can be just as great. The winter, spring and fall months can produce some fantastic catches.
