Fishing opportunities abound in Panama City Beach. You can take a deep sea fishing charter in the Gulf of Mexico, fish off one of the piers, or even try a river or freshwater lake.


Getting a fishing license is easy. You can but one at a sporting goods store, get one online at myfwc.com/license, or call 888-FISH-FLORIDA. Kids under 16 don’t need a license to fish in Florida. The cost is only $17 for an annual saltwater fishing license, and many fishing charters include the license in their price. So be sure to check with your charter company before you go!
