The waters off Panama City Beach attract avid fishermen from all parts of the world. The Gulf of Mexico, St Andrew's Bay and inland fresh water opportunities abound here. An estimated quarter of a million visitors come to Panama City Beach Beach each year just for the fishing.

One of the largest sport fishing fleets in the country is based in the area. The variety and abundance of catches offer fishermen of all levels of expertise the opportunity to catch some big ones. Catches include red snapper, grouper, scamp, Spanish and King mackerel, redfish, flounder, sea trout, bonito, mahi mahi, sheepshead, and bluefish, as well as amberjack, marlin, sailfish and shark.

The avid fisherman can enjoy saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrew Bay. Fresh water lake and river fishing is just a few miles away. Bay fishing has become increasingly popular. Panama City Beach boasts three piers, including the Gulf of Mexico's longest pier, Dan Russell Municipal Pier (City Pier), stretching 1,642 feet in length.

Large and small vessels are readily available at several marinas to take you deep-sea fishing three to twenty miles out. party boats carry 50 to 70 passengers into the Gulf of Mexico and anchor over fishing "holes" in search of the famous bottom feeders - red snapper, grouper and amberjack. Charter boats also make 4 to 12 hour trips with up to 20 passengers, dependent upon the boat's size and equipment carried. All vessels carry U.S. Coast Guard approved safety equipment.
