Panama City, FL, Premier Capt. on Top 5 Reasons to Book Private Fishing Charters
Leading, 3rd Generation, Charter Fishing Captain, Mark Kelly, of Kelly Girl Charters, in Panama City, Florida, comments on Top 5 reasons families, groups or individuals should consider a trip on the water to experience a private deep sea fishing charter.
3rd Generation, Panama City Charter Fishing Captain, Mark Kelly, of Kelly Girl Charters, is one of the top fishing charter Captains in Panama City, Florida and the Florida Panhandle. Capt. Mark comments on 5 top reasons families, groups, or individuals should experience a trip on the water with a private deep sea fishing charter company.
A local charter fishing trip is a great way to experience the best things that Panama City, FL, has to offer. These fishing charters, available for hire, fall into two categories – public charters and private charters. Private charters take only a limited group of family, friends, or colleagues on smaller private vessels. On the other hand, public charters take on as many people as possible until they reach their maximum capacity, 40 - 60 persons perhaps. These are much larger vessels called head boats or sometimes party boats.
Captain Mark Kelly, of Kelly Girl Charters, advises on the advantages of booking a private fishing charter –
Get Personalized Service
“Private fishing charters offer personalized service according to the needs of their guests. The boats have all the necessary equipment, and all guests will have access to experts allowing them to have some exciting catches. The experts will be happy to train beginners trying fishing for the first time on a one-on-one basis.”
Capt. Mark says there are many different ways to bond with friends and family, such as catching up for dinner or chilling out at someone’s back patio but booking a charter fishing trip can take the family gathering to another level as there is something for everyone. Adventures on the high seas are the best way to stay disconnected from phones and spent quality time together. Private charters are also available for annual family gatherings, birthdays, bachelors, weddings, or even burials at sea.
Experience Nature without the Crowd
Panama City and Panama City Beach are quite popular among tourists with crowds of people looking to go to the same beaches, tourist attractions, and stores. Hiring a private fishing charter allows tourists and locals to get away from the crowds onshore and experience secret fishing locations that only the private charter Captains know of or may have even created themselves, using artificial reefs. Capt. Mark stated, “Private vessels being smaller and faster also get to the preferred fishing grounds sooner than the slower, larger vessels allowing for more fishing time for the clients on board. Private charter companies take guests to the spots that no other boats would go to, drawing larger, more productive catches while preventing guests having to fight to get a good position on deck.”
Let Someone Else Worry About the Details
Booking a private fishing charter allows guests to arrive at the scheduled time without all the hassles of obtaining the current permits and licensing. All details of the trip will be arranged and handled by the fishing charter company including abiding by local and federal laws. Instead of spending precious time planning everything, guests can relax and simply get excited about the day’s fishing trip.
Larger, public charters do not always have enough crew to take care of everyone on board, sometimes groups of 60 or more people. Since private charters only take small groups, 2 to 20 guests, the crew can help with baiting, getting the catch onboard, cleaning, and also provide tips and tricks on fishing and even share stories from their years of experience.
Capt. Mark highly recommends private fishing charters for the quality of service, knowledgeable Captain and crew and the highly personalized fishing experience catered specifically to the guests. Kelley Girl Charters has 4hr to 2-day fishing trips that are perfect for individuals’ needs and budget and can be contacted on (850) 866-5694 to book.
