HI, my name is Allen with Scales and Tails Kayak Charters and Adventure, located in Panama City Florida.

I have been fishing since I have been eight years old and got into Kayak Fishing about twelve years ago.  I have been fishing anywhere from Cape San Blas to Destin Forida.  I own all Hobie kayaks mirage drive and I supply all your gear the only thing you will need to get is your fishing





refish scalesandtailsYou can contact me at (850) 890-7011. For scheduling please provide a 24- 48 hour notice for trip.The cost of my trip is $100.00 for four hours and $150.00 for a six hour trip and that is per person and I can take out three people at a time.

We mainly will be inshore fishing and bridge fishing. Offshore is also a possibility.  Targeted species are Red fish and Spotted Trout and some of the areas will hold Spanish Mackeral,Grouper, and sometimes Tarpon.

Whether you are a seasoned paddler, brand new to the sport, or new to the area, it is always good to know where to easily get your boat in the water.  Also many of us we like to seek out new places to paddle. 

Check out the map below to find our local Kayak launches and for literally thousands of launch sites around the country.

Did you know the US Coast Guard considers that both Kayaks and Paddleboards are vessels?
They are and are required to have the same safety equipment as other human powered vessels under most all conditions.  We want you to be safe (and legal) out there too, so here is some info courtesy of the State of Florida.


Here is what this means if you are using a paddleboard:

Unless the paddleboard is being used within a "swimming, surfing or bathing area," the paddleboard must have a USCG-approved life jacket for each person and a sound-producing device on board while on the water.
