Panama City Beach, Florida
Join us from Mid May to Mid August to fish the annual Migration of Tarpon along the Emerald Coast and its pristine waters. Strings of Tarpon pass our sandy shores in water depths of 2-8 feet during these months giving you opportunities to target the Silver King whether you are Fly Fishing or using Conventional Tackle.
Tarpon fishing trips are based on 1 to 2 anglers and are a full day commitment and do require some driving. Our Tarpon trips usually last 7-8 hours with a nice beach break for lunch mid-day giving you some time to cool down in our crystal clear waters and stretch your legs if needed. You are more than welcome to bring your own gear if you choose, but all gear and equipment can be supplied.
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

CAPTAIN JASON SHEPARD (SHEP)
Captain Jason Shepard (Shep) is a Panama City, FL native who was raised on the pristine waters of the Gulf Coast. Growing up surfing, diving and of course fishing, his love for the water was constant. He loved it so much that he became one of the US Coast Guards Elite Helicopter Rescue Swimmers. With this came the ability to move around throughout the years, giving him time to explore his love for the outdoors and hone his skills and techniques in many environments.
He has been very fortunate to fish and guide in such locations as Florida, Carolina Lowcountry, Southeast Alaska, Northwest Michigan and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cuba, and Belize to name a few. His passion for sight fishing is fueled even more by putting clients on their first fish with a fly. When not guiding, you will find him traveling to new places around the globe to chase fish or behind his Bow looking for game.
Capt. Shepard is a member of several Pro Staff's the IFFF, Project Healing Waters, Florida Guides Association, National Association Of Charter Boat Operators and Captains for Clean Waters.
