Justin invites lifelong PCB resident Griff Griffitts onboard to observe silver kings migrating within a few hundred yards of the crowded beach. Griff ultimately lands his first local tarpon along the sugar-white sands where he grew up.
Sight fishing clear, emerald green water is a favorite of local anglers when conditions are perfect. But perfection is rare, so Justin shares techniques for finding and catching fish under adverse conditions in the gulf and in the bay.
Which fish can you target year-round in almost any weather conditions, deep, shallow, stained or clear water with a variety of baits and tactics? Justin shows why the Redfish is the "go to" species that he never gets tired of chasing.
Humminbird's Bill Carson joins Justin to show how the new CoastMaster charts reveal secrets of Panama City Beach's waters. What they see proves it's not just red snapper populating these waters, but a smorgasbord of snapper for the cooler.
When overnight temps go low and the tides go lower, it forces Redfish to move. Justin and Travis break out a new micro-skiff to see how low they can go to ambush shifting redfish on the flats.
It's playtime for Travis and Justin when offshore guide Josh Sauls shares a secret honey hole and his fishing ancestry. Then luck shines when the guys find another sweet spot on the way back.
The irresistibly serene gulf waters off Panama City Beach lure Justin into taking Ed Zyak out to see what's biting. It quickly turns into a study session and a lesson. Patience + perseverance = success.
