Hooked Up Charter Boat Fishing Trips-Panama City Beach-30A

Capt. BJ Burkett, Owner and Operator of Hook’em Up Charters, is one of the leading charter fishing captains in the panhandle of FL offering 30A deep sea fishing charters. He has built his business from the ground up and caters to folks from all across the United States. Over half of his business travels from the 30A area to fish the Gulf of Mexico, off the sandy shores of Panama City Beach.

The ‘Hooked Up’ is docked at Capt. Andersons Marina, Slip 1E, and the NEW Boat ‘Game Changer’, just two boats over in Slip 3E. We are located just 18 miles east of 30A and South Walton County and accommodate small and large groups of up to 36 people. South Walton and Bay County rely on Capt. BJ and his fellow captains and crew to provide the best quality fishing trips for reasonable rates.

Compared to the charter fleet in Destin, Hook’em Up Charters is a little easier on your vacation funds for the exact, if not better, quality fishing trip. The 30A and Destin areas are known to be a bit overwhelming in the peak of the season and can make traveling for a fishing trip taxing and stressful. Hook’em Up charters is located just 30 minutes east of 30A, where the traffic is light and the fishing is great.

Grayton, Rosemary, and Seaside are just a few of the scenic communities you will travel through on your way to Panama City Beach. Driving along the coast, past the sand dunes and pines builds the anticipation for your fishing trip that day. There is no better view of 30A than from the water. Whether you are fishing down the beach or offshore in a 30A deep sea fishing charter fishing for Red Snapper, the view from the water coming back inshore will take your breath away.

Now, if you would like to travel a little further to fish where anglers rarely get to go, we also have a fishing charter boat in Apalachicola, Fl. The Lady Raye, located in Apalachicola, around 1.5 hours from Panama City is offering full-day and multi-day trips for the serious fisherman. This area is much more remote and not heavily fished like the Destin and Panama City areas. Capt. Jimbo knows all the best spots which means more fish and larger catches. More Info.

Capt. BJ is a 3rd generation fisherman in the local waters. He knows all the hotspots to make your trip a success regardless of what you desire to target. Feel free to contact Capt. BJ for your next fishing adventure. He would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.


Whether you choose the ‘Hooked Up’, which can take 16 passengers, or our new boat, ‘Game Changer’ taking 20 passengers, ~ or ‘BOTH’ ~ you are sure to have an excellent day out on the water. We provide everything you need for fishing including high-quality rods and reels and bait. You just need to bring your group and your preferred food and drinks.
