Got a trip to Panama City Beach coming up on July 30 through August 13.
Been multiple times and always kind of winged it as far as fishing goes. Caught lots of lady fish, hardtail, and used them for shark.

This time I'm bringing kayaks and looking for advice on whether or not what I am bringing is good enough. Let me know if you would bring anything else:

Redfish/trout: Have attempted to catch these while in PCB in the past but not had much luck. Will be bringing Gold Spoons, Chrome Spoons, Jig heads with various Norton plastics, possibly a redfish magic spinner or two.

If the conditions permit, I will be going offshore in the kayak (do not own a fish finder). Bringing some kingfish rigs for drifting/trolling cigar minnows. Also bringing some 125lb mono leaders with 10/0 circle hooks. Have some of these with slider weight clips and some for fishing weightless. Hope to drift or anchor up offshore and use cut bait or blue crabs for shark or big drum.

Really want to fish the bridge connecting PCB and Panama City. Not sure how or what to fish for though. Any ideas/tips? Tried it once from a boat but the current was quick and I didn't know what I was doing. Your tips don't have to be PCB specific here. Just in general, how would you fish a bay bridge with deep water?

Finally, I've only ever caught one founder there by accident but I'd like to catch more. How can I target them?

What do y'all think?

I'm not, but there was a Rockport area guy, Ty Southerland, and his wife, Teresa, that have a Youtube show called 30 Miles Out. This year, they moved to Pensacola, where they do their shows and kayak charters. I would Google their Youtube site and watch everything they have done in the Panhandle. I'm sure you'll learn something worthwhile. I ran into them one day in Rattlesnake Point Cove before they moved. Good luck!
