A Foggy Bottom Fishing Experience in New Episode of “Chasin’ The Sun”

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., – When a change in the weather forecast wrecks a perfectly good fishing plan, Capt. Justin Leake and a fellow guide head out to a local hot spot and find plenty of saltwater action in Foggy Bottom Fishing, this week’s all-new episode of “Chasin’ The Sun.” The award-winning fishing and coastal lifestyle television series produced by Visit Panama City Beach will air on Saturday, May 27, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern / 9:00 a.m. Central on Waypoint TV.

On an unseasonably warm December morning, thick fog disrupts an offshore excursion for Capt. Leake and his cousin, Capt. Brent Berry. The anglers decide to do a little fishing until the fog burns off, so Justin turns to his Humminbird® CoastMaster® charts to pinpoint a near shore artificial reef just five minutes from the St. Andrews Pass.

Capt. Leake opts to send a jig to the bottom and he’s not very picky about the one that gets tied on. “When fishing reefs, the specific jig doesn’t matter because it’s all about the presentation,” says Justin. “When you’re sitting on top of a wreck, break out the ‘junk jigs’ – they get bit just fine.”

This proves to be the case as Justin and Brent enjoy non-stop battles against amberjack, red snapper and bonita. And with a bite this good, there’s no reason to go anywhere else!

Later in the episode, check out the United States Coast Auxiliary’s new paddle craft safety initiative.
