Captain Pat Dineen - Panhandle

Captain Pat Dineen of Shalimar, Florida, has been a licensed captain for 20 years and his personal guide service “Flyliner Charters” is celebrating its 10th year this year.  He is also the captain of “Private Sportfishers” for Campbell Fishing Team for 9 years.

Dineen’s guide service concentrates on the inshore/nearshore waters of Destin and Panama City while my Campbell Fishing Team areas are the offshore blue waters of the northern Gulf, the Bahamas, and Mexico. His expertise is in fly-fishing and sight fishing, and particularly like redfish and tarpon.  He is equally comfortable fishing offshore and inshore. Dineen fishes out of three boats: Pathfinder 2200TE with Yamaha F150 and tower, Hells Bay 16 Waterman with Mercury 40 and a 47’ Buddy Davis with Detroit power.

Pat’s tournament experience has been offshore and he has taken prize money several times in varying categories. He feels very fortunate to be able to make a living doing something he enjoys so much in an area with such a variety of fishing opportunities.  His focus while charter fishing has always been to help his clients become better anglers and to ensure they have an enjoyable and memorable day on the water.
