November 12th  Pensacola Fishing Report.

Iím going to keep it short as I think the photos will tell the tale!

Itís been a redfish extravaganza over the past two weeks. This has to be one of the best starts to the annual redfish run Iíve ever seen.  So far on most trips anglers have been catching double digits. Weíve had some 20 and 30 fish days. Todayís trip (11-12-2014) we boated 32 reds and only had two anglers on the boat. These reds are big averaging about 18 lbs Ė 22 lbs with some topping the scale over 25 lbs and every once in a while we boat one over 30 lbs. Over the past few trips weíve had a couple fish over 41Ē. These trips are pretty much all catch and release trips.

We are getting another major cold front in the middle of this week and that should really turn the reds on, as if the bite could get any better.

If you would like to experience this awesome fishery, give me a shout. Iíve got a few days left open in November, and December is getting pretty booked, but there are some spots still left open.

Thanks for stopping by, letís get you hooked up on a Trophy Redfish today.

October 21st, 2014 - Fishing Report  -Pensacola, Florida

 The past week has been outstanding for King Mackerel in Pensacola Bay. Live bait (Menhaden) is the bait of choice. While catching these Kings, we are also catching Jack Crevalle and Sharks. This style of fishing will last till around mid November and then weíll be going after the bull reds that will start to show up right around November 1st -10th

Letís talk about trout and reds on the flats. The inshore bite on the flats in October is typically a great month for inshore fishing, but it didnít started out that way. Not too many captains will post reports saying the fishing was slow when it is, but honestly itís been a very tough start to October. Even though itís been a challenge these past couple weeks, we are still catching fish, but we really have to watch the tides, and pick the right conditions for the clientsí needs. 

So what do I expect the last 10 days of the month? Better fishing. Thatís because the tides are going to get better and weíll be getting some much needed cold fronts, and that should kick off the fall fishing that we are more accustomed to by now. I will be fishing a bunch next week both morning and evening trips, and Iíll post some reports and hopefully I will have good news. If itís not Iíll let you know. I feel that if the fishing is slow, let the client know what to expect so they have an informed decision whether to reschedule the trip or take their chances. This policy has always been my motto and I feel itís the correct way to run a fishing business. 

I have a top of the line 240 LTS Triton, new or practically new rods and reels, and some of the best tackle on the market. My Humminbird 999ci HD si is essential for finding the structure where the fish are congregating when we are out scouting around for that elusive trophy fish. 

Lastly, lets talk about whatís to come in November. The big reds should start to make their way into the bays in a few weeks. As soon as we get a few major cold fronts, it will kick off the fall redfish run. Iím happy to announce that the bay is full of bait and when I say full, Iím not exaggerating. All the blood-minnows and Menhaden are pouring out of the upper bay estuaries.

With all the bait in the bay, it wonít be long before reds get here.
Hope everyone has a great week. Iíll post a new report near on Halloween.
Till then, hereís wishing you bent rods and screaming drags.


If you would like to hook into a monster redfish like this, then book a trip this 

November or December trust me when I say it's gonna be fun!!
