While the weather has been marginal at best, the fishing has been great when the weather allows us to get out there! Inshore we are starting to see a few of the big bull redfish in Pensacola Bay. We are also seeing a few starting to show up along Pensacola Beach. Sight fishing these fish in the shallow water is a blast! Using bucktail jigs or large curly tail grubs have had best results for these fish. Slot redfish are being caught as well with live bait on Carolina Rigs in the lower parts of Pensacola Bay. With the lower water temps. bait will become scarce making these fish really hungry! 

Offshore we are seeing a few pelagics still around. We took a trip out deep and trolled up a few Mahi and a nice black fin tuna. We also heard numerous reports of wahoo and even a few marlin! While we were out there we bottom fished and caught a few nice groupers and even managed a crazy King Snake EEL! This thing was over 6 foot long!! Got some meat in the fridge and gunna give it a shot to see how it is. If you can catch the weather just right the fishing is awesome right now! On a fishing charter yesterday we had a good variety of keeper snappers in the box. Vermillion, Mangrove, and Lane snapper were biting pretty good and ended up having a good box for the clients to take home. Hope to see y 'all on the water! 

Thanks and be safe
