A few flounder showing up on the shorelines. 11/18/2015
Bull redfish are an easy target for inshore anglers looking for action. Big schools of them are being found throughout Pensacola Bay and once you have them located they will eat just about anything.
A few flounder are being gigged, but from the reports I’ve heard it hasn’t been that great. There’s a good chance that we see a heavy push of fish make their way to the gulf when the next couple of cold fronts come through.
If you’re looking for some steady action to take the family fishing during the holidays go after the white trout around the Pensacola Bay Bridge.
Gag grouper season will be closing in both state and federal waters in a couple of weeks so now’s the time to go if the weather gives you a chance.
The vermillion snapper and scamp bite has been pretty good so you should be able to bring home a nice box of bottom dwellers right now.
The reports have been few and far between, but the few boats who’ve ventured offshore in search of billfish and other pelagic species have done well recently.
Piers & Beaches
This time of year there’s nothing better for land locked anglers than the white trout and redfish bite on the Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge.
Surf fishing has been pretty good as well when the weathers cooperates. Ideally you want the wind out of the south or southeast, but not so rough that you can’t keep a bait out. You can expect to catch redfish, whiting, and an occasional pompano.
According to Jim’s Fish Camp located on Highway 90 near the Escambia River anglers have been finding a fair amount of bass throughout the day using soft plastics with a jig head. There’s also been a few reports lately of a decent amount of catfish being caught at night.
