Hot Spots Report for Pensacola Fishing Charters March 2014
Pensacola Fishing Charters – Inshore
Unfortunately the sheepshead fishing still isn’t up to par, but now that March has arrived the bite should turn on any day. With the neap tide this weekend you may even have to work a little harder to get them to bite, but it’s worth a try.
On the other hand fishing for redfish has been pretty good in a number of different places. Of course you can find them on the flats in Santa Rosa Sound, Big Lagoon, and the upper bays, but there has also been quite a few around deep docks and structure.
Charter Fishing Pensacola – Offshore
The bottom fishing reports have been different from one angler to another, but you should be able to find plenty of amberjack on the big wrecks and also some vermillion snapper out there.
The weather forecast looks great for the next couple of days so now’s as good of a time as any to head for the floating rigs in search of tuna. Bait may be hard to come by, so be sure to bring some to get you started chunking.
Inshore Fishing Pensacola – Piers & Beaches
The light southeast wind this weekend should make for some good surf fishing. Just grab some live sand fleas and fresh shrimp and hit the beach. Pompano, whiting, and redfish are likely catches in the surf right now.
The action on all of the local piers and bridges has been hit or miss, but should be picking up shortly. Sheepshead will be the most targeted species over the next month and can be caught on most of our local piers, especially Pensacola Beach Gulf Fishing Pier, Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge, and Bob Sikes Bridge.
Pensacola Inshore Charters – Freshwater
According to a couple different reports the water temps on the local rivers are on the rise and the bass bite has been pretty good considering the amount of rain recently. Anglers should also start seeing the bream fishing get good over the next two or three weeks.
