Hot Spots Report for Pensacola Fishing Charters October 2014
Pensacola Fishing Charters – Inshore
Fishing for redfish and flounder has been pretty good in Pensacola Pass and around other structure spots like deep docks and bridges in Pensacola Bay.
A few king mackerel are being caught around the Pensacola Bay Bridge, but the best bite is definitely yet to come. This weekend looks very promising with the temperature dropping into the fifties overnight.
Quite a few mangrove snapper are being caught around the bridges and any type of rock pile or jetty. Live bait is almost a must when fishing for them, I prefer either alewives or shrimp.
Deep Sea Fishing Pensacola – Offshore
Big seas have kept most offshore anglers at the dock and it looks like we have a couple more days of rough weather on the way.
If you can get out there you should be able to do pretty well with the bottom dwellers. If you’re looking to catch something you can bring home for dinner then vermillion snapper are a great option considering the limit is ten per person and they are fairly easy to catch.
The kings will slowly start disappearing, but there was a few caught around the sea buoy and USS Massachusetts this past weekend.
Fishing Charters Pensacola – Piers & Beaches
Now’s a great time to fish Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge, Bob Sikes Bridge, and Fort Pickens Pier. Every day is a little different, but a variety of species are possible catches including redfish, flounder, mangrove snapper, bluefish, and Spanish mackerel.
It’s been hit or miss, but it’s time to start looking for pompano in the surf. Just look for a good hole or washout and give it a shot.
Pensacola Inshore Charters – Freshwater
Several people have reported doing well with big catfish while fishing the deeper parts of the Escambia River at night. As you might expect the bass and bream action should get better each week as the water temperature continues to drop.
