Hot Spots Report for Pensacola Fishing Charters June 2016
Inshore – Pensacola Inshore Fishing Charters
Speckled trout are being caught on the grass flats early in the morning, but once the sun gets up you’ll want to look for them around structure in deeper water. The pinfish can make it hard to fish with shrimp this time of year so I would stick to artificial lures and fish baits.
Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bluefish, and hardtails can be found up and down the beaches out in the Gulf if you’re looking for some steady action.
Offshore – Pensacola Deep Sea Fishing
Looks like we have some pretty decent weather in store for this weekend so it should allow anglers to get offshore and get those red snapper. Just remember that Saturday June 11 will be the final day for recreational anglers to harvest them in federal waters, but state will remain open.
Offshore fishing for tuna, wahoo, dolphin, and billfish has been great. You can find some action as close as the Nipple or venture on out to the deep water rigs.
Piers & Beaches – Pensacola Fishing Charters
You can expect a mixed bag of species this time of year on any of the inshore piers like the Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge, Bob Sikes Bridge, or Fort Pickens Pier. Your best bet is to fish with live shrimp or alewives because just about anything will eat them.
Spanish and king mackerel continue to be the most targeted species on the Pensacola Beach Gulf Fishing Pier and Navarre Beach Fishing Pier. It’s always a good idea to bring some cigar minnows and a Gotcha Lures when fishing the beach piers during the summer.
Freshwater – Fishing Charters Pensacola
Like I said last week with the hot weather now it’s a must to get out there early if you’re looking for action on one of the local rivers or lakes. Reports have varied from one angler to another, but it sounds like the bite on the rivers has been pretty tough for the most part.
