Pensacola Fishing Charters
April 7, 2017
The wind finally slacked off a little bit today and all of our captains were able to get on the water and find some fish. Pensacola fishing charters has battled some brutal weather this week with heavy rains and strong winds, 30 knots several days believe it or not.
Captain Mike Gasparino picked around and was able to find some sheepshead, mangrove snapper, and a redfish. Unfortunately, this year sheepshead fishing has been nothing like years past, the sheepshead bite just really never got very good.
Captain Tyler Massey decided to hide from the fishable, but not fun wind and ventured into Santa Rosa Sound and found a decent bite of redfish. He caught a bunch that had to be thrown back, but easily had enough keepers for the customers to take home for dinner.
Captain Andy Arnold took advantage of the north wind and went out into the Gulf of Mexico and caught some Spanish mackerel trolling up and down the beach. This is always a great option if you have kids joining you on your trip and are looking for some good entertainment.
Captain Bob Potomski had a catch and release trip so he took advantage of the closed red snapper season that Pensacola fishing charters is currently dealing with and hammered some big red snapper right here in Pensacola Bay. That’s one fishery that a lot of people don’t know we have in Pensacola and Pensacola Beach, due to the depth of Pensacola Bay we catch snapper without ever having to go into the Gulf.
Captain Chaz Heller had an offshore trip on his 34 venture and he made it out to the edge where he picked up a couple blackfin tuna and some king mackerel. Believe it or not red snapper, gag grouper, amberjack, and triggerfish are all closed in waters off Pensacola.
Pensacola Fishing Charters has both inshore and offshore charter available daily so you just have to give it some thought and decide what you’re looking to do.
