Pensacola Fishing Report July 2013 /
Fishing Charter Pensacola – Inshore
It’s getting to be that time in the summer where inshore fishing can get tough due to the heat. Right now you should be able to find plenty of specks on the flats early in the morning, but once it heats up you’ll likely see the bite shut down.
Redfish and flounder are being found around structure and on drop-offs and ledges. Pensacola Pass and the deeper docks in Santa Rosa Sound and Big Lagoon are a couple good places to try.
Live I’ve said the past couple of weeks if you’re just looking for fun there are tons of ladyfish, bluefish, hardtails, and a few Spanish mackerel out along the beaches.
Pensacola Fishing Charters – Offshore
Anglers should have no trouble catching king mackerel right now around many of the wrecks, buoys, and along the beaches. This time of year if you can find the bait you will likely find the kings as well.
Red snapper is now closed in both state and federal waters, so if you’re looking to catch bottom dwellers you can keep you’ll want to target gag grouper, vermilion snapper, black snapper, and scamp.
Fishing Charter – Piers & Beaches
Tarpon and king mackerel have been the word from those fishing at the Pensacola Beach Gulf Fishing Pier and Navarre Beach Fishing Pier. The tarpon can be very hard to get to bite, but anglers are managing to catch a few.
Every day seems to be a little different for anglers on the Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge and Bob Sikes. You can use different techniques to target different species, but right now redfish, white trout, Spanish mackerel, and black snapper are likely catches.
Inshore Fishing Charter Pensacola – Freshwater
The large amount of rain recently hasn’t done those looking for freshwater action any favors, but according to a couple different reports anglers are still finding bass, bream, and catfish. With the high water level you may want to try the small creeks and ponds off the main rivers.
