Pensacola Fishing Reports September 2013 /
Pensacola Fishing Charter – Inshore
Now’s a good time to go after all of the king and Spanish mackerel in Pensacola Bay because they will start disappearing as the cold weather arrives.
Grouper fishing has been great in Pensacola Bay, but you might have to weed through a few red snapper to get to them.
There’s a long list of spots where you can find speckled trout, redfish, and flounder right now. If you want to target all three at the same time try the Pensacola Bay Bridge or Bob Sikes Bridge.
Pensacola Deep Sea Fishing – Offshore
It’s starting to sound repetitious week after week, but bottom fishing currently you should be able to find plenty of amberjack, scamp, and vermillion snapper, along with the occasional gag or red grouper.
For those who aren’t able to get way offshore, but would like to catch something cool now is a great time to fish within a couple of miles of the beach in search of sailfish,dolphin, and blackfin tuna. There has been a pretty good number of both caught recently.
Pensacola Fishing – Piers & Beaches
Anglers at Bob Sikes Bridge and Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge have been doing real well with redfish and white trout, along with catching a few Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, and flounder. Your best bet is to fish with live shrimp around the pilings.
According to the reports just about anything is possible right now on the Pensacola Beach Gulf Fishing Pier or Navarre Beach Fishing Pier. All of the normal species this time of year are being caught, but there have been numerous shots at sailfish, dolphin, and blackfin tuna this week.
Fishing Pensacola – Freshwater
Anglers fishing around the river mouths on the Escambia, Perdido, Blackwater and other nearby rivers have been finding a fair amount of bass and bream. Although be prepared to come across redfish, speckled trout, and flounder if you’re fishing the lower parts of any of the rivers.
