Pensacola Fishing Report November 2013 /
Charter Fishing Pensacola – Inshore
The warm weather just will not go away this year, but all things considered inshore fishing has been excellent lately.
Now’s a good time to go after flounder with both a rod and reel or a gig. Of course the gigging will improve once the cold fronts start moving through. If you want to target them with hook and line just fish around structure in Pensacola Bay.
Fishing for redfish has been good and will only get better this month. They are being caught around structure like the jetties in Pensacola Pass and the Pensacola Bay Bridge.
Spanish and king mackerel are both still being found in Pensacola Bay. If you want to go after the kings just catch some live menhaden and slow troll or fish with balloons.
Deep Sea Fishing Pensacola – Offshore
Kayakers and anglers on small boats have had a hay day lately going out in the gulf and landing a bunch of dolphin within a couple miles of the beach. There are also still plenty of kings out there, so go before the cold weather comes and shuts it down.
A number of captains this week stated that if you can stay away from the sharks and porpoises offshore you can do great bottom fishing. Amberjack, gag grouper, scamp, and vermillion snapper are all open for harvest right now.
Pensacola Fishing – Piers & Beaches
Kings and Spanish mackerel has shown back up at Pensacola Beach Gulf Fishing Pier the past few days. Pier fisherman also got a shot at those near shore dolphin earlier this week. If you’re going out there be prepared with some cigar minnows and a Gotcha Lure.
Pensacola Fishing Charters – Freshwater
Jim’s Fish Camp, located off Highway 90, reported that anglers have been catching quite a few bream and shell cracker in the Escambia and other nearby rivers using crickets and worms. Largemouth bass fishing has been decent, but striped bass have been few and far between.
