Pensacola Fishing Charters
April 10, 2017
Hot Spots Charters had a spectacular weekend with pile of trips and some great catches. Spring break has come and gone for a lot of people, but the weather is absolutely perfect for fishing right now so if you’ve been thing about booking a trip now’s the time to do it.
Captain Andy Arnold had one of the best inshore trips we’ve seen all year from Pensacola fishing charters. On Saturday, he bought back to the dock a boat load of Spanish mackerel, four nice flounder, a handful of keeper bay mangrove snapper, and a couple in keeper redfish.
Captain Tyler Massey has been spending a lot of time fishing the docks in Santa Rosa Sound for redfish. This is always an option for Pensacola fishing charters. It’s pretty simple fishing, the reds are either there or they aren’t. You just roll up to the dock with live shrimp and pitch them under there.
Captain Bob Potomski has been finding some speckled trout early in the morning on the flats and then bouncing around Pensacola Bay looking for everything else around structure. We should really start seeing some good speckled trout fishing over the next couple of weeks.
If you’re going to fish with us in the next couple of weeks you have quite a few options. First off a decent amount of Spanish mackerel have shown up and we catch them by trolling along the beach out in the Gulf of Mexico on Pensacola fishing charters.
Fishing around Pensacola Pass and other structure in Pensacola Bay we’re finding a few sheepshead still along with some mangrove snapper and flounder. For the most part this fishing is done using live shrimp on Carolina rigs and dropping to the bottom.
We’re not sure when it’s going to close, but as of right now amberjack is still open in Florida state waters, which is up to nine nautical miles from the beach. It’s like this season closes later this month when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meets.
