Fishing Report for Pensacola Florida 8/27/18-9/3/18

Hey everyone. New to the forum here. I'd like to give up to date information on the fishing in Pensacola Florida. I run a guide service and am on the water constantly. Hopefully I don't get bashed for putting this post in the wrong area but figured I would help anyone fishing in the Pensacola area. So Here is the Report for the previous week!

While most of the week was messed up due to the weather, the days we did get to go the fish were biting!!! We caught quite a few Spanish mackerel in the Gulf using live pilchards and tsunami glass minnow jigs! trolling the jigs and drift fishing the live baits provided the best results. Inshore we are seeing a lot of redfish. We are using live pilchards on a Carolina rig to catch these hard fighting great eating fish. Also we are catching quite a few mangrove snapper and flounder as well. these fish are caught using the same rigs as mentioned for the red fish. finding a good piece of structure is key to the success of catching these fish. If you have been wondering about booking a charter in Pensacola Florida now is the time! With the water temperature dropping with upcoming cold fronts we are sure to see a lot of action!
