Yesterday, Redfish University performed guide trips #149 and #150 for the 2012 season. Our goal was 150 trips for the year so that’s not too shabby for an extremely specialized guide service in NW Florida. Honestly, the plan was 2-3 trips per week but sometimes things just don’t go as planned. We accredit this success to excellent customer service, customer satisfaction and incredible results. This translates into a unparalleled reputation and huge repeat business. Thank you Redfish University anglers.

The last few days have been spectacular with huge numbers of speckled trout, legal/oversized redfish, schools of 4-10# black drum, some flounder, big jacks and of course, the sharks are always around. The early morning hours are providing some excellent topwater opportunities for redfish and trout while the afternoons require a reverse order. Typically, I will warmup Redfish University anglers with some fun jumping sharks or topwater jacks. These are extremely easy targets and a great time-filler while we wait for the tides and the afternoon cool off. Around 430pm we will head east and attack the redfish, trout and black drum. Two Grand Slam trips on Tuesday and Wednesday and Aegean Breeze is rounding out my anglers great Pensacola experience with some blackened redfish, fried trout and stuffed flounder. Sometimes I feel my clients enjoy Starvos’ cooking more than my guiding!! Thanks again, E Holstman
